Abstract

The detection of primordial gravitational waves would not only have extraordinary implications for our understanding of early cosmology, but would also give non-trivial constraints on Standard Model parameters, under the assumption that no new physics enters below the Higgs instability scale. We study the resulting bounds on the top quark mass and the strong coupling constant, discussing their theoretical uncertainties and their robustness against changes in other parameters.
