A bstractYang-Mills-Higgs theory offers a rich set of physics. In particular, in some region of its parameter space it has QCD-like behavior, while in some other range it is Higgs-like. Furthermore, for the choice of the gauge group SU(2) and an SU(2) Higgs flavor symmetry it is the Higgs sector of the standard model. Therefore, it is possible to study a plethora of phenomena within a single theory. Here the standard-model version is studied using lattice gauge theory. Choosing non-aligned… 
Non-perturbative aspects of Yang-Mills-Higgs theory
Yang-Mills-Higgs theory, being a part of the Standard Model, presents a great opportunity for investigation both from the point of view of theory and phenomenology. It contains regions in the
Confinement interpretation in a Yang-Mills + Higgs theory when considering Gribov's ambiguity
This work presents concisely the results obtained from the analysis of the two-point function of the gauge field in the SU(2) and SU(2) U(1) gauge theories, in the Landau gauge, coupled to a scalar
Observables in Higgsed Theories
The physical spectrum of theories with a Brout-Englert-Higgs effect
The physical, observable spectrum in gauge theories is made up from gauge-invariant states. In the standard model of particle physics the Fröhlich-Morchio-Strocchi mechanism shows that these states
A study of how the particle spectra of SU(N) gauge theories with a fundamental Higgs emerge
In gauge theories, the physical, experimentally observable spectrum consists only of gauge-invariant states. In the standard model the Fr\"ohlich-Morchio-Strocchi mechanism shows that these states
Exploring Higgs boson Yukawa interactions with a scalar singlet using Dyson-Schwinger equations
Higgs, being the first discovery of a fundamental scalar field in the standard model (SM), opens the possibility of existence of other scalar or pseudo scalar particles in nature. Though it does not

The Higgs mechanism was inspired by phenomena in solid state physics. By then it was already known that strictly speaking, there is no spontaneous breaking of a (local) gauge symmetry. This implies

The propagator of a fundamental scalar is studied in two, three, and four dimensions in quenched SU(2) Yang–Mills theory in minimal Landau gauge, both in momentum space and position space and the results suggest a quite intricate volume dependence and the presence of an intrinsic mass scale, but no obvious connection to confinement.
Some remarks on the spectral functions of the Abelian Higgs model
We consider the unitary Abelian Higgs model and investigate its spectral functions at one-loop order. This analysis allows to disentangle what is physical and what is not at the level of the


Semiclassical analysis of the phases of 4d SU(2) Higgs gauge systems with cutoff at the Gribov horizon
We present an analytical study of continuum 4d SU(2) gauge-Higgs models with a single Higgs field with fixed length in either the fundamental or adjoint representation. We aim at analytically probing
Accessing directly the properties of fundamental scalars in the confinement and Higgs phase
The properties of elementary particles are encoded in their respective propagators and interaction vertices. For a SU(2) gauge theory coupled to a doublet of fundamental complex scalars these
Phase diagrams of lattice gauge theories with Higgs fields
We study the phase diagram of lattice gauge theories coupled to fixed-length scalar (Higgs) fields. We consider several gauge groups: Z/sub 2/, U(1), and SU(N). We find that when the Higgs fields
An asymptotic safety scenario for gauged chiral Higgs–Yukawa models
We investigate chiral Higgs–Yukawa models with a non-abelian gauged left-handed sector reminiscent to a sub-sector of the standard model. We discover a new weak-coupling fixed-point behavior that
More on Gribov copies and propagators in Landau-gauge Yang-Mills theory
Fixing a gauge in the nonperturbative domain of Yang-Mills theory is a nontrivial problem due to the presence of Gribov copies. In particular, there are different gauges in the nonperturbative regime

A bstractWe investigate the Dyson-Schwinger equations for the gluon and ghost propagators and the ghost-gluon vertex of Landau-gauge gluodynamics in two dimensions. While this simplifies some aspects
Exploratory study of three-point Green's functions in Landau-gauge Yang-Mills theory
Green’s functions are a central element in the attempt to understand non-perturbative phenomena in Yang-Mills theory. Besides the propagators, 3-point Green’s functions play a significant role, since
