The Higgs Mass and New Physics Scales in the Minimal Standard Model


We study the theoretical correlation between the Higgs mass of the minimal standard model and the scale at which new physics is expected to occur. In addition to the classic constraints of unitarity, triviality and vacuum stability, we reexamine the constraints imposed by the precision electroweak data. We then pay particular attention to the constraint imposed by the absence of fine-tuning in the Higgs mass parameter (the Veltman condition). We find that the fine-tuning condition places a significant constraint on the new physics scale for the Higgs mass range 100 GeV < m_h < 200 GeV mostly unconstrained by the classic constraints.Comment: 19 pages Latex, 2 figure
