Are there any papers that include the higgs field and the expansion of the universe?

Or where the higgs field is linked to dark energy?

I'm sure I've asked a similar question, but never really arrived at sensible answer.

Here is an earlier discussion

Guess one of the first things you need to work this out is a Higgs VEV
see here
http://arxiv.org/abs/0903.1024

A discussion of the link between Higgs VEV and the cosmological constant.

Discussions on the cosmological constant which might get closer to the answer you want

hope these are helpful.
