Constraints on Higgs-Inflaton Coupling

Yang, Jessie J.


  • The Higgs field’s potential is known for having a local minimum around 246 GeV where the field sits today so that the Higgs mechanism can give particles mass. However, the potential does not simply rise to infinity but rather reaches a maximum around h ∼ 1011 GeV and then quickly falls to negative infinity. During reheating, resonance between the inflaton and the Higgs could have caused the Higgs ... read more
