Abstract

Numerical simulations are performed to study the finite temperature phase transition in the SU(2) Higgs model on the lattice. The strength of the first order phase transition is investigated by determining the latent heat and the interface tension on Lt = 2 lattices. The values of the Higgs boson mass presently chosen are below 50 GeV. Our results are in qualitative agreement with two-loop resummed perturbation theory.
