Description: The Standard Model for particle physics (SM) is a nonlinear field theory in which both Yang-Mills and Higgs bosons are self-interacting objects. Their classical or quantum evolution is inevitably sensitive to the transition from order to chaos. With some noteworthy exceptions, the mainstream of theoretical particle physics has ignored the dynamical contribution of chaos in Quantum Field Theory. Here we point out that quantum corrections to the classical interaction of the Higgs with gauge bosons may lower the threshold for the onset of chaos and destabilize the vacuum in the low or intermediate TeV scale. The inability of the vacuum to survive in this energy region hints to a straightforward solution for the fine-tuning problem. It also implies that perturbative estimates on vacuum stability well above the LHC scale are likely to be invalid.
