Standard model vacuum stability and Weyl consistency conditions
- First Online:
At high energy the standard model possesses conformal symmetry at the classical level. This is reflected at the quantum level by relations between the different β functions of the model. These relations are known as the Weyl consistency conditions. We show that it is possible to satisfy them order by order in perturbation theory, provided that a suitable coupling constant counting scheme is used. As a direct phenomenological application, we study the stability of the standard model vacuum at high energies and compare with previous computations violating the Weyl consistency conditions.
