Softening the naturalness problem

It was observed by Veltman a long time ago that a special value for the Higgs boson mass could lead to a cancellation of the quadratically divergent corrections to the Higgs boson’s squared mass which appear at one loop. We present a class of low energy models that allow one to soften the naturalness problem in the sense that there can be a cancellation of radiative corrections appearing at one loop. The naturalness problem is shifted from the 1 TeV region to the 10 TeV region. Depending on the specific model under consideration, this scale can even be shifted to a higher energy scale. Signatures of these models are discussed.
