# Matching relations for decoupling in the standard model at two loops and beyond

@article{Martin2019MatchingRF, title={Matching relations for decoupling in the standard model at two loops and beyond}, author={Stephen P. Martin}, journal={Physical Review D}, year={2019} }

I discuss the matching relations for the running renormalizable parameters when the heavy particles (top quark, Higgs scalar, Z and W vector bosons) are simultaneously decoupled from the Standard Model. The complete two-loop order matching for the electromagnetic coupling and all light fermion masses are obtained, augmenting existing results at 4-loop order in pure QCD and complete two-loop order for the strong coupling. I also review the further sequential decouplings of the lighter fermions… Expand

The five-loop term in the beta function which governs the running of α_{s}-the quark-gluon coupling constant in QCD is analyzed to reduce the theory uncertainty and predictions for the effective coupling constants of the standard model Higgs boson to gluons and for its total decay rate to the quarks-antiquark pairs are predicted.
