The theory of wormholes and multiverse suggests that the parameters of the Standard Model are fixed such that the total entropy at the late stage of the universe is maximized. We consider the radiation of the universe as a function of the Higgs expectation value and show that it reaches maximum around the observed value 246 GeV. It turns out that the existence of the atomic nuclei plays a crucial role to maximize the radiation.

There are many open questions that the Standard Model cannot answer. One of them is the smallness of the Higgs expectation value vh compared with the Planck scale. In their latest work, Dr Yuta Hamada, Dr Hikaru Kawai and Dr Kiyoharu Kawana at Kyoto University, consider the radiation S of the universe at the late stage as a function of vh, and they show that S reaches its maximum around the observed value vh = 246 GeV.

"If we demand that S should be maximized, this conclusion can be the explanation to the above question. The main contribution to S comes from the decay of baryons. We assume that baryons are produced at the early universe by the Sphaleron process. Because some of baryons exist as atomic nuclei, we must consider the effect caused by the binding energy of atomic nuclei and the possibility that a pion produced by the decay of a nucleon in a helium nucleus is scattered by the remaining nucleons and loses its energy", says Dr Kawana.
