A Minimally Symmetric Higgs Boson  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Models addressing the naturalness of a light Higgs boson typically employ symmetries, either bosonic or fermionic, to stabilize the Higgs mass. We consider a setup with the minimal amount of symmetries: four shift symmetries acting on the four components of the Higgs doublet, subject to the constraints of linearly realized SU(2)xU(1) electroweak symmetry. Up to terms that explicitly violate the shift symmetries, the effective lagrangian can be derived, irrespective of the spontaneously broken group G in the ultraviolet, and is universal in all models where the Higgs arises as a pseudo-Nambu-Goldstone boson (PNGB). Very high energy scatterings of vector bosons could provide smoking gun signals of a minimally symmetric Higgs boson.

Trilepton Higgs boson signal at hadron colliders  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Most Higgs boson searches pursued at hadron colliders require Yukawa interactions either in the production or the decay of a Higgs boson. We propose a trilepton Higgs boson search based only upon the gauge interactions of the Higgs boson. This strategy can be utilized successfully for the standard model (SM) Higgs boson as well as nonstandard Higgs bosons which break electroweak symmetry but have little to do with fermion mass generation. The trileptons come from Wh production followed by Wh?WWW(*)?3l decays. A SM Higgs trilepton signal would be difficult to detect at the Fermilab Tevatron collider: with 100 fb-1 of data, only a 3? signal above background can be achieved after cuts if 140 GeVHiggs boson mass in the range 140–185 (125–200) GeV. Prospects for a trilepton Higgs boson discovery are greatly improved for models with nonstandard Higgs boson sectors where a Higgs boson couples preferentially to vector bosons rather than to fermions.

Higgs Boson Searches with ATLAS  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Strategies of searches for the Higgs boson with the ATLAS detector at the LHC are discussed using data from 2010 and 2011. A summary of the sensitivity of ATLAS to discover a Standard Model (SM) Higgs boson is shown for the following decay channels: H ? ? ? , H ? W W ? l + ? l ? ? ¯ , H ? W W ? l ? q q ¯ , H ? Z Z ( ? ) ? l + l ? l + l ? , H ? Z Z ( ? ) ? l + l ? q q ¯ . Some prospects for the Minimal Supersymmetric extension of the Standard Model (MSSM) Higgs searches in the H ? ? + ? ? channel are also included with as well as search for a generic scalar at low mass in the vicinity of the ? resonance, decaying to a pair of muons. Limits are given at the 95% confidence level (CL) on the production cross section relative to the Standard Model and to the MSSM predictions.

Higgs boson signatures of MSSM electroweak baryogenesis  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Electroweak baryogenesis in the minimal supersymmetric standard model can account for the cosmological baryon asymmetry, but only within a restricted region of the parameter space. In particular, minimal supersymmetric standard model electroweak baryogenesis requires a mostly right-handed stop that is lighter than the top quark and a standard model-like light Higgs boson. In the present work we investigate the effects of the light stop on Higgs boson production and decay. Relative to the standard model Higgs boson, we find a large enhancement of the Higgs production rate through gluon fusion and a suppression of the Higgs branching fraction into photon pairs. These modifications in the properties of the Higgs boson are directly related to the effect of the light stop on the electroweak phase transition, and are large enough that they can potentially be tested at the Tevatron and the LHC.

Invisible Decays of Supersymmetric Higgs Bosons  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

We study the detection of the complete spectrum of Higgs bosons of the minimal supersymmetric standard model through their decays into chargino (?? i ± ) and neutralinos (?? i o ) for several parametric scenarios. In the minimal supersymmetric model there are two charginos and four neutralinos and the Higgs boson spectrum contains three neutral scalars two CP?even ( h 0 and H 0 with m H 0 >m h 0 ) and one CP?odd ( A 0 with m A 0 as a free parameter); as well as a charged pair (H ± ). An interesting signal comes from the decays of the Higgs bosons into invisible SUSY modes ( h 0 H 0 A 0 ??? 1 o ?? 1 o ) which could be detected at present and future high energy machines.

HIGLU and HDECAY: Programs for Higgs boson production at the LHC and Higgs boson decay widths  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The total cross section for neutral Higgs boson production via the gluon fusion mechanism including NLO (two-loop) QCD corrections can be calculated numerically with the program HIGLU within the Standard Model (SM) as well as its minimal supersymmetric extension (MSSM). The program HDECAY determines the decay widths and branching ratios of the Higgs bosons within the SM and the MSSM, including the dominant higher-order corrections. The program is able to calculate the branching ratios of the MSSM Higgs bosons into standard and supersymmetric particles.

Diffractive Higgs boson photoproduction in $?p$ process  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We explore an alternative process for the diffractive Higgs boson production in peripheral pp collisions arising from Double Pomeron Exchange in photon-proton interaction. We introduce the impact factor formalism in order to enable the gluon ladder exchange in the photon-proton subprocess, and to permit the central Higgs production. The event rate for the diffractive Higgs production in central rapidity is estimated to be about 0.6 pb at Tevatron and LHC energies. This result is higher than predictions from other approaches for diffractive Higgs production, showing that the alternative production process leads to an enhanced signal for the detection of the Higgs boson at hadron colliders. Our results are compared to those obtained from a similar approach proposed by the Durham group. In this way we may examine the future developments in its application to pp and AA collisions.

Standard model Higgs boson-inflaton and dark matter  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The standard model Higgs boson can serve as the inflaton field of slow roll inflationary models provided it exhibits a large nonminimal coupling with the gravitational scalar curvature. The Higgs boson self interactions and its couplings with a standard model singlet scalar serving as the source of dark matter are then subject to cosmological constraints. These bounds, which can be more stringent than those arising from vacuum stability and perturbative triviality alone, still allow values for the Higgs boson mass which should be accessible at the LHC. As the Higgs boson coupling to the dark matter strengthens, lower values of the Higgs boson mass consistent with the cosmological data are allowed.

Measuring Higgs boson couplings at the CERN LHC  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

For an intermediate mass Higgs boson with SM-like couplings the CERN LHC allows observation of a variety of decay channels in production by gluon fusion and weak boson fusion. Cross section ratios provide measurements of various ratios of Higgs couplings, with accuracies of order 15% for 100 fb-1 of data in each of the two LHC experiments. For Higgs boson masses above 120 GeV, minimal assumptions on the Higgs sector allow for an indirect measurement of the total Higgs boson width with an accuracy of 10 to 20 %, and of the H?WW partial width with an accuracy of about 10%.

Supersymmetric heavy Higgs bosons at the LHC  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The search for heavy Higgs bosons is an essential step in the exploration of the Higgs sector and in probing the supersymmetric parameter space. This paper discusses the constraints on the MA and tan?? parameters derived from the bounds on the different decay channels of the neutral H and A bosons accessible at the LHC, in the framework of the phenomenological minimal supersymmetric extension of the standard model. The implications from the present LHC results and the expected sensitivity of the 14 TeV data are discussed in terms of the coverage of the [MA-tan??] plane. New channels becoming important at 13 and 14 TeV for low values of tan?? are characterized in terms of their kinematics and the reconstruction strategies. The effect of QCD systematics, SUSY loop effects and decays into pairs of SUSY particles on these constraints are discussed in details.

The decay of the standard model Higgs boson into a single photon and a vector unparticle through a one-loop process is studied. For an intermediate-mass Higgs boson, this single photon plus unparticle mode can have a branching ratio comparable with the two-photon discovery mode. The emitted photon has a continuous energy spectrum encoding the nature of the recoil unparticle. It can be measured in precision studies of the Higgs boson after its discovery.

Stable Higgs Bosons as Cold Dark Matter  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

In a class of the gauge-Higgs unification models the 4D neutral Higgs boson, which is a part of the extra-dimensional component of the gauge fields, becomes absolutely stable as a consequence of the gauge invariance and dynamically generated new parity, serving as a promising candidate for cold dark matter (CDM). We show that the observed relic abundance of cold dark matter is obtained in the SO(5) x U(1) model in the warped space with the Higgs mass around 70 GeV. The Higgs-nucleon scattering cross section is found to be close to the current CDMS II and XENON10 bounds in the direct detection of dark matter.

Cosmological Constraints on the Higgs Boson Mass  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

For a robust interpretation of upcoming observations from PLANCK and Large Hadron Collider experiments it is imperative to understand how the inflationary dynamics of a non-minimally coupled Higgs scalar field with gravity may affect the determination of the inflationary observables. We make a full proper analysis of the Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe, Type Ia supernova distance-redshift relation, and the baryon acoustic oscillations data sets in a context of the non-minimally coupled Higgs inflation field with gravity. For the central value of the top quark pole mass mT = 171.3 GeV, the fit of the inflation model with a non-minimally coupled Higgs scalar field leads to a Higgs boson mass in the range 143.7 GeV ? mH ? 167 GeV (95% CL). We show that the inflation driven by a non-minimally coupled scalar field to the Einstein gravity leads to significant constraints on the scalar spectral index nS and the tensor-to-scalar ratio R when compared with a tensor with similar constraints to form the standard inflation with a minimally coupled scalar field. We also show that an accurate reconstruction of the Higgs potential in terms of inflationary observables requires an improved accuracy of other parameters of the standard model of particle physics such as the top quark mass and the effective QCD coupling constant.

Maximum Entropy Principle and the Higgs boson mass  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract A successful connection between Higgs boson decays and the Maximum Entropy Principle is presented. Based on the information theory inference approach we determine the Higgs boson mass as M H = 125.04 ± 0.25 GeV , a value fully compatible to the LHC measurement. This is straightforwardly obtained by taking the Higgs boson branching ratios as the target probability distributions of the inference, without any extra assumptions beyond the Standard Model. Yet, the principle can be a powerful tool in the construction of any model affecting the Higgs sector. We give, as an example, the case where the Higgs boson has an extra invisible decay channel within a Higgs portal model.

Charged Higgs Boson: Tracer of the Physics beyond Standard Model  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Charged Higgs boson can exist in many physics beyond the standard models (BSM) and it is the obvious BSM signal. We briefly describe why the 125GeV scalar discovered at the LHC must have (heavy) companion: the charged Higgs boson, in a new paradigm. We then focus on the charged Higgs phenomenology, especially on how to measure $\\tan\\beta$ precisely utilizing the top quark polarization information.

The Higgs boson mixes with an SU(2) septet representation  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We study a possibility of the Higgs boson, which consists of an SU(2) doublet and a septet. The vacuum expectation value of a septet with hypercharge Y=2 is known to preserve the electroweak rho parameter unity at the tree level. Therefore, the septet can give significant contribution to the electroweak symmetry breaking. Due to the mixing with the septet, the gauge coupling of the standard-model-like Higgs boson is larger than that in the standard model. We show the sizable VEV of the Higgs septet can be allowed under the constraint from the electroweak precision data. The signal strengths of the Higgs boson for the diphoton and a pair of weak gauge boson decay channels at the LHC are enhanced, while those for the fermonic decay modes are suppressed. The mass of additional neutral Higgs boson is also bounded by the current LHC data for the standard model Higgs boson. We discussed the phenomenology of the multiply charged Higgs bosons, which come from the septet.

Higgs boson production and decay: Dalitz sector

Abstract The processes H ? f ¯ f ? ( g ) , p p ? q ¯ + q ? H + ? ( g ) and p p ? q ( q ¯ ) + g ? H + q ( q ¯ ) pose severe challenges to the experimental analysis. They represent rare decays and production mechanisms of the Higgs boson at LHC. However, they are not Yukawa suppressed at next-to-leading order opening a window for the correct definition of pseudo-observables, e.g. a definition of ? ( H ? Z ? ) with universal inherent meaning, that are currently used in extracting information for the couplings of the newly discovered resonance at LHC. The impact of genuinely electroweak NLO corrections is discussed, as well as the comparison of ? ( p p ? g g X ? e + e ? ? ) to its zero-width approximation.

Prospects for Higgs boson scenarios beyond the Standard Model

The new particle recently discovered at the Large Hadron Collider has properties compatible with those expected for the Standard Model (SM) Higgs boson. However, this does not exclude the possibility that the discovered state is of non-standard origin, as part of an elementary Higgs sector in an extended model, or not at all a fundamental Higgs scalar. We review briefly the motivations for Higgs boson scenarios beyond the SM, discuss the phenomenology of several examples, and summarize the prospects and methods for studying interesting models with non-standard Higgs sectors using current and future data.

Search for an Invisibly-Decaying Higgs Boson at LEP  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

A search for a Higgs boson produced in e^+e^- collisions in association with a Z boson and decaying into invisible particles is performed. Data collected at LEP with the L3 detector at centre-of-mass energies from 189 GeV to 209 GeV are used, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 0.63/fb. Events with hadrons, electrons or muons with visible masses compatible with a Z boson and missing energy and momentum are selected. They are consistent with the Standard Model expectations. A lower limit of 112.3 GeV is set at 95% confidence level on the mass of the invisibly-decaying Higgs boson in the hypothesis that its production cross section equals that of the Standard Model Higgs boson. Relaxing this hypothesis, upper limits on the production cross section are derived.

Discovering the Higgs boson with low mass muon pairs  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Many models of electroweak symmetry breaking have an additional light pseudoscalar. If the Higgs boson can decay to a new pseudoscalar, LEP searches for the Higgs can be significantly altered and the Higgs can be as light as 86 GeV. Discovering the Higgs boson in these models is challenging when the pseudoscalar is lighter than 10 GeV because it decays dominantly into tau leptons. In this paper, we discuss discovering the Higgs in a subdominant decay mode where one of the pseudoscalars decays to a pair of muons. This search allows for potential discovery of a cascade-decaying Higgs boson with the complete Tevatron data set or early data at the LHC.

Self-interacting dark matter and the Higgs boson  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Self-interacting dark matter has been suggested in order to overcome the difficulties of the cold dark matter model on galactic scales. We argue that a scalar gauge singlet coupled to the Higgs boson, which could lead to an invisibly decaying Higgs boson, is an interesting candidate for this self-interacting dark matter particle. We also present estimates on the abundance of these particles today as well as the consequences to non-Newtonian forces.

E-Print Network (OSTI)

ATLAS and CMS have provided hints for the existence of a Higgs-like particle with mass of about 144 GeV with production cross section into standard decay channels which is about 50% that of the standard model Higgs boson. We show that this 50% suppression is exactly what the mirror matter model predicts when the two scalar mass eigenstates, each required to be maximal admixtures of a standard and mirror-Higgs boson, are separated in mass by more than their decay widths but less than the experimental resolution. We discuss prospects for the future confirmation of this interesting hint for non-standard Higgs physics.

Decay of Z into two light Higgs bosons  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

If the standard electroweak gauge model is extended to include two or more Higgs doublets, there may be a neutral Higgs boson h which is light (with a mass of say 10 GeV) but the hZZ coupling is suppressed so that it has so far escaped experimental detection. However, the effective hhZZ coupling is generally unsuppressed; hence, the decay of Z into two light Higgs bosons plus a fermion-antifermion pair may have an observable branching fraction, especially if h decays invisibly as, for example, in the recently proposed doublet Majoron model.

Hints for a nonstandard Higgs boson from the LHC  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

We reconsider Higgs boson invisible decays into Dark Matter in the light of recent Higgs searches at the LHC. Present hints in the Compact Muon Solenoid and ATLAS data favor a nonstandard Higgs boson with approximately 50% invisible branching ratio, and mass around 143 GeV. This situation can be realized within the simplest thermal scalar singlet Dark Matter model, predicting a Dark Matter mass around 50 GeV and direct detection cross section just below present bound. The present runs of the Xenon100 and LHC experiments can test this possibility.

The discovery and measurements of a Higgs boson  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The discovery of a Higgs-like boson with a mass of approximately 125 GeV by the ATLAS and CMS experiments at the Large Hadron Collider was announced at CERN on 4 July 2012. The data-set of 5 fb?1 of proton–proton collisions with collected during 2011 and 6 fb?1 with collected in 2012 up to the July discovery was supplemented by an additional 15 fb?1 of data with collected during the rest of 2012. The measurements of the properties of the new boson with the combined data-set have substantially strengthened the evidence that this new particle is indeed the Higgs boson predicted to exist as a consequence of the Brout–Englert–Higgs-mechanism that takes responsibility for generating masses of fundamental particles and for the electroweak symmetry breaking.

A comparison of the Higgs sectors of the CMSSM and NMSSM for a 126 GeV Higgs boson  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract The recent discovery of a Higgs-like boson at the LHC with a mass of 126 GeV has revived the interest in supersymmetric models, which predicted a Higgs boson mass below 130 GeV long before its discovery. We compare systematically the allowed parameter space in the constrained Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (CMSSM) and the Next-to-Minimal Supersymmetric Model (NMSSM) by minimizing the ? 2 function with respect to all known constraints from accelerators and cosmology using GUT scale parameters. For the CMSSM the Higgs boson mass at tree level is below the Z 0 boson mass and large radiative corrections are needed to obtain a Higgs boson mass of 126 GeV, which requires stop squark masses in the multi-TeV range. In contrast, for the NMSSM light stop quarks are allowed, since in the NMSSM at tree level the Higgs boson mass can be above the Z 0 boson mass from mixing with the additional singlet Higgs boson. Predictions for the scalar boson masses are given in both models with emphasis on the unique signatures of the NMSSM, where the heaviest scalar Higgs boson decays in the two lighter scalar Higgs bosons with a significant branching ratio, in which case one should observe double Higgs boson production at the LHC. Such a signal is strongly suppressed in the CMSSM. In addition, since the LSP is higgsino-like, Higgs boson decays into \\{LSPs\\} can be appreciable, thus leading to invisible Higgs decays.

Invisible decays of Higgs bosons in supersymmetric models  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

We point out that the dominant decay of the light scalar Higgs boson in a supersymmetric model may be into a pair of the lightest neutralinos (assumed to be the lightest supersymmetric particles), which would result in an invisible final state. Thus, in the search at the Stanford Linear Collider and the CERN collider LEP for a Higgs scalar produced in association with a real or virtual Z boson, it is important not to cut out events with significant missing energy recoiling against the Z.

QCD corrections to Higgs-boson decay and jet analysis  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

We have calculated, within the framework of an on-shell renormalization scheme, the first-order QCD corrections to the rate of Higgs-boson decay to heavy quarks. Our analytic results are in complete agreement with those of Braaten and Leveille. We have also considered the Sterman-Weinberg jet structure for two- and three-jet decays of the Higgs boson. Here our results differ somewhat from those of Braaten and Leveille so we discuss the origin of this discrepancy; we extend their work by keeping the quark mass in the jet formulation.

Invisible decays of low mass Higgs bosons in supersymmetric models  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The discovery of a 126 GeV Higgs like scalar at the LHC along with the non observation of the supersymmetric particles, has in turn lead to constraining various supersymmetric models through the Higgs data. We here consider the case of both MSSM, as well its extension containing an additional chiral singlet superfield, NMSSM. We concentrate on the case where we identify the second lightest Higgs boson as the 126 GeV state discovered at the CERN LHC and consider the invisible decays of the low mass Higgs bosons in both MSSM and NMSSM. We find that in case of the MSSM with universal boundary conditions at the GUT scale, it is not possible to have light neutralinos leading to the decay channel $H\\rightarrow \\tilde{\\chi}_1^0 \\tilde{\\chi}_1^0$. The invisible decay mode is allowed in case of certain $SO(10)$ and $E_6$ grand unified models with large representations and nonuniversal gaugino masses at the GUT scale. In case of the NMSSM, for the parameter space considered it is possible to have the invisible decay channel with universal gaugino masses at the GUT scale. We furthermore consider the most general case, with $M_1$ and $M_2$ as independent parameters for both MSSM and NMSSM. We isolate the regions in parameter space in both cases, where the second lightest Higgs boson has a mass of 126 GeV and then concentrate on the invisible decay of Higgs to lighter neutralinos. The other non-standard decay mode of the Higgs is also considered in detail. The invisible Higgs branching ratio being constrained by the LHC results, we find that in this case with the second lightest Higgs being the 126 GeV state, more data from the LHC is required to constrain the neutralino parameter space, compared to the case when the lightest Higgs boson is the 126 GeV state.

We present the results for the associated production of Higgs boson with vector boson computed at threshold N$^3$LO in QCD.

We have implemented it in the publicly available computer package vh@nnlo, thereby obtaining the numerical impact of threshold N$^3$LO contributions for the first time. We find that the inclusion of such corrections do reduce theoretical uncertainties resulting from the renormalization scale.

A Search for Neutral Supersymmetric Higgs Bosons at D0  

SciTech Connect

A search for Higgs bosons in multijet data from the D0 detector is reported in this thesis. The Higgs boson is the only remaining undiscovered particle in the Standard Model of particle physics, and plays an integral role in this model. It is known that this model is not a complete description of fundamental physics (it does not describe gravity, for example), and so searches for physics beyond the Standard Model are an important part of particle physics. One extension of the Standard Model, the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (MSSM), predicts the existence of five Higgs bosons, two of which can show an enhanced coupling to bottom quarks. For this reason, a search in the bbb (multijet) channel is a sensitive test of Higgs boson physics. The analysis described in this thesis was conducted over 6.6 fb{sup -1} of data. At the time of writing, the best limits on tan {beta} (a key parameter of the MSSM) in the multijet channel were set by D0. The new analysis described in this thesis included more data than the previous analysis in the channel, and made use of a new trigger and event-based analysis method. An improved Multivariate Analysis technique was used to separate signal and background events and produce a final discriminant for the limit setting process. These changes increased the expected sensitivity of this measurement by roughly 50% more than would be expected from the increase in the size of data sample alone.

What if Superluminal Neutrinos Exist but not Higgs Bosons?  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

As 2011 ended, two results stood out which seemed to go against twentieth century ideas. The first was the OPERA superluminal neutrino observation contradicting Special Relativity. The second was lack of a definitive appearance of the Higgs Boson. While both these hopefully will be decided by the end of 2012, we investigate a single mechanism that explains both these anomalies.

THE RESUMMED HIGGS BOSON TRANSVERSE MOMENTUM DISTRIBUTION AT THE LHC.  

SciTech Connect

We apply QCD resummation techniques to study the transverse momentum distribution of Higgs bosons produced via gluon-gluon fusion at the LHC. In particular we focus on the joint resummation formalism which resume both threshold and transverse momentum corrections simultaneously. A comparison of results obtained in the joint and the standard recoil resummation frameworks is presented.

Search for invisible decays of Higgs bosons in the vector boson fusion and associated ZH production modes  

SciTech Connect

A search for invisible decays of Higgs bosons is performed using the vector boson fusion and associated ZH production modes. In the ZH mode, the Z boson is required to decay to a pair of charged leptons or a b b-bar quark pair. The searches use the 8 TeV pp collision dataset collected by the CMS detector at the LHC, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of up to 19.7 inverse femtobarns. Certain channels include data from 7 TeV collisions corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 4.9 inverse femtobarns. The searches are sensitive to non-standard-model invisible decays of the recently observed Higgs boson, as well as additional Higgs bosons with similar production modes and large invisible branching fractions. In all channels, the observed data are consistent with the expected standard model backgrounds. Limits are set on the production cross section times invisible branching fraction, as a function of the Higgs boson mass, for the vector boson fusion and ZH production modes. By combining all channels, and assuming standard model Higgs boson cross sections and acceptances, the observed (expected) upper limit on the invisible branching fraction at m[H] = 125 GeV is found to be 0.58 (0.44) at 95% confidence level. We interpret this limit in terms of a Higgs-portal model of dark matter interactions.

Higgs boson physics and broken flavor symmetry -- LHC phenomenology  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The LHC implications are presented of a simplified model of broken flavor symmetry in which a new scalar (a flavon) emerges with mass in the TeV range. We summarize the influence of the model on Higgs boson physics, notably on the production cross section and decay branching fractions. Limits are obtained on the flavon $\\varphi$ from heavy Higgs boson searches at the LHC at 7 and 8 TeV. The branching fractions of the flavon are computed as a function of the flavon mass and the Higgs-flavon mixing angle. We explore possible discovery of the flavon at 14 TeV, particularly via the $\\varphi \\rightarrow Z^0Z^0$ decay channel in the $2\\ell2\\ell'$ final state, and through standard model Higgs boson pair production $\\varphi \\rightarrow hh$ in the $b\\bar{b}\\gamma\\gamma$ final state. The flavon mass range up to $500$ GeV could probed down to quite small values of the Higgs-flavon mixing angle with 100 fb$^{-1}$ of integrated luminosity at 14 TeV.

The LHC Higgs Boson Discovery: Implications for Finite Unified Theories  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Finite Unified Theories (FUTs) are N = 1 supersymmetric Grand Unified Theories (GUTs) which can be made finite to all-loop orders, based on the principle of reduction of couplings, and therefore are provided with a large predictive power. We confront the predictions of an SU(5) FUT with the top and bottom quark masses and other low-energy experimental constraints, resulting in a relatively heavy SUSY spectrum, naturally consistent with the non-observation of those particles at the LHC. The light Higgs boson mass is automatically predicted in the range compatible with the Higgs discovery at the LHC. Requiring a light Higgs-boson mass in the precise range of M_h = 125.6 +- 2.1 GeV favors the lower part of the allowed spectrum, resulting in clear predictions for the discovery potential at current and future pp, as well as future e+e- colliders.

Invisibly decaying Higgs boson in the Littlest Higgs model with T-parity  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We show that there are regions in the parameter space of the Littlest Higgs model with T-parity, allowed by electroweak precision data, where the Higgs boson can decay invisibly into a pair of heavy photons A_H with a substantial branching ratio. For a symmetry breaking scale f in the range 450-600 GeV, the BR(H -> A_H A_H) can be up to 95% for an intermediate mass Higgs, and from 20% down to a few percents for a Higgs boson of mass 200 GeV or above. The total decay width of the Higgs boson can thereby be enhanced by an order of magnitude compared to the Standard Model for Higgs masses around 130 GeV.

Search for Invisible Decays of a Higgs Boson Produced in Association with a Z Boson in ATLAS  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

A search for evidence of invisible-particle decay modes of a Higgs boson produced in association with a Z boson at the Large Hadron Collider is presented. No deviation from the Standard Model expectation is observed in 4.5 fb$^{-1}$ (20.3 fb$^{-1}$) of 7 (8) TeV pp collision data collected by the ATLAS experiment. Assuming the Standard Model rate for ZH production, an upper limit of 75%, at the 95% confidence level is set on the branching ratio to invisible-particle decay modes of the Higgs boson at a mass of 125.5 GeV. The limit on the branching ratio is also interpreted in terms of an upper limit on the allowed dark matter--nucleon scattering cross section within a Higgs-portal dark matter scenario. Limits are also set on an additional neutral Higgs boson, in the mass range 110invisible particles.

Higgs boson mass and electroweak observables in the MRSSM  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

R-symmetry is a fundamental symmetry which can solve the SUSY flavor problem and relax the search limits on SUSY masses. Here we provide a complete next-to-leading order computation and discussion of the lightest Higgs boson mass, the W boson mass and muon decay in the minimal R-symmetric SUSY model (MRSSM). This model contains non-MSSM particles including a Higgs triplet, Dirac gauginos and higgsinos, and leads to significant new tree-level and one-loop contributions to these observables. We show that the model can accommodate the measured values of the observables for interesting regions of parameter space with stop masses of order 1 TeV in spite of the absence of stop mixing. We characterize these regions and provide typical benchmark points, which are also checked against further experimental constraints. A detailed exposition of the model, its mass matrices and its Feynman rules relevant for computations in this paper is also provided.

Phenomenology of -factorization for inclusive Higgs boson production at LHC  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract We investigate the inclusive Higgs boson production in proton–proton collisions at high energies in the framework of k T -factorization QCD approach. The attention is focused on the dominant off-shell gluon–gluon fusion subprocess g ? g ? ? H ? ? ? , where the transverse momentum of incoming gluons are taken into account. The transverse momentum dependent (or unintegrated) gluon densities of the proton are determined using the CCFM evolution equation as well as the Kimber–Martin–Ryskin prescription. We study the theoretical uncertainties of our calculations and perform the comparison with the results of traditional pQCD evaluations. Our predictions agree well with the first experimental data taken by the ATLAS Collaboration at the LHC. We argue that further studies of the Higgs boson production are capable of constraining the unintegrated gluon densities of the proton.

Secondly, the results for the production of the Higgs boson in different channels through ggF and VBF processes will be presented. Finally, coupling fits are performed to the data and the Standard Model symmetries and mass dependence are tested and discussed. It is concluded that the observed boson is compatible with one Standard Model CP-even Higgs boson.

Higgs Boson Spectra in Supersymmetric Left-Right Models

We present a comprehensive analysis of the Higgs boson spectra in several versions of the supersymmetric left--right model based on the gauge symmetry $SU(3)_c \\times SU(2)_L \\times SU(2)_R \\times U(1)_{B-L}$. A variety of symmetry breaking sectors are studied, with a focus on the constraints placed on model parameters by the lightest neutral CP even Higgs boson mass $M_h$. The breaking of $SU(2)_R$ symmetry is achieved by Higgs fields transforming either as triplets or doublets, and the electroweak symmetry breaking is triggered by either bi--doublets or doublets. The Higgs potential is analyzed with or without a gauge singlet Higgs field present. Seesaw models of Type I and Type II, inverse seesaw models, universal seesaw models and an $E_6$ inspired alternate left--right model are included in our analysis. Several of these models lead to the tree--level relation $M_h \\leq \\sqrt{2}\\,m_W$ (rather than $M_h \\leq m_Z$ that arises in the MSSM), realized when the $SU(2)_R$ symmetry breaking scale is of order TeV...

The analysis is sensitive to Higgs boson production via gluon fusion, associated vector boson production, and vector boson fusion, followed by the Higgs boson decay to tau lepton pairs or to W boson pairs. The ratios of 95% C.L. upper limits on the cross section times branching ratio to those predicted by the standard model are obtained for orthogonal subsamples that are enriched in either H -> tau tau decays or H -> WW decays, and for the combination of these subsample limits.

Invisible Higgs in weak bosons associative production with heavy quarks at LHC: probing mass and width  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

New physics coupled to the Higgs boson may hide it in the standard decay channels to be investigated at LHC. We consider the models where new invisible dominant decay modes of the Higgs boson are responsible for this hiding. We propose to study at LHC the weak boson production associated with heavy quarks: our analysis revealed that boson pair invariant mass distribution is sensitive to both mass and width of the invisible Higgs boson, if it is not too far from the weak boson pair threshold. We present tree-level results for the most relevant cases of top quarks and of bottom quarks in Standard Model extensions with large $b$-quark Yukawa coupling. We argue that QCD corrections do not spoil these results allowing for unambiguous extraction of the Higgs boson mass and width from the analysis of large enough amount of data.

Search for a Higgs Boson Decaying into Two Photons at LEP  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

A Higgs particle produced in association with a Z boson and decaying into two photons is searched for in the data collected by the L3 experiment at LEP. All possible decay modes of the Z boson are investigated. No signal is observed in 447.5 pb^-1 of data recorded at centre-of-mass energies up to 209 GeV.

Higgs Gravitational Interaction, Weak Boson Scattering, and Higgs Inflation in Jordan and Einstein Frames  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We study gravitational interaction of Higgs boson through the unique dimension-4 operator $\\xi H^\\dag H R$, with $H$ the Higgs doublet and $R$ the Ricci scalar curvature. We analyze the effect of this dimensionless nonminimal coupling $\\xi$ on weak gauge boson scattering in both Jordan and Einstein frames. We explicitly establish the longitudinal-Goldstone boson equivalence theorem with nonzero $\\xi$ coupling in both frames, and analyze the unitarity constraints. We study the $\\xi$-induced weak boson scattering cross sections at O(1-30)TeV scales, and propose to probe the Higgs-gravity coupling via weak boson scattering experiments at the LHC(14TeV) and the next generation pp colliders (50-100TeV). We further extend our study to Higgs inflation, and quantitatively derive the perturbative unitarity bounds via coupled channel analysis, under large field background at the inflation scale. We analyze the unitarity constraints on the parameter space in both the conventional Higgs inflation and the improved models in light of the recent BICEP2 data.

Observing Higgs boson production through its decay into ?-rays: A messenger for dark matter candidates  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract In this Letter, we study the ?-ray signatures subsequent to the production of a Higgs boson in space by dark matter annihilations. We investigate the cases where the Higgs boson is produced at rest or slightly boosted and show that such configurations can produce characteristic bumps in the ?-ray data. These results are relevant in the case of the Standard Model-like Higgs boson provided that the dark matter mass is about 63 GeV, 109 GeV or 126 GeV, but can be generalized to any other Higgs boson masses. Here, we point out that it may be worth looking for a 63 GeV line since it could be the signature of the decay of a Standard Model-like Higgs boson produced in space, as in the case of a di-Higgs final state if m ? ? 126 GeV . We show that one can set generic constraints on the Higgs boson production rates using its decay properties. In particular, using the Fermi-LAT data from the galactic center, we find that the dark matter annihilation cross section into ?+ a Standard Model-like Higgs boson produced at rest or near rest cannot exceed ? ? v ? ? a few 10 ? 25 cm 3 / s or ? ? v ? ? a few 10 ? 27 cm 3 / s respectively, providing us with information on the Higgs coupling to the dark matter particle. We conclude that Higgs bosons can indeed be used as messengers to explore the dark matter mass range.

Higgs boson Mass in GMSB with Messenger–Matter mixing  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

A Higgs-like particle with mass of order 125 GeV has been observed by both ATLAS and CMS experiments. This Higgs mass causes sparticle masses in the several to multi-TeV range in the simple version of minimal GMSB models. We consider the effects of messenger–matter mixing on the lightest CP–even Higgs boson mass in gauge–mediated supersymmetry breaking models. We find with such mixings a 125 GeV Higgs boson can be naturally obtained even with a sub–TeV SUSY spectrum, and when the gravitino has a cosmologically preferred sub–keV mass. In addition, when these models are embedded into a grand unification framework with a U ( 1 ) flavor symmetry they explain the fermion mass hierarchy and generate naturally large neutrino mixing angles accompanied with small quark mixing angles. While SUSY mediated flavor changing processes are sufficiently suppressed in such an embedding, it can resolve the apparent discrepancy in the CP asymmetry parameters sin 2 ? and ? K , and it predicts an observable ? ? e ? decay rate.

Ultra-weak sector, Higgs boson mass, and the dilaton  

SciTech Connect

The Higgs boson mass may arise from a portal coupling to a singlet field $\\sigma$ which has a very large VEV $f \\gg m_\\text{Higgs}$. This requires a sector of "ultra-weak" couplings $\\zeta_i$, where $\\zeta_i \\lesssim m_\\text{Higgs}^2 / f^2$. Ultra-weak couplings are technically naturally small due to a custodial shift symmetry of $\\sigma$ in the $\\zeta_i \\rightarrow 0$ limit. The singlet field $\\sigma$ has properties similar to a pseudo-dilaton. We engineer explicit breaking of scale invariance in the ultra-weak sector via a Coleman-Weinberg potential, which requires hierarchies amongst the ultra-weak couplings.

We also discuss the couplings of this Higgs boson and its possible decay modes as functions of its unknown mass. We then review the structure of the Higgs sector in the minimal supersymmetric extension of the Standard Model (MSSM), noting the importance of loop corrections to the masses of its five physical Higgs bosons.

Rapidity gap signals in Higgs-boson production at the SSC  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

We examine the structure of the underlying event in neutral Higgs-boson production at the Superconducting Super Collider (SSC). Gaps, regions of rapidity containing no soft particle production, can provide a clean signature for W boson fusion to the heavy Higgs boson. We first examine the physical basis of gap production and estimate the survival probability of gaps in the minijet model. Then, using pythia, and herwig, we compare gap events to W pair production from top quark decay and qq¯ fusion. We find that, if experimental problems can be overcome, gaps should provide a small, but clean, signal for heavy Higgs-boson production at the SSC.

Diquark Higgs bosons at the CERN LHC  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Existence of color sextet diquark Higgs fields with TeV masses will indicate a fundamentally different direction for unification than conventional grand unified theories. One class of models where they appear naturally is the supersymmetric SU(2)L×SU(2)R×SU(4)c model embedding the seesaw mechanism for neutrino mass with seesaw scale around 1011??GeV. The diquark Higgs fields in this model couple only to up-type quarks. We discuss phenomenological constraints on these fields and show that they could be detected at LHC via their decay to either tt or single top+jet. We also find that existing Tevatron data gives a lower bound on its mass somewhere in the 400–500 GeV, for reasonable values of its coupling.

Invisible Higgs boson, continuous mass fields and unHiggs mechanism  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We explore the consequences of an electroweak symmetry breaking sector which exhibits approximately scale invariant dynamics -- i.e., nontrivial fixed point behavior, as in unparticle models. One can think of an unHiggs as a composite Higgs boson with a continuous mass distribution. We find it convenient to represent the unHiggs in terms of a Kallen-Lehmann spectral function, from which it is simple to verify the generation of gauge boson and fermion masses, and unitarization of WW scattering. We show that a spectral function with broad support, which corresponds to approximate fixed point behavior over an extended range of energy, can lead to an effectively invisible Higgs particle, whose decays at LEP or LHC could be obscured by background.

Probing the Higgs Boson via VBF with Single Jet Tagging at the LHC  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The signature produced by the Standard Model Higgs boson in the Vector Boson Fusion (VBF) mechanism is usually pinpointed by requiring two well separated hadronic jets, one of which (at least) of them tends to be in the forward direction. With the increase of instantaneous luminosity at the LHC, the isolation of the Higgs boson produced with the VBF mechanism is rendered more challenging. In this paper the feasibility of single jet tagging is explored in a high-luminosity scenario. It is demonstrated that the separation in rapidity between the tagging jet and the Higgs boson can be effectively used to isolate the VBF signal. This variable is robust from the experimental and QCD stand points. Single jet tagging allows us to probe the spin-CP quantum numbers of the Higgs boson.

Our numerical results show that, with reasonable parameter values, the values of the cross-sections for two processes can reach the level of several tens of fb and hundreds of fb, respectively.

Combined Analysis of the CP Properties of The Higgs Boson in Effective Higgs Lagrangian  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

CP violation effects of the Higgs stem from not only the CP mixing state but also the CP-violation couplings to electroweak bosons. The two CPV sources are studied based on an effective Higgs Lagrangian. The constraints from unitarity limits for $WW$ and $ZZ$ scatterings are investigated, and require $b_V$ to vanish while keeping the CPV tensor structure $c_V$ free. Five classes are classified in terms of effective parameters at low-energy. The allowed ranges are shown from fitting results to the signal strengths of the Higgs measured by ATLAS and CMS.

Higgs boson mass bounds in the presence of a heavy fourth quark family  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We present Higgs boson mass bounds in a lattice regularization allowing thus for non-perturbative investigations. In particular, we employ a lattice modified chiral invariant Higgs-Yukawa model using the overlap operator. We show results for the upper and lower Higgs boson mass bounds in the presence of a heavy mass-degenerate quark doublet with masses ranging up to 700 GeV. We perform infinite volume extrapolations in most cases, and examine several values of the lattice cutoff. Furthermore, we argue that the lower Higgs boson mass bound is stable with respect to the addition of higher dimensional operators to the scalar field potential. Our results have severe consequences for the phenomenology of a fourth generation of quarks if a light Higgs boson is discovered at the LHC.

WMAP-Compliant Benchmark Surfaces for MSSM Higgs Bosons

We explore `benchmark surfaces' suitable for studying the phenomenology of Higgs bosons in the minimal supersymmetric extension of the Standard Model (MSSM), which are chosen so that the supersymmetric relic density is generally compatible with the range of cold dark matter density preferred by WMAP and other observations. These benchmark surfaces are specified assuming that gaugino masses m_{1/2}, soft trilinear supersymmetry-breaking parameters A_0 and the soft supersymmetry-breaking contributions m_0 to the squark and slepton masses are universal, but not those associated with the Higgs multiplets (the NUHM framework). The benchmark surfaces may be presented as M_A-tan_beta planes with fixed or systematically varying values of the other NUHM parameters, such as m_0, m_{1/2}, A_0 and the Higgs mixing parameter mu. We discuss the prospects for probing experimentally these benchmark surfaces at the Tevatron collider, the LHC, the ILC, in B physics and in direct dark-matter detection experiments.

Higgs boson decay into b-quarks at NNLO accuracy  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We compute the fully differential decay rate of the Standard Model Higgs boson into b-quarks at next-to-next-to-leading order (NNLO) accuracy in alpha_S. We employ a general subtraction scheme developed for the calculation of higher order perturbative corrections to QCD jet cross sections, which is based on the universal infrared factorization properties of QCD squared matrix elements. We show that the subtractions render the various contributions to the NNLO correction finite. In particular, we demonstrate analytically that the sum of integrated subtraction terms correctly reproduces the infrared poles of the two-loop double virtual contribution to this process. We present illustrative differential distributions obtained by implementing the method in a parton level Monte Carlo program. The basic ingredients of our subtraction scheme, used here for the first time to compute a physical observable, are universal and can be employed for the computation of more involved processes.

Determining the masses of invisible particles: Application to Higgs boson invisible decay  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

To know the total width of the recently discovered Higgs boson particle, it is important to measure the invisible decay width of the Higgs boson. However, the signal for this measurement at the LHC, i.e., a charged lepton pair and missing energy in the final state, cannot be definitely understood as the product of the intermediate produced $Z$ and $H$ bosons due to the possible interaction between dark matter and a $Z$ boson or quarks, which can be described by representative effective operators. First, we consider the relic abundance, the LUX direct detection experiment and the result of searching for Higgs boson invisible decay at the LEP and LHC to find the allowed parameter region for the effective operators. Then we investigate the transverse momentum distribution of the missing energy and propose two observables that can be used to distinguish the different underlying processes. Moreover, with these two observables, we may be able to determine the masses of invisible particles.

The analysis is based on the data collected by the CMS experiment at the LHC in 2011 and 2012, corresponding to integrated luminosities of 5.1   fb ? 1 at a center-of-mass energy s = 7   TeV and 19.7   fb ? 1 at s = 8   TeV . A simultaneous maximum likelihood fit to the measured kinematic distributions near the resonance peak and above the Z-boson pair production threshold leads to an upper limit on the Higgs boson width of ? H < 22   MeV at a 95% confidence level, which is 5.4 times the expected value in the standard model at the measured mass of m H = 125.6   GeV .

Search for the associated production of the Higgs boson with a top-quark pair  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

A search for the standard model Higgs boson produced in association with a top-quark pair (t tbar H) is presented, using data samples corresponding to integrated luminosities of up to 5.1 inverse femtobarns and 19.7 inverse femtobarns collected in pp collisions at center-of-mass energies of 7 TeV and 8 TeV respectively. The search is based on the following signatures of the Higgs boson decay: H to hadrons, H to photons, and H to leptons. The results are characterized by an observed t tbar H signal strength relative to the standard model cross section, mu = sigma/sigma[SM], under the assumption that the Higgs boson decays as expected in the standard model. The best fit value is mu = 2.8 +/- 1.0 for a Higgs boson mass of 125.6 GeV.

Associated production of a top quark and a charged Higgs boson  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

We compute the inclusive and differential cross sections for the associated production of a top quark along with a charged Higgs boson at hadron colliders to next-to-leading order (NLO) in perturbative quantum chromodynamics (QCD) and in supersymmetric QCD. For small Higgs boson masses we include top-quark pair production diagrams with subsequent top-quark decay into a bottom quark and a charged Higgs boson. We compare the NLO differential cross sections obtained in the bottom parton picture with those for the gluon-initiated production process and find good agreement. The effects of supersymmetric loop contributions are explored. Only the corrections to the Yukawa coupling are sizable in the potential discovery region at the CERN Large Hadron Collider (LHC). All expressions and numerical results are fully differential, permitting selections on the momenta of both the top quark and the charged Higgs boson.

Search for a non-standard-model Higgs boson decaying to a pair of new light bosons in four-muon final states  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Results are reported from a search for non-standard-model Higgs boson decays to pairs of new light bosons, each of which decays into the ? + ? ? final state. The new bosons may be produced either promptly or via a decay chain. The data set corresponds to an integrated luminosity of 5.3 fb ? 1 of proton–proton collisions at s = 7 TeV , recorded by the CMS experiment at the LHC in 2011. Such Higgs boson decays are predicted in several scenarios of new physics, including supersymmetric models with extended Higgs sectors or hidden valleys. Thus, the results of the search are relevant for establishing whether the new particle observed in Higgs boson searches at the LHC has the properties expected for a standard model Higgs boson. No excess of events is observed with respect to the yields expected from standard model processes. A model-independent upper limit of 0.86 ± 0.06 fb on the product of the cross section times branching fraction times acceptance is obtained. The results, which are applicable to a broad spectrum of new physics scenarios, are compared with the predictions of two benchmark models as functions of a Higgs boson mass larger than 86 GeV / c 2 and of a new light boson mass within the range 0.25–3.55 GeV / c 2 .

Combined results of searches for the standard model Higgs boson in pp collisions at  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Combined results are reported from searches for the standard model Higgs boson in proton–proton collisions at s = 7 TeV in five Higgs boson decay modes: ??, bb, ??, WW, and ZZ. The explored Higgs boson mass range is 110–600 GeV. The analysed data correspond to an integrated luminosity of 4.6–4.8 fb?1. The expected excluded mass range in the absence of the standard model Higgs boson is 118–543 GeV at 95% CL. The observed results exclude the standard model Higgs boson in the mass range 127–600 GeV at 95% CL, and in the mass range 129–525 GeV at 99% CL. An excess of events above the expected standard model background is observed at the low end of the explored mass range making the observed limits weaker than expected in the absence of a signal. The largest excess, with a local significance of 3.1?, is observed for a Higgs boson mass hypothesis of 124 GeV. The global significance of observing an excess with a local significance ? 3.1 ? anywhere in the search range 110–600 (110–145) GeV is estimated to be 1.5 ? ( 2.1 ? ) . More data are required to ascertain the origin of the observed excess.

Invisible Higgs boson decay in the littlest Higgs model with T-parity  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We study the invisible decay of the Higgs boson into a pair of stable, heavy photons, H -> A_H A_H, in the littlest Higgs model with T-parity. For a symmetry breaking scale of f = 450 GeV, the branching ratio H -> A_H A_H can be as high as 93% for Higgs masses below 150 GeV. For f = 500 GeV, the invisible branching ratio is about 75% in the Higgs mass range 135 - 150 GeV and 10 (5.5)% for m_H = 200 (600) GeV. It drops to a few percent for f larger than 600 GeV. We have found regions in parameter space, allowed by the electroweak precision data, with such low values of f for 115 GeV < m_H < 650 GeV.

Neutral Higgs Boson Pair Production in Standard Model with the Fourth Generation Quarks at LHC  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

We investigated the neutral Higgs boson pair production at the CERN Large Hadron Collider (LHC) in the SM with four families. We found that the gluon-gluon fusion mode is the most dominant one in producing neutral Higgs boson pair at the LHC, and it can be used to probe the trilinear Higgs coupling. If the heavy quarks of the fourth generation really exist within the SM, they can manifest their effect on the cross section of the Higgs pair production process at the LHC. Our numerical results show that there will be neutral Higgs boson pair production events per year if the next generation heavy quarks really exist, while there will be only events produced per year if there are only three families in the SM.

Search for CP Violating neutral Higgs bosons in the MSSM at LEP  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The LEP collaborations ALEPH, DELPHI, L3 and OPAL have searched for the neutral Higgs bosons which are predicted within the framework of the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (MSSM). The data of the four collaborations are statistically combined and show no signicant excess of events which would indicate the production of Higgs bosons. The search results are thus used to set upper bounds on the cross sections of various Higgs-like event topologies and limits on MSSM benchmark models, including CP-conserving and CP-violating scenarios. Here, the limits on the model parameters of the CP-violating benchmark scenario CPX and derivates of this scenario are shown.

Charged Higgs boson in the $W^\\pm$ Higgs channel at the Large Hadron Collider  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

In light of the recent discovery of a neutral Higgs boson, $H_{\\rm obs}$, with a mass near 125 GeV, we reassess the LHC discovery potential of a charged Higgs boson, $H^\\pm$, in the $W^\\pm H_{\\rm obs}$ decay channel. This decay channel can be particularly important for a $H^\\pm$ heavier than the top quark, when it is produced through the $pp \\rightarrow tH^\\pm$ process. The knowledge of the mass of $H_{\\rm obs}$ provides an additional handle in the kinematic selection when reconstructing a Breit-Wigner resonance in the $H_{\\rm obs} \\rightarrow b\\bar{b}$ decay channel. We consider some extensions of the Standard Model Higgs sector, with and without supersymmetry, and perform a dedicated signal-to-background analysis to test the scope of this channel for the LHC running at design energy (14 TeV), for 300/fb (standard) and 3000/fb (high) integrated luminosities. We find that, while this channel does not show much promise for a supersymmetric $H^\\pm$ state, significant portions of the parameter spaces of several ...

Search for Invisibly Decaying Higgs Bosons with Large Decay Width Using the OPAL Detector at LEP  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

This paper describes a topological search for an invisibly decaying Higgs boson,H, produced via the Bjorken process (e+e- -> HZ). The analysis is based on data recorded using the OPAL detector at LEP at centre-of-mass energies from 183 to 209 GeV corresponding to a total integrated luminosity of 629pb-1. In the analysis only hadronic decays of the Z boson are considered. A scan over Higgs boson masses from 1 to 120 GeV and decay widths from 1 to 3000 GeV revealed no indication for a signal in the data. From a likelihood ratio of expected signal and Standard Model background we determine upper limits on cross-section times branching ratio to an invisible final state. For moderate Higgs boson decay widths, these range from about 0.07pb Mh = 60GeV) to 0.57pb (Mh = 114GeV). For decay widths above 200GeV the upper limits are of the order of 0.15pb. The results can be interpreted in general scenarios predicting a large invisible decay width of the Higgs boson. As an example we interpret the results in the so-called stealthy Higgs scenario. The limits from this analysis exclude a large part of the parameter range of this scenario experimentally accessible at LEP2.

How well do we need to measure the Higgs boson mass and self-coupling?  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Much of the discussion regarding future measurements of the Higgs boson mass and self-coupling is focused on how well various collider options can do. In this article we ask a physics-based question of how well do we need colliders to measure these quantities to have an impact on discovery of new physics or an impact in how we understand the role of the Higgs boson in nature. We address the question within the framework of the Standard Model and various beyond the Standard Model scenarios, including supersymmetry and theories of composite Higgs bosons. We conclude that the LHC’s stated ability to measure the Higgs boson to better than 150 MeV will be as good as we will ever need to know the Higgs boson mass in the foreseeable future. On the other hand, we estimate that the self-coupling will likely need to be measured to better than 20% to see a deviation from the Standard Model expectation. This is a challenging target for future collider and upgrade scenarios.

The search employs data collected with the CDF II detector that correspond to an integrated luminosity of approximately 1.9 fb{sup -1}. We select events consistent with a signature of a single charged lepton (e{sup {+-}}/{mu}{sup {+-}}), missing transverse energy, and two jets. Jets corresponding to bottom quarks are identified with a secondary vertex tagging method, a jet probability tagging method, and a neural network filter. We use kinematic information in an artificial neural network to improve discrimination between signal and background compared to previous analyses. The observed number of events and the neural network output distributions are consistent with the standard model background expectations, and we set 95% confidence level upper limits on the production cross section times branching fraction ranging from 1.2 to 1.1 pb or 7.5 to 102 times the standard model expectation for Higgs boson masses from 110 to 150 GeV/c{sup 2}, respectively.

Search for the standard model Higgs boson produced in association with W and Z bosons in pp collisions at sqrt(s) = 7 TeV  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

A search for the Higgs boson produced in association with a W or Z boson in proton-proton collisions at a center-of-mass energy of 7 TeV is performed with the CMS detector at the LHC using the full 2011 data sample, from an integrated luminosity of 5 inverse femtobarns. Higgs boson decay modes to tau tau and WW are explored by selecting events with three or four leptons in the final state. No excess above background expectations is observed, resulting in exclusion limits on the product of Higgs associated production cross section and decay branching fraction for Higgs boson masses between 110 and 200 GeV in these channels. Combining these results with other CMS associated production searches using the same dataset in the H to gamma gamma and H to b b-bar decay modes, the cross section for associated Higgs boson production 3.3 times the standard model expectation or larger is ruled out at the 95% confidence level for a Higgs boson mass of 125 GeV.

On leptonic decay of a heavy quarkonium with a Higgs-boson emission  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

A leptonic $(\\bar l l)$ decay of a heavy quark-antiquark bound state $T(\\bar QQ)$ with a Higgs-boson $H$ emission is investigated. The applying of the well-known low-energy theorem to meson-Higgs coupling allows one to estimate the probability of the decay $T(\\bar QQ)\\to \\bar ll H$. The only a simple version of the Standard Model extension containing two-Higgs doublet is considered.

Constraints on models of the Higgs boson with exotic spin and parity using the full CDF data set  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

A search for particles with the same mass and couplings as those of the standard model Higgs boson but different spin and parity quantum numbers is presented. We test two specific non-standard Higgs boson hypotheses: a pseudoscalar Higgs boson with spin-parity $J^P$ = $0^-$ and a graviton-like Higgs boson with $J^P$ = $2^+$, assuming for both a mass of 125 GeV/$c^2$. We search for these exotic states produced in association with a vector boson and decaying into a bottom-antibottom quark pair. The vector boson is reconstructed through its decay into an electron or muon pair, or an electron or muon and a neutrino, or it is inferred from an imbalance in total transverse momentum. We use expected kinematic differences between events containing exotic Higgs bosons and those containing standard model Higgs bosons. The data were collected by the CDF experiment at the Tevatron proton-antiproton collider, operating at a center-of-mass energy of $\\sqrt{s}=1.96$ TeV, and correspond to an integrated luminosity of 9.45 fb$^{-1}$. We observe no significant deviations from the predictions of the standard model with a Higgs boson of mass 125 GeV/$c^2$, and set bounds on the possible rate of production of each exotic state.

Left-Right Symmetry and the Charged Higgs Bosons at the LHC  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The charged Higgs boson sector of the Minimal Manifest Left-Right Symmetric model (MLRSM) is investigated in the context of LHC discovery search for new physics beyond Standard Model. We discuss and summarise the main processes within MLRSM where heavy charged Higgs bosons can be produced at the LHC. We explore the scenarios where the amplified signals due to relatively light charged scalars dominate against heavy neutral $Z_2$ and charged gauge $W_2$ as well as heavy neutral Higgs bosons signals which are dumped due to large vacuum expectation value $v_R$ of the right-handed scalar triplet. In particular, production processes with one and two doubly charged Higgs bosons are considered. We further incorporate the decays of those scalars leading to multi lepton signals at the LHC. Branching ratios for heavy neutrino $N_R$, $W_2$ and $Z_2$ decay into charged Higgs bosons are calculated. These effects are substantial enough and cannot be neglected. The tri- and four-lepton final states for different benchmark points are analysed. Kinematic cuts are chosen in order to strength the leptonic signals and decrease the Standard Model (SM) background. The results are presented using di-lepton invariant mass and lepton-lepton separation distributions for the same sign (SSDL) and opposite sign (OSDL) di-leptons as well as the charge asymmetry are also discussed. We have found that for considered MLRSM processes tri-lepton and four-lepton signals are most important for their detection when compared to the SM background. Both of the signals can be detected at 14 TeV collisions at the LHC with integrated luminosity at the level of $300 fb^{-1}$ with doubly charged Higgs bosons up to approximately 600 GeV. Finally, possible extra contribution of the charged MLRSM scalar particles to the measured Higgs to di-photon ($H_0^0 \\to \\gamma \\gamma$) decay is computed and pointed out.

Triple vector boson production through Higgs-Strahlung with NLO multijet merging  

SciTech Connect

Triple gauge boson hadroproduction, in particular the production of three W-bosons at the LHC, is considered at next-to leading order accuracy in QCD. The NLO matrix elements are combined with parton showers. Multijet merging is invoked such that NLO matrix elements with one additional jet are also included. The studies here incorporate both the signal and all relevant backgrounds for V H production with the subsequent decay of the Higgs boson into W– or ?–- pairs. They have been performed using SHERPA+OPENLOOPS in combination with COLLIER.

Observation of an excess of events in the Higgs boson search in ATLAS

Abstract A search for the Standard Model Higgs boson with the ATLAS experiment at the LHC is presented. The pp collisions datasets correspond to an integrated luminosity of up to 4.9 fb ? 1 collected at s = 7 TeV in 2011, and up to 5.9 fb ? 1 collected at s = 8 TeV in 2012. Searches for H ? ? ? , H ?

The Standard Model Higgs boson has been excluded at 95% confidence level for masses in the range of 110 to 122.6 GeV and 129.7 to 558 GeV. An excess of events has been observed for a Higgs boson mass hypothesis near 126.5 GeV with a local significance of 5.0?.

The Interplay Between Collider Searches For Supersymmetric Higgs Bosons and Direct Dark Matter Experiments  

SciTech Connect

In this article, we explore the interplay between searches for supersymmetric particles and Higgs bosons at hadron colliders (the Tevatron and the LHC) and direct dark matter searches (such as CDMS, ZEPLIN, XENON, EDELWEISS, CRESST, WARP and others). We focus on collider searches for heavy MSSM Higgs bosons (A, H, H{sup {+-}}) and how the prospects for these searches are impacted by direct dark matter limits and vice versa. We find that the prospects of these two experimental programs are highly interrelated. A positive detection of A, H or H{sup {+-}} at the Tevatron would dramatically enhance the prospects for a near future direct discovery of neutralino dark matter. Similarly, a positive direct detection of neutralino dark matter would enhance the prospects of discovering heavy MSSM Higgs bosons at the Tevatron or the LHC. Combining the information obtained from both types of experimental searches will enable us to learn more about the nature of supersymmetry.

Search for a Higgs boson decaying into a Z and a photon in pp collisions at  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract A search for a Higgs boson decaying into a Z boson and a photon is described. The analysis is performed using proton–proton collision datasets recorded by the CMS detector at the LHC. Events were collected at center-of-mass energies of 7 TeV and 8 TeV, corresponding to integrated luminosities of 5.0   fb ? 1 and 19.6   fb ? 1 , respectively. The selected events are required to have opposite-sign electron or muon pairs. No excess above standard model predictions has been found in the 120–160 GeV mass range and the first limits on the Higgs boson production cross section times the H ? Z ? branching fraction at the LHC have been derived. The observed at 95% confidence level limits are between about 4 and 25 times the standard model cross section times the branching fraction. For a standard model Higgs boson mass of 125 GeV the expected limit at the 95% confidence level is 10 and the observed limit is 9.5. Models predicting the Higgs boson production cross section times the H ? Z ? branching fraction to be larger than one order of magnitude of the standard model prediction are excluded for most of the 125–157 GeV mass range.

Charged Higgs and Neutral Higgs pair production of weak gauge bosons fusion process in e+ e- collision  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

In this paper, we study the pair production and their decays of the Higges in the neutrinophilic Higgs two doublet model. The pair production occurs through W and Z gauge bosons fusion process. In the neutrinophilic model, the vacuum expectation value (VEV) of the second Higgs doublet is small and is proportional to the neutrino mass. The smallness of VEV is associated with the approximate global U(1) symmetry which is slightly broken. Therefore, there is a suppression factor for the U(1) charge breaking process. The second Higgs doublet has U(1) charge and its single production from the gauge boson fusion violates the U(1) charge conservation and is suppressed strongly to occur. In contrast to the single production, the pair production of the Higgses conserves U(1) charge and the approximate symmetry does not forbid it. To search for the pair productions in collider experiment,we study the production cross section of a pair of the charged Higgs and neutral Higgs bosons in e+ e- collision with center of energy from 600 (GeV) to 2000 (GeV). The total cross section varies from 10^{-4}(fb) to 10^{-3}(fb) for degenerate (200 GeV) charged and neutral Higgses mass case. The background process to the signal is gauge bosons pair W + Z production and their decays. We show the signal over background ratio is about 2% ~ 3% by combining the cross section ratio with ratios of branching fractions.

Enhancement of "CP-odd" Higgs Boson Production in the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model with Explicit CP Violation  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We calculate the production cross section of the ``CP-odd'' Higgs boson via gluon fusion in the minimal supersymmetric standard model with explicit CP violation in the stop sector. We show that there is a parameter region in which the cross section is enhanced by a factor of about 1000, as compared to the case without CP violation in the stop sector. In the parameter region where the ``CP-odd'' Higgs boson can decay into a stop pair, the stop pair events will be the important signature of the enhanced ``CP-odd'' Higgs boson. In the case where the ``CP-odd'' Higgs boson cannot decay into any superparticles, the gamma gamma and tau tau decay channels could become important for discovering the ``CP-odd'' Higgs boson. We also discuss the constraints from electric dipole moments of electron, neutron and mercury on the viable parameter space mentioned above.

Probing minimal supersymmetry at the LHC with the Higgs boson masses

The ATLAS and CMS collaborations report indications of a Higgs boson at Mh ~ 125 GeV. In addition, CMS data show a tenuous bump in the ZZ channel, at about 320 GeV. We make the bold assumption that it might be the indication of a secondary line corresponding to the heaviest scalar Higgs boson of minimal supersymmetry, H, and discuss the viability of this hypothesis. We discuss also the case of a heavier H. The relevance of the decay channel is underlined.

Abstract We present the cross-section for the threshold production of the Higgs boson at hadron-colliders at next-to-next-to-next-to-leading order (N3LO) in perturbative QCD. We present an analytic expression for the partonic cross-section at threshold and the impact of these corrections on the numerical estimates for the hadronic cross-section at the LHC. With this result we achieve a major milestone towards a complete evaluation of the cross-section at N3LO which will reduce the theoretical uncertainty in the determination of the strengths of the Higgs boson interactions.

Search for the Higgs boson in the ZH to llbb channel at CDF Run II  

SciTech Connect

The Standard Model of particle physics is in excellent agreement with the observed phenomena of particle physics. Within the Standard Model, the weak and electromagnetic forces are successfully combined. However, this combination is only valid if the masses of the force carriers of the weak force, the Z and W bosons, are massless. In fact, these two particles are the second and third most massive observed elementary particles. Within the minimal Standard Model, the Higgs mechanism is introduced to reconcile this contradiction. Conclusive proof of this theory would come with the discovery of the Higgs boson.

At the Fermilab Tevatron, final states with three tagged b-jets could play an important role in searches for a Higgs boson with mass in the range 100-300 GeV. These signals arise from gb fusion and we demonstrate their observability in the limit of a large b-quark Yukawa coupling. Rather promising discovery limits on such a coupling are obtained and consequent effects on the parameter space of the Higgs-boson sector in the MSSM are discussed.

NNLO QCD corrections to Higgs pair production via vector boson fusion at hadron colliders  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The measurement of the Higgs pair production via vector boson fusion can be used to test the trilinear Higgs self-coupling and the $VVHH$ $(V=Z,W)$ quartic gauge interactions. In this paper we present the calculations of the next-to-next-to-leading-order QCD corrections to the SM Higgs boson pair production via vector boson fusion at hadron colliders with the center-of-mass energy of $14$, $33$, and $100 {\\rm TeV}$ by using the structure function approach, and study the residual uncertainties from the factorization/renormalization scale, parton distribution functions and $\\alpha_s$ on the total cross section. We also provide the distributions of transverse momenta, rapidities, invariant mass and azimuthal angle separations of final Higgs bosons. We observe a considerable quantitative reduction in the scale uncertainty due to the next-to-next-to-leading-order QCD corrections, and find that the total cross section is sensitive to the trilinear Higgs self-coupling.

Next generation Higgs bosons: Theory, constraints, and discovery prospects at the Large Hadron Collider  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Particle physics model building within the context of string theory suggests that further copies of the Higgs boson sector may be expected. Concerns regarding tree-level flavor-changing neutral currents are easiest to allay if little or no couplings of next generation Higgs bosons to standard model fermions are allowed. We detail the resulting general Higgs potential and mass spectroscopy in both a standard model extension and a supersymmetric extension. We present the important experimental constraints from meson-meson mixing, loop-induced b?s? decays, and LEP2 direct production limits. We investigate the energy range of the valid perturbation theory of these ideas. In the supersymmetric context we present a class of examples that marginally aids the fine-tuning problem for parameter space where the lightest Higgs boson mass is greater than the standard model limit of 114 GeV. Finally, we study collider physics signatures generic to next generation Higgs bosons, with special emphasis on Ah?hhZ?4b+2l signal events, and describe the capability of discovery at the Large Hadron Collider.

The Nambu sum rule and the relation between the masses of composite Higgs bosons  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We review the known results on the bosonic spectrum in various NJL models both in the condensed matter physics and in relativistic quantum field theory including $^3$He-B, $^3$He-A, the thin films of superfluid He-3, and QCD (Hadronic phase and the Color Flavor Locking phase). Next, we calculate bosonic spectrum in the relativistic model of top quark condensation suggested in \\cite{Miransky}. In all considered cases the sum rule appears that relates the masses (energy gaps) $M_{boson}$ of the bosonic excitations in each channel with the mass (energy gap) of the condensed fermion $M_f$ as $\\sum M_{boson}^2 = 4 M_f^2$. Previously this relation was established by Nambu in \\cite{Nambu} for $^3$He-B and for the s - wave superconductor. We generalize this relation to the wider class of models and call it the Nambu sum rule. We discuss the possibility to apply this sum rule to various models of top quark condensation. In some cases this rule allows to calculate the masses of extra Higgs bosons that are the Nambu partners of the 125 GeV Higgs.

The Higgs boson in the Standard Model—From LEP to LHC: Expectations, Searches, and Discovery of a Candidate  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The quest for the Higgs boson of the Standard Model, which was a cornerstone in the physics programme at particle colliders operating at the energy frontier for several decades, is the subject of this review. After reviewing the formulation of electroweak symmetry breaking via the Higgs mechanism within the Standard Model, the phenomenology of the Higgs boson at colliders and the theoretical and phenomenological constraints on the Standard Model Higgs sector are discussed. General remarks on experimental searches and the methodology of statistical interpretation are followed by a description of the phenomenology of Higgs-boson production and the corresponding precise predictions. The strategies of the experimental searches and their findings are discussed for the Large Electron Positron Collider (LEP) at CERN, the proton–antiproton collider Tevatron at Fermilab, and the proton–proton Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN. The article concludes with the description of the observation of a Higgs-like boson at the LHC.

Using the Higgs boson to probe the littlest Higgs model with T parity through ZHWH production at the LHC  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

In the littlest Higgs model with T-parity, the production cross section of the T-odd heavy gauge boson pair ZHWH is sizable at the LHC. In addition, both the ZH and WH bosons have almost exclusively one decay channel into HAH and WAH, respectively, where the dark matter candidate AH yields a large missing transverse energy signal. Upon the discovery of the Higgs boson at 125 GeV, we study the discovery sensitivity of the final state pp??bb¯+E?T to probe the model at the LHC. We find that the standard model backgrounds are manageable by applying suitable kinematic cuts. The LHC running at s=14??TeV with a 100??fb-1 total luminosity is sensitive to the model with the signal significance above 5 if the symmetry breaking scale f is below about 850 GeV.

Evidence for a Higgs boson in tau decays with the CMS detector  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

In this thesis, I describe the search for a Higgs boson through its decay to a pair of tan leptons with the tau-pair subsequently decaying to ail electron, a muon, and neutrinos. The search is performed using data collected from proton-proton collisions by the Compact Muon Solenoid experiment at the Large Hadron Collider, corresponding to 5.0 fb-1 of integrated luminosity recorded at a center-of-mass energy of 7 TeV and 19.7 fb-1 at 8 TeV. The expected significance for a Standard Model Higgs boson signal with a mass of 125 GeV is at the level of 1.2 standard deviations for the electron muon tau-pair decay mode. A mild excess of events is seen above the SM background expectation in this decay mode, consistent with a SM Higgs boson of mass 125 GeV. In combination with results using other tau-pair decay modes, an excess of events above the background expectation is seen at the level of 3.4 standard deviations. This constitutes the first evidence for a Higgs boson to decay to leptons. This thesis also describes a...

Unusual charged Higgs boson signals at CERN LEP 2  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

We have made a detailed study of the signals expected at CERN LEP 2 from charged scalar bosons whose dominant decay channels are into four fermions. The event rates as well as kinematics of the final states are discussed when such scalars are either pair produced or are generated through a tree-level interaction involving a charged scalar, the W, and the Z. The backgrounds in both cases are discussed. We also suggest the possibility of reconstructing the mass of such a scalar at LEP 2.

Constraining a fourth generation of quarks: non-perturbative Higgs boson mass bounds  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We present a non-perturbative determination of the upper and lower Higgs boson mass bounds with a heavy fourth generation of quarks from numerical lattice computations in a chirally symmetric Higgs-Yukawa model. We find that the upper bound only moderately rises with the quark mass while the lower bound increases significantly, providing additional constraints on the existence of a straight-forward fourth quark generation. We examine the stability of the lower bound under the addition of a higher dimensional operator to the scalar field potential using perturbation theory, demonstrating that it is not significantly altered for small values of the coupling of this operator. For a Higgs boson mass of $\\sim125\\mathrm{GeV}$ we find that the maximum value of the fourth generation quark mass is $\\sim300\\mathrm{GeV}$, which is already in conflict with bounds from direct searches.

CP-odd component of the lightest neutral Higgs boson in the MSSM  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The Higgs sector of the Minimal Supersymmetric Extension of the Standard Model may be described with a two Higgs doublet model with properties that depend on the soft supersymmetry breaking parameters. For instance, flavor independent CP-violating phases associated with the gaugino masses, the squark trilinear mass parameters and the Higgsino mass parameter $\\mu$ may lead to sizable CP-violation in the Higgs sector. For these CP-violation effects to affect the properties of the recently observed SM-like Higgs resonance, the non-standard charged and neutral Higgs bosons masses must be of the order of the weak scale, and both $\\mu$ as well as the trilinear stop mass parameter $A_t$ must be of the order or larger than the stop mass parameters. Constraints on this possibility come from direct searches for non-standard Higgs bosons, precision measurements on the lightest neutral Higgs properties, including its mass, and electric dipole moments. In this article, we discuss these constraints within the MSSM, trying ...

Search for Higgs Bosons Produced in Association with b-Quarks  

We present a search for neutral Higgs bosons ? decaying into bb?, produced in association with b quarks in ppb? collisions. This process could be observable in supersymmetric models with high values of tan ?. The event sample corresponds to 2.6 fb-1 of integrated luminosity collected with the CDF II detector at the Fermilab Tevatron collider. We search for an enhancement in the mass of the two leading jets in events with three jets identified as coming from b quarks using a displaced vertex algorithm. A data-driven procedure is used to estimate the dijet mass spectrum of the nonresonant multijet background. The contributions of backgrounds and a possible Higgs boson signal are determined by a two-dimensional fit of the data, using the dijet mass together with an additional variable which is sensitive to the flavor composition of the three tagged jets. We set mass-dependent limits on ?(ppb? = ?b) x ?(?= bb?) which are applicable for a narrow scalar particle ? produced in association with b quarks. We also set limits on tan ? in supersymmetric Higgs models including the effects of the Higgs boson width.

NNLO QCD corrections to Higgs pair production via vector boson fusion at hadron colliders  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The measurement of the Higgs pair production via vector boson fusion can be used to test the trilinear Higgs self-coupling and the $VVHH$ $(V=Z,W)$ quartic gauge interactions. In this paper we present the calculations of the next-to-next-to-leading order (NNLO) QCD corrections to the SM Higgs boson pair production via vector boson fusion at hadron colliders with the center-of-mass energy of $14~{\\rm TeV}$, $33~{\\rm TeV}$ and $100~{\\rm TeV}$ by using the structure function approach, and study the residual uncertainties from the factorization/renormalization scale, parton distribution functions and $\\alpha_s$ on the total cross section. We also provide the distributions of transverse momenta, rapidities, invariant mass and azimuthal angle separations of final products. We observe a considerable quantitative reduction in the scale uncertainty due to the NNLO QCD corrections, and find that the total cross section is sensitive to the trilinear Higgs self-coupling.

Reach of CERN LEP2 and Fermilab Tevatron upgrades for Higgs bosons in supersymmetric models  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Luminosity upgrades of the Fermilab Tevatron pp¯ collider have been shown to allow experimental detection of a standard model (SM) Higgs boson up to mHSM?120 GeV via WHSM?l?bb¯ events. This limit nearly saturates the parameter space for many models of weak scale supersymmetry (SUSY) with a minimal particle content. It is therefore interesting to examine the SUSY Higgs reach of future Tevatron experiments. Contours are presented of Higgs boson reach for CERN LEP2 and Tevatron luminosity upgrades for three models of weak scale SUSY: the minimal supersymmetric standard model, the minimal supergravity model and a simple gauge mediated SUSY breaking model. In each case we find a substantial gain in reach at the Tevatron with integrated luminosity increasing from 10 fb-1 to 25–30 fb-1. With the larger integrated luminosity, a Higgs boson search at the Tevatron should be able to probe essentially the entire parameter space of these models. While a discovery would be very exciting, a negative result would severely constrain our ideas about how weak scale supersymmetry is realized.

Study of diphoton decays of the lightest scalar Higgs boson in the Next-to-Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The CMS and ATLAS experiments at the LHC have announced the discovery of a Higgs boson with mass at approximately 125 GeV/c2 in the search for the Standard Model Higgs boson via, notably, the ?? and ZZ to four leptons final states. Considering the recent results of the Higgs boson searches from the LHC, we study the lightest scalar Higgs boson h1 in the Next-to-Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model by restricting the next-to-lightest scalar Higgs boson h2 to be the observed to the 125 GeV/c2 state. We perform a scan over the relevant NMSSM parameter space that is favoured by low fine-tuning considerations. Moreover, we also take the experimental constraints from direct searches, B-physics observables, relic density, and anomalous magnetic moment of the muon measurements, as well as the theoretical considerations, into account in our specific scan. We find that the signal rate in the two-photon final state for the NMSSM Higgs boson h1 with the mass range from about 80 GeV/c2 to about 122 GeV/c2 can be enhanced by a factor of up to 3.5 when the Higgs boson h2 is required to be compatible with the excess from latest LHC results. This motivates the extension of the search at the LHC for the Higgs boson h1 in the diphoton final state down to masses of 80 GeV/c2, particularly with the upcoming proton-proton collision data to be taken at center-of-mass energies of 13–14 TeV.

SUSY Higgs boson flavor-changing neutral currents at the LHC

We compute and analyze the Flavor-Changing Neutral Current (FCNC) interactions of Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model Higgs bosons (h = h0, H0, A0) with heavy quarks (top and bottom), focusing on the strongly-interacting sector. We correlate the Higgs bosons production cross-section at the LHC with the FCNC decay branching ratios and find the maximum allowed values of the production rates, sigma(pp -> h -> qq') = sigma(pp -> h) x B(h -> qq') (qq'= tc or bs) after taking into account limits from low energy data on flavor-changing interactions. We single out the top channel, with a maximum production rate of sigma^max(pp -> h -> tc) =~ 10^-3 - 10^-2 pb, as the most promising FCNC channel to be detected at the LHC.

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract We calculate the three-loop matching coefficient C H H , required for a consistent description of Higgs boson pair production in gluon fusion through next-to-next-to-leading order QCD in the heavy top quark approximation. We also compute the g g ? H H amplitude in m t ? ? approximation in the full theory and show its consistency with an earlier computation in heavy-top effective theory.

The Higgs boson and Top quark masses as tests of Electroweak Vacuum Stability  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The measurements of the Higgs boson and top quark masses can be used to extrapolate the Standard Model Higgs potential at energies up to the Planck scale. Adopting a NNLO renormalization procedure, we: i) find that electroweak vacuum stability is at present allowed, discuss the associated theoretical and experimental errors and the prospects for its future tests; ii) determine the boundary conditions allowing for the existence of a shallow false minimum slightly below the Planck scale, which is a stable configuration that might have been relevant for primordial inflation; iii) derive a conservative upper bound on type I seesaw right-handed neutrino masses, following from the requirement of electroweak vacuum stability.

H parity and the stable Higgs boson in the SO(5) x U(1) gauge-Higgs unification

In the SO(5) x U(1) gauge-Higgs unification model in the Randall-Sundrum warped space there results the conservation of the H parity. The H parity is assigned to all 4D fields including excited modes in Kaluza-Klein towers. The neutral Higgs boson is the lightest particle of odd H parity, consequently becoming absolutely stable. Its mass is found to be 70 \\sim 135 GeV for the warp factor z_L = 10^5 \\sim 10^{15}.

The Collider Detector at Fermilab (CDF) is a Tevatron experiment at Fermilab. The Tevatron, a powerful particle accelerator, accelerates protons and antiprotons close to the speed of light, and then makes them collide head-on inside the CDF detector. The CDF detector is used to study the products of such collisions. The CDF Physics Group at Fermilab is organized into six working groups, each with a specific focus.

Inverse seesaw in NMSSM and 126 GeV Higgs boson  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

We consider extensions of the next-to-minimal supersymmetric model (NMSSM) in which the observed neutrino masses are generated through a TeV scale inverse seesaw mechanism. The new particles associated with this mechanism can have sizable couplings to the Higgs field which can yield a large contribution to the mass of the lightest CP-even Higgs boson. With this new contribution, a 126 GeV Higgs is possible along with order of 200 GeV masses for the stop quarks for a broad range of tan ?. The Higgs production and decay in the diphoton channel can be enhanced due to this new contribution. It is also possible to solve the little hierarchy problem in this model without invoking a maximal value for the NMSSM trilinear coupling and without severe restrictions on the value of tan ?.

Search for Neutral Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model Higgs Bosons Decaying to Tau Pairs in pp Collisions at sqrt[s]=7??TeV  

SciTech Connect

A search for neutral MSSM Higgs bosons in pp collisions at the LHC at a center-of-mass energy of 7 TeV is presented. The results are based on a data sample corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 36 inverse picobarns recorded by the CMS experiment. The search uses decays of the Higgs bosons to tau pairs. No excess is observed in the tau-pair invariant-mass spectrum. The resulting upper limits on the Higgs boson production cross section times branching fraction to tau pairs, as a function of the pseudoscalar Higgs boson mass, yield stringent new bounds in the MSSM parameter space.

Search for Higgs Boson Production in Association with a W Boson in 1.96-TeV Proton - Antiproton Collisions  

SciTech Connect

We have searched for the Standard Model Higgs boson production in association with a W{sup {+-}} boson. This search is based on the data collected between February 2002 and May 2007, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 1.9 fb{sup -1} collected by the Collider Detector at Fermilab (CDF) at the Tevatron which is a p{bar p} collider at a center of mass energy 1.96 TeV. W+Higgs channel is one of the most promising channels for the Higgs search at Tevatron in the low Higgs mass region (m{sub H} < 135 GeV/c{sup 2}), where Higgs boson decays into b{bar b} dominantly. The detection of lepton from the W boson decay makes the W+Higgs events much cleaner than the direct Higgs production events which have the largest production cross section. Experimentally we select events with a high p{sub T} lepton, high missing transverse energy and two b-quark jets. This signature is same as for the W+jets background which has a huge cross section. To reduce the W+jets background, b-jet identification algorithms are applied to at least one jet. The expected signal events in 1.9fb{sup -1} are 1.82 {+-} 0.15 and 1.68 {+-} 0.20 for one b-tagged events and two b-tagged events, respectively. The observed data is 805 for one b-tagged events and 173 for two b-tagged events. They are consistent with the Standard Model background expectation. After selecting the events, Neural Network (NN) discriminant technique is performed to distinguish the signal events from still residual backgrounds. We see no evidence for a Higgs signal in the dijet mass distribution and in the NN output distribution. We set a 95% confidence level upper limit on the W+Higgs production cross section times the branching ratio of the Higgs decaying into a b{bar b} pair. We obtained {sigma}(p{bar p} {yields} W{sup {+-}}H) x BR(H {yields} b{bar b}) < 1.4 to 0.9 pb for Higgs masses from 110 GeV/c{sup 2} to 150 GeV/c{sup 2} using the NN output distribution. The limits are about 10 times higher than the Standard Model expectation in the low Higgs mass region.

Higgs Boson Yukawa Form Factors from Supersymmetric Radiative Fermion Masses  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The recent discovery of the Higgs-like resonance at $125\\,\\rm{GeV}$ has opened up new avenues in the search for beyond standard model physics. Hints of such extensions could manifest themselves as modifications in the Higgs-fermion couplings and other Higgs related observables. In this work, we study aspects of a class of models where the light fermion masses are radiatively generated. Specifically, we consider models where the light fermion masses, partially or completely, arise from chiral violation in the soft supersymmetry-breaking sector. In these models, the radiatively generated Higgs-fermion Yukawa form factors have non-trivial characteristics and will modify Higgs-fermion couplings from their standard model expectations. A radiatively generated fermion mass could also potentially contribute to large anomalous magnetic moments; this is particularly interesting in the case of the muon where a persistent discrepancy, at the level of around $3\\,\\sigma$, has existed between experiment and theory.

A search for the standard model Higgs boson decaying to W+W- in pp collisions at sqrt(s) = 7 TeV is reported. The data are collected at the LHC with the CMS detector, and correspond to an integrated luminosity of 4.6 inverse femtobarns. The W+W- candidates are selected in events with two charged leptons and large missing transverse energy. No significant excess of events above the standard model background expectations is observed, and upper limits on the Higgs boson production relative to the standard model Higgs expectation are derived. The standard model Higgs boson is excluded in the mass range 129-270 GeV at 95% confidence level.

Next-to-next-to-leading order QCD corrections to light Higgs pair production via vector boson fusion in the type II two-Higgs-doublet model

We present the precision predictions on the pair production of light, CP-even Higgs boson in weak vector boson fusion (VBF) up to the QCD next-to-next-to-leading order (NNLO) at hadron colliders within the CP-conserving type II two-Higgs-doublet model [2HDM(II)] by adopting the structure function approach. We investigate the model parameter dependence, residual uncertainties from the factorization/renormalization scale, PDFs, and ?s on the integrated cross section at the QCD NNLO and find that the NNLO QCD corrections can reduce the scale uncertainty significantly. By analyzing the kinematic distributions of final Higgs bosons, we can extract the CP-even Higgs resonance via the H0?h0h0 channel as a means of probing the extension of the standard model (SM) Higgs sector.

Exotic decays of the 125 GeV Higgs boson  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

We perform an extensive survey of nonstandard Higgs decays that are consistent with the 125 GeV Higgs-like resonance. Our aim is to motivate a large set of new experimental analyses on the existing and forthcoming data from the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). The explicit search for exotic Higgs decays presents a largely untapped discovery opportunity for the LHC collaborations, as such decays may be easily missed by other searches. We emphasize that the Higgs is uniquely sensitive to the potential existence of new weakly coupled particles and provide a unified discussion of a large class of both simplified and complete models that give rise to characteristic patterns of exotic Higgs decays. We assess the status of exotic Higgs decays after LHC run I. In many cases we are able to set new nontrivial constraints by reinterpreting existing experimental analyses. We point out that improvements are possible with dedicated analyses and perform some preliminary collider studies. We prioritize the analyses according to their theoretical motivation and their experimental feasibility.

Electroweak Symmetry Breaking and the Higgs Boson: Confronting Theories at Colliders  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

In this review, we discuss methods of parsing direct and indirect information from collider experiments regarding the Higgs boson and describe simple ways in which experimental likelihoods can be consistently reconstructed and interfaced with model predictions in pertinent parameter spaces. Ultimately these methods are used to constrain a five-dimensional parameter space describing a model-independent framework for electroweak symmetry breaking. We review prevalent scenarios for extending the electroweak symmetry breaking sector relative to the Standard Model and emphasize their predictions for nonstandard Higgs phenomenology that could be observed in LHC data if naturalness is realized in particular ways. Specifically we identify how measurements of Higgs couplings can be used to imply the existence of new physics at particular scales within various contexts, highlighting some parameter spaces of interest in order to give examples of how the data surrounding the new state can most effectively be used to constrain specific models of weak scale physics.

Phase structure and Higgs boson mass in a Higgs-Yukawa model with a dimension-6 operator  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We investigate the impact of a $\\lambda_6 \\varphi^6$ term included in a chirally invariant lattice Higgs-Yukawa model. Such a term could emerge from BSM physics at some larger energy scale. We map out the phase structure of the Higgs-Yukawa model with positive $\\lambda_6$ and negative quartic self coupling of the scalar fields. To this end, we evaluate the constraint effective potential in lattice perturbation theory and also determine the magnetization of the model via numerical simulations which allow us to reach also non-perturbative values of the couplings. As a result, we find a complex phase structure with first and second order phase transitions identified through the magnetization. Further we analyze the effect of such a $\\varphi^6$ term on the lower Higgs boson mass bound to see, whether the standard model lower mass bound can be altered.

Kinematics in Vector Boson Fusion  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The vector boson fusion process leads to two forward/backward jets (tag jets) and the produced state, a Higgs boson in this case, moving slowly in the p-p C.M. frame at the LHC. For the case of Higgs decaying to W+W (W*) with Higgs mass below 180 GeV, the W bosons have low momentum in the Higgs C.M. For the case of W leptonic decays, this fact allows for an approximate reconstruction of the two final state neutrinos. In turn, those solutions then provide additional kinematic cuts against background.

Tevatron Constraints on Models of the Higgs Boson with Exotic Spin and Parity Using Decays to Bottom-Antibottom Quark Pairs  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Combined constraints from the CDF and D0 Collaborations on models of the Higgs boson with exotic spin $J$ and parity $P$ are presented and compared with results obtained assuming the standard model value $J^P=0^+$. Both collaborations analyzed approximately 10~fb$^{-1}$ of proton-antiproton collisions with a center-of-mass energy of 1.96~TeV collected at the Fermilab Tevatron. Two models predicting exotic Higgs bosons with $J^P=0^-$ and $J^P=2^+$ are tested. The kinematic properties of exotic Higgs boson production in association with a vector boson differ from those predicted for the standard model Higgs boson. Upper limits at the 95\\% credibility level on the production rates of the exotic Higgs bosons, expressed as fractions of the standard model Higgs boson production rate, are set at 0.36 for both the $J^P=0^-$ hypothesis and the $J^P=2^+$ hypothesis. If the production rate times the branching ratio to a bottom-antibottom pair is the same as that predicted for the standard model Higgs boson, then the exotic bosons are excluded with significances of 5.0 standard deviations and 4.9 standard deviations for the $J^P=0^-$ and $J^P=2^+$ hypotheses, respectively.

New mechanism for neutrino mass generation and triply charged Higgs bosons at the LHC  

SciTech Connect

We propose a new mechanism for generating small neutrino masses which predicts the relation m{sub {nu}}{approx}v{sup 4}/M{sup 3}, where v is the electroweak scale, rather than the conventional seesaw formula m{sub {nu}}{approx}v{sup 2}/M. Such a mass relation is obtained via effective dimension seven operators LLHH(H{sup {dagger}}H)/M{sup 3}, which arise when an isospin 3/2 Higgs multiplet {phi} is introduced along with isotriplet leptons. The masses of these particles are naturally in the TeV scale. The triply charged Higgs boson contained in {phi} can be pair produced at the LHC and the Tevatron, with {phi}{sup +++} decaying into W{sup +}l{sup +}l{sup +} or W{sup +}W{sup +}W{sup +}, possibly with displaced vertices. The leptonic decays of {phi}{sup +++} will help discriminate between normal and inverted hierarchies of neutrino masses. This scenario also allows for raising the standard Higgs boson mass to values in excess of 500 GeV.

Effective Interaction of Electroweak-Interacting Dark Matter with Higgs Boson and Its Phenomenology  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We study phenomenology of electroweak-interacting fermionic dark matter (DM) with a mass of $\\mathcal{O}(100)$ GeV. Constructing the effective Lagrangian that describes the interactions between the Higgs boson and the SU(2)$_L$ isospin multiplet fermion, we evaluate the electric dipole moment (EDM) of electron, the signal strength of Higgs boson decay to two photons and the spin-independent elastic-scattering cross section with proton. As representative cases, we consider the SU(2)$_L$ triplet fermions with zero/nonzero hypercharges and SU(2)$_L$ doublet fermion. It is found that the electron EDM gives stringent constraints on those model parameter spaces. In the cases of the triplet fermion with zero hypercharge and the doublet fermion, the Higgs signal strength does not deviate from the standard model prediction by more than a few % once the current DM direct detection constraint is taken into account, even if the CP violation is suppressed. On the contrary, $\\mathcal{O}(10$-$20)$ % deviation may occur in t...

The dark photon, $A^\\prime$, and the dark Higgs boson, $h^\\prime$, are hypothetical constituents featured in a number of recently proposed Dark Sector Models. Assuming prompt decays of both dark particles, we search for their production in the so-called Higgs-strahlung channel, $e^+e^- \\rightarrow A^\\prime h'$, with $h^\\prime \\rightarrow A^\\prime A^\\prime$. We investigate ten exclusive final-states with $A^\\prime \\rightarrow e^+e^-$, $\\mu^+\\mu^-$, or $\\pi^+\\pi^-$, in the mass ranges $0.1$~GeV/$c^2$~$section, $\\cal B \\times \\sigma_{\\mathrm{Born}}$, on the Born cross section, $\\sigma_{\\mathrm{Born}}$, and on the dark photon coupling to the dark Higgs boson times the kinetic mixing between the Standard Model photon and the dark photon, $\\alpha_D \\times \\epsilon^2$. These limits improve upon and cover wider mass ranges than previous experiments. The limits from the final-states $3(\\pi^+\\pi^-)$ and $2(e^+e^-)X$ are the first placed by any experiment. For $\\alpha_D$ equal to 1/137, $m_{h'}<$ 8 GeV/$c^2$, and $m_{A^\\prime}<$ 1 GeV/$c^2$, we exclude values of the mixing parameter, $\\epsilon$, above $\\sim 8 \\times 10^{-4}$.

Interference effects of neutral MSSM Higgs bosons with a generalised narrow-width approximation  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Mixing effects in the MSSM Higgs sector can give rise to a sizeable interference between the neutral Higgs bosons. On the other hand, factorising a more complicated process into production and decay parts by means of the narrow-width approximation (NWA) simplifies the calculation. The standard NWA, however, does not account for interference terms. Therefore, we introduce a generalisation of the NWA (gNWA) which allows for a consistent treatment of interference effects between nearly mass-degenerate particles. Furthermore, we apply the gNWA at the tree and 1-loop level to an example process where the neutral Higgs bosons $h$ and $H$ are produced in the decay of a heavy neutralino and subsequently decay into a fermion pair. The $h-H$ propagator mixing is found to agree well with the approximation of Breit-Wigner propagators times finite wave-function normalisation factors, both leading to a significant interference contribution. The factorisation of the interference term based on on-shell matrix elements reproduces the full interference result within a precision of better than 1% for the considered process. The gNWA also enables the inclusion of contributions beyond the 1-loop order into the most precise prediction.

Measurement of the heavy neutral MSSM Higgs bosons H and A production in the process gamma gamma --> A, H --> b anti-b at the Photon Linear Collider has been considered in two independent analyses for the parameter range corresponding to the so-called "LHC wedge". Significantly different conclusions were obtained; signal to background ratio 36 vs 2. Here assumptions and results of these two analyses are compared. We have found that differences in the final results are mainly due to different assumptions on gamma-gamma-luminosity spectra, jet definitions and selection cuts.

In this article, we compute the gluon fusion Higgs boson cross-section at N3LO through the second term in the threshold expansion. This calculation constitutes a major milestone towards the full N3LO cross section. Our result has the best formal accuracy in the threshold expansion currently available, and includes contributions from collinear regions besides subleading corrections from soft and hard regions, as well as certain logarithmically enhanced contributions for general kinematics. We use our results to perform a critical appraisal of the validity of the threshold approximation at N3LO in perturbative QCD.

Final state interactions at the threshold of Higgs boson pair production

We study the effect of final state interactions at the threshold of Higgs boson pair production in the Glashow-Weinberg-Salam model. We consider three major processes of the pair production in the model: lepton pair annihilation, ZZ fusion, and WW fusion. We find that the corrections caused by the effect for these processes are markedly different. According to our results, the effect can cause non-negligible corrections to the cross sections for lepton pair annihilation and small corrections for ZZ fusion, and this effect is negligible for WW fusion.

Search for invisibly decaying Higgs bosons in e+e- -> Zoho production at sqrt(s) = 183 - 209 GeV  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

A search is performed for Higgs bosons decaying into invisible final states, produced in association with a Zo boson in e+e- collisions at energies between 183 and 209 GeV. The search is based on data samples collected by the OPAL detector at LEP corresponding to an integrated luminosity of about 660 pb-1. The analysis aims to select events containing the hadronic decay products of the Zo boson and large missing momentum, as expected from Higgs boson decay into a pair of stable weakly interacting neutral particles, such as the lightest neutralino in the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model. The same analysis is applied to a search for nearly invisible Higgs boson cascade decays into stable weakly interacting neutral particles. No excess over the expected background from Standard Model processes is observed. Limits on the production of invisibly decaying Higgs bosons produced in association with a Zo boson are derived. Assuming a branching ratio BR(ho->invisible)=1, a lower limit of 108.2 GeV is placed on the Higgs boson mass at the 95% confidence level. Limits on the production of nearly invisibly decaying Higgs bosons are also obtained.

Search for standard model Higgs bosons decaying to w-boson pairs in proton-anti-proton collisions at s**(1/2) = 1.96 TeV  

SciTech Connect

This thesis describes a search for standard model Higgs bosons decaying to W boson pairs in proton-anti-proton collisions at a center of mass energy of 1.96 TeV using the CDF II detector. The decay to W bosons is dominant for Higgs masses greater than about 135 GeV. The final state examined consists of two leptons and missing transverse energy from the leptonic decay of one or more W bosons. The signal production mechanisms included are gluon fusion, associated production with a W or Z boson, and vector boson fusion. Matrix element calculations and artificial neural networks are used to discriminate signal from background for Higgs masses in the range 110 {le} M{sub H} {le} 200 GeV. No significant excess of events is observed at any of the Higgs masses investigated. Upper limits on the standard model Higgs cross section are set at 95% confidence for each Higgs mass investigated, the most stringent limit being 1.63 times the predicted standard model cross section for a Higgs mass of 160 GeV.

Tevatron Constraints on Models of the Higgs Boson with Exotic Spin and Parity Using Decays to Bottom-Antibottom Quark Pairs  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Combined constraints from the CDF and D0 Collaborations on models of the Higgs boson with exotic spin $J$ and parity $P$ are presented and compared with results obtained assuming the standard model value $J^P=0^+$. Both collaborations analyzed approximately 10~fb$^{-1}$ of proton-antiproton collisions with a center-of-mass energy of 1.96~TeV collected at the Fermilab Tevatron. Two models predicting exotic Higgs bosons with $J^P=0^-$ and $J^P=2^+$ are tested. The kinematic properties of exotic Higgs boson production in association with a vector boson differ from those predicted for the standard model Higgs boson. Upper limits at the 95\\% credibility level on the production rates of the exotic Higgs bosons, expressed as fractions of the standard model Higgs boson production rate, are set at 0.36 for both the $J^P=0^-$ hypothesis and the $J^P=2^+$ hypothesis. If the production rate times the branching ratio to a bottom-antibottom pair is the same as that predicted for the standard model Higgs boson, then the exo...

Higgs boson production in association with top quarks in the POWHEG BOX  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We present results from the analytic calculation of top+antitop+Higgs hadronic production at Next-to-Leading Order in QCD interfaced with parton-shower Monte Carlo event generators in the POWHEG BOX framework. We consider kinematic distributions of the top quark and Higgs boson at the 8 TeV Large Hadron Collider and study the theoretical uncertainties due to specific choices of renormalization/factorization scales and parton-showering algorithms, namely PYTHIA and HERWIG. The importance of spin-correlations in the production and decay stages of a top/antitop quark is discussed on the example of kinematic distributions of leptons originating from the top/antitop decays. The corresponding code is now part of the public release of the POWHEG BOX.

What is the origin of the mass of the Higgs boson?  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The purpose of this paper is to present a unified description of mass generation mechanisms that have been investigated so far and that are called the Mach and Higgs proposals. In our mechanism, gravity acts merely as a catalyst and the final expression of the mass depends neither on the intensity nor on the particular properties of the gravitational field. We shall see that these two strategies to provide mass for all bodies that operate independently and competitively can be combined into a single unified theoretical framework. As a consequence of this new formulation we are able to present an answer to the question: what is the origin of the mass of the Higgs boson?

Bounds on Invisible Higgs boson Decays from $t\\bar{t}H$ Production  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We present an upper bound on the branching fraction of the Higgs boson to invisible particles, by recasting a CMS search for stop quarks decaying to $t\\bar{t}+\\missET$. The observed (expected) bound, BF($H\\rightarrow$inv.$)<0. 40 (0.65)$ at 95\\% CL, is the strongest direct limit to date, benefiting from a downward fluctuation in the CMS data in that channel. In addition, we combine this new constraint with existing published constraints to give an observed (expected) bound of BF($H\\rightarrow$inv.$)<0. 40 (0.40)$ at 95\\% CL, and show some of the implications for theories of dark matter which communicate through the Higgs portal.

Introduction to HOBIT, a b-jet identification tagger at the CDF experiment optimized for light Higgs boson searches  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

We present the development and validation of the Higgs Optimized b Identification Tagger (HOBIT), a multivariate b-jet identification algorithm optimized for Higgs boson searches at the CDF experiment at the Fermilab Tevatron. At collider experiments, b taggers allow one to distinguish particle jets containing B hadrons from other jets; these algorithms have been used for many years with great success at CDF. HOBIT has been designed specifically for use in searches for light Higgs bosons decaying via H ? b b ¯ . This fact combined with the extent to which HOBIT synthesizes and extends the best ideas of previous taggers makes HOBIT unique among CDF b-tagging algorithms. Employing feed-forward neural network architectures, HOBIT provides an output value ranging from approximately ?1 (“light-jet like”) to 1 (“b-jet like”); this continuous output value has been tuned to provide maximum sensitivity in light Higgs boson search analyses. When tuned to the equivalent light jet rejection rate, HOBIT tags 54% of b jets in Monte Carlo simulated Higgs boson events (mH=120 GeV/c2) compared to 39% for SecVtx, the most commonly used b tagger at CDF. We present features of the tagger as well as its characterization in the form of b-jet finding efficiencies and false (light-jet) tag rates.

Higgs boson pair production in the D=6 extension of the SM  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We derive the constraints that can be imposed on the dimension-6 effective theory extension of the Standard Model, using gluon-fusion-initiated Higgs boson pair production at the LHC. We use a realistic analysis focussing on the $hh \\rightarrow (b\\bar{b}) ( \\tau^+ \\tau^- )$ final state, including initial-state radiations and non-perturbative effects. We include conservative estimates of the theoretical uncertainties on the signal rate predictions as well as the statistical uncertainties. We first consider a theory containing only modifications of the trilinear coupling through an $c_6 \\lambda\\, H^6/ \\Lambda^2$ Lagrangian term, and then examine the full parameter space of the effective theory, incorporating current bounds obtained through single Higgs boson measurements. We also consider a simplified scenario, where we only allow a sub-set of parameters to vary and set the others to zero. We find that the currently unbounded parameter, $c_6$, could be constrained to lie within $-0.9 \\lesssim c_6 \\lesssim 1.7$ ...

Neutral Higgs-pair production at Linear Colliders within the general 2HDM: quantum effects and triple Higgs boson self-interactions  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The pairwise production of neutral Higgs bosons is analyzed in the context of the future linear colliders, such as the ILC and CLIC, within the general Two-Higgs-Doublet Model (2HDM). The corresponding cross-sections are computed at the one-loop level in full compliance with the current phenomenological bounds and the stringent theoretical constraints inherent to the consistency of the model. We uncover regions across the 2HDM parameter space, mainly for low tan\\beta near 1 and moderate values of the relevant lambda_5 parameter, wherein the radiative corrections to the Higgs-pair production cross sections can comfortably reach 50% This behavior can be traced back to the enhancement capabilities of the trilinear Higgs self-interactions -- a trademark feature of the 2HDM, with no counterpart in the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model. Interestingly enough, the quantum effects are positive for energies around 500 GeV, thereby producing a significant enhancement in the expected number of events precisely around the fiducial startup energy of the ILC. The Higgs-pair production rates can be substantial, typically amounting to a few thousand events per 500 inverse femtobarn of integrated luminosity. In contrast, the corrections are negative in the highest energy range (1 TeV). We also compare the exclusive pairwise production of Higgs bosons with the inclusive gauge boson fusion channels leading to 2H+X finals states, and also with the exclusive triple Higgs boson production. We find that these multiparticle final states can be highly complementary in the overall Higgs bosons search strategy.

Next-to-next-to-leading order QCD corrections to light Higgs pair production via vector boson fusion in type-II two-Higgs-doublet model  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We present the precision predictions on the pair production of light, $CP$-even Higgs in weak vector boson fusion (VBF) up to the QCD next-to-next-to-leading-order (NNLO) at hadron colliders within the $CP$-conserving type-II two-Higgs-doublet model (2HDM(II)) by adopting the structure function approach. We investigate the model parameter dependence, residual uncertainties from the factorization/renormalization scale, PDFs and $\\alpha_s$ on the integrated cross section at the QCD NNLO, and find that the NNLO QCD corrections can reduce the scale uncertainty significantly. By analyzing the kinematic distributions of final Higgs bosons, we can extract the $CP$-even Higgs resonance via $H^0 \\to h^0 h^0$ channel as a means of probing the extension of the Standard Model (SM) Higgs sector.

Natural predictions for the Higgs boson mass and supersymmetric contributions to rare processes  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

In the context of No-Scale F - SU ( 5 ) , a model defined by the convergence of the F -lipped SU ( 5 ) Grand Unified Theory, two pairs of hypothetical TeV scale vector-like supersymmetric multiplets with origins in F -theory, and the dynamically established boundary conditions of No-Scale Supergravity, we predict that the lightest CP-even Higgs boson mass lies within the range of 119.0 GeV to 123.5 GeV, exclusive of the vector-like particle contribution to the mass. With reports by the CMS, ATLAS, CDF, and DØ Collaborations detailing enticing statistical excesses in the vicinity of 120 GeV in searches for the Standard Model Higgs boson, all signs point to an imminent discovery. While basic supersymmetric constructions such as mSUGRA and the CMSSM have already suffered overwhelming reductions in viable parameterization during the LHC?s initial year of operation, about 80% of the original No-Scale F - SU ( 5 ) model space remains viable after analysis of the first 1.1 fb ? 1 of integrated luminosity. This model is moreover capable of handily explaining the small excesses recently reported in the CMS multijet supersymmetry search, and also features a highly favorable “golden” subspace which may simultaneously account for the key rare process limits on the muon anomalous magnetic moment ( g ? 2 ) ? and the branching ratio of the flavor-changing neutral current decay b ? s ? . In addition, the isolated mass parameter responsible for the global particle mass normalization, the gaugino boundary mass M 1 / 2 , is dynamically determined at a secondary local minimization of the minimum of the Higgs potential V min , in a manner which is deeply consistent with all precision measurements at the physical electroweak scale.

Implications of Direct Dark Matter Constraints for Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model Higgs Boson Searches at the Tevatron  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Searches for the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (MSSM) Higgs bosons are among the most promising channels for exploring new physics at the Tevatron. In particular, interesting regions of large $\\tan \\beta$ and small $m_A$ are probed by searches for heavy neutral Higgs bosons, A and H, when they decay to $\\tau^+ \\tau^-$ and $b\\bar{b}$. At the same time, direct searches for dark matter, such as CDMS, attempt to observe neutralino dark matter particles scattering elastically off nuclei. This can occur through t-channel Higgs exchange, which has a large cross section in the case of large $\\tan \\beta$ and small $m_A$. As a result, there is a natural interplay between the heavy, neutral Higgs searches at the Tevatron and the region of parameter space explored by CDMS. We show that if the lightest neutralino makes up the dark matter of our universe, current limits from CDMS strongly constrain the prospects of heavy, neutral MSSM Higgs discovery at the Tevatron (at 3 sigma with 4 fb^-1 per experiment) unless $|\\mu| \\gsim$ 400 GeV. The limits of CDMS projected for 2007 will increase this constraint to $|\\mu| \\gsim$ 800 GeV. On the other hand, if CDMS does observe neutralino dark matter in the near future, it will make the discovery of heavy, neutral MSSM Higgs bosons far more likely at the Tevatron.

Search for a Higgs Boson in the Diphoton Final State in p-pbar Collisions at ?s = 1.96 TeV  

A search for a narrow Higgs boson resonance in the diphoton mass spectrum is presented based on data corresponding to 7.0 fb-1 of integrated luminosity from pp? collisions at ?s = 1.96 TeV collected by the CDF experiment. No evidence of such a resonance is observed, and upper limits are set on the cross section times branching ratio of the resonant state as a function of Higgs boson mass. The limits are interpreted in the context of the standard model and one fermiophobic benchmark model where the data exclude fermiophobic Higgs bosons with masses below 114 GeV/c2 at a 95% Bayesian credibility level.

Measurements of the Higgs boson mass and width in the four-lepton final state and electron reconstruction in the CMS experiment at the LHC  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

This thesis document reports measurements of the mass and width of the new boson re- cently discovered at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), candidating to be the Standard Model Higgs boson. The analysis uses proton-proton collision data recorded by the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) detector at the LHC, corresponding to integrated luminosities of $5.1~fb^{?1}$ at $7~$TeV center of mass energy and $19.7~fb^{?1}$ at $8~$TeV center of mass energy. Set of events selecting Higgs boson via the $H\\to ZZ$ decay channel, where both $Z$ bosons decay to electron or muon lepton pairs, is used for the Higgs boson properties measurements. A precise measurement of its mass has been performed and gives $125.6\\pm0.4\\mbox{(stat)}\\pm0.2\\mbox{(syst)}~$GeV.

This paper studies the pair production of the doubly charged Higgs boson of the left-right symmetric models using multilepton final state in the vector boson fusion (VBF)-like processes. The study is performed in the framework consistent with the model's correction to the standard model $\\rho_{EW}$ parameter. VBF topological cuts, number of leptons in the final state and $p_T$ cuts on the leptons are found to be effective in suppressing the background. Significant mass reach can be achieved for exclusion/discovery of the doubly charge Higgs boson for the upcoming LHC run with a luminosity of $\\mathcal{O}(10^3)$ fb$^{-1}$.

Search for Higgs Bosons and Supersymmetric Particles in Tau Final States  

SciTech Connect

Elementary particle physics tries to find an answer to no minor question: What is our universe made of? To our current knowledge, the elementary constituents of matter are quarks and leptons, which interact via four elementary forces: electromagnetism, strong force, weak force and gravity. All forces, except gravity, can be described in one framework, the Standard Model of particle physics. The model's name reflects its exceptional success in describing all available experimental high energy physics data to high precision up to energies of about 100 GeV. An exception is given by the neutrino masses but even these can be integrated into the model. The Standard Model is based on the requirement of invariance of all physics processes under certain fundamental symmetry transformations. The consideration of these symmetries leads naturally to the correct description of the electromagnetic, weak and strong forces as the exchange of interaction particles, the gauge bosons. However, this formalism has the weakness that it only allows for massless particles. In order to obey the symmetries, a way to introduce the particle masses is given by the Higgs mechanism, which predicts the existence of the only particle of the Standard Model which has yet to be observed: the Higgs boson. In spite of the success of the Standard Model, it has to be considered as a low energy approximation of a more profound theory for various reasons. For example, the underlying theory is expected to allow for an integration of gravity into the framework and to provide a valid particle candidate for the dark matter in our universe. Furthermore, a solution has to be found to the problem that the Higgs boson as a fundamental scalar is sensitive to large radiative corrections driving its mass to the Planck scale of 10{sup 19} GeV. Several models have been proposed to address the remaining open questions of the Standard Model. Currently, the most promising extension of the Standard Model is Supersymmetry, which provides elegant solutions to the named problems by introducing a supersymmetric partner to each Standard Model particle. The superpartners of the matter particles are called squarks and sleptons, while the superpartners of the interaction particles are called gauginos. The mass eigenstates of the gauginos are referred to as charginos and neutralinos, according to their electric charge. Since the predicted supersymmetric particles have not yet been observed, Supersymmetry, if it exists in nature, has to be broken in such a way that the masses of Standard Model particles and of their superpartners differ. During the last decades, the energies accessible to experiments has steadily increased. The Tevatron Accelerator at the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory, with the two multipurpose experiments D0 and CDF, provides currently the highest center-of-mass energy ever reached in experiments using collisions of protons and antiprotons ({radical}s = 1.96 TeV). The study of the particle collisions allows probing of predictions of the Standard Model and its extensions, e.g. Supersymmetry.

First Measurements of the Differential Cross Sections of Higgs Boson Production and Decay in the Four Lepton Final State  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The discovery of a new scalar particle in the search for the Higgs boson at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) was a great success for the ATLAS and CMS collaborations. Additional measurements of this new particle present opportunities to both test the Standard Model (SM) predictions for the Higgs boson and to search for non-SM properties of this new particle. This thesis presents measurements of the mass, signal strength, and production cross sections of the Higgs boson in the $H \\rightarrow ZZ^{(*)} \\rightarrow \\ell\\ell\\ell'\\ell' $($\\ell,\\ell'=e,\\mu$) decay channel. The cross section measurements are performed using 20.3 fb$^{-1}$ of $pp$ collisions at center of mass energy $\\sqrt{s}=8$ TeV collected by the ATLAS detector and the mass and signal strength measurements are performed using an additional 4.5 fb$^{-1}$ of $pp$ collisions at $\\sqrt{s}=7$ TeV. From the data in the $H \\rightarrow4\\ell$ channel, the best estimate of the mass is $124.51~\\pm~0.52~\\rm{(stat)}~\\pm 0.06~\\rm{(syst)}$ GeV. The signal str...

Search for a Higgs boson in the decay channel H ? ZZ(*) ? q $ \\overline {\\text{q}} $ ? ? ? + in pp collisions at $ \\sqrt {s} = 7 $ TeV  

SciTech Connect

A search for the standard model Higgs boson decaying into two Z bosons with subsequent decay into a final state containing two quark jets and two leptons, H to ZZ(*) to q q-bar l-l+ is presented. Results are based on data corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 4.6 inverse femtobarns of proton-proton collisions at sqrt(s)=7 TeV, collected with the CMS detector at the LHC. In order to discriminate between signal and background events, kinematic and topological quantities, including the angular spin correlations of the decay products, are employed. Events are further classified according to the probability of the jets to originate from quarks of light or heavy flavor or from gluons. No evidence for the Higgs boson is found, and upper limits on its production cross section are determined for a Higgs boson of mass between 130 and 600 GeV.

Higgs boson exempt no-scale supersymmetry and its collider and cosmology implications  

SciTech Connect

One of the most straightforward ways to address the flavor problem of low-energy supersymmetry is to arrange for the scalar soft terms to vanish simultaneously at a scale M{sub c} much larger than the electroweak scale. This occurs naturally in a number of scenarios, such as no-scale models, gaugino mediation, and several models with strong conformal dynamics. Unfortunately, the most basic version of this approach that incorporates gaugino mass unification and zero scalar masses at the grand unification scale is not compatible with collider and dark matter constraints. However, experimental constraints can be satisfied if we exempt the Higgs bosons from flowing to zero mass value at the high scale. We survey the theoretical constructions that allow this and investigate the collider and dark matter consequences. A generic feature is that the sleptons are relatively light. Because of this, these models frequently give a significant contribution to the anomalous magnetic moment of the muon, and neutralino-slepton coannihilation can play an important role in obtaining an acceptable dark matter relic density. Furthermore, the light sleptons give rise to a large multiplicity of lepton events at colliders, including a potentially suggestive clean trilepton signal at the Tevatron, and a substantial four lepton signature at the LHC.

Phantom of Higgs Boson Versus Hierarchy of Stationary States of Superhigh Energies  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

As is known, the Standard Model mainly ideologically and qualitatively focuss the experimenters in their search of new mass states (of EP- elementary particles). The exact quantitative prognosis of their properties, especially of masses, lays outside opportunities of the usual theory. Model of Stationary states of EP within the framework of the Wave Universe Concept [Chechelnitsky, 1980-2001] points on existence of Hierarchy of physically distinguished - stationary (elite, dominant) states described by the mass formulas, in particular, in a range 10-210 Gev/c^2. The states close to: ..., 101.5; 107.3; 112.76-113; 139.5-143; 147.6; 202 Gev/c^2 should be observed. Apparently, the experiment already confirms this prognosis in a range up to 100 Gev/c^2. You see preferable states, observable already now in experiment, it - not rejected by the usual theory as the candidates in constituents of Standard model (for example, not holding Higgs bosons), but quite real displays of stationary (first of all, -dominant) mass states. Last data of L3 (CERN) Collaboration really specify displays of new mass states and close to 103.7; 108.9; 114.5 Gev/c^2.

Production and FCNC decay of supersymmetric Higgs bosons into heavy quarks in the LHC  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We analyze the production and subsequent decay of the neutral MSSM Higgs bosons (h = h^0, H^0, A^0) mediated by flavor changing neutral currents (FCNC) in the LHC collider. We have computed the h-production cross-section times the FCNC branching ratio, \\sigma(pp -> h -> qq') = \\sigma(pp -> h) B(h -> qq'), in the LHC focusing on the strongly-interacting FCNC sector. Here qq' is an electrically neutral pair of quarks of different flavors, the dominant modes being those containing a heavy quark: tc or bs. We determine the maximum production rates for each of these modes and identify the relevant regions of the MSSM parameter space, after taking into account the severe restrictions imposed by low energy FCNC processes. The analysis of \\sigma(pp -> h -> qq') singles out regions of the MSSM parameter space different from those obtained by maximizing only the branching ratio, due to non-trivial correlations between the parameters that maximize/minimize each isolated factor. The production rates for the bs channel can be huge for a FCNC process (0.1-1 pb), but its detection can be problematic. The production rates for the tc channel are more modest (10^{-3}-10^{-2} pb), but its detection should be easier due to the clear-cut top quark signature. A few thousand tc events could be collected in the highest luminosity phase of the LHC, with no counterpart in the SM.

Search for a CP-odd Higgs boson decaying to $Zh$ in $pp$ collisions at $\\sqrt{s} = 8$ TeV with the ATLAS detector  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

A search for a heavy, CP-odd Higgs boson, $A$, decaying into a $Z$ boson and a 125 GeV Higgs boson, $h$, with the ATLAS detector at the LHC is presented. The search uses proton--proton collision data at a centre-of-mass energy of 8 TeV corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 20.3 fb$^{-1}$. Decays of CP-even $h$ bosons to $\\tau\\tau$ or $bb$ pairs with the $Z$ boson decaying to electron or muon pairs are considered, as well as $h \\rightarrow bb$ decays with the $Z$ boson decaying to neutrinos. No evidence for the production of an $A$ boson in these channels is found and the 95% confidence level upper limits derived for $\\sigma (gg\\rightarrow A) \\times \\mbox{BR}(A\\rightarrow Zh) \\times \\mbox{BR}(h\\rightarrow f\\bar{f})$ are 0.098--0.013 pb for $f=\\tau$ and 0.57--0.014 pb for $f=b$ in a range of $m_A =$ 220--1000 GeV. The results are combined and interpreted in the context of two-Higgs-doublet models.

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

We present a search for the Higgs boson in final states with two oppositely charged leptons and large missing transverse energy as expected in H?WW??????? decays. The events are selected from the full Run II data sample of 9.7??fb-1 of pp¯ collisions collected with the D0 detector at the Fermilab Tevatron Collider at s=1.96??TeV. To validate our search methodology, we measure the nonresonant WW production cross section and find ?WW=11.6±0.7??pb, in agreement with the standard model prediction. In the Higgs boson search, no significant excess above the background expectation is observed. Upper limits at the 95% confidence level on the Higgs boson production cross section are therefore derived. Within the standard model, the Higgs boson mass range 159Higgs boson production cross sections 4.1 times larger than the standard model expectation, which is compatible with the presence of a Higgs boson at this mass. Within a theoretical framework with a fourth generation of fermions, the mass range 125Higgs boson couplings, which yields an exclusion of fermiophobic Higgs boson production cross sections 3.1 times larger than the expectation for MH=125??GeV.

A search is performed for WH production with a light Higgs boson decaying to hidden-sector particles resulting in clusters of collimated electrons, known as electron-jets. The search is performed with 2.04 fb?1 of data collected in 2011 with the ATLAS detector at the Large Hadron Collider in proton–proton collisions at . One event satisfying the signal selection criteria is observed, which is consistent with the expected background rate. Limits on the product of the WH production cross section and the branching ratio of a Higgs boson decaying to prompt electron-jets are calculated as a function of a Higgs boson mass in the range from 100 to 140 GeV.

Higgs boson exempt no-scale supersymmetry with a neutrino seesaw mechanism: Implications for lepton flavor violation and leptogenesis  

SciTech Connect

Motivated by the observation of neutrino oscillations, we extend the Higgs boson exempt no-scale supersymmetry model by adding three heavy right-handed neutrino chiral supermultiplets to generate the light neutrino masses and mixings. The neutrino Yukawa couplings can induce new lepton-flavor violating couplings among the soft terms in the course of renormalization group running down from the boundary scale. We study the effects this has on the predictions for low-energy probes of lepton-flavor violation (LFV). Heavy right-handed neutrinos also provide a way to generate the baryon asymmetry through leptogenesis. We find that consistency with LFV and leptogenesis puts strong requirements on either the form of the Yukawa mass matrix or the smallness of the Higgs up soft mass. In all cases, we generically expect that new physics LFV is nonzero and can be found in a future experiment.

Composite bosonic baryon dark matter on the lattice: SU(4) baryon spectrum and the effective Higgs interaction  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We present the spectrum of baryons in a new SU(4) gauge theory with fundamental fermion constituents. The spectrum of these bosonic baryons is of significant interest for composite dark matter theories. Here, we compare the spectrum and properties of SU(3) and SU(4) baryons, and then compute the dark-matter direct detection cross section via Higgs boson exchange for TeV-scale composite dark matter arising from a confining SU(4) gauge sector. Comparison with the latest LUX results leads to tight bounds on the fraction of the constituent-fermion mass that may arise from electroweak symmetry breaking. Lattice calculations of the dark matter mass spectrum and the Higgs-dark matter coupling are performed on quenched $16^{3} \\times 32$, $32^{3} \\times 64$, $48^{3} \\times 96$, and $64^{3} \\times128$ lattices with three different lattice spacings, using Wilson fermions with moderate to heavy pseudoscalar meson masses. Our results lay a foundation for future analytic and numerical study of composite baryonic dark matter.

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Searches for direct production of chargino ($\\tilde{\\chi}_1^{\\pm}$) and neutralino ($\\tilde{\\chi}_0^{2}$) leading to final states characterized by the presence of a Higgs boson are reported. Events containing missing transverse momentum and one or three leptons are selected, and various channels sensitive to different Higgs decays are considered. The analyses use 20.3 fb$^{-1}$ in $R$-parity conserving phenomenological Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Models and in simplified supersymmetric models.

In what condition can the 125 GeV Higgs boson decay to a pair of on-shell W-bosons?  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We have determined that the decay of the neutral boson at a mass around 125 GeV into an on-shell W^-W^+-pair in a uniform magnetic field becomes, in principle, possible and the new decay channel of this boson in a magnetic field is allowed by the energy and total angular momentum conservation laws. The required magnetic field strength for observation of the measurable effect is ~10^23 G (or in Teslas ~10^19 T). The existence of the other neutral boson with the spin J=0 and with the other mass is not either excluded in the mass range below 2m_W=160.77 GeV.

Combined search for the Standard Model Higgs boson in pp collisions at sqrt(s) = 7 TeV with the ATLAS detector  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

A combined search for the Standard Model Higgs boson with the ATLAS detector at the LHC is presented. The datasets used correspond to integrated luminosities from 4.6 fb^-1 to 4.9 fb^-1 of proton-proton collisions collected at sqrt(s) = 7 TeV in 2011. The Higgs boson mass ranges of 111.4 GeV to 116.6 GeV, 119.4 GeV to 122.1 GeV, and 129.2 GeV to 541 GeV are excluded at the 95% confidence level, while the range 120 GeV to 560 GeV is expected to be excluded in the absence of a signal. An excess of events is observed at Higgs boson mass hypotheses around 126 GeV with a local significance of 2.9 standard deviations (sigma). The global probability for the background to produce an excess at least as significant anywhere in the entire explored Higgs boson mass range of 110-600 GeV is estimated to be ~15%, corresponding to a significance of approximately one sigma.

Higgs funnel region of SUSY dark matter for small $\\tan?$ and renormalization group effects on pseudoscalar Higgs boson with scalar mass non-universality  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

A non-universal scalar mass supergravity type of model is explored where the first two generation of scalars and the third generation of sleptons may be very massive. Lighter or vanishing third generation of squarks as well as Higgs scalars at the unification scale cause the radiative electroweak symmetry breaking constraint to be less prohibitive. Thus, both FCNC/CP-violation problems as well as the naturalness problem are within control. We identify a large slepton mass effect in the RGE of $m_{H_D}^2$ (for the down type of Higgs) that may turn the later negative at the electroweak scale even for a small $\\tan\\beta$. A hyperbolic branch/focus point like effect is found for $m_A^2$ that may result in very light Higgs spectra. The lightest stable particle is dominantly a bino that pair annihilates via Higgs exchange, giving rise to a WMAP satisfied relic density region for all $\\tan\\beta$. Detection prospects of such LSPs in the upcoming dark matter experiments both of direct and indirect types (photon flux) are interesting. The Higgs bosons and the third generation of squarks are light in this scenario and these may be easily probed besides charginos and neutralinos in the early runs of LHC.

Search for Higgs boson production in proton-antiproton collisions at s**(1/2) = 1.96 TeV  

SciTech Connect

We performed a search for Standard Model Higgs boson production in association with W boson (p{bar p} {yields} W{sup {+-}}H {yields} {ell}{nu}b{bar b}) in p{bar p} collisions at {radical}s = 1.96 TeV. The search uses the data collected between February 2002 and February 2006 at Collider Detector at Fermilab (CDF), which corresponds to an integrated luminosity of about 1 fb{sup -1}. The experimental final state of WH {yields} {ell}{nu}b{bar b} process is lepton (e{sup {+-}}/{mu}{sup {+-}}), missing transverse energy and two jets. The largest background in lepton+jets events is W+light flavor process, therefore the identification of jets as b-jets reduces this kind of background significantly. We used displaced SECondary VerTeX b-tagging (SECVTX) technique, which utilizes the signature that b-jets have secondary vertex displaced away from primary vertex because of the long life time of B-mesons. However, there is still much contamination in SECVTX b-tagged jets. Finite resolution of secondary vertex tracking measurements results in false tags, and c-jets are also identified as b-jets due to the long life time of D-mesons frequently. For the purpose of increasing the purity of the SECVTX b-tagged jets, we applied Neural Network to SECVTX tagged jets for the first time by using secondary vertex variables and some variables independent of it. Neural Network filter rejects 65% of light flavor jets and 50% of c-jets from the SECVTX tagged jets. We improved the sensitivity of the Higgs boson signal search by 10% with Neural Network b-tagging technique. Events with one high p{sub T} electron or muon, large missing transverse energy and either single SECVTX b-tagged jet which passes the Neural Network filter or at least two SECVTX b-tagged jets are selected. The number of selected events and dijet mass distributions are consistent with the Standard Model background expectations. Therefore we set an upper limit on {sigma}(p{bar p} {yields} WH) {center_dot} Br(H {yields} b{bar b}) as 3.9 to 1.3 for Higgs boson mass from 110 to 150 GeV/c{sup 2} at 95% confidence level (C.L.). The upper limit obtained from WH {yields} {ell}{nu}b{bar b} process with 1 fb{sup -1} is far away from the Standard Model Higgs boson production expectation by a factor of 20 to 100 as a function of Higgs boson mass. To obtain stronger constraint on the Higgs boson production, we combined the upper limits obtained in processes of ZH {yields} {nu}{bar {nu}}b{bar b}, ZH {yields} {ell}{bar {ell}}b{bar b} and gg {yields} H {yields} W{sup +}W{sup -} {yields} {ell}{bar {ell}}{nu}{bar {nu}} at CDF. The combination of different channels gives a constraint on the ratio of 95% confidence level upper limit divided by the Standard Model prediction (({sigma} {center_dot} Br){sub 95}/({sigma} {center_dot} Br){sub SM}), which results in the ratio as 10 to 40 for Higgs boson mass between 110 and 200 GeV/c{sup 2}. Finally, the combination of Higgs boson searches between CDF and D0 is also performed. The resulting constraint on ({sigma} {center_dot} Br){sub 95}/({sigma} {center_dot} Br){sub SM} is about 4 to 10 for Higgs boson mass between 110 and 200 GeV/c{sup 2}.

Higgs boson decay to charm pair at full one-loop level in the MSSM with flavour violation  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We study the decay of the lightest neutral Higgs boson to a charm quark pair at full one-loop level in the MSSM with non-minimal quark flavour violation (QFV). In the numerical analysis we consider mixing between the second and the third squark generation and all relevant constraints from B meson data are taken into account. It is shown that the full one-loop corrected decay width can be quite sensitive to the MSSM QFV parameters due to large $\\tilde c - \\tilde t$ mixing and large trilinear couplings. After summarising the theoretical and experimental errors, we conclude that an observation of these SUSY QFV effects is possible at the ILC.

Search for charged Higgs bosons in decays of top quarks in proton - antiproton collisions at s**(1/2) = 1.96 TeV

In this dissertation we report on the first direct search for charged Higgs bosons in decays of top quarks in p{bar p} collisions at {radical}s = 1.96 TeV. The search uses a data sample with an integrated luminosity of 2.2 fb{sup -1} collected by the CDF II detector at Fermilab and looks for a resonance in the invariant mass distribution of two jets in the lepton+jets sample of t{bar t} candidates. We observe no evidence of charged Higgs bosons in top quark decays; hence 95% C.L. upper limits on the branching ratio are placed at {Beta}(t {yields} H{sup +}b) < 0.1 to 0.3 for charged Higgs boson masses of 60 to 150 GeV/c{sup 2} assuming {Beta}(H{sup +} {yields} c{bar s}) = 1.0 and {Beta}(t {yields} Wb)+{Beta}(t {yields} H{sup +}b) = 1.0. The upper limits on {Beta}(t {yields} H{sup +}b) are also used as model independent limits on the decay branching ratio of top quarks to any charged scalar bosons beyond the standard model.

Search for the Standard Model Higgs Boson in the Decay Channel H?ZZ?4l in pp Collisions at sqrt[s]=7??TeV  

SciTech Connect

A search for a Higgs boson in the four-lepton decay channel H to ZZ, with each Z boson decaying to an electron or muon pair, is reported. The search covers Higgs boson mass hypotheses in the range 110 < mH < 600 GeV. The analysis uses data corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 4.7 inverse femtobarns recorded by the CMS detector in pp collisions at sqrt(s) = 7 TeV from the LHC. Seventy-two events are observed with four-lepton invariant mass m[4 leptons] > 100 GeV (with thirteen below 160 GeV), while 67.1 +/- 6.0 (9.5 +/-1.3) events are expected from background. The four-lepton mass distribution is consistent with the expectation of standard model background production of ZZ pairs. Upper limits at 95% confidence level exclude the standard model Higgs boson in the ranges 134-158 GeV, 180-305 GeV, and 340 -465 GeV. Small excesses of events are observed around masses of 119, 126, and 320 GeV, making the observed limits weaker than expected in the absence of a signal.

The discovery of a new particle within the search for the Standard Model Higgs boson in the $H \\rightarrow ZZ^{(?)} \\rightarrow 4\\ell$ channel at ATLAS, with about 25 fb$^{?1}$ of data collected in pp collisions at the LHC, is discussed. Different hypotheses on the quantum numbers of the new boson are tested, by means of spin–parity studies based on a matrix element description of the $H \\rightarrow ZZ$ decay amplitude. Prospects for the measurement of the tensor structure of the $HZZ$ vertex in the spin zero hypothesis at a high–luminosity LHC are also presented.

Probing Higgs Boson CP Properties with $t\\bar{t}H$ at the LHC and the 100 TeV pp Collider  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The Higgs boson $H$ has the largest coupling to the top quark $t$ among the standard model (SM) fermions. This is one of the ideal places to investigate new physics beyond SM. In this work, we study the potential of determining Higgs boson $CP$ properties at the LHC and future 33 TeV and 100 TeV $pp$ colliders by analysing various operators formed from final states variables in $t\\bar{t}H$ production. The discrimination power from SM coupling is obtained with Higgs boson reconstructed from $ H\\to \\gamma \\gamma$ and $ H\\to b \\bar{b}$. We find that $t\\bar{t}b\\bar{b}$ process can provide more than 3$\\sigma$ discrimination power with 300 $fb^{-1}$ integrated luminosity in a wide range of allowed Higgs to top couplings for the LHC, the 33 TeV and 100 TeV colliders. For $t\\bar{t}\\gamma\\gamma$ the discrimination power will be below 3$\\sigma$ at the LHC, while for 33 TeV and 100 TeV colliders, more than 3$\\sigma$ sensitivity can be reached.

Diphoton decay of the Higgs boson and new bound states of top and anti-top quarks  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We consider the constraints, provided by the LHC results on Higgs boson decay into 2 photons and its production via gluon fusion, on the previously proposed Standard Model (SM) strongly bound state $S$ of 6 top quarks and 6 anti-top quarks. A correlation is predicted between the ratios $\\kappa_{\\gamma}$ and $\\kappa_g$ of the Higgs diphoton decay and gluon production amplitudes respectively to their SM values. We estimate the contribution to these amplitudes from one loop diagrams involving the 12 quark bound state $S$ and related excited states using an atomic physics based model. We find two regions of parameter space consistent with the ATLAS and CMS data on ($\\kappa_{\\gamma}$, $\\kappa_g$) at the 3 sigma level: a region close to the SM values ($\\kappa_{\\gamma}=1$, $\\kappa_g =1$) with the mass of the bound state $m_S > 400$ GeV and a region with ($\\kappa_{\\gamma} \\sim 3/2$, $\\kappa_g \\sim -3/4$) corresponding to a bound state mass of $m_S \\sim 220$ GeV.

The search for the production of the Higgs boson associated with a pair of top quarks in the ATLAS experiment is presented. It focuses on Higgs bosons decaying to $b\\bar{b}$ and events containing two leptons (electrons and/or muons). It uses 20.3 fb$^{-1}$ of $pp$ collision data at $\\sqrt{s}$ = 8 TeV collected with the ATLAS detector at the LHC in 2012. No significant excess of events is found and the 95% CL observed (expected) limit is 7.0xSM (4.3xSM).

Search for the Standard Model Higgs Boson in the H to to lepton-hadron and hadron-hadron Decay Modes with the ATLAS Detector  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract In this proceeding, a search for a Higgs boson in the H to ? + ? ? decay mode, where both taus decay hadronically or one decay hadronically and one leptonically. The analysis is based on a data sample of proton-proton collision collected by the ATLAS detector at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at centre-of-mass energies of 7 TeV during 2011, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 4.7 f b ? 1 . No significant excess is observed in the Higgs boson mass range of 100–150 GeV. The observed (expected) limits on the cross-section times branching ratio for H to ? + ? ? at m H = 125 GeV are 6.2(5.9) and 6.3(6.5) for lepton-hadron and hadron-hadron decay modes, respectively.

A search is presented for a standard model-like Higgs boson decaying to the $\\mu^+\\mu^-$ or $\\mathrm{e^+e^-}$ final states based on proton-proton collisions recorded by the CMS experiment at the CERN LHC. The data correspond to integrated luminosities of 5.0$~\\mathrm{fb}^{-1}$ at a centre-of-mass energy of $7~\\mathrm{TeV}$ and $19.7~\\mathrm{fb}^{-1}$ at $8~\\mathrm{TeV}$ for the $\\mu^+\\mu^-$ search, and of $19.7~\\mathrm{fb}^{-1}$ at a centre-of-mass energy of $8~\\mathrm{TeV}$ for the $\\mathrm{e^+e^-}$ search. To enhance the sensitivity of the search, events are categorized by topologies according to production process and dilepton invariant mass resolution. Upper limits on the production cross section times branching fraction at the 95% confidence level are reported for Higgs boson masses in the range from 120 to 150$~\\mathrm{GeV}$. For a Higgs boson with a mass of 125$~\\mathrm{GeV}$ decaying to $\\mu^+\\mu^-$, the observed (expected) upper limit on the production rate is found to be 7.4 ($6.5^{+2.8}_{-1.9}$) t...

Study of Higgs-gauge boson anomalous couplings through $e^-e^+ \\rightarrow W^-W^+H$ at ILC  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

In this work, Higgs couplings with gauge bosons is probed through $e^-e^+ \\rightarrow W^-W^+H$ in an effective Lagrangian framework. An ILC of 500 $GeV$ center of mass energy with possible beam polarization is considered for this purpose. The reach of ILC with integrated luminosity of 300 $fb^{-1}$ in the determination of both the CP-conserving and CP-violating parameters are obtained. Sensitivity of the probe of each of these couplings on the presence of other couplings is investigated. The most influential couplings parameters are $\\bar c_W=-\\bar c_B$. Other parameters of significant effect are $\\bar c_{HW}$ and $\\bar c_{HB}$ among the CP-conserving ones, and $\\tilde c_{HW}$ and $\\tilde c_{HB}$ among the CP-violating ones. CP-violating parameter, $\\tilde c_\\gamma$ seems to have very little influence on the process considered. Detailed study of the angular distributions have presented a way to disentangle the effect of some of these couplings.

It is $m_{H}=125.36\\pm0.37{\\rm (stat)}\\pm0.18{\\rm (syst)}$ GeV. Furthermore, measurement of fiducial and differential cross sections are presented in the $H\\rightarrow\\gamma\\gamma$ decay channel using only the 8 TeV data sample with a luminosity of $20.3{\\rm fb}^{-1}$.

Measurement of the ZZ production cross section and search for the standard model Higgs boson in the four lepton final state in pp¯ collisions  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

We present a measurement of Z boson pair production in pp¯ collisions at 1.96 TeV with 9.6 to 9.8??fb-1 of D0 data. We examine the final states eeee, ee??, and ????. Based on selected data, the measured cross section in the mass region M(Z/?*)>30??GeV is ?(pp¯?Z/?*Z/?*)=1.26-0.36+0.44(stat)-0.15+0.17(syst)±0.08(lumi)??pb; after correcting for the expected ratio of ?(pp¯?Z/?*Z/?*) to ?(pp¯?ZZ), we derive a cross section for pp¯?ZZ production of 1.05-0.30+0.37(stat)-0.12+0.14(syst)±0.06(lumi)??pb. This result is combined with a previous result from the ZZ??+?-??¯ channel resulting in a combined pp¯?ZZ cross section measurement of 1.32-0.25+0.29(stat)±0.12(syst)±0.04(lumi)??pb. These measurements are consistent with the standard model expectation of 1.43±0.10??pb. We extend this analysis to search for the standard model (SM) Higgs boson between 115 and 200 GeV. At a Higgs boson mass of 125 GeV, we expect to set a limit of 43 times the SM expectation at 95% C.L., and set a limit of 42 times the SM expectation at 95% C.L.

Search for a Higgs boson in diphoton final states with the D0 detector in 9.6 fb-1 of p-pbar collisions at sqrt(s)=1.96 TeV  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We present a search for a Higgs boson decaying into a pair of photons based on 9.6 fb-1 of p-pbar collisions at sqrt(s)=1.96 TeV collected with the D0 detector at the Fermilab Tevatron Collider. The search employs multivariate techniques to discriminate signal from the non-resonant background and is separately optimized for a standard model and a fermiophobic Higgs boson. No significant excess of data above the background prediction is observed and upper limits on the product of the cross section and branching fraction are derived at the 95% confidence level as a function of Higgs boson mass. For a standard model Higgs boson with mass of 125 GeV, the observed (expected) upper limits are a factor of 12.8 (8.7) above the standard model prediction. The existence of a fermiophobic Higgs boson with mass in the 100-113 GeV range is excluded at the 95% confidence level.

Measurement of Higgs boson production in the diphoton decay channel in $pp$ collisions at center-of-mass energies of 7 and 8 TeV with the ATLAS detector  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

A measurement of the production processes of the recently discovered Higgs boson is performed in the two-photon final state using 5.4 fb$^{-1}$ of proton-proton collisions data at $\\sqrt{s}=7$ TeV and 20.3 fb$^{-1}$ at $\\sqrt{s}=8$ TeV collected by the ATLAS detector at the Large Hadron Collider. The number of observed Higgs boson decays to diphotons divided by the corresponding Standard Model prediction, called the signal strength, is found to be $\\mu = 1.17 \\pm 0.27$ at the value of the Higgs boson mass measured by ATLAS, $m_{H}$ = 125.4 GeV. The analysis is optimized to measure the signal strengths for individual Higgs boson production processes at this value of $m_{H}$. They are found to be $\\mu_{\\mathrm{ggF}} = 1.32 \\pm 0.38$, $\\mu_{\\mathrm{VBF}} = 0.8 \\pm 0.7$, $\\mu_{{WH}} = 1.0 \\pm 1.6 $, $\\mu_{{ZH}} = 0.1 ^{+3.7}_{-0.1} $, $\\mu_{{t\\bar{t}H}} = 1.6 ^{+2.7}_{-1.8} $, for Higgs boson production through gluon fusion, vector-boson fusion, and in association with a $W$ or $Z$ boson or a top-quark pair, respectively. Compared with the previously published ATLAS analysis, the results reported here also benefit from a new energy calibration procedure for photons and the subsequent reduction of the systematic uncertainty on the diphoton mass resolution. No significant deviations from the predictions of the Standard Model are found.

Repelling Point Bosons  

SciTech Connect

There is a body of conventional wisdom that holds that a solvable quantum problem, by virtue of its solvability, is pathological and thus irrelevant. It has been difficult to refute this view owing to the paucity of theoretical constructs and experimental results. Recent experiments involving equivalent ions trapped in a spatial conformation of extreme anisotropic confinement (longitudinal extension tens, hundreds or even thousands of times transverse extension) have modified the view of relevancy, and it is now possible to consider systems previously thought pathological, in particular point Bosons that repel in one dimension. It has been difficult for the experimentalists to utilize existing theory, mainly due to long-standing theoretical misunderstanding of the relevance of the permutation group, in particular the non-commutativity of translations (periodicity) and transpositions (permutation). This misunderstanding is most easily rectified in the case of repelling Bosons.

Multi-Boson Correlation Interferometry and Boson Sampling in Time  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We develop a general description of multi-boson interference based on correlated measurements in arbitrary passive linear interferometers for single input bosons with arbitrary temporal distributions. Our results allow us to fully describe boson sampling in time at the output of a random interferometer, in which the sampling takes place not only over the interferometer output ports but also over the joint-detection times. For any joint detection, both the time-dependent probability density and the time-averaged probability can be expressed by the permanents of matrices depending on the interferometer evolution and on the boson temporal distributions.

Search for the Standard Model Higgs boson produced in association with top quarks in pp collisions at ?s=8 TeV with the ATLAS detector  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

A search for the Standard Model Higgs boson produced in association with a pair of top quarks, t\\overline{t}H, is presented. The analysis uses 20.3 fb^{-1} of pp collision data at \\sqrt{s} = 8 TeV, collected with the ATLAS detector at the Large Hadron Collider during 2012. The search is designed for the H\\to~b\\overline{b} decay mode and uses events containing one or two leptons (electrons or/and muons). The Higgs boson is assumed to have a mass of 125 GeV. In order to improve the sensitivity of the search, events are categorised according to their jet and b-tagged jet multiplicities. A multivariate technique is used to discriminate between signal and background events, which are dominated by t\\overline{t}+jets production. No significant excess of events above the background expectation is found and an observed (expected) 95% confidence-level limit of 4.1 (2.6) times the Standard Model cross section is obtained.

Exclusive production of heavy charged Higgs boson pairs in the $p p \\to p p H^+ H^-$ reaction at the LHC and FCC  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We calculate differential cross sections for exclusive production of heavy charged scalar, weakly interacting, particles (charged Higgs bosons, charged technipions, etc.) via photon-photon fusion in the $p p \\to p p H^+ H^-$ reaction with exact $2 \\to 4$ kinematics. We present distributions in rapidities, transverse momenta and correlations in azimuthal angles between the protons and between the charged Higgs bosons. As an example, the integrated cross section for $\\sqrt{s}$ = 14 TeV (LHC) is about 0.1 fb and about 0.9 fb at the Future Circular Collider (FCC) for $\\sqrt{s}$ = 100 TeV when assuming $m_{H^{\\pm}}$ = 150 GeV. The results are compared with results obtained within standard equivalent-photon approximation (EPA) known from the literature. We discuss the role of the Dirac and Pauli electromagnetic form factors of the proton. Absorption corrections are calculated for the first time differentially for various distributions. In general, they lead to a damping of the cross section. The damping depends on ...

Measurement of the Jet Momentum Resolution and Search for a light Standard Model Higgs Boson in the H(bb)W(lv) Channel with the CMS Detector at the LHC  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The Higgs boson is the last particle predicted by the Standard Model which remains undetected. Its potential discovery was a main objective of the construction of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN. Its exclusion would necessitate the existence of new physics beyond the Standard Model. A search for the Higgs boson decaying into two bottom quarks in association with the production of a leptonically decaying W boson is presented based on pp collision data recorded with the CMS experiment in 2011, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of L = 4.65 fb?1. Events are selected requiring the presence of an isolated charged lepton (electron or muon), missing transverse energy and two b-jets, which are clustered with the anti-kT jet algorithm at first. The search is performed in a boosted event topology, where both the W boson and the Higgs boson candidates have high momenta and move back-to-back in the transverse detector plane. Artificial Neural Networks are employed to discriminate signal and background ev...

Search for the Standard Model Higgs Boson in ZH??+?-bb¯ Production with the D0 Detector in 9.7??fb-1 of pp¯ Collisions at s=1.96??TeV  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

We present a search for the standard model (SM) Higgs boson produced in association with a Z boson in 9.7??fb-1 of pp¯ collisions collected with the D0 detector at the Fermilab Tevatron Collider at s=1.96??TeV. Selected events contain one reconstructed Z?e+e- or Z??+?- candidate and at least two jets, including at least one jet identified as likely to contain a b quark. To validate the search procedure, we also measure the cross section for ZZ production in the same final state. It is found to be consistent with its SM prediction. We set upper limits on the ZH production cross section times branching ratio for H?bb¯ at the 95% C.L. for Higgs boson masses 90?MH?150??GeV. The observed (expected) limit for MH=125??GeV is 7.1 (5.1) times the SM cross section.

We present a search for associated production of Z and Higgs bosons in 4.2 fb{sup -1} of {bar p}p collisions at {radical}s = 1.96 TeV, produced in RunII of the Tevatron and recorded by the D0 detector. The search is performed in events containing at least two muons and at least two jets. The ZH signal is distinguished from the expected backgrounds by means of multivariate classifiers known as random forests. Binned random forest output distributions are used in comparing the data to background-only and signal+background hypotheses. No excess is observed in the data, so we set upper limits on ZH production with a 95% confidence level.

Boson linewidth in high-temperature superconductors  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

We have considered boson exchange models of high-temperature superconductors which use Eliashberg theory and in which the bare bosons have sharp spectral features. In particular, we have calculated the boson linewidth due to the interaction with the charge carriers. We find for a recent model of Arnold, Mueller, and Swihart that the width of the 10-meV peak in their ?2F is consistent with a broadened boson peak. However, for a weak-coupling model with the boson peak in the eV range, the interaction causes a broadening in the boson peak that is comparable to or larger than the energy of the peak.

Combined search for the Standard Model Higgs boson using up to 4.9 fb$^{-1}$ of pp collision data at $\\sqrt{s}$ = 7 TeV with the ATLAS detector at the LHC  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

A combined search for the Standard Model Higgs boson with the ATLAS experiment at the LHC using datasets corresponding to integrated luminosities from 1.04 fb-1 to 4.9 fb-1 of pp collisions collected at sqrt(s) = 7 TeV is presented. The Higgs boson mass ranges 112.9-115.5 GeV, 131-238 GeV and 251-466 GeV are excluded at the 95% confidence level (CL), while the range 124-519 GeV is expected to be excluded in the absence of a signal. An excess of events is observed around mH ~ 126 GeV with a local significance of 3.5 standard deviations (sigma). The local significance of H -> gamma gamma, H -> ZZ(*) -> lll'l' and H -> WW(*) -> lvl'v, the three most sensitive channels in this mass range, are 2.8 sigma, 2.1 sigma and 1.4 sigma, respectively. The global probability for the background to produce such a fluctuation anywhere in the explored Higgs boson mass range 110-600 GeV is estimated to be ~1.4% or, equivalently 2.2 sigma.

LHC constraints on gauge boson couplings to dark matter  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Collider searches for energetic particles recoiling against missing transverse energy allow to place strong bounds on the interactions between dark matter (DM) and standard model particles. In this article we update and extend LHC constraints on effective dimension-7 operators involving DM and electroweak gauge bosons. A concise comparison of the sensitivity of the mono-photon, mono-W, mono-Z, mono-W/Z, invisible Higgs-boson decays in the vector boson fusion mode and the mono-jet channel is presented. Depending on the parameter choices, either the mono-photon or the mono-jet data provide the most stringent bounds at the moment. We furthermore explore the potential of improving the current 8 TeV limits at 14 TeV. Future strategies capable of disentangling the effects of the different effective operators involving electroweak gauge bosons are discussed as well.

Thermal gauge boson masses of the electroweak theory in the broken phase  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Thermal effects in the broken phase of the electroweak theory are studied in the strongly interacting Higgs boson limit. In that limit and at the tree level the bosonic sector of the theory is a gauged non-linear sigma model. The associated one-loop thermal effective action for soft fields is then computed by using the background field method together with the Stueckelberg formalism. This effective action describes thermal corrections to the masses of the gauge bosons W, Z and the photon. It is the proper generalization of the hard thermal effective action of a Yang-Mills theory when there is a Higgs mechanism for a heavy Higgs particle.

Inferring the nature of the boson at 125-126 GeV  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The presence of a bosonic resonance near 125 GeV has been firmly established at the Large Hadron Collider. Understanding the exact nature of this boson is a priority. The task now is to verify whether the boson is indeed the scalar Higgs as proposed in the Standard Model of particle physics, or something more esoteric as proposed in the plethora of extensions to the Standard Model. This requires a verification that the boson is a $J^{PC}=0^{++}$ state with couplings precisely as predicted by the Standard Model. Since a non Standard Model boson can in some cases mimic the Standard Model Higgs in its couplings to gauge bosons, it is essential to rule out any anomalous behavior in its gauge couplings. We present a step by step methodology to determine the properties of this resonance without making any assumptions about its couplings. We present the analysis in terms of uni-angular distributions which lead to angular asymmetries that allow for the extraction of the couplings of the 125-126 GeV resonance to Z bosons. We show analytically and numerically, that these asymmetries can unambiguously confirm whether the new boson is indeed the Standard Model Higgs boson.

Weak Boson Emission in Hadron Collider Processes  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The O(alpha) virtual weak radiative corrections to many hadron collider processes are known to become large and negative at high energies, due to the appearance of Sudakov-like logarithms. At the same order in perturbation theory, weak boson emission diagrams contribute. Since the W and Z bosons are massive, the O(alpha) virtual weak radiative corrections and the contributions from weak boson emission are separately finite. Thus, unlike in QED or QCD calculations, there is no technical reason for including gauge boson emission diagrams in calculations of electroweak radiative corrections. In most calculations of the O(alpha) electroweak radiative corrections, weak boson emission diagrams are therefore not taken into account. Another reason for not including these diagrams is that they lead to final states which differ from that of the original process. However, in experiment, one usually considers partially inclusive final states. Weak boson emission diagrams thus should be included in calculations of electroweak radiative corrections. In this paper, I examine the role of weak boson emission in those processes at the Fermilab Tevatron and the CERN LHC for which the one-loop electroweak radiative corrections are known to become large at high energies (inclusive jet, isolated photon, Z+1 jet, Drell-Yan, di-boson, t-bar t, and single top production). In general, I find that the cross section for weak boson emission is substantial at high energies and that weak boson emission and the O(alpha) virtual weak radiative corrections partially cancel.

On extreme Bosonic linear channels  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The set of all channels with fixed input and output is convex. We first give a convenient formulation of necessary and sufficient condition for a channel to be extreme point of this set in terms of complementary channel, a notion of big importance in quantum information theory. This formulation is based on the general approach to extremality of completely positive maps in an operator algebra due to Arveson. We then apply this formulation to prove the main result of this note: under certain nondegeneracy conditions, purity of the environment is necessary and sufficient for extremality of Bosonic linear (quasi-free) channel. It follows that Gaussian channel between finite-mode Bosonic systems is extreme if and only if it has minimal noise.

Probing anomalous gauge boson couplings at LEP  

SciTech Connect

We bound anomalous gauge boson couplings using LEP data for the Z {yields} {bar {integral}}{integral} partial widths. We use an effective field theory formalism to compute the one-loop corrections resulting from non-standard model three and four gauge boson vertices. We find that measurements at LEP constrain the three gauge boson couplings at a level comparable to that obtainable at LEPII.

Search for a Higgs boson decaying into a b-quark pair and produced in association with b quarks in proton–proton collisions at 7 TeV  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract A search for a neutral Higgs boson decaying to a pair of b quarks, and produced in association with at least one additional b quark, is presented. Multijet final states with three jets identified as originating from b quarks, at least one of which may include a non-isolated muon, are studied. The data used in this analysis correspond to an integrated luminosity of 2.7–4.8 fb?1, collected by the CMS experiment in proton–proton collisions at the LHC at a center-of-mass energy of 7 TeV. This search is particularly sensitive to Higgs bosons in scenarios of the Minimal Supersymmetric Model (MSSM) with large values of tan ?. No excess over the predicted background from standard model processes is observed. Stringent upper limits on cross section times branching fraction are derived and interpreted as bounds in the MSSM tan ? and m A parameter-space. Observed 95% confidence level upper limits reach as low as tan ? ? 18 for M A ? 100   GeV .

Decoherence of spin-deformed bosonic model  

SciTech Connect

The decoherence rate and some parameters affecting it are investigated for the generalized spin-boson model. We consider the spin-bosonic model when the bosonic environment is modeled by the deformed harmonic oscillators. We show that the state of the environment approaches a non-linear coherent state. Then, we obtain the decoherence rate of a two-level system which is in contact with a deformed bosonic environment which is either in thermal equilibrium or in the ground state. By using some recent realization of f-deformed oscillators, we show that some physical parameters strongly affect the decoherence rate of a two-level system. -- Highlights: •Decoherence of the generalized spin-boson model is considered. •In this model the environment consists of f-oscillators. •Via the interaction, the state of the environment approaches non-linear coherent states. •Effective parameters on decoherence are considered.

NLO Vector Boson Production With Light Jets  

SciTech Connect

In this contribution we present recent progress in the computation of next-to-leading order (NLO) QCD corrections for the production of an electroweak vector boson in association with jets at hadron colliders. We focus on results obtained using the virtual matrix element library BlackHat in conjunction with SHERPA, focusing on results relevant to understanding the background to top production. The production of a vector boson in association with several jets at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is an important background for other Standard Model processes as well as new physics signals. In particular, the production of a W boson in association with many jets is an important background for processes involving one or more top quarks. Precise predictions for the backgrounds are crucial to measurement of top-quark processes. Vector boson production in association with multiple jets is also a very important background for many SUSY searches, as it mimics the signatures of many typical decay chains. Here we will discuss how polarization information can be used as an additional handle to differentiate top pair production from 'prompt' W-boson production. More generally, ratios of observables, for example for events containing a W boson versus those containing a Z boson, are expected to be better-behaved as many uncertainties cancel in such ratios. Precise calculation of ratios, along with measurement of one of the two processes in the ratio, can be used in data-driven techniques for estimating backgrounds.

Vector and Scalar Bosons at DØ and ATLAS  

SciTech Connect

Vector Boson Fusion (VBF) has never been measured in hadron collisions, but it is one of the most sensitive modes for low mass Standard Model Higgs production at ATLAS. The objective of this proposal is to measure VBF production of W and Z bosons at the DØ Experiment taking place at the Tevatron Collider near Chicago, Illinois, and at the ATLAS Experiment, running at the Large Hadron Collider in Geneva, Switzerland. The framework developed in these measurements will be used to discover and study the Higgs Boson produced through the same mechanism (VBF) at ATLAS. The 10 f b?1 dataset recently collected by the DØ experiment provides a unique opportunity to observe evidence of VBF production of W Bosons, which will provide the required theoretical knowledge - VBF cross sections - and experimental knowledge - tuning of measurement techniques - on which to base the VBF measurements at the LHC. At the time of this writing, the ATLAS experiment has recorded 5 fb?1 of data at ?s = 7 TeV, and expects to collect at least another 5 in 2012. Assuming Standard Model cross sections, this dataset will allow for the observation of VBF production of W, Z and Higgs bosons. The major challenges for the first observation of VBF interactions are: developing highly optimized forward jet identification algorithms, and accurately modeling both rates and kinematics of background processes. With the research program outlined in this grant proposal, I plan to address each of these areas, paving the way for VBF observation. The concentration on VBF production for the duration of this grant will be at ATLAS where the anticipated high pileup rates necessitates a cleaner signal. My past experience with forward jet identification at the ZEUS experiment, and with W+(n)Jets measurements at DØ , puts me in a unique position to lead this effort. The proposed program will have a dual focus: on DØ where the VBF analysis effort is mature and efforts of a postdoc will be required to bring the VBF W analysis to a paper, and at ATLAS where a graduate student will begin the effort. I therefore request funding for a student and a postdoc, as well as summer support for myself, for the four year duration of the grant proposal. I also request travel funds to facilitate interactions with my group, presentation at conferences, and a modest amount of money to purchase computing resources.

Optimal unitary dilation for bosonic Gaussian channels  

SciTech Connect

A general quantum channel can be represented in terms of a unitary interaction between the information-carrying system and a noisy environment. In this paper the minimal number of quantum Gaussian environmental modes required to provide a unitary dilation of a multimode bosonic Gaussian channel is analyzed for both pure and mixed environments. We compute this quantity in the case of pure environment corresponding to the Stinespring representation and give an improved estimate in the case of mixed environment. The computations rely, on one hand, on the properties of the generalized Choi-Jamiolkowski state and, on the other hand, on an explicit construction of the minimal dilation for arbitrary bosonic Gaussian channel. These results introduce a new quantity reflecting ''noisiness'' of bosonic Gaussian channels and can be applied to address some issues concerning transmission of information in continuous variables systems.

Measurement of sigma(ppbar->Z) Br(Z->tau+tau-) and search for Higgs bosons decaying to tau+tau- at s**(1/2) = 1.96 TeV  

SciTech Connect

The resonant production of tau-lepton pairs is as interesting for the study of Standard Model (SM) physics as the production of lighter leptons pairs. For new phenomena, such as Higgs boson production or in case new particles beyond the SM would arise, the detection of (resonant) pairs of tau leptons becomes much more interesting. This is due to the fact that tau leptons are much heavier than the other leptons, which increases the chance that these new phenomena would be observed first in this channel. Unfortunately their clean detection is far more difficult than that of muons or electrons. The cross section times branching ratio {sigma}{center_dot} Br for the process p{bar p} {yields} Z {yields} {tau}{sup +}{tau}{sup -} was measured at {radical}s = 1.96 GeV using 1.0 fb{sup -1} of data collected by the D0 experiment. This measurement was performed in the channel in which one of the tau leptons decays to a muon and neutrinos, while the other decays either hadronically or to an electron and neutrinos. A set of 1511 events, of which about 20% estimated background, passed all selection criteria. The trigger and muon reconstruction efficiencies, as well as the efficiency for track reconstruction were obtained from data using the 'tag and probe' method on Z {yields} {mu}{sup +}{mu}{sup -} events. The multijet background was estimated from the sample of events which passed all selection criteria but in which the muon and the tau candidate had the same charge. The W {yields} {mu}{nu} + jets background was modeled by Monte Carlo simulations, but normalized to data. All the other backgrounds, as well as the efficiency for Z {yields} {tau}{sup +}{tau}{sup -} events were estimated using simulated events normalized to the theoretical calculations of cross sections at next-to-leading order or next-to-next-to-leading order. The energy of the tau candidates was corrected for the estimated response of the charged pions in the calorimeter, which is of the order 50-80%. Since the charged pion response in data was not well reproduced by the default simulation of hadronic interactions (Geisha), a different simulation (gCALOR) was used to obtain an estimated charged pion response consistent with the one measured in data. This tau energy correction method makes use of the superior resolution of the track momentum measurement compared to the resolution of the tau candidate energy as measured by the calorimeter, which leads to a better data--simulation agreement and a decrease of 10% in the resolution of the visible mass peak. The result of this measurement is {sigma}(p{bar p} {yields} Z) {center_dot} Br(Z {yields} {tau}{sup +}{tau}{sup -}) = 240 {+-} 8(stat) {+-} 12(syst) {+-} 15(lumi) pb, in good agreement with the theoretical predictions of 241.6{sub -3.2}{sup +3.6} pb [79] or 251.9{sub -12}{sup +5.1} pb [93-95], as well as with other measurements performed by the D0 and CDF experiments in all channels in which the Z boson decays leptonically [96-100]. This is the most precise Z boson cross section measurement to date performed in the tau lepton channel at hadron colliders. The analysis demonstrates the ability of the D0 experiment to identify tau leptons decaying hadronically with good efficiency and high purity, a challenging task in p{bar p} collisions where the number of jets resembling tau leptons is very high. This achievement forms a solid basis for other analyses using hadronic tau lepton decays, such as the search for the Higgs boson decaying into tau-lepton pairs, which was performed for the last part of this thesis.

Maximum entanglement in squeezed boson and fermion states  

SciTech Connect

A class of squeezed boson and fermion states is studied with particular emphasis on the nature of entanglement. We first investigate the case of bosons, considering two-mode squeezed states. Then we construct the fermion version to show that such states are maximum entangled, for both bosons and fermions. To achieve these results, we demonstrate some relations involving squeezed boson states. The generalization to the case of fermions is made by using Grassmann variables.

After a careful study of the backgrounds and how to extract them from the data, we show that the process pp?jj?l+l- is potentially the most sensitive to deviations from the standard model, improving the sensitivity to anomalous couplings by up to a factor of 104 (102) with respect to the present direct (indirect) limits.

Measurements of Vector Bosons Produced in Association with Jets  

SciTech Connect

The latest D0 and CDF measurements of the W + jets and Z/{gamma}* + jets processes are described, along with a discussion of the comparisons that have been made to LO and NLO perturbative QCD predictions. The direct production of W{sup {+-}}/Z bosons in association with jets is a process of crucial importance at hadron collider experiments. The presence of a vector boson in the hard scatter means that these interactions occur at a scale that should make perturbative QCD applicable, and thus it is an excellent channel to test such predictions. Furthermore, many of the potential discovery channels for the Higgs boson and beyond standard model processes share a final state signature with the W{sup {+-}}/Z + jets process. It is thus vital for the success of existing and future hadron collider experiments that this process is understood, and recently there has been a huge amount of work put into the modeling of this process, with the appearance of many new Monte Carlo generators that are already widely used at both the Tevatron and LHC. In Sections 2 and 3 the latest W + jets and Z/{gamma}* + jets measurements from the Tevatron are presented, and in Section 4 we discuss the results and implications of some of the theory comparisons that have thus far been made.

We discuss the propagation of bosons (scalars, gauge fields and gravitons) at high energy in the context of the spectral action. Using heat kernel techniques, we find that in the high-momentum limit the quadratic part of the action does not contain positive powers of the derivatives. We interpret this as the fact that the two point Green functions vanish for nearby points, where the proximity scale is given by the inverse of the cutoff.

Quantum dynamics in the bosonic Josephson junction

We employ a semiclassical picture to study dynamics in a bosonic Josephson junction with various initial conditions. Phase diffusion of coherent preparations in the Josephson regime is shown to depend on the initial relative phase between the two condensates. For initially incoherent condensates, we find a universal value for the buildup of coherence in the Josephson regime. In addition, we contrast two seemingly similar on-separatrix coherent preparations, finding striking differences in their convergence to classicality as the number of particles increases.

Searching for Lee-Wick Gauge Bosons at the LHC  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

In an extension of the Standard Model(SM) based on the ideas of Lee and Wick, Grinstein, O'Connell and Wise have found an interesting way to remove the usual quadratically divergent contributions to the Higgs mass induced by radiative corrections. Phenomenologically, the model predicts the existence of Terascale, negative-norm copies of the usual SM fields with rather unique properties: ghost-like propagators and negative decay widths, but with otherwise SM-like couplings. The model is both unitary and causal on macroscopic scales. In this paper we examine whether or not such states with these unusual properties can be uniquely identified as such at the LHC. We find that in the extended strong and electroweak gauge boson sector of the model, which is the simplest one to analyze, such an identification can be rather difficult. Observation of heavy gluon-like resonances in the dijet channel offers the best hope for this identification.

The inner boundary of the compact shells is singular, as well, but it is, at the same time, a Killing horizon. These singular, compact shells therefore resemble black holes.

Quantum Walk of Two Interacting Bosons  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We study the effect of interactions on the bosonic two-particle quantum walk and its corresponding spatial correlations. The combined effect of interactions and Hanbury-Brown Twiss interference results in unique spatial correlations which depend on the strength of the interaction, but not on its sign. The results are explained in light of the two-particle spectrum and the physics of attractively and repulsively bound pairs. We experimentally measure the weak interaction limit of these effects in nonlinear photonic lattices. Finally, we discuss an experimental approach to observe the strong interaction limit using single atoms in optical lattices.

Studies of Gauge Boson Production with a gamma/gamma-collider at TESLA  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

In absence of the Standard Model Higgs boson the interaction among the gauge bosons becomes strong at high energies and influences the couplings between them. Each trilinear and quartic gauge boson vertex is characterised by a set of couplings which are expected to deviate from their Standard Model values already at energies lower than the energy scale of the New Physics.The precise measurement of gauge boson couplings can provide clues to the mechanism of the electroweak symmetry breaking and their anomalous values can be a sign of a New Physics effect beyond the Standard Model. The estimated precisions of the trilinear gauge boson coupling (TGC) measurements at a photon collider are about one to two orders of magnitude higher than at LEP and Tevatron providing a measurement highly sensitive to the physics beyond the Standard Model. The optimisation of the forward region of the photon collider detector brings the amount of the low-energy background to the manageable level providing a clean environment for the TGC measurements at a photon collider with estimated precisions.

TOPICAL REVIEW: General relativistic boson stars  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

There is accumulating evidence that (fundamental) scalar fields may exist in Nature. The gravitational collapse of such a boson cloud would lead to a boson star (BS) as a new type of a compact object. Similarly as for white dwarfs and neutron stars, there exists a limiting mass, below which a BS is stable against complete gravitational collapse to a black hole. According to the form of the self-interaction of the basic constituents and the spacetime symmetry, we can distinguish mini-, axidilaton, soliton, charged, oscillating and rotating BSs. Their compactness prevents a Newtonian approximation, however, modifications of general relativity, as in the case of Jordan-Brans-Dicke theory as a low energy limit of strings, would provide them with gravitational memory. In general, a BS is a compact, completely regular configuration with structured layers due to the anisotropy of scalar matter, an exponentially decreasing 'halo', a critical mass inversely proportional to constituent mass, an effective radius, and a large particle number. Due to the Heisenberg principle, there exists a completely stable branch, and as a coherent state, it allows for rotating solutions with quantised angular momentum. In this review, we concentrate on the fascinating possibilities of detecting the various subtypes of (excited) BSs: Possible signals include gravitational redshift and (micro-)lensing, emission of gravitational waves, or, in the case of a giant BS, its dark matter contribution to the rotation curves of galactic halos.

Z-boson as "the standard candle" for high precision W-boson physics at LHC  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

In this paper we propose a strategy for measuring the inclusive W-boson production processes at LHC. This strategy exploits simultaneously the unique flexibility of the LHC collider in running variable beam particle species at variable beam energies, and the configuration flexibility of the LHC detectors. We propose their concrete settings for a precision measurement of the Standard Model parameters. These dedicated settings optimise the use of the Z boson and Drell-Yan pair production processes as ``the standard reference candles''. The presented strategy allows to factorise and to directly measure those of the QCD effects which affect differently the W and Z production processes. It reduces to a level of 10^{-4} the impact of uncertainties in the partonic distribution functions (PDFs) and in the transverse momentum of the quarks on the measurement precision. Last but not the least, it reduces by a factor of 10 an impact of systematic measurement errors, such as the energy scale and the measurement resolution, on the W-boson production observables.

Exergy of boson and fermion fluxes  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Particles with zero and non-zero rest mass are considered in both the classical and ultra-relativistic limits. Relationships that may be used for both fermions and bosons are derived. The exergy flux of free particles involves an efficiency-like factor affecting the energy flux. This factor contains the ambient temperature and the effective particle flux temperature and it is generally different from both the usual Carnot factor and the Petela factor appearing in the exergy of blackbody radiation fluxes, respectively. Some particular cases considered here show that free Fermi particles carry less available work than Bose particles and that the classical approximation yields higher values of the efficiency-like factors than the ultra-relativistic assumption.

The optimal unitary dilation for bosonic Gaussian channels  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

A generic quantum channel can be represented in terms of a unitary interaction between the information-carrying system and a noisy environment. Here, the minimal number of quantum Gaussian environmental modes required to provide a unitary dilation of a multi-mode bosonic Gaussian channel is analyzed both for mixed and pure environment corresponding to the Stinespring representation. In particular, for the case of pure environment we compute this quantity and present an explicit unitary dilation for arbitrary bosonic Gaussian channel. These results considerably simplify the characterization of these continuous-variable maps and can be applied to address some open issues concerning the transmission of information encoded in bosonic systems.

Interacting boson models for N{approx}Z nuclei  

SciTech Connect

This contribution discusses the use of boson models in the description of N{approx}Z nuclei. A brief review is given of earlier attempts, initiated by Elliott and co-workers, to extend the interacting boson model of Arima and Iachello by the inclusion of neutron-proton s and d bosons with T = 1 (IBM-3) as well as T = 0 (IBM-4). It is argued that for the N{approx}Z nuclei that are currently studied experimentally, a different approach is needed which invokes aligned neutron-proton pairs with angular momentum J = 2j and isospin T = 0. This claim is supported by an analysis of shell-model wave functions in terms of pair states. Results of this alternative version of the interacting boson model are compared with shell-model calculations in the 1g{sub 9/2} shell.

Final Fate of Subcritical Evolutions of Boson Stars  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We present results from a study of Type I critical phenomena in the dynamics of general relativistic boson stars in spherical symmetry. The boson stars are modelled with a minimally coupled, massive complex field (with no explicit self-interaction), and are driven to the threshold of black hole formation via their gravitational interaction with an initially imploding pulse of massless scalar field. Using a distinct coordinate system, we reproduce previous results [1,2], including the scaling of the lifetime of near-critical configurations, as well as the fact that such configurations are well described as perturbed, one-mode-unstable boson stars. In addition, we make a detailed study of the long-time evolution of marginally subcritical configurations. Contrary to previous claims [1,2], we find that the end state in such cases does not involve dispersal of the bulk of the boson star field to large radial distances, but instead can be generically described by a stable boson star executing large amplitude oscillations. Furthermore we show that these oscillations can be largely identified as excitations of the fundamental mode associated with the final boson star, as computed in perturbation theory.

Bilepton gauge boson contribution to the static electromagnetic properties of the W boson in the minimal 3-3-1 model  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

We present a complete calculation of the singly and doubly charged gauge bosons (bileptons) contribution to the static properties of the W boson in the framework of the minimal 3-3-1 model, which accommodates the bileptons in an SUL(2) doublet. A nonlinear R? gauge is used and a slightly modified version of the Passarino-Veltman reduction scheme is employed since the Gram determinant vanishes. It is found that the bilepton contribution is of the same order of magnitude as those arising from other weakly coupled renormalizable theories, such as the two-Higgs doublet model and supersymmetry. The heavy-mass limit is explored and the nontrivial decoupling properties of bileptons are discussed. Although there is a close resemblance with the contribution of an SUL(2) fermion doublet, in the case of the bilepton doublet the decoupling theorem remains valid. As a by product, we present a detailed study of the trilinear and the quartic vertices involving the bileptons and the standard model gauge bosons.

Light bosons and photospheric solutions to the solar abundance problem  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

It is well known that current spectroscopic determinations of the chemical composition of the Sun are starkly at odds with the metallicity implied by helioseismology. We propose that the discrepancy may be due to conversion of photons to a new light boson in the solar photosphere. We investigate the impact of particles with axion-like interactions with the photon on the inferred photospheric abundances. Conversion of photons into new light bosons can in principle easily produce the +0.2 dex change in derived abundances required to reconcile spectroscopic and helioseismological determinations of the solar metallicity. We show that this is however not possible for any of the presently-allowed parameter space of either the QCD axion or a standard axion-like particle. We speculate that other models involving photon-boson mixing, such as hidden photons, might prove more successful.

A braided monoidal category for free super-bosons  

SciTech Connect

The chiral conformal field theory of free super-bosons is generated by weight one currents whose mode algebra is the affinisation of an abelian Lie super-algebra h with non-degenerate super-symmetric pairing. The mode algebras of a single free boson and of a single pair of symplectic fermions arise for even|odd dimension 1|0 and 0|2 of h, respectively. In this paper, the representations of the untwisted mode algebra of free super-bosons are equipped with a tensor product, a braiding, and an associator. In the symplectic fermion case, i.e., if h is purely odd, the braided monoidal structure is extended to representations of the Z/2Z-twisted mode algebra. The tensor product is obtained by computing spaces of vertex operators. The braiding and associator are determined by explicit calculations from three- and four-point conformal blocks.

Detecting the Amplitude Mode of Strongly Interacting Lattice Bosons by Bragg Scattering  

SciTech Connect

We report the first detection of the Higgs-type amplitude mode using Bragg spectroscopy in a strongly interacting condensate of ultracold atoms in an optical lattice. By the comparison of our experimental data with a spatially resolved, time-dependent bosonic Gutzwiller calculation, we obtain good quantitative agreement. This allows for a clear identification of the amplitude mode, showing that it can be detected with full momentum resolution by going beyond the linear response regime. A systematic shift of the sound and amplitude modes' resonance frequencies due to the finite Bragg beam intensity is observed.

Exact Quantum Dynamics of a Bosonic Josephson Junction

The quantum dynamics of a one-dimensional bosonic Josephson junction is studied by solving the time-dependent many-boson Schroedinger equation numerically exactly. Already for weak interparticle interactions and on short time scales, the commonly employed mean-field and many-body methods are found to deviate substantially from the exact dynamics. The system exhibits rich many-body dynamics such as enhanced tunneling and a novel equilibration phenomenon of the junction depending on the interaction, which is attributed to a quick loss of coherence.

PDF uncertainties at large x and gauge boson production  

SciTech Connect

I discuss how global QCD fits of parton distribution functions can make the somewhat separated fields of high-energy particle physics and lower energy hadronic and nuclear physics interact to the benefit of both. In particular, I will argue that large rapidity gauge boson production at the Tevatron and the LHC has the highest short-term potential to constrain the theoretical nuclear corrections to DIS data on deuteron targets necessary for up/down flavor separation. This in turn can considerably reduce the PDF uncertainty on cross section calculations of heavy mass particles such as W' and Z' bosons.

In two-dimensional noncommutive space for the case of both position - position and momentum - momentum noncommuting, the consistent deformed bosonic algebra at the non-perturbation level described by the deformed annihilation and creation operators is investigated.

A Fock space is found, in which all calculations can be similarly developed as if in commutative space and all effects of spatial noncommutativity are simply represented by parameters.

Nonlinear feedback effects in coupled boson-fermion systems  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

We address ourselves to a class of systems composed of two coupled subsystems without any intrasubsystem interaction: itinerant fermions and localized bosons on a lattice. Switching on an interaction between the two subsystems leads to feedback effects which result in a rich dynamical structure in both of them. Such feedback features are studied on the basis of the flow equation technique—an infinite series of infinitesimal unitary transformations—which leads to a gradual elimination of the intersubsystem interaction. As a result the two subsystems get decoupled but their renormalized kinetic energies become mutually dependent on each other. Choosing for the intersubsystem interaction a charge exchange term,—the boson-fermion model—the initially localized bosons acquire itinerancy through their dependence on the renormalized fermion dispersion. This latter evolves from a free particle dispersion into one showing a pseudogap structure near the chemical potential. Upon lowering the temperature both subsystems simultaneously enter a macroscopic coherent quantum state. The bosons become superfluid, exhibiting a soundwavelike dispersion while the fermions develop a true gap in their dispersion. The essential physical features described by this technique are already contained in the renormalization of the kinetic terms in the respective Hamiltonians of the two subsystems. The extra interaction terms resulting in the process of iteration only strengthen this physics. We compare the results with previous calculations based on self-consistent perturbative approaches.

Superfluidity of Bosons in Kagome Lattices with Frustration  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

In this Letter we consider spinless bosons in a kagome lattice with nearest-neighbor hopping and on-site interaction, and the sign of hopping is inverted by insetting a ? flux in each triangle of the kagome lattice so that the lowest single particle band is perfectly flat. We show that in the high-density limit, despite the infinite degeneracy of the single particle ground states, interaction will select out the Bloch state at the K point of the Brillouin zone for boson condensation at the lowest temperature. As the temperature increases, the single-boson superfluid order can be easily destroyed, while an exotic triple-boson paired superfluid order will remain. We establish that this trion superfluid exists in a broad temperature regime until the temperature is increased to the same order of hopping and then the system turns into normal phases. Finally, we show that time-of-flight measurement of the momentum distribution and its noise correlation can be used to distinguish these three phases.

Evolution of 3D Boson Stars with Waveform Extraction  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Numerical results from a study of boson stars under nonspherical perturbations using a fully general relativistic 3D code are presented together with the analysis of emitted gravitational radiation. We have constructed a simulation code suitable for the study of scalar fields in space-times of general symmetry by bringing together components for addressing the initial value problem, the full evolution system and the detection and analysis of gravitational waves. Within a series of numerical simulations, we explicitly extract the Zerilli and Newman-Penrose scalar $\\Psi_4$ gravitational waveforms when the stars are subjected to different types of perturbations. Boson star systems have rapidly decaying nonradial quasinormal modes and thus the complete gravitational waveform could be extracted for all configurations studied. The gravitational waves emitted from stable, critical, and unstable boson star configurations are analyzed and the numerically observed quasinormal mode frequencies are compared with known linear perturbation results. The superposition of the high frequency nonspherical modes on the lower frequency spherical modes was observed in the metric oscillations when perturbations with radial and nonradial components were applied. The collapse of unstable boson stars to black holes was simulated. The apparent horizons were observed to be slightly nonspherical when initially detected and became spherical as the system evolved. The application of nonradial perturbations proportional to spherical harmonics is observed not to affect the collapse time. An unstable star subjected to a large perturbation was observed to migrate to a stable configuration.

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

A complete list of operators contributing at the lowest order to quartic neutral gauge boson couplings involving photons and Z-bosons, is presented. We show that, for the couplings we consider, the lowest order contribution is from dimension-eight operators in the case when a light Higgs is present and from dimension-six operators in the Higgsless case where electroweak symmetry is nonlinearly realized. We also show that these operators are generated by exchange of the Kaluza-Klein partners of the graviton in extra-dimensional models. We then explore the possibility of probing these couplings in the diffractive photon fusion processes pp(?????)pp and pp(???ZZ)pp at the 14 TeV LHC. We find that the ???? coupling can be probed most sensitively and values as small as 1/(1.8??TeV)4 can be measured. For the ??ZZ coupling, values as small as 1/(850??GeV)4 and 1/(1.9??TeV)2 can be probed in the light Higgs and Higgsless cases, respectively, which is an improvement by orders of magnitude over existing limits.

Heavy WIMP through Higgs portal at the LHC  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

LHC constraints on Higgs-portal WIMPs are studied. Scalar, vector and anti-symmetric tensor fields are considered. They are assumed to be heavier than a half of the Higgs boson mass. We investigate 8 TeV LHC results on signatures of the vector boson fusion, mono-jet and associated production of the $Z$ boson, which proceed via virtual exchange of the Higgs boson. We show that Higgs-portal interactions of the vector and tensor WIMPs are constrained to be less than 0.43 and 0.16, respectively, while those for the scalar are very weak. Prospects of the 14 TeV LHC are also discussed.

Invisible Higgs in large extra dimensions  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We discuss the possibility of detecting a Higgs boson in electron-positron collider experiments if large extra dimensions are realized in nature. In such a case, the Higgs boson can decay invisibly by oscillating into a graviscalar Kaluza-Klein (KK) tower. We show that the search for such a Higgs at an $e^+ e^-$ linear collider entails more complications than are usually thought of in relation to an invisibly decaying Higgs.

If his rivals were right, it would mean a cascade of modern science:the Higgs boson, a particle whose existence would explain all the others then known at powerful particle colliders, all to no avail. Now it had come down to the Large Hadron Collider, where two

(SUSY) Higgs Search at the LHC  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The discovery of the Standard Model (SM) or supersymmetric (SUSY) Higgs bosons belongs to the main endeavors of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). In this article the status of the signal and background calculations for Higgs boson production at the LHC is reviewed.

Boson effective charges for light Se, Kr, and Sr isotopes  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

A consistent analysis of E2 transition probabilities for nine neutron-deficient even-even Se, Kr, and Sr isotopes has been performed, based on previous parametrizations for these nuclei within the proton-neutron interacting-boson model, from which boson effective charges e? and e? are deduced. Two sets of effective charges are obtained, one set having e??e? for most of the nuclei studied, and the other set having e? substantially larger than e? for most of the nuclei. For both sets, e? tends to decrease with increasing neutron number, while e? is roughly constant. More information on mixed-symmetry states is needed to determine which set is valid.

Light bosons and photospheric solutions to the solar abundance problem  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

It is well known that current spectroscopic determinations of the chemical composition of the Sun are starkly at odds with the metallicity implied by helioseismology. We investigate whether the discrepancy may be due to conversion of photons to a new light boson in the solar photosphere. We examine the impact of particles with axion-like interactions with the photon on the inferred photospheric abundances, showing that resonant axion-photon conversion is not possible in the region of the solar atmosphere in which line-formation occurs. Although non-resonant conversion in the line-forming regions can in principle impact derived abundances, constraints from axion-photon conversion experiments rule out the couplings necessary for these effects to be detectable. We show that this extends to hidden photons and chameleons (which would exhibit similar phenomenological behaviour), ruling out known theories of new light bosons as photospheric solutions to the solar abundance problem.

Measurements of inclusive vector boson production from ATLAS  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The measurements of single $W$, $Z$ boson production in association with jets probes QCD in a multi-scale environment. In this paper, the latest measurements of $W$+jet and $Z$+jet production and their ratio, extending to high jet multiplicities over a large set of kinematic distributions are summarized for proton-proton collisions at a center of mass energy of 7~TeV data at the LHC. The results are compared to the latest theoretical predictions of modern Monte Carlo generators. In addition, the measurement of production of vector bosons in association with heavy flavours allows to study c and b-quark parton distribution functions (PDFs) and gluon splitting effects. Also the corresponding measurements of $W+c$ and $Z+b(b)$ are reported and compared to predictions based on various PDFs in four and five-flavour schemes.
