How Does the Higgs Boson Mass Impact Multiverse and Supersymmetry Theories?

In summary, the experimental value of the Higgs boson mass has significant consequences for theories of multiverse and supersymmetry. It constrains the parameter space of many supersymmetry theories, but does not have a noticeable impact on theories of multiverse. The most interesting consequence is the unexplained correlations between the measured Higgs and top masses and the relationship between the sum of squares of all SM bosons' masses and the square of the Higgs VEV.

The Higgs boson mass significantly constrains the available parameter space of many supersymmetry theories. But, there isn't a really good compact way of describing that impact because there are so many versions of SUSY and so many free parameters in the theory.

It really has no obvious impact on theories of multiverse which really don't deserve the title of "theories" anyway.

Ok. Thank you so much. I still have a lot to study.

The most interesting (for me, can't speak for others) consequence of measured Higgs boson mass value is a few unexplained correlations:

With measured top and Higgs masses, SM sits right on vacuum stability/metastability line.
Sum of squares of all SM bosons' masses is equal to half of square of Higgs VEV to within 0.35%.

1. What is the Higgs Boson mass and why is it important?

The Higgs Boson mass is a fundamental particle in the Standard Model of particle physics. It is responsible for giving other particles their mass through the Higgs mechanism. Its discovery in 2012 provided evidence for the existence of the Higgs field, which is crucial for our understanding of the origin of mass in the universe.

2. How was the Higgs Boson mass discovered?

The Higgs Boson mass was discovered by analyzing data collected by the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN. Scientists observed the decay of Higgs Boson particles into other particles, which confirmed its existence and allowed for the measurement of its mass.

3. What are the consequences of the Higgs Boson mass for our understanding of the universe?

The discovery of the Higgs Boson mass has confirmed the Standard Model of particle physics, which is a crucial framework for our understanding of the fundamental building blocks of the universe. It also provides evidence for the Higgs field, which plays a critical role in the formation of the universe and the origin of mass.

4. Can the Higgs Boson mass be manipulated or controlled?

No, the Higgs Boson mass cannot be manipulated or controlled. It is a fundamental particle that is governed by the laws of physics. However, scientists continue to study its properties and interactions with other particles to further our understanding of the universe.

5. What are the potential future implications of the Higgs Boson mass?

The discovery of the Higgs Boson mass has opened up new avenues for research and could potentially lead to a better understanding of the fundamental forces and particles in the universe. It could also have applications in technologies such as particle accelerators and medical imaging. However, further research is needed to fully understand its implications.
