The Higgs field as an inflaton    [PDF]

Fedor Bezrukov
The Higgs field of the pure Standard Model can lead to the inflationary expansion of the early Universe if it is non-minimally coupled to gravity. The model predicts CMB parameters in perfect agreement with the current observations, and has implications for the Higgs boson mass. We review the model, its predictions, problems arising with its quantization, and some closely related models.
