Abstract

I discuss the stability of the SM scalar potential in view of the discovery of a Higgs boson with mass around 125 GeV. The role played by the top quark mass in the choice between the full stability and the metastability conditions is analyzed in detail. The present experimental value of the top mass do not support the possibility that the SM potential is stable up to the Planck scale but favor an electroweak vacuum sufficiently long-lived to be metastable.
