## Main Question or Discussion Point

Higgs vacuum expectation value for the Standard Model: (ref. 1 pg. 14)

[tex]v_h = \sqrt{\frac{(\hbar c)^3}{\sqrt{2} G_F}}[/tex]

Higgs mass equation for the Standard Model: (ref. 1 pg. 14)

[tex]m_H = \sqrt{2 \lambda_h} v_h[/tex]

[itex]\lambda_h[/itex] - Higgs self-coupling parameter.

Integration via substitution:

[tex]m_H = \sqrt{2 \lambda_h} v_h = \sqrt{\frac{(\hbar c)^3 \lambda_h}{G_F}}[/tex]

Higgs mass:

[tex]\boxed{m_H = \sqrt{\frac{(\hbar c)^3 \lambda_h}{G_F}}}[/tex]

How was the Higgs mass equation listed in reference 1 page 14 derived?
