Description: Built as a manifestly nonlinear quantum field theory (QFT), the Standard Model for particle physics (SM) describes the low-energy interaction of gauge and Higgs bosons with quarks and leptons. Since both Yang-Mills and Higgs bosons are self-interacting fields, their behavior is inevitably sensitive to the transition from order to chaos. Here we point out that quantum corrections to the 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 gauge hierarchy problem. It also implies that perturbative estimates on vacuum stability well above the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) scale may need to be revisited.
