Title: The One and Two Loops Renormalization Group Equations in the Standard Model

Abstract

In the context of the Standard Model (SM), we compare the analytical and the numerical solutions of the Renormalization Group Equations (RGE) for the relevant couplings to one and two loops. This information will be an important ingredient for the precise evaluation of boundary values on the physical Higgs Mass.

  • In this paper we present the renormalization group equations to one-loop order for all the parameters of two supersymmetric left-right theories that are softly broken. Both models are based upon the gauge group SU(3){sup c}xSU(2){sub L}xSU(2){sub R}xU(1){sub B-L} and both contain an arbitrary number of bidoublets as well as singlets; however, one model uses doublets to break SU(2){sub R} and the other uses triplets.
  • Within the framework of the standard model plus one heavy Higgs triplet, we derive a full set of one-loop renormalization group equations of the neutrino mass matrix and Higgs couplings in both full and effective theories. The explicit RGEs of neutrino masses, flavor mixing angles and CP-violating phases are also obtained, and their nontrivial running behaviors around the Higgs triplet mass threshold are numerically illustrated.
  • Yukawa theory at vanishing temperature provides (one of the ingredients for) an effective description of the thermodynamics of a variety of cold and dense fermionic systems. We study the role of masses and the renormalization group flow in the calculation of the equation of state up to two loops within the MS scheme. Two-loop integrals are computed analytically for arbitrary fermion and scalar masses, and expressed in terms of well-known special functions. The dependence of the renormalization group flow on the number of fermion flavors is also discussed.
  • In this paper we summarize the minimal supersymmetric standard model as well as the renormalization group equations of its parameters. We proceed to examine the feasibility of the model when the breaking of supersymmetry is parametrized by the soft terms suggested by supergravity theories. In such models, the electroweak symmetry is exact at the treee level and is broken spontaneously at one loop order. We make the additional assumption that the GUT-inspired relation [ital m][sub [ital b]]=[ital m][sub [tau]] be valid at the scale where the gauge coupling constants unify, which constrains the value of the top quark mass. Formore » all types of soft breaking terms expected in supergravity theories, we present the results of numerical runs which yield electroweak breaking at the required scale. These yield not only the allowed ranges for the soft supersymmetry-breaking parameters, but also the value of the supersymmetric partners' masses. Taking [ital m][sub [ital b]]=[ital m][sub [tau]] at the unification scale, [ital M][sub [ital b]]=4.9 GeV, and [alpha][sub 3]([ital M][sub [ital Z]])=0.118, we find that for the models in which global supersymmetry breaking arises slowly from soft gaugino masses and bilinear mixing between the two Higgs scalars the top quark mass can be no lighter than [similar to]180 GeV.« less
  • In this paper we present a comprehensive analysis of the running of {ital all} the couplings of the standard model to two loops, including threshold effects. Our purpose is twofold---to determine what the running of these parameters may indicate for the physics of the standard model and to provide a template for the study of its extensions up to the Planck mass.
