I know that Maxican-Hat potential is for tachyonic particle, says(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

[itex]V(\phi)=-\frac{\lambda}{2}|\phi|^2 + \frac{g}{4!}|\phi|^4[/itex]

But why does Higgs' potential take the same form of this?? Even though higgs boson is not a tachyon??

Tell me if my question is not clear. Thanks in advance for the answer.
