Abstract

We will investigate some applications of the renormalization group equation to the study of the effective potential in gauge theories. The project is based on techniques that were developed together with Prof. McKeon as a result of our previous collaborations. During the planned visit, our main focus will be the Higgs mechanism. (AU)
