RIKEN/BNL Lunch Time Talk

"The Higgs boson mass -- what does it mean for the Standard Model?"

Presented by Fedor Bezrukov, University of Connecticut/RBRC

Thursday, August 16, 2012, 12:30 pm — Building 510 / Room 2-160

The Higgs boson with the mass recently announced by the LHC experiments corresponds within current precision to the boundary value between the situations when the electroweak vacuum is stable and metastable. I will discuss the latest developments in the calculation of this boundary mass and importance of measurement of other SM parameters (top quark mass and the strong coupling constant). I will also discuss what is the meaning of this boundary value in various minimal modifications of the Standard Model.
