An Upper Bound on the Higgs Self-Coupling and Higgs Boson Mass from the Positivity Condition of the Mass Matrix
Author(s) Partha Pratim Pal*
ABSTRACT
The actual value of Higgs boson mass is difficult to determine theoretically due to lack of knowledge on the exact value of Higgs self coupling constant l. The purpose of this paper is to obtain an upper bound on the Higgs mass in the Standard Model on the basis of one-loop effective potential in the ’t Hooft-Landau gauge and MS scheme. The condition of positivity of mass matrix at ф = ф0 (where ф0 is the absolute minimum of the effective potential) of the scalar field gives an upper bound on the Higgs self coupling as l ≤ 0.881. This condition yields an upper bound on the Higgs mass as mH ≤ 229.48 GeV.
