Counting of states in Higgs theories
/ Hertzberg, Mark P. ; Jain, Mudit
We enumerate the microstates in Higgs theories, addressing (i) the number of vacuum states and (ii) the appropriate measure in the quantum path integral. [...]

A Correlation between the Higgs Mass and Dark Matter
/ Hertzberg, Mark P.
Depending on the value of the Higgs mass, the Standard Model acquires an unstable region at large Higgs field values due to RG running of couplings, which we evaluate at 2loop order. [...]

Quantum and classical behavior in interacting bosonic systems
/ Hertzberg, Mark P.
It is understood that in free bosonic theories, the classical field theory accurately describes the full quantum theory when the occupancy numbers of systems are very large. [...]

Can compactifications solve the cosmological constant problem?
/ Hertzberg, Mark P. ; Masoumi, Ali
Recently, there have been claims in the literature that the cosmological constant problem can be dynamically solved by specific compactifications of gravity from higherdimensional toy models. [...]

A density spike on astrophysical scales from an N field waterfall transition
/ Halpern, Illan F. ; Hertzberg, Mark P. ; Joss, Matthew A. ; Sfakianakis, Evangelos I.
Hybrid inflation models are especially interesting as they lead to a spike in the density power spectrum on small scales, compared to the CMB, while also satisfying current bounds on tensor modes. [...]
