dc.description.abstractWe discuss Preheating after an inflationary stage driven by the Standard Model (SM) Higgs field non-minimally coupled to gravity. We find that Preheating is driven by a complex process in which perturbative and non-perturbative effects occur simultaneously. The Higgs field, initially an oscillating coherent condensate, produces non-perturbatively W and Z gauge fields. These decay very rapidly into fermions, thus preventing gauge bosons to accumulate and, consequently, blocking the usual parametric resonance. The energy transferred into the fermionic species is, nevertheless, not enough to reheat the Universe, and resonant effects are eventually developed. Soon after resonance becomes effective, also backreaction from the gauge bosons into the Higgs condensate becomes relevant. We have determined the time evolution of the energy distribution among the remnant Higgs condensate and the non-thermal distribution of the SMfermions and gauge fields, until the moment in which backreaction becomes important. Beyond backreaction our approximations break down and numerical simulations and theoretical considerations beyond this work are required, in order to study the evolution of the system until thermalization.en_US
