Upper bounds on the higgs mass

  • R. Rodenberg


Using radiative corrections as the origin of spontaneous symmetry breaking (SSB), charged and neutral Higgs boson masses can be derived easily. Taking into account that B0, a possible representant of the pseudotensor term, the axion a0 and the supersymmetric U-boson belong to the same spectrum in the Higgs sector, experimental constraints allow us to estimate mH0 ≲349 GeV and mH± ≲125 GeV for mt ⩽ 80 GeV.
