Seminar to be conducted via zoom.

Speaker: Anson Hook, UMD

Title : Relaxing the Higgs mass

Abstract : We present a new approach to the Hierarchy problem utilizing self organized criticality. The Higgs mass is generically large, but when expanded around the minimum of the potential, the Higgs mass is small. This approach is analogous to models of the dilaton where the quartic is large at tree level, but small when expanded around the minimum of the potential. The model presented solves the little Hierarchy problem and is testable at colliders, in stellar environments and at fifth force experiments.
