[en] The relevance and usefulness of lattice /phi/4 for particle physics is discussed from older and newer points of view. The talk will start with a review of the main ideas and suggestions in my work in the past with Dashen and will proceed to present newer developments both on the conceptual and the practical level. 12 refs
[en] In this work we study the behaviour of Yang–Mills–Chern–Simons theory coupled to a Higgs field in the fundamental representation by taking into account the effects of the presence of the Gribov horizon. By analyzing the infrared structure of the gauge field propagator, both confined and de-confined regions can be detected. The confined region corresponds to the appearance of complex poles in the propagators, while the de-confined one to the presence of real poles. One can move from one region to another by changing the parameters of the theory. (paper)
[en] Supersymmetric models have traditionally been assumed to be perturbative up to high scales due to the requirement of calculable unification. In this note I review the recently proposed 'Fat Higgs' model which relaxes the requirement of perturbativity. In this framework, an NMSSM-like trilinear coupling becomes strong at some intermediate scale. The NMSSM Higgses are meson composites of an asymptotically-free gauge theory. This allows us to raise the mass of the Higgs, thus alleviating the MSSM of its fine tuning problem. Despite the strong coupling at an intermediate scale, the UV completion allows us to maintain gauge coupling unification.
[en] Seesaw model is an attractive model because it may explain baryogenesis through leptogenesis and also may explain the small neutrino mass. The supersymmetric seesaw model may be more attractive because the naturalness problem is absent in supersymmetric theory. Recently, the Higgs mass correction due to leptons and sleptons loops is computed. In this talk, we report on the preliminary results on the one loop corrections of leptons and sleptons loops to the effective action of Higgs sector for super symmetric seesaw model. Our results show that the corrections to the mass parameters for Higgs sector are proportional to the soft breaking parameters of supersymmetric seesaw model, while for the quartic couplings of Higgs fields, the corrections are suppressed by inverse powers of the right-handed neutrino mass.

[en] We show that the well known Georgi-Machacek (GM) model can be realized as a limit of the recently constructed Supersymmetric Custodial Higgs Triplet Model (SCTM) which in general contains a significantly more complex scalar spectrum. We dub this limit of the SCTM, which gives a weakly coupled origin for the GM model at the electroweak scale, the Supersymmetric GM (SGM) model. We derive a mapping between the SGM and GM models using it to show how a supersymmetric origin implies constraints on the Higgs potential in conventional GM model constructions which would generically not be present. We then perform a simplified phenomenological study of diphoton and signals for a pair of benchmark scenarios to illustrate under what circumstances the GM model can mimic the SGM model and when they should be easily distinguishable.
[en] Recently a new inflationary scenario was proposed in  which can be applicable to an inflaton having multiple vacua. In this letter, we consider a more general situation where the inflaton potential has a (UV) saddle point around the Planck scale. This class of models can be regarded as a natural generalization of the hillclimbing Higgs inflation .
[en] The Higgs sector of renormalizable models of weak and electromagnetic interactions is discussed. The idea is that the usual Higgs system in a perturbation theory context is a highly simplified representant of a much more complex system. It is concluded that in general, in the limit of large Higgs mass the renormalizable model becomes an 'almost' renormalizable model and certain amplitudes must blow up if the Higg mass is taken to infinity. As such the Higgs mass should not exceed 600 GeV
