SM- Higgs quartic coupling

  • #1

Main Question or Discussion Point

Hi all,

I'm little confused about the maximal appropriate value for the SM Higgs quartic coupling and the Higgs mass = 125 GeV. that as ## \lambda =m_h^2 / 2 v^2 \simeq 0.1 ## for ##v = 246 ~ GeV##.

But according to the perturbation theory, ##\lambda ## enters into higher order corrections as ##\lambda/(4 \pi)##. So that the very generic limit from perturbativity constraint is ## \lambda/(4 \pi) < 1 ## or ## \lambda < 4 \pi ##.

Now after loop correction, say ## \lambda = 10 ##, it won't any more account for the SM Higgs mass !

Best.

That's not a physical limit. It's a region of validity for a particular calculation.

But it's not. As you showed earlier, it's two orders of magnitude smaller.
