I will discuss the Higgs inflation and its prediction in different regions. While for generic values of the Higgs boson mass the amount of tensor waves generated at inflation is predicted to be rather small, for the Higgs mass very close to the critical value (corresponding to the boundary of the metastability of the electroweak vacuum) the radiative corrections become very important. In this regime inflation with significant production of the gravity waves is possible.
