3Dimensional approach to hot electroweak matter for M_{Higgs} <= 70 GeV
Abstract
We study the electroweak phase transition by lattice simulations of an effective 3dimensional theory, for a Higgs mass of about 70 GeV. Exploiting a variant of the equal weight criterion of phase equilibrium, we obtain transition temperature, latent heat and surface tension and compare with M _{H} ≈ 35 GeV. For the symmetric phase, bound state masses and the static force are determined and compared with results for pure SU(2) theory.
