# Higgs Coupling in the moments after the Big Bang

How did the Higgs interaction differ due to the densities, temperatures, pressures, etc. in the moments following the big bang? I am aware that around $$10^{-43}$$ seconds all the fundamental forces were thought to be unified into a single force.

With that being said what was the progression of the Higgs interaction during this time and the following moments.

As far as I know, the Higgs mechanism ( not interaction)concept would be inactive after the breaking off of gravity from a unified symmetric model: the standard mode particles in that soup would have zero mass until the time of electroweak breaking in the plot, about $$10^{-12}$$ seconds after the BB. It is at that time that the energy of the universe reaches the electroweak breaking energy connected with the vacuum expectation value of the higgs field, It is then that the particles acquire mass, including the Higgs boson. In the interval before it follows the structure given in this link.
