Making use of a dimensionally-reduced effective theory at high temperature, we perform a nonperturbative study of the electroweak phase transition in the Two Higgs Doublet model. We focus on two phenomenologically allowed points in the parameter space, carrying out dynamical lattice simulations to determine the equilibrium properties of the transition. We discuss the shortcomings of conventional perturbative approaches based on the resummed effective potential — regarding the insufficient handling of infrared resummation but also the need to account for corrections beyond 1-loop order in the presence of large scalar couplings — and demonstrate that greater accuracy can be achieved with perturbative methods within the effective theory. We find that in the presence of very large scalar couplings, strong phase transitions cannot be reliably studied with any of the methods.

Computational and theoretical studies on lattice thermal conductivity and thermal properties of silicon clathrates Härkönen, Ville (University of Jyväskylä, 2016)The lattice thermal conductivity is usually an intrinsic property in the study of thermoelectricity. In particular, relatively low lattice thermal conductivity is usually a desired feature when higher thermoelectric eﬃciency ...
A strong electroweak phase transition from the inflaton field Tenkanen, Tommi; Tuominen, Kimmo; Vaskonen, Ville (Institute of Physics Publishing Ltd.; Scuola Internazionale Superiore di Studi Avanzati (SISSA), 2016)We study a singlet scalar extension of the Standard Model. The singlet scalar is coupled non-minimally to gravity and assumed to drive inflation, and also couple sufficiently strongly with the SM Higgs field in order to ...
Massless positivity in graviton exchange Herrero-Valea, Mario; Santos-Garcia, Raquel; Tokareva, Anna (American Physical Society (APS), 2021)We formulate positivity bounds for scattering amplitudes including exchange of massless particles. We generalize the standard construction through dispersion relations to include the presence of a branch cut along the real ...
