Threedimensional lattice studies of the electroweak phase transition at 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, among others, 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. In the broken phase masses and Higgs condensates are compared to perturbation theory. For the symmetric phase, bound state masses and the static force are determined.
