Higgs boson decay to mu mubar gamma  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The Higgs boson decay, H -> mu mubar gamma, is studied in the Standard Model at the tree and one-loop levels. It is shown that for Higgs boson masses above 110 GeV, the contribution to the radiative width from the one-loop level exceeds the contribution from the tree level, and for Higgs boson masses above 140 GeV, it even exceeds the contribution from the tree level decay H -> mu mubar. We also show that the contributions to the radiative decay width from the interference terms between the tree and one-loop diagrams are negligible.

One-loop Higgs boson production at the Linear Collider within the general two-Higgs-doublet model: e+e- versus gamma-gamma  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We present an updated overview on the phenomenology of one-loop Higgs boson production at Linear Colliders within the general Two-Higgs-Doublet Model (2HDM). First we report on the Higgs boson pair production, and associated Higgs-Z boson production, at O(alpha^3_{ew}) from e+e- collisions. These channels furnish cross-sections in the range of 10-100 fb for Ecm=0.5 TeV and exhibit potentially large radiative corrections (of order 50%), whose origin can be traced back to the genuine enhancement capabilities of the triple Higgs boson self-interactions. Next we consider the loop-induced production of a single Higgs boson from direct gamma-gamma scattering. We single out sizable departures from the corresponding rates in the Standard Model, which are again correlated to trademark dynamical features of the 2HDM -- namely the balance of the non-standard Higgs/gauge, Higgs/fermion and Higgs self-interactions leading to sizable (destructive) interference effects. This pattern of quantum effects is unmatched in the MSSM, and could hence provide distinctive footprints of non-supersymmetric Higgs boson physics. Both calculations are revisited within a common, brought-to-date framework and include, in particular, the most stringent bounds from unitarity and flavor physics.

Identifying heavy Higgs bosons  

SciTech Connect

Two techniques for identifying heavy Higgs bosons produced at SSC energies are discussed. In the first, the Higgs boson decays into ZZ, with one Z decaying into an e-pair or ..mu..-pair and the other into a neutrino pair. In the second, the production of the Higgs boson by WW fusion is tagged by detecting the quarks that produced the bremsstrahlung virtual W's. The associated Higgs decay is identified by one leptonic and one hadronic decay. Both methods appear capable of finding a heavy Higgs boson provided the SSC design parameters are achieved. 16 refs., 2 figs., 2 tabs.

LHC Higgs Boson searches  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

A summary of the Higgs boson searches by the ATLAS and CMS collabrations using 1 f b-1 of LHC data is presented, concentrating on the Standard Model Higgs boson. Both experiments have the sensitivity to exclude at 95% CL a Standard Model Higgs boson in most of the Higgs boson mass region between about 130 GeV and 400 GeV. The observed data allow the exclusion of a Higgs Boson of mass 155 GeV to 190 GeV and 295 GeV to 450 GeV (ATLAS) and 149 GeV to 206 GeV and 300 GeV to 440 GeV (CMS). The lower limits are not as constraining as might be expected due to an excess in both experiments of order 2-3{\\sigma} which could be related to a low mass Higgs boson or to a statistical fluctuation.

Gravity wraps Higgs boson  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

It is shown that, by rescaling the matter fields and metric tensor with appropriate powers of the Higgs field, the Higgs boson can be wholly transferred from material sector to the gravity sector in which it possesses only gravitational interactions and escapes detection in collider experiments. The Higgs boson gets buried in a scalar-tensor theory of gravity wherein it might be of relevance for Dark Energy. It is absent from the electroweak spectrum yet leptons, quarks and vector bosons possess their already known properties. The Higgs boson can contact with the matter sector via only the higher-dimensional operators suppressed by a cutoff scale.

Gravity wraps Higgs boson  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

It is shown that, under a conformal transformation with reference to the Higgs field, the Higgs boson can be completely decoupled from electroweak interactions with no apparent change in known properties of leptons, quarks and vector bosons. Higgs boson becomes part of a scalar-tensor gravity which can be relevant for Dark Energy. It interacts with matter sector via higher-dimensional terms (e.g. neutrino Majorana mass), and via the fields (of new physics) whose masses are not generated by the Higgs mechanism. Dark Matter and two-Higgs-doublet model are the simplest examples.

Gamma-ray constraints on dark-matter annihilation to electroweak gauge and Higgs bosons  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Dark-matter annihilation into electroweak gauge and Higgs bosons results in $\\gamma$-ray emission. We use observational upper limits on the fluxes of both line and continuum $\\gamma$-rays from the Milky Way Galactic Center and from Milky Way dwarf companion galaxies to set exclusion limits on allowed dark-matter masses. (Generally, Galactic Center $\\gamma$-ray line search limits from the Fermi-LAT and the H.E.S.S. experiments are most restrictive.) Our limits apply under the following assumptions: a) the dark matter species is a cold thermal relic with present mass density equal to the measured dark-matter density of the universe; b) dark-matter annihilation to standard-model particles is described in the non-relativistic limit by a single effective operator ${\\cal O} \\propto J_{DM}\\cdot J_{SM}$, where $J_{DM}$ is a standard-model singlet current consisting of dark-matter fields (Dirac fermions or complex scalars), and $J_{SM}$ is a standard-model singlet current consisting of electroweak gauge and Higgs bosons; and c) the dark-matter mass is in the range 5 GeV to 20 TeV. We consider, in turn, the 34 possible operators with mass dimension 8 or lower with non-zero s-wave annihilation channels satisfying the above assumptions. Our limits are presented in a large number of figures, one for each of the 34 possible operators; these limits can be grouped into 13 classes determined by the field content and structure of the operators. We also identify three classes of operators (coupling to the Higgs and $SU(2)_L$ gauge bosons) that can supply a 130 GeV line with the desired strength to fit the putative line signal in Fermi data, while saturating the relic density and satisfying all other indirect constraints we consider.

In the modern theory of electroweak interaction Higgs boson plays the very important role at high energies.

Study of Higgs boson production and its b-bbar decay in gamma-gamma processes in proton-nucleus collisions at the LHC  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We explore for the first time the possibilities to measure an intermediate-mass (mH = 115-140 GeV/c^2) Standard-Model Higgs boson in electromagnetic proton-lead (pPb) interactions at the CERN Large Hadron Collider (LHC) via its b-bbar decay. Using equivalent Weizsaecker-Williams photon fluxes and Higgs effective field theory for the coupling gamma-gamma --> H, we obtain a leading-order cross section of the order of 0.3 pb for exclusive Higgs production in elastic (pPb --> gamma-gamma --> p H Pb) and semielastic (pPb --> gamma-gamma --> Pb H X) processes at sqrt(s) = 8.8 TeV. After applying various kinematics cuts to remove the main backgrounds (gamma-gamma --> b-bbar and misidentified gamma-gamma-->q-qbar events), we find that a Higgs boson with mH = 120 GeV/c^2 could be observed in the b-bbar channel with a 3sigma-significance integrating 300 pb^-1 with an upgraded pA luminosity of 10^31 cm^-2s^-1. We also provide for the first time semielastic Higgs cross sections, along with elastic t-tbar cross sections, for electromagnetic pp, pA and AA collisions at the LHC.

We update phenomenological constraints on a two Higgs doublet model with lepton flavor nonconserving Yukawa couplings. We review that tan{beta} is ambiguous in such 'type III' models, and define it from the {tau} Yukawa coupling. The neutral scalars {phi} could be searched for at hadron colliders in {phi}{yields}{tau}{mu} and are constrained by the rare decay {tau}{yields}{mu}{gamma}. The Feynman diagrams for the collider process, with Higgs production via gluon fusion, are similar to the two-loop ''Barr-Zee'' diagrams, which contribute to {tau}{yields}{mu}{gamma}. Some ''tuning'' is required to obtain a collider cross section of order the standard model expectation for {sigma}(gg{yields}h{sub SM{yields}{tau}}{sup +{tau}-}), while agreeing with the current bound from {tau}{yields}{mu}{gamma}.

We compute the complete supersymmetric next-to-leading order corrections to the production of a light Higgs boson in weak boson fusion. The size of the electroweak corrections is of similar order as the next-to-leading order corrections in the Standard Model. The supersymmetric QCD corrections turn out to be significantly smaller than their electroweak counterparts. These higher--order corrections are an important ingredient to a precision analysis of the (supersymmetric) Higgs sector at the LHC, either as a known correction factor or as a contribution to the theory error.

The Higgs Boson Width is Adjustable

We show that it is possible to construct models in which the width of the Higgs boson is arbitrary- either smaller or larger than a standard model Higgs boson of the same mass. There are no new fields into which the Higgs boson decays. Instead, the coupling of the Higgs boson to the gauge bosons is adjusted. We construct and analyze weakly–coupled models with arbitrary–width Higgs bosons to investigate the phenomenology one might find in a strongly interacting model. In any such model new physics must enter at a mass scale which decreases as the Higgs boson width is adjusted away from its standard model value. In particular, if the Higgs boson is wider than the standard model Higgs boson, then interesting new physics must appear in the isospin–two channel.

Novel Higgs-to-125 GeV Higgs boson decays in the complex NMSSM  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

In the Next-to-Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (NMSSM) a variety of parameter configurations yields a Higgs boson consistent with the one observed at the LHC. Additionally, the Higgs sector of the model can contain explicit CP-violating phases even at the tree level, in contrast with the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (MSSM). In this article we present the complete one-loop Higgs boson mass matrix of the complex NMSSM in the renormalisation-group improved effective potential approach. We also present the trilinear Higgs boson self-couplings and the complete set of expressions for various partial decay widths of a generic CP-mixed Higgs boson in the model. We then analyse a very interesting phenomenological scenario wherein the decay of a relatively light pseudoscalar-like Higgs boson into ~ 125 GeV SM-like Higgs boson(s) is induced by non-zero CP-violating phases. We discuss in detail a few benchmark cases in which such a decay can contribute significantly to the production of SM-like Higgs bosons at the LHC on top of the gluon fusion process. It can thus be partially responsible for the gamma.gamma excess near 125 GeV due to the subsequent decay of the SM-like Higgs boson. Such a scenario is extremely difficult to realize in the complex MSSM and, if probed at the LHC, it could provide an indication of the non-minimal nature of supersymmetry.

Neutral Higgs Bosons in the Higgs Triplet Model with nontrivial mixing  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We revisit the neutral Higgs sector of the Higgs Triplet Model, with non-negligible mixing in the CP-even Higgs sector. We examine the possibility that one of the Higgs boson state is the particle observed at the LHC at 125 GeV, and the other is either the small LEP excess at 98 GeV; or the CMS excess at 136 GeV; or that the neutral Higgs bosons are (almost) degenerate and have both mass 125 GeV. We show that, under general considerations, an (unmixed) neutral Higgs boson cannot have an enhanced decay branching ratio into gamma gamma with respect to the Standard Model one. An enhancement is however possible for the mixed case, but only for the heavier of the two neutral Higgs bosons, and not for mass-degenerate Higgs bosons. At the same time the branching ratios into WW^*,ZZ^*, bb and tau tau are similar to the Standard Model, or reduced. We correlate the branching ratios of both Higgs states into Z gamma to those into gamma gamma for the three scenarios. The mixed neutral sector of the Higgs triplet model exhibits some features which could distinguish it from other scenarios at the LHC.

Higgs boson decays to $??$ and $Z ?$ in models with Higgs extensions  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The decays of a Higgs boson to the $\\gamma\\gamma$ and $Z\\gamma$ final states are purely quantum mechanical phenomena that are closely related to each other. We study the effects of an extended Higgs sector on the decay rates of the two modes. We propose that a simultaneous determination of them and the $ZZ$ mode is a useful way to see whether the Higgs boson recently observed by the LHC experiments is of the standard model type or could be a member of a larger Higgs sector.

Higgs Boson Searches at CDF  

SciTech Connect

Results are presented on searches for standard model and non-standard model production of a Higgs boson in pbar-p collisions at {radical}s = 1.96 TeV with the CDF II detector at the Fermilab Tevatron. Using data corresponding to 2-3.6 1/fb of integrated luminosity, searches are performed in a number of different production and decay modes. No excess in data above that expected from backgrounds is observed; therefore, we set upper limits on the production cross section times branching fraction as a function of the Higgs boson mass.

Higgs Boson Signatures of MSSM Electroweak Baryogenesis  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

Electroweak baryogenesis in the MSSM can account for the cosmological baryon asymmetry, but only with a very light scalar top and a SM-like Higgs boson. We investigate the effects of this light scalar top 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 large enough that they can potentially be tested at the Tevatron and the LHC.

Gravitational Interaction of Higgs Boson and Weak Boson Scattering

With the LHC discovery of a 125 GeV Higgs-like boson, we study gravitational interaction of the Higgs boson via the unique dimension-4 operator involving Higgs doublet and scalar curvature, $\\,\\xi H^\\dag H R\\,$, with nonminimal coupling $\\,\\xi\\,$. This Higgs portal term can be transformed away in Einstein frame and induces gauge-invariant effective interactions in the Higgs sector. We study the weak boson scattering in Einstein frame, and explicitly demonstrate the longitudinal-Goldstone boson equivalence theorem in the presence of $\\,\\xi\\,$ coupling. With these, we derive unitarity bound on the Higgs gravitational coupling $\\,\\xi\\,$ in Einstein frame, which is stronger than that inferred from the current LHC Higgs measurements. We further study $\\xi$-dependent weak boson scattering cross sections at TeV scale, and propose a new LHC probe of the Higgs-gravity coupling $\\,\\xi\\,$ via weak boson scattering experiments.

Advanced analysis techniques together with increasing data samples are bringing the sensitivity of CDF to the Higgs boson very close to the SM predictions.

Trilepton Higgs boson signal at hadron colliders  

SciTech Connect

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{r_arrow}WWW{sup ({asterisk})}{r_arrow}3l decays. A SM Higgs trilepton signal would be difficult to detect at the Fermilab Tevatron collider: with 100fb{sup {minus}1} of data, only a 3{sigma} signal above background can be achieved after cuts if 140GeV{lt}m{sub h{sub sm}{sup 0}}{lt}175GeV. Some discrimination of signal over background can be gained by analyzing the opposite sign dilepton p{sub T} distributions. At the CERN LHC with 30(100)fb{sup {minus}1} a clear discovery above the 5{sigma} level is possible for a Higgs boson mass in the range 140{endash}185(125{endash}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. {copyright} {ital 1998} {ital The American Physical Society}

Hiding the Higgs Boson with Multiple Scalars  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We consider models with multiple Higgs scalar gauge singlets and the resulting restrictions on the parameters from precision electroweak measurements. In these models, the scalar singlets mix with the SU(2) Higgs doublet, potentially leading to reduced couplings of the scalars to fermions and gauge bosons relative to the Standard Model Higgs boson couplings. Such models can make the Higgs sector difficult to explore at the LHC. We emphasize the new physics resulting from the addition of at least two scalar Higgs singlets.

Higgs Boson -- on Your Own  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

One of the highlights of 2012 in physics is related to two papers, published by the ATLAS and the CMS Collaborations, that announced the discovery of at least one new particle in pp collisions at CERN LHC. At least one of the properties of this new particle is found to be similar to that of the Higgs boson, the last and most difficult to find building block from the Standard Model of particle physics. Physics teachers are frequently approached by their media-educated students, who inquire about the properties of the Higgs boson, but physics teachers are rarely trained to teach this elusive aspect of particle physics in elementary, middle or junior high schools. In this paper I describe a card-game, that can be considered as a hands-on and easily accessible tool that allows interested teachers, students and also motivated lay-persons to play with the properties of the newly found Higgs-like particle. This new particle was detected through its decays to directly observable, final state particles. Many of these final state particles are represented in a deck of cards, that represent elementary particles, originally invented to popularize the physics of quark matter in the so-called Quark Matter Card Games. The Higgs decay properties can be utilized, playfully, in a Higgs boson search card game. The rules of this game illustrate also the need for some luck, to complement knowledge and memory, useful skills that this game also helps to develop. The paper is organized as a handout or booklet, that directly describes how to play the Higgs boson on Your Own card game.

Finding the Higgs boson: A status report  

SciTech Connect

The search for the Higgs boson of the minimal Standard Model has been a major focus of experimental high energy physics for some years now. Here, the authors review the current experimental limits and discuss the prospects for finding the Higgs boson at future accelerators, such as LEPII and the LHC. They consider only the Standard Model Higgs boson. Since a null result which definitively excluded a Higgs boson below some mass scale would be extremely important, they emphasize the case where the Higgs boson is much heavier than the relevant collider energy (or where there is no Higgs boson at all). Many of the results given here are a summary of those obtained by the DPF Committee on Long Term Planning.

We study the associated production of a very light pseudoscalar Higgs boson with a pair of charginos. The novel signature involves a pair of charged leptons from chargino decays and a pair of photons from the pseudoscalar Higgs boson decay, plus large missing energy at the LHC and ILC. The signal may help us to distinguish the NMSSM from MSSM, provided that the experiment can resolve the two photons from the decay of the pseudoscalar Higgs boson.

Lepton flavour violating Higgs Boson decays, tau --> mu gamma and B(s) --> mu+mu- in the constrained MSSM+NR with large tan beta  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Realistic predictions are made for the rates of lepton flavour violating Higgs boson decays, tau --> mu gamma, mu --> e gamma, Bs --> mu+mu-, Bs --> tau mu and tau --> 3mu, via a top-down analysis of the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model(MSSM) constrained by SU(5) unification with right-handed Neutrinos and large tan beta. The third family neutrino Yukawa coupling is chosen to be of order 1, in this way our model bares a significant resemblance to supersymmetric SO(10). In this framework the large PMNS mixings result in potentially large lepton flavour violation. Our analysis predicts tau --> mu gamma and mu --> e gamma rates in the region (10^{-8}-10^{-6}) and (10^{-15}-10^{-14}) respectively. We also show that the rates for lepton flavour violating Higgs decays can be as large as 10^{-7}. The non-decoupling nature of H --> tau mu is observed which leads to its decay rate becoming comparable to that for tau --> mu gamma for large values of m_0 and M_1/2. We also find that the present bound on Bs --> mu+mu- is an important constraint on the rate of lepton flavour violating Higgs decays. The recently measured Bs-Bsbar mixing parameter Delta Ms is also investigated.

Distinguishing a SM-like MSSM Higgs boson from SM Higgs boson at muon collider  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We explore the possibility of distinguishing the SM-like MSSM Higgs boson from the SM Higgs boson via Higgs boson pair production at future muon collider. We study the behavior of the production cross section in SM and MSSM with Higgs boson mass for various choices of MSSM parameters tan \\beta and m\\sub A. We observe that at fixed CM energy, in the SM, the total cross section increases with the increase in Higgs boson mass whereas this trend is reversed for the MSSM case. The changes that occur for the MSSM case in comparison to the SM predictions are quantified in terms of the relative percentage deviation in cross section. The observed large deviations in cross section for different choices of Higgs mass suggest that the measurements of the cross section could possibly distinguish the SM-like MSSM Higgs boson from the SM Higgs boson.

Alternative implementation of the Higgs boson  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We discuss an alternative implementation of the Higgs boson within the Standard Model which is possible if the renormalizability condition is relaxed. Namely, at energy scale $\\Lambda$ the Higgs boson interacts at tree-level only with matter fermions, while the full gauge invariance is still maintained. The interactions with the electroweak gauge bosons are induced at low energies through the radiative corrections. In this scenario the Higgs boson can be arbitrarily heavy, interacting with the Standard Model fields arbitrarily weakly. No violation of unitarity in the scattering of longitudinal electroweak bosons occurs, since they become unphysical degrees of freedom at energies $\\Lambda \\sim \\mathrm{TeV}$.

Higgs Bosons in Extra Dimensions  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

In this paper, motivated by the recent discovery of a Higgs-like boson at the LHC with a mass m_H\\simeq 126 GeV, we review different models where the hierarchy problem is solved by means of a warped extra dimension. In the Randall-Sundrum model electroweak observables provide very strong bounds on the mass of KK modes which motivates extensions to overcome this problem. Two extensions are briefly discussed. One particular extension is based on the deformation of the metric such that it strongly departs from the AdS_5 structure in the IR region while it goes asymptotically to AdS_5 in the UV brane. This model has the IR brane close to a naked metric singularity (which is outside the physical interval) characteristic of soft-walls constructions. The proximity of the singularity provides a strong wave-function renormalization for the Higgs field which suppresses the T and S parameters. The second class of considered extensions are based on the introduction of an extra gauge group in the bulk such that the custodial SU(2)_R symmetry is gauged and protects the T parameter. By further enlarging the bulk gauge symmetry one can find models where the Higgs is identified with the fifth component of gauge fields and for which the Higgs potential, along with the Higgs mass, can be dynamically determined by the Coleman-Weinberg mechanism.

Higgs boson searches at LEP2  

SciTech Connect

In this talk preliminary results of Higgs boson searches at LEP2 up to centre-of-mass energies of 183 GeV have been summarised. The main topics are searches for the Minimal Standard Model (MSM) Higgs boson and searches for neutral Higgs bosons of the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (MSSM). No indication for Higgs production has been found. The experiments have published their Higgs search results for {radical}(s)=133 GeV up to {radical}(s)=172 GeV. A preliminary combination of these results yields a mass limit on the Standard Model Higgs boson of 77.5 GeV/c{sup 2} at 95% CL. During the winter conferences 1998 first results of the 1997 data taking at {radical}(s)=183 GeV have been presented. Individual limits of the experiments on the MSM Higgs boson mass are around 85 GeV/c{sup 2}, while benchmark mass limits on the light scalar and the pseudoscalar Higgs bosons within the MSSM are between 70 GeV/c{sup 2} and 75 GeV/c{sup 2}. Other searches cover the charged Higgs boson production and Higgs decays into invisible final states.

Higgs Boson Property Shifts from Radion Mixing

We discuss how mixing between the Standard Model Higgs boson, h, and the radion of the Randall-Sundrum model can lead to significant shifts in the expected properties of the Higgs boson. In particular we show that the total and partial decay widths of the Higgs, as well as the h {yields} gg branching fraction, can be substantially altered from their SM expectations, while the remaining branching fractions are modified less than {approx}< 5% for most of the parameter space volume. Precision measurements of Higgs boson properties at a Linear Collider are shown to probe a large region of the Randall-Sundrum model parameter space.

Higgs-boson production at the Photon Collider at TESLA  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

In this thesis feasibility of the precise measurement of the Higgs-boson production cross section gamma+gamma->higgs->b+bbar at the Photon Collider at TESLA is studied in detail. The study is based on the realistic luminosity spectra simulation. The heavy quark background is estimated using the dedicated code based on NLO QCD calculations. Other background processes, which were neglected in the earlier analyses, are also studied. Also the contribution from the overlaying events, gamma+gamma->hadrons, is taken into account. The non-zero beam crossing angle and the finite size of colliding bunches are included in the event generation. The analysis is based on the full detector simulation with realistic b-tagging, and the criteria of event selection are optimized separately for each considered Higgs-boson mass. For the Standard-Model Higgs boson with mass of 120 to 160 GeV the partial width \\Gamma(h->gamma+gamma)BR(h->b+bbar) can be measured with a statistical accuracy of 2.1-7.7% after one year of the Photon Collider running. The systematic uncertainties of the measurement are estimated to be of the order of 2%. For MSSM Higgs bosons A and H, for M_A=200-350 GeV and tan(beta)=7, the statistical precision of the cross-section measurement is estimated to be 8--34%, for four considered MSSM parameters sets. As heavy neutral Higgs bosons in this scenario may not be discovered at LHC or at the first stage of the e+e- collider, an opportunity of being a discovery machine is also studied for the Photon Collider.

A Historical Profile of the Higgs Boson  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

The Higgs boson was postulated in 1964, and phenomenological studies of its possible production and decays started in the early 1970s, followed by studies of its possible productionin e{sup +} e{sup -}, {anti p}p and pp collisions, in particular. Until recently, the most sensitive searches for the Higgs boson were at LEP between 1989 and 2000, which have been complemented bysearches at the Fermilab Tevatron. The LHC has recently entered the hunt, excluding a Higgs boson over a large range of masses and revealing a tantalizing hint in the range 119 to125 GeV, and there are good prospects that the existence or otherwise of the Higgs boson will soon be established. One of the most attractive possibilities is that the Higgs bosonis accompanied by supersymmetry, though composite options have yet to be excluded. This article reviews some of the key historical developments in Higgs physics over the past half-century.

MSSM Constraints from Higgs Boson Searches  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The LEP era has brought immense progress in searches for Higgs bosons over the last 12 years which will guide searches at future colliders. The evolution of the Higgs boson mass limits are reviewed with the focus on results from general parameter scans in the Minimal Supersymmetric extension of the Standard Model (MSSM) in contrast to the so-called benchmark limits. The hint for a Standard Model (SM) Higgs boson of 115.6 GeV can also be interpreted as a preference for a Higgs boson of that mass in the MSSM. Further small data excesses allow the hypothesis that the neutral Higgs bosons of the MSSM all have masses between 90 and 116 GeV.

A Search for Dark Higgs Bosons  

SciTech Connect

Recent astrophysical and terrestrial experiments have motivated the proposal of a dark sector with GeV-scale gauge boson force carriers and new Higgs bosons. We present a search for a dark Higgs boson using 516 fb{sup -1} of data collected with the BABAR detector. We do not observe a significant signal and we set 90% confidence level upper limits on the product of the Standard Model-dark sector mixing angle and the dark sector coupling constant.

Neutral Supersymmetric Higgs Boson Searches  

SciTech Connect

In some Supersymmetric extensions of the Standard Model, including the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (MSSM), the coupling of Higgs bosons to b-quarks is enhanced. This enhancement makes the associated production of the Higgs with b-quarks an interesting search channel for the Higgs and Supersymmetry at D0. The identification of b-quarks, both online and offline, is essential to this search effort. This thesis describes the author's involvement in the development of both types of b-tagging and in the application of these techniques to the MSSM Higgs search. Work was carried out on the Level-3 trigger b-tagging algorithms. The impact parameter (IP) b-tagger was retuned and the effects of increased instantaneous luminosity on the tagger were studied. An extension of the IP-tagger to use the z-tracking information was developed. A new b-tagger using secondary vertices was developed and commissioned. A tool was developed to allow the use of large multi-run samples for trigger studies involving b-quarks. Offline, a neural network (NN) b-tagger was trained combining the existing offline lifetime based b-tagging tools. The efficiency and fake rate of the NN b-tagger were measured in data and MC. This b-tagger was internally reviewed and certified by the Collaboration and now provides the official b-tagging for all analyses using the Run IIa dataset at D0. A search was performed for neutral MSSM Higgs bosons decaying to a b{bar b} pair and produced in association with one or more b-quarks. Limits are set on the cross-section times the branching ratio for such a process. The limits were interpreted in various MSSM scenarios. This analysis uses the NN b-tagger and was the first to use this tool. The analysis also relies on triggers using the Level-3 IP b-tagging tool described previously. A likelihood discriminant was used to improve the analysis and a neural network was developed to cross-check this technique. The result of the analysis has been submitted to PRL and is comparable to the result from CDF in the same channel which uses approximately twice the integrated luminosity.

Are there really any experimental limits on a light Higgs boson  

SciTech Connect

The experimental evidence regarding a light Higgs boson is reviewed. It is shown that a light Higgs boson with almost any mass between 14 MeV/c/sup 2/ and 1 GeV/c/sup 2/ is still allowed by existing data. The only limit in this range comes from B decay data which, for sufficiently large values of the top quark mass, excludes a Higgs boson with a mass between 2m/sub ..mu../ and /approximately/700 MeV/c/sup 2/. Discussions of light Higgs boson emission in the decays of K, ..pi.., ..mu.., /tau/, /eta/', and GAMMA are also given. 29 refs., 2 figs.

Dark side of the Higgs boson.  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

Current limits from the Large Hadron Collider exclude a standard model-like Higgs mass above 150 GeV, by placing an upper bound on the Higgs production rate. We emphasize that, alternatively, the limit could be interpreted as a lower bound on the total decay width of the Higgs boson. If the invisible decay width of the Higgs is of the same order as the visible decay width, a heavy Higgs boson could be consistent with null results from current searches. We propose a method to infer the invisible decay of the Higgs by using the width of the measured h {yields} ZZ {yields} 4 {ell} line shape, and study the effect on the width extraction due to a reduced signal strength. Assuming the invisible decay product is the dark matter, we show that minimal models are tightly constrained by limits from Higgs searches at the LHC and direct detection experiments of dark matter, unless the relic density constraint is relaxed.

Probing the three-Higgs-boson coupling in heavy-quarkonium decays

We calculate (in the context of the standard model) the rate for radiative decay of a heavy-quark--antiquark /sup 3/S/sub 1/ bound state into Higgs-boson pairs, i.e., GAMMA(V-italic..-->..H-italicH-italic..gamma..). This process has contributions from diagrams containing the three-Higgs-boson self-coupling. We investigate whether that coupling is measurable in decays of the t-italic-quarkonium system or a hypothetical, heavy, fourth-generation b-italic'-quarkonium. We also briefly discuss the prospects for measuring such trilinear Higgs-boson couplings in heavy-quarkonium decays for two-Higgs-doublet theories.

Associated Higgs plus vector boson test of a fermiophobic Higgs boson  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Production in association with an electroweak vector boson V is a distinctive mode of production for a Higgs boson H without tree-level couplings to fermions, known as a fermiophobic Higgs boson. We focus on HV associated production with H decay into a pair of photons, and V into a pair of jets, with the goal of distinguishing a fermiophobic Higgs boson from the standard model Higgs boson. Performing a simulation of the signal and pertinent QCD backgrounds, and using the same event selection cuts employed by the LHC ATLAS Collaboration, we argue that existing LHC data at 7 TeV with 4.9 fb^{-1} of integrated luminosity may contain evidence for a fermiophobic Higgs boson near 125 GeV at about 1.9 standard deviation signal significance (1.9 sigma). At 8 TeV we show that associated production could yield 2.8 sigma significance with 10 fb^{-1} of data.

Standard electroweak interactions and Higgs bosons  

SciTech Connect

In the standard model, only one basic component remains to be found: the Higgs boson. The specifics of Higgs boson production and detection, with decay to t anti t and a particular t quark mass range in mind, have not been examined in detail. As such, the working group on Standard Electroweak Interactions and Higgs Bosons at this meeting decided to concentrate on Higgs boson production and detection at SSC energies in the particular case where the Higgs mass is in the range so as to make t anti t quark-antiquark pairs the dominant decay mode. The study of this case, that of the so-called intermediate mass Higgs, had already been launched in the Berkeley PSSC Workshop on Electroweak Symmetry Breaking, and was continued and extended here. The problems of t quark jet identification and detection efficiency and the manner of rejection of background (especially from b quark jets) with realistic detectors then occupied much of the attention of the group. The subject of making precise measurements of parameters in the standard model at SSC energies is briefly examined. Then we delve into the Higgs sector, with an introduction to the neutral Higgs of the standard model together with its production cross-sections in various processes and the corresponding potential backgrounds. A similar, though briefer, discussion for a charged Higgs boson (outside the Standard Model) follows. The heart of the work on identifying and reconstructing the t and then the Higgs boson in the face of backgrounds is discussed. The problems with semileptonic decays, low energy jet fragments, mass resolution, and b-t discrimination all come to the fore. We have tried to make a serious step here towards a realistic assessment of the problems entailed in pulling a signal out of the background, including a rough simulation of calorimeter-detector properties. 25 references.

Higgs boson interactions in supersymmetric theories with large tan beta

We show that radiative corrections to the Higgs potential in supersymmetric theories with large tan beta generically lead to large differences in the light Higgs boson decay branching fractions compared to those of the standard model Higgs boson. In contrast, the light Higgs boson production rates are largely unaffected. We identify W h associated production followed by Higgs boson decays to photons or to leptons via W W* as potential experimental probes of these theories.

Higgs boson masses in supersymmetric models  

SciTech Connect

Imposing supersymmetry on a Higgs potential constrains the parameters that define the potential. In supersymmetric extensions to the stranded model containing only Higgs SU(2){sub L} doublets there exist Higgs boson mass sum rules and bounds on the Higgs masses at tree level. The prescription for renormalizing these sum rules is derived. An explicit calculation is performed in the minimal supersymmetric extension to the standard model (MSSM). In this model at tree level the mass sum rule is M{sub H}{sup 2} + M{sub h}{sup 2} = M{sub A}{sup 2} + M{sub Z}{sup 2}. The results indicate that large corrections to the sum rules may arise from heavy matter fields, e.g. a heavy top quark. Squarks significantly heavier than their fermionic partners contribute large contributions when mixing occurs in the squark sector. These large corrections result from squark-Higgs couplings that become large in this limit. Contributions to individual Higgs boson masses that are quadratic in the squark masses cancel in the sum rule. Thus the naturalness constraint on Higgs boson masses is hidden in the combination of Higgs boson masses that comprise the sum rule. 39 refs., 13 figs.

HIGLU and HDECAY: Programs for Higgs Boson Production at the LHC and Higgs Boson Decay Widths  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The total cross section for Higgs boson production via the dominant gluon fusion mechanism including NLO [two-loop] QCD corrections can be calculated numerically with the program HIGLU. The QCD corrections are included for arbitrary Higgs and quark masses and increase the cross section at the LHC by up to a factor of 2. The source code HIGLU provides the evaluation of the production of the Standard Model [SM] Higgs boson as well as the neutral Higgs bosons of the 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 latter are dominated by QCD corrections and two-loop corrections to the couplings and Higgs masses of the MSSM. The program includes all decay modes with branching ratios larger than $10^{-4}$. Moreover, below-threshold decays with off-shell top quarks, gauge and Higgs bosons are implemented. In addition the program is able to calculate the branching ratios of the MSSM Higgs bosons into supersymmetric particles, which can be dominant.

hep-ph/0106116 Distinguishing a MSSM Higgs Boson from the SM Higgs Boson at a  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The decoupling properties of the Higgs sector in the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (MSSM) imply that a light CP-even Higgs boson discovered at the Tevatron or LHC may closely resemble the Standard Model (SM) Higgs boson. In this paper, we investigate how precision measurements of Higgs properties at a Linear Collider (LC) can distinguish between a CP-even Higgs boson of the MSSM and the SM Higgs boson. We review the expected theoretical behavior of the partial widths and branching ratios for decays of the neutral MSSM Higgs bosons with significant couplings to the W and Z bosons, including the leading radiative corrections to the mixing angle ? and tan ?-enhanced vertex corrections. The general expectation is that the Higgs couplings to W + W ? , ZZ, c¯c and t¯t should quickly approach their SM values for increasing CP-odd Higgs mass mA, while the couplings to b ¯ b and ? + ? ? do so more slowly. Using the expected experimental accuracy in determining SM branching ratios and partial widths, we demonstrate the sensitivity of measurements at the LC to variations in the MSSM parameters, with particular attention to the decoupling limit. For a wide range of MSSM parameters, the LC is sensitive to mA ? 600 GeV almost independently of tan ?. For large values of tan ? and some specific choices of MSSM parameters [e.g., Atµ < 0 and |At | ? |µ | ? O(1 TeV)], one of the CP-even Higgs bosons can be SM-like independent of the value of mA. In the case of large deviations from the SM, we present a procedure using branching ratio measurements to extract the supersymmetric correction to the b quark mass.

The measurement of the trilinear and quartic Higgs self-couplings is necessary for the reconstruction of the Higgs potential. This way the Higgs mechanism as the origin of electroweak symmetry breaking can be tested. The couplings are accessible in multi-Higgs production processes at the LHC. In this paper we investigate the prospects of measuring the trilinear Higgs coupling in composite Higgs models. In these models, the Higgs boson emerges as a pseudo-Goldstone boson of a strongly interacting sector, and the Higgs potential is generated by loops of the Standard Model (SM) gauge bosons and fermions. The Higgs self-couplings are modified compared to the SM and controlled by the compositeness parameter $\\xi$ in addition to the Higgs boson mass. We construct areas of sensitivity to the trilinear Higgs coupling in the relevant parameter space for various final states.

Diphoton and Z photon Decays of Higgs Boson in Gauge-Higgs Unification: A Snowmass white paper  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

In the context of gauge-Higgs unification scenario in a 5-dimensional flat spacetime, we investigate Higgs boson production via gluon fusion and its diphoton and Z gamma decay modes at the LHC. We show that the signal strength of the Higgs diphoton decay mode observed at ATLAS (and CMS), which is considerably larger than the Standard Model expectation, can be explained by a simple gauge-Higgs unification model with color-singlet bulk fermions to which a half-periodic boundary condition is assigned. The bulk fermions with mass at the TeV scale also play a crucial role in reproducing the observed Higgs boson mass of around 125 GeV. One naturally expects that the KK modes also contribute to the effective H-Z-gamma coupling. However, we show a very specific and general prediction of the gauge-Higgs unification scenario that KK-mode contributions to the H-Z-gamma coupling do not exist at the 1-loop level. If the excess of the Higgs to diphoton decay mode persists, its correlation with the Higgs to Z photon decay mode can be a clue to distinguish scenarios beyond the SM, providing a significant improvement of the sensitivity for the Higgs boson signals in the future.

Standard model Higgs boson-inflaton and dark matter  

Science Conference Proceedings (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.

Concerning the searches for Higgs bosons  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The great successes achieved by the Standard Model(SM) lead us to believe the existence of the Higgs particle. On the other hand, there are many evidences indicate that some unknown dark matter particle must exist in our universe. To identify the Higgs boson as the dark matter particle is difficult in the present SM, the challenge is: the Higgs particle is unstable while the dark matter particle is stable. A solution of this problem is proposed in this paper. We will describe a model in which almost all the predictions made by the present SM remain unchanged but leave two neutral stable Higgs particles, which may be the dark matter particle. Some possible experimental tests of Higgs particle are also suggested in this paper.

Limits on a Composite Higgs Boson  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Precision electroweak data are generally believed to constrain the Higgs boson mass to lie below approximately 190 GeV at 95% confidence level. The standard Higgs model is, however, trivial and can only be an effective field theory valid below some high energy scale characteristic of the underlying non-trivial physics. Corrections to the custodial isospin violating parameter T arising from interactions at this higher energy scale dramatically enlarge the allowed range of Higgs mass. We perform a fit to precision electroweak data and determine the region in the (m_H, Delta T) plane that is consistent with experimental results. Overlaying the estimated size of corrections to T arising from the underlying dynamics, we find that a Higgs mass up to 500 GeV is allowed. We review two composite Higgs models which can realize the possibility of a phenomenologically acceptable heavy Higgs boson. We comment on the potential of improvements in the measurements of m_t and M_W to improve constraints on composite Higgs models.

Stable Higgs Bosons - new candidate for cold dark matter -  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The Higgs boson is in the backbone of the standard model of electroweak interactions. It must exist in some form for achieving unification of interactions. In the gauge-Higgs unification scenario the Higgs boson becomes a part of the extra-dimensional component of gauge fields. The Higgs boson becomes absolutely stable in a class of the gauge-Higgs unification models, serving as a promising candidate for cold dark matter in the universe. The observed relic abundance of cold dark matter is obtained with the Higgs mass around 70 GeV. The Higgs-nucleon scattering cross section is found to be close to the recent CDMS II and XENON10 bounds in the direct detection of dark matter. In collider experiments stable Higgs bosons are produced in a pair, appearing as missing energies and momenta so that the way of detecting Higgs bosons must be altered.

Possibility of early Higgs boson discovery in nonminimal Higgs sectors  

SciTech Connect

Particle physics models with more than one Higgs boson occur in many frameworks for physics beyond the standard model, including supersymmetry, technicolor, composite Higgs, and ''little Higgs'' models. If the Higgs sector contains couplings stronger than electroweak gauge couplings, there will be heavy Higgs particles that decay to lighter Higgs particles plus heavy particles such as W, Z, and t. This motivates searches for final states involving multiple W, Z, t, and bb pairs. A two Higgs doublet model with custodial symmetry is a useful simplified model to describe many of these signals. The model can be parameterized by the physical Higgs masses and the mixing angles {alpha} and {beta}, so discovery or exclusion in this parameter space has a straightforward physical interpretation. We illustrate this with a detailed analysis of the process gg{yields}A followed by A{yields}hZ and h{yields}WW. For m{sub A}{approx_equal}330 GeV, m{sub h}{approx_equal}200 GeV we can get a 4.5{sigma} signal with 1 fb{sup -1} of integrated luminosity at the Large Hadron Collider.

Window For Higgs Boson Mass From Gauge-Higgs Unification

We consider six dimensional gauge models compactified on the orbifold T^2/Z_N (N=2,3,4,6) such that the Standard Model (SM) Higgs doublet arises from the extra-dimensional components of the gauge field. For \\Lambda \\leq 10^{19} GeV, where \\Lambda denotes the compactification scale, we obtain 114.4 GeV \\leq m_H \\leq 164 GeV for the SM Higgs boson mass. We also consider gauge-Higgs-top and gauge-Higgs-bottom Yukawa unification which respectively yield m_H = 131^{+4}_{-5} GeV and m_H = 150^{+2}_{-2} GeV for a top quark pole mass M_t =170.9^{+1.8}_{-1.8} GeV. As a special case we recover the result m_H \\leq 132 GeV previously obtained for five dimensional models.

Higgs boson mass and new physics  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We discuss the lower Higgs boson mass bounds which come from the absolute stability of the Standard Model (SM) vacuum and from the Higgs inflation, as well as the prediction of the Higgs boson mass coming from asymptotic safety of the SM. We account for the 3-loop renormalization group evolution of the couplings of the Standard Model and for a part of two-loop corrections that involve the QCD coupling alpha_s to initial conditions for their running. This is one step above the current state of the art procedure ("one-loop matching--two-loop running"). This results in reduction of the theoretical uncertainties in the Higgs boson mass bounds and predictions, associated with the Standard Model physics, to 1-2 GeV. We find that with the account of existing experimental uncertainties in the mass of the top quark and alpha_s (taken at 2sigma level) the bound reads M_H>=M_min (equality corresponds to the asymptotic safety prediction), where M_min=129+-6 GeV. We argue that the discovery of the SM Higgs boson in this range would be in agreement with the hypothesis of the absence of new energy scales between the Fermi and Planck scales, whereas the coincidence of M_H with M_min would suggest that the electroweak scale is determined by Planck physics. In order to clarify the relation between the Fermi and Planck scale a construction of an electron-positron or muon collider with a center of mass energy ~200+200 GeV (Higgs and t-quark factory) would be needed.

In the last running years, the four Large Electron Positron collider (LEP) experiments collected a combined luminosity of almost 2.5 fb ?1 at ? s ? 189 GeV. This data was searched for invisibly decaying Higgs bosons produced in association with a Z boson. The channels with electrons, muons and hadrons were investigated. None of the experiments sees hints for the production of such an invisible Higgs boson, thus each of them sets an individual lower limit on the mass at 95 % confidence level. The highest of the four limits is set at 114.1 GeV. The combination of the final results has yet to be done and will increase the reach of the search. PoS(HEP2005)329

Maximal CP violation via Higgs-boson exchange  

SciTech Connect

The unitarity of the mixing matrix of the charged Higgs bosons, and the orthogonality of the mixing matrix of the neutral Higgs bosons, are used to derive upper bounds on the values of general CP-violating expressions. The bounds are independent of the total number of Higgs fields in any specific model. They allow is to relax the usual assumption of only one Higgs boson being light. It is natural that the CP violation in the exchange of neutral Higgs bosons between bottom quarks be particularly large.

Measurements are presented of production properties and couplings of the recently discovered Higgs boson using the decays into boson pairs, H --> gamma-gamma, H --> ZZ* --> 4 leptons and H --> WW --> 2 leptons + 2 neutrinos. The results are based on the complete pp collision data sample recorded by the ATLAS experiment at the CERN Large Hadron Collider at centre-of-mass energies of 7 TeV and 8 TeV, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of about 25/fb. Evidence for Higgs boson production through vector-boson fusion is reported. Results of combined fits probing Higgs boson couplings to fermions and bosons, as well as anomalous contributions to loop-induced production and decay modes, are presented. All measurements are consistent with expectations for the Standard Model Higgs boson.

Strength of the Trilinear Higgs Boson Coupling in Technicolor Models  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We discuss the strength of the trilinear Higgs boson coupling in technicolor (or composite) models in a model independent way. The coupling is determined as a function of a very general ansatz for the technicolor self-energy, and turns out to be equal or smaller than the one of the standard model Higgs boson depending on the dynamics of the theory. With this trilinear coupling we estimate the cross section for Higgs boson pair production at the LHC. This measurement is quite improbable in the case of a heavy standard model Higgs boson, but it will be even worse when this boson is dynamically generated. Typeset using REVTEX 1 I.

Pair production of Higgs bosons associated with $Z$ boson in the left-right twin Higgs model at the ILC  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The left-right twin Higgs(LRTH) model predicts the existence of three additional Higgs bosons: one neutral Higgs $\\phi^{0}$ and a pair of charged Higgs bosons $\\phi^{\\pm}$. In this paper, we studied the production of a pair of charged and neutral Higgs bosons associated with standard model gauge boson $Z$ at the ILC, i.e., $e^{+}e^{-}\\rightarrow Z\\phi^{+}\\phi^{-}$ and $e^{+}e^{-}\\rightarrow Z\\phi^{0}\\phi^{0}$. We calculate the production rate and present the distributions of the various observables, such as, the distributions of the energy and the transverse momenta of final $Z$-boson and charged Higgs boson $\\phi^{-}$, the differential cross section of the invariant mass of charged Higgs bosons pair, the distribution of the angle between charged Higgs bosons pair and the production angle distributions of $Z$-boson and charged Higgs boson $\\phi^{-}$. Our numerical results show that, for the process $e^{+}e^{-}\\rightarrow Z\\phi^{+}\\phi^{-}$, the production rates are at the level of $10^{-1} fb$ with reasonable parameter values. For the process of $e^{+}e^{-}\\rightarrow Z\\phi^{0}\\phi^{0}$, we find that the production cross section are smaller than $6\\times 10^{-3} fb$ in most of parameter space. However, the resonance production cross section can be significantly enhanced.

For unparticle dimension d{sub U} between 1 and 2, the unitarity constraint on the Higgs boson mass can be larger than that in the standard model. Information on unparticle interaction can also be obtained.

We present the machine parameters and physics capabilities of the CLIC Higgs Experiment (CLICHE), a low-energy {gamma}{gamma} collider based on CLIC 1, the demonstration project for the higher-energy two-beam accelerator CLIC. CLICHE is conceived as a factory capable of producing around 20,000 light Higgs bosons per year. We discuss the requirements for the CLIC 1 beams and a laser backscattering system capable of producing a {gamma}{gamma} total (peak) luminosity of 2.0 (0.36) x 10{sup 34} cm{sup -2} s{sup -1} with E{sub CM}({gamma}{gamma}) 115 GeV. We show how CLICHE could be used to measure accurately the mass, {bar b}b, WW and {gamma}{gamma} decays of a light Higgs boson. We illustrate how these measurements may distinguish between the Standard Model Higgs boson and those in supersymmetric and more general two-Higgs-doublet models, complementing the measurements to be made with other accelerators. We also comment on other prospects in {gamma}{gamma} and e{sup -}{gamma} physics with CLICHE.

Multi Higgs and Vector boson production beyond the Standard Model  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

If the electroweak symmetry breaking is originated from a strongly coupled sector, as for instance in composite Higgs models, the Higgs boson couplings can deviate from their Standard Model values. In such cases, at sufficiently high energies there could occur an onset of multiple Higgs boson and longitudinally polarised electroweak gauge boson (V_L) production. We study the sensitivity to anomalous Higgs couplings in inelastic processes with 3 and 4 particles (either Higgs bosons or V_L's) in the final state. We show that, due to the more severe cancellations in the corresponding amplitudes as compared to the usual 2 to 2 processes, large enhancements with respect to the Standard Model can arise even for small modifications of the Higgs couplings. In particular, we find that triple Higgs production provides the best multiparticle channel to look for these deviations. We briefly explore the consequences of multiparticle production at the LHC.

A search has been performed for the Standard Model Higgs boson in the data collected with the ALEPH detector in 2000. An excess of 3 sigma above the background expectation is found. The observed excess is consistent with the production of the Higgs boson with a mass close to 114 GeV/c2.

More Signatures of the Intermediate Mass Higgs Boson  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We examine the potential signatures of the Higgs boson when it decays into a tau-lepton pair. We show that with the proper identification of the tau-jet, this decay mode can lead to the identification of the Higgs boson over most of the intermediate mass range (\\mW $<$ \\mH $<$ 2 \\mW).

Higgs and W boson spectrum from lattice simulations  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The spectrum of energy levels is computed for all available angular momentum and parity quantum numbers in the SU(2)-Higgs model, with parameters chosen to match experimental data from the Higgs-W boson sector of the standard model. Several multi-boson states are observed, with and without linear momentum, and all are consistent with weakly-interacting Higgs and W bosons. The creation operators used in this study are gauge-invariant so, for example, the Higgs operator is quadratic rather than linear in the Lagrangian's scalar field.

Theoretical frameworks beyond the standard model predict a rich Higgs sector with multiple charged and neutral Higgs bosons. Both the CDF II and D0 experiments at the Tevatron have analyzed 1 fb{sup -1} of p{bar p} collisions at {radical}s = 1.96TeV in search of Higgs boson production. A complete suite of results on searches for neutral, charged, and fermiophobic Higgs bosons limit the allowed production rates and constrain extended models, including the minimal supersymmetric standard model.

Effects of Radion Mixing on the Standard Model Higgs Boson  

SciTech Connect

We discuss how mixing between the Standard Model Higgs boson and the radion of the Randall-Sundrum model can lead to significant shifts in the expected properties of the Higgs boson. In particular we show that the total and partial decay widths of the Higgs, as well as the h {yields} gg branching fraction, can be substantially altered from their SM expectations, while the remaining branching fractions are modified less than about 5% for most of the parameter space volume. Precision measurements of Higgs boson properties at at a Linear Collider are shown to probe a large region of the Randall-Sundrum model parameter space.

We give a pedagogical review of Higgs boson low-energy theorems and their applications in the study of light Higgs boson interactions with mesons and baryons. In particular, it is shown how to combine the chiral Lagrangian method with the Higgs low-energy theorems to obtain predictions for the interaction of Higgs bosons and pseudoscalar mesons. Finally, we discuss the relation between the low-energy theorems and a technique which makes use of the trace of the QCD energy-momentum tensor. 35 refs.

Searches for MSSM Higgs bosons at ATLAS and CMS  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The Minimal Supersymmetric extension of the Standard Model (MSSM) predicts the existence of three neutral and two charged Higgs bosons. Searches for these MSSM Higgs bosons are presented, based on proton-proton collisions recorded in 2011 and 2012 by the ATLAS and CMS experiments at the LHC. The neutral Higgs bosons are searched through their decays into pairs of oppositely charged tau leptons. The exclusion limits at 95% confidence level are shown as a function of the $m_A$ and $\\tan\\beta$ parameters. The search for the charged Higgs bosons is based on their production through the decays of top quarks in the $t\\bar{t}$ process, $t \\to bH^+$. The Higgs bosons subsequently decay predominantly into a tau lepton and a neutrino. Upper limits are set on the branching fraction $B(t \\to bH^+)$, combining the final states with leptonic and hadronic tau decay modes.

Beyond the Standard Model Higgs Boson Searches at the Tevatron  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

The search for the Higgs boson is one of the main goals in High Energy Physics and one of the highest priorities at Run II of the Tevatron. There are many alternative Higgs boson models beyond the SM, including Supersymmetry (SUSY) and Fermiophobic Higgs bosons, which can actively be probed at the Tevatron, and in the absence of an excess constrained. The latest limits for several SUSY searches are presented in Section 2 and for the Fermiophobic Higgs boson searches in Section 3. More information on all these searches, along with the latest results, can be found on the CDF and D0 public results webpages. Results are presented for beyond the Standard Model Higgs boson searches using up to 4.2 fb{sup -1} of data from Run II at the Tevatron. No significant excess is observed in any of the channels so 95% confidence level limits are presented.

Higgs boson with a single generation in the bulk

We study Higgs boson properties in a model where three fermionic families of the Standard Model arise from a single generation in (5+1) dimensions. We demonstrate that, in spite of a non-trivial background, properties of the four-dimensional Higgs particle are almost indistinguishable from those in the Standard Model. We also argue that it is more natural to have a light Higgs boson in this model.

Discovering Higgs Bosons of the MSSM using Jet Substructure  

SciTech Connect

We present a qualitatively new approach to discover Higgs bosons of the MSSM at the LHC using jet substructure techniques applied to boosted Higgs decays. These techniques are ideally suited to the MSSM, since the lightest Higgs boson overwhelmingly decays to b{bar b} throughout the entire parameter space, while the heavier neutral Higgs bosons, if light enough to be produced in a cascade, also predominantly decay to b{bar b}. The Higgs production we consider arises from superpartner production where superpartners cascade decay into Higgs bosons. We study this mode of Higgs production for several superpartner hierarchies: m{sub {tilde q}},m{sub {tilde g}} > m{sub {tilde W}},{sub {tilde B}} > m{sub h} + {mu}; m{tilde q};m{sub {tilde q}},m{sub {tilde g}} > m{sub {tilde W}},{sub {tilde B}} > m {sub h,H,A} + {mu}; and m{sub {tilde q}},m{sub {tilde g}} > m{sub {tilde W}} > m{sub h} + {mu} with m{sub {tilde B}} {approx} {mu}. In these cascades, the Higgs bosons are boosted, with pT > 200 GeV a large fraction of the time. Since Higgs bosons appear in cascades originating from squarks and/or gluinos, the cross section for events with at least one Higgs boson can be the same order as squark/gluino production. Given 10 fb{sup -1} of 14 TeV LHC data, with m{sub {tilde q}} {approx}< 1 TeV, and one of the above superpartner mass hierarchies, our estimate of S{radical} B of the Higgs signal is sufficiently high that the b{bar b} mode can become the discovery mode of the lightest Higgs boson of the MSSM.

Resonance--Continuum Interference in Light Higgs Boson Production at a Photon Collider  

SciTech Connect

We study the effect of interference between the Standard Model Higgs boson resonance and the continuum background in the process {gamma}{gamma} {yields} H {yields} b{bar b} at a photon collider. Taking into account virtual gluon exchange between the final-state quarks, we calculate the leading corrections to the height of the resonance for the case of a light (m{sub H} < 160 GeV) Higgs boson. We find that the interference is destructive and around 0.1-0.2% of the peak height, depending on the mass of the Higgs and the scattering angle. This suppression is smaller by an order of magnitude than the anticipated experimental accuracy at a photon collider. However, the fractional suppression can be significantly larger if the Higgs coupling to b quarks is increased by physics beyond the Standard Model.

Flavor changing neutral decay effects in models with two Higgs boson doublets: Applications to LHC Physics  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

In this Thesis we have investigated some effects appearing in top quark and Higgs boson decays with flavor changing neutral currents (FCNC) in the framework of generic Two Higgs Doblet Models (2HDM) and the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (MSSM). We have applied these two extensions to the SM to see whether they can produce new FCNC effects. Introductory chapters deal with the 2HDM and the MSSM. In the next chapters we have computed the following FCNC decays: (1) the branching ratios (B) of the top quark to Higgs bosons and charm quark in the 2HDM; (2) B and number of events at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) of the Higgs bosons to top and charm quarks in the 2HDM; (3) B of the Higgs bosons to bottom and strange quarks in the MSSM; (4) cross section and number of events at the LHC of the Higgs bosons to FCNC final states involving the heavy quarks like the top and bottom quark in the MSSM (Higgs bosons = h^0, H^0, A^0). We also studied the experimental signatures that would allow discover of the nature of these Higgs bosons in the LHC. In this study we have applied the severe restrictions from observed low-energy FCNC processes like b -> s\\gamma. Our general conclusion is that the physics of the processes with flavor changing neutral currents can be very important in seeing the physics beyond the Standard Model and to disentangle the nature of the most adequate model. Experiments at the LHC can be crucial to unravel signs of FCNC physics beyond the SM.

Search for Neutral MSSM Higgs Bosons at LEP  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The four LEP collaborations, ALEPH, DELPHI, L3 and OPAL, have searched for the neutral Higgs bosons which are predicted by the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (MSSM). The data of the four collaborations are statistically combined and examined for their consistency with the background hypothesis and with a possible Higgs boson signal. The combined LEP data show no significant excess of events which would indicate the production of Higgs bosons. The search results are used to set upper bounds on the cross-sections of various Higgs-like event topologies. The results are interpreted within the MSSM in a number of "benchmark" models, including CP-conserving and CP-violating scenarios. These interpretations lead in all cases to large exclusions in the MSSM parameter space. Absolute limits are set on the parameter tanb and, in some scenarios, on the masses of neutral Higgs bosons.

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.

Study of Higgs Boson Pair Production at Linear Collider  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We study the potential of the TESLA linear collider operated at a center-of-mass energy of 500 to 1000 GeV for the measurement of the neutral Higgs boson properties within the framework of the MSSM. The process of associated Higgs boson production with subsequent decays of Higgs bosons into b-quark and tau-lepton pairs is considered. An integrated luminosity of 500 fb^{-1} is assumed at each energy. The Higgs boson masses and production cross sections are measured by reconstructing the bbbb and bb\\tau\\tau final states. The precision of these measurements is evaluated in dependence of the Higgs boson masses. Under the assumed experimental conditions a statistical accuracy ranging from 0.1 to 1.0 GeV is achievable on the Higgs boson mass. The topological cross section \\sigma(e+e- -> HA -> bbbb) can be determined with the relative precision of 1.5 - 6.6 % and cross sections \\sigma(e+e- -> HA -> bb \\tau\\tau) and \\sigma(e+e- -> HA -> \\tau\\tau bb) with precision of 4 - 30 %. Constraints on the Higgs boson widths can be set exploiting bb\\tau\\tau channel. The 5\\sigma discovery limit corresponds to the Higgs mass of around 385 GeV for the degenerate Higgs boson masses in the HA -> bbbb channel at \\sqrts = 800 GeV with integrated luminosity of 500 fb^{-1}. The potential of the Higgs mass determination for the benchmark point SPS 1a for the process e+e- -> HA -> bbbb at \\sqrt{s} = 1 TeV and luminosity 1000 fb^{-1} is investigated.

Higgs Boson Decays in the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model with Radiative Higgs Sector CP Violation  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We re–evaluate the decays of the Higgs bosons in the minimal supersymmetric standard model (MSSM) where the tree-level CP invariance of the Higgs potential is explicitly broken by the loop effects of the third–generation squarks with CP–violating soft–breaking Yukawa interactions. This study is based on the mass matrix of the neutral Higgs bosons that is valid for arbitrary values of all the relevant MSSM parameters. It extends the previous work considerably by including neutral Higgs–boson decays into virtual gauge bosons and those into top–squark pairs, by implementing squark–loop contributions to the two–gluon decay channel, and by incorporating the decays of the charged Higgs boson. The constraints from the electron electric dipole moment on the CP phases are also discussed. We find that the branching fractions of both the neutral and charged Higgs–boson decays and their total decay widths depend strongly on the CP phases of the top (and bottom) squark sectors through the loop–induced neutral Higgs boson mixing as well as the direct couplings of the neutral Higgs bosons to top squark pairs.

The $S$-wave scattering length and the effective range of the Higgs boson in Standard Model are studied using effective-field-theory approach. After incorporating the first-order electroweak correction, the short-range force between two Higgs bosons remains weakly attractive for $M_H=126$ GeV. It is interesting to find that the force range is about two order-of-magnitude larger than the Compton wavelength of the Higgs boson, almost comparable with the typical length scale of the strong interaction.

This particle could explain how known elementary particles like the electron can have mass, and also why one of the basic forces, the weak interaction, is in fact so incredibly weak. However, the Higgs boson has escaped detection so far, even at the most powerful particle accelerators.

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 nonstandard Higgs physics.

The bulk fermions also play a crucial role in reproducing the observed Higgs boson mass around 125 GeV.

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 the standard model expectation 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 $\\to b\\bar{b}$ 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.

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.

Associated production of nonstandard Higgs bosons at the LHC  

SciTech Connect

We discuss the feasibility of seeing a Higgs boson that decays to four partons through a pair of (pseudo)scalars at the LHC. We restrict our search to Higgs bosons produced in association with a W/Z boson at high transverse momentum. We argue that subjet analysis techniques are a good discriminant between such events and W/Z+jets and tt production. For light scalar masses (below 30 GeV), we find evidence that a flavor-independent search for such a nonstandard Higgs boson is plausible with 100 fb{sup -1} of data, while a Higgs decaying to heavier scalars is only likely to be visible in models where scalar decays to b quarks dominate.

Status of Higgs Boson Searches at the Tevatron  

SciTech Connect

Over the last years the Tevatron Run-II has extended several limits on Higgs boson masses and coupling which were pioneered during the LEP accelerator operation between 1989 and 2000. Higgs boson searches will also be at the forefront of research at the LHC. This review concisely discusses the experimental constraints set by the CDF and D0 collaborations in winter 2008/2009 at the beginning of the LHC era. Model-independent and model-dependent limits on Higgs boson masses and couplings have been set and interpretations are discussed both in the Standard Model and in extended models. Recently, for the first time the Tevatron excludes a SM Higgs boson mass range (160-170 GeV) beyond the LEP limit at 95% CL. The experimental sensitivities are estimated for the completion of the Tevatron program.

Search for the Standard Model Higgs Boson at LEP  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The four LEP collaborations, ALEPH, DELPHI, L3 and OPAL, have collected a total of 2461 pb-1 of e+e- collision data at centre-of-mass energies between 189 and 209 GeV. The data are used to search for the Standard Model Higgs boson. The search results of the four collaborations are combined and examined in a likelihood test for their consistency with two hypotheses: the background hypothesis and the signal plus background hypothesis. The corresponding confidences have been computed as functions of the hypothetical Higgs boson mass. A lower bound of 114.4 GeV/c2 is established, at the 95% confidence level, on the mass of the Standard Model Higgs boson. The LEP data are also used to set upper bounds on the HZZ coupling for various assumptions concerning the decay of the Higgs boson.

Search for a Light Higgs Boson at BaBar  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

We search for evidence of a light Higgs boson (A{sup 0}) in the radiative decays of the narrow {Upsilon}(3S) resonance: {Upsilon}(3S) {yields} {gamma}A{sup 0}, where A{sup 0} {yields} invisible or A{sup 0} {yields} {mu}{sup +}{mu}{sup -}. Such an object appears in extensions of the Standard Model, where a light CP-odd Higgs boson naturally couples strongly to b-quarks. We find no evidence for such processes in a sample of 122 x 106 {Upsilon}(3S) decays collected by the BABAR collaboration at the PEP-II B-factory, and set 90% C.L. upper limits on the product of the branching fractions {Beta}({Upsilon}(3S) {yields} {gamma}A{sup 0}) x {Beta}(A{sup 0} {yields} invisible) at (0.7-31) x 10{sup -6} in the mass range mA{sup 0} {le} 7.8 GeV, and on the product {Beta}({Upsilon}(3S) {yields} {gamma}A{sup 0}) x {Beta}(A{sup 0} {yields} {mu}{sup +}{mu}{sup -}) at (0.25-5.2) x 10{sup -6} in the mass range 0.212 {le} mA{sup 0} {le} 9.3GeV. We also set a limit on the dimuon branching fraction of the recently discovered {eta}{sub b} meson {Beta}({eta}{sub b} {yields} {mu}{sup +}{mu}{sup -}) < 0.8% at 90% C.L.

The D0 and CDF experiments at the Tevatron have sought the Higgs boson in data collected till 1996, and have set limits to its existence. After a major upgrade of both detectors and substantial improvements of the acceleration complex, the two experiments have restarted collecting physics quality data in early 2002. It is expected that a Standard Model Higgs boson with mass lower than 180 GeV will be either discovered or ruled out with five years of running.

Associated central exclusive production of charged Higgs bosons  

SciTech Connect

We propose central exclusive production of a charged Higgs boson in association with a W boson as a possible signature of certain types of extended Higgs sectors. We calculate the cross section and find that the rate at the LHC could be large enough to allow observation in some models with two-Higgs doublets, where the charged Higgs and at least one of the neutral scalars can be light enough. We use the two-Higgs doublet model as a prototype and consider two distinct regions of parameter space, but we also briefly discuss the prospects for the next-to-minimal supersymmetric standard model, where the charged Higgs may very well be quite light.

The Higgs boson in the Standard Model theoretical constraints and a direct search in the wh channel at the Tevatron  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

We have presented results in two different yet strongly linked aspects of Higgs boson physics. We have learned about the importance of the Higgs boson for the fate of the Standard Model, being either only a theory limited to explaining phenomena at the electroweak scale or, if the Higgs boson lies within a mass range of 130 Higgs boson as the particle giving rise to inflation in the very early Universe, if it couples non-minimally to gravity, an effect that would only become significant at very high energies. After understanding the immense meaning of proving whether the Higgs boson exists and if so, at which mass, we have presented a direct search for a Higgs boson in associated production with a W boson in a mass range 100 Higgs boson is favored regarding constraints from electroweak precision measurements. As a single analysis is not yet sensitive for an observation of the Higgs boson using 5.3 fb{sup -1} of Tevatron data, we set limits on the production cross section times branching ratio. At the Tevatron, however, we are able to combine the sensitivity of our analyses not only across channels or analyses at a single experiment but also across both experiments, namely CDF and D0. This yields to the so-called Tevatron Higgs combination which, in total, combines 129 analyses from both experiments with luminosities of up to 6.7 fb{sup -1}. The results of a previous Tevatron combination led to the first exclusion of possible Higgs boson masses since the LEP exclusion in 2001. The latest Tevatron combination from July 2010 can be seen in Fig. 111 and limits compared to the Standard Model expectation are listed in Table 23. It excludes a SM Higgs boson in the regions of 100 Higgs boson, or to even prove its existence with a meaningful significance. Fig. 112 shows a projection plot for sensitivity to the SM Higgs boson at the Tevatron as a measure of increasing luminosity. The 10 fb{sup -1} projection is a rather conservative outlook for the coming year of data taking as the Tevatron runs smoothly and the run till the end of 2011 is assured. By now, already 9 fb{sup -1} have been recorded by the two experiments. As the extrapolation plot shows, this amount of luminosity will allow to exclude the Higgs boson over a wide mass range at a 95% C.L. With the LHC at CERN now running and successfully collecting first data, it is worth looking at projections of Higgs boson sensitivity at the current center of mass energy of 7 TeV of the LHC accelerator. Fig. 113 shows a projection of a possible SM Higgs boson exclusion using 1 fb{sup -1} of LHC data collected by the ATLAS experiment. An exclusion is expected between 135 and 188 GeV at 95% C.L., combining the three decay channels H {yields} WW, H {yields} ZZ and H {yields} {gamma}{gamma}. A combination between LHC experiments would possibly yield an even broader range of excluded Higgs boson mass points. Therefore, whether at the Tevatron or the LHC, exciting times in the exclusion or possible discovery of the SM Higgs boson lie ahead.

D0 search for the Higgs boson in multijet events  

SciTech Connect

We present two searches for the Higgs boson in {radical}s = 1.96 TeV p{bar p} collisions using data taken with the D0 detector during Run II of the Fermilab Tevatron collider. The first study is a search for neutral Higgs bosons produced in association with bottom quarks. The cross sections for these processes are enhanced in many extensions of the standard model (SM), such as in its minimal supersymmetric extension at large tan {beta}. The results of our analysis agree with expectations from the SM, and we use our measurements to set upper limits on the production of neutral Higgs bosons in the mass range of 90 to 150 GeV. The second study is a search for the standard model Higgs boson produced in association with the Z boson.We study the p{bar p} {yields} ZH {yields} {nu}{bar {nu}}b{bar b} channel, which is one of the most sensitive ways to search for light Higgs bosons at the Tevatron. We select multijet events with large imbalance in transverse momentum and two b-tagged jets. Then we search for a peak in invariant mass distribution of two b-tagged jets. After subtracting the backgrounds, we set the 95% C.L. upper limits on the {sigma}(p{bar p} {yields} ZH {yields} {nu}{bar {nu}}) x BR(H {yields} b{bar b}) for Higgs masses between 105 and 135 GeV.

Standard Model Higgs Boson Combination at the Tevatron  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We present the recent results from combinations of searches for a standard model (SM) Higgs boson ($H$) by the CDF and D0 experiments at the Tevatron $p\\bar p$ collider at $\\sqrt{s}=1.96$ TeV. The data correspond to an integrated total luminosity of 8.2 (CDF) and 8.6 (D0) fb$^{-1}$. Compared to the previous Tevatron Higgs boson search combination more data have been added, additional channels have been added, and some previously used channels have been reanalyzed to gain sensitivity. No excess is observed above background expectation, and set 95% C.L. upper limits (median expected) on Higgs boson production at factors of 1.17 (1.16), 1.71 (1.16), and 0.48(0.57) times the SM predictions for Higgs bosons of mass $m_H$=115, 140, and 165 GeV/c$^2$, respectively. We exclude a standard-model Higgs boson in the mass range 156--177 GeV/c$^2$ at the 95% C.L, with an expected exclusion region 148--180 GeV/c$^2$. The absence of a Higgs boson signal also constrains some new physics such as $4^{th}$ generation models and other exotic models.

Higgs Boson Production and Decay in Little Higgs Models with T-parity  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We study Higgs boson production and decay in a certain class of Little Higgs models with T-parity in which some T-parity partners of the Standard Model (SM) fermions gain their masses through Yukawa-type couplings. We find that the Higgs boson production cross section of a 120 GeV Higgs boson at the CERN LHC via gg fusion process at one-loop level could be reduced by about 45%, 35% and 20%, as compared to its SM prediction, for a relatively low new particle mass scale f = 600, 700 and 1000 GeV, respectively. On the other hand, the weak boson fusion cross section is close to the SM value. Furthermore, the Higgs boson decay branching ratio into di-photon mode can be enhanced by about 35% in small Higgs mass region in certain case, for the total decay width of Higgs boson in the Little Higgs model is always smaller than that in the SM.

With datasets corresponding to 7.0 fb-1 (CDF) and 8.2 fb-1 (D0), the 95% C.L. upper limits on Higgs boson production is a factor of 10.5 times the SM cross section for a Higgs boson mass of 115 GeV/c^2.

Hidden sector dark matters and elusive Higgs boson(s) at the LHC  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

We consider two types of hidden sector dark matters (DM's), with and without QCD-like new strong interaction with confinement properties, and their interplays with the Standard Model (SM) Higgs boson. Assuming the hidden sector has only fermions (and gauge bosons in case of strongly interacting hidden sector), we have to introduce a real singlet scalar boson S as a messenger between the SM and the hidden sector dark matters. This singlet scalar will mix with the SM Higgs boson h, and we expect there are two Higgs-like scalar bosons H{sub 1} and H{sub 2}. Imposing all the relevant constraints from collider search bounds on Higgs boson, DM scattering cross section on proton and thermal relic density, we find that one of the two Higgs-like scalar bosons can easily escape the detections at the LHC. Recent results on the Higgs-like new boson with mass around with 125 GeV from the LHC will constrain this class of models, which is left for future study.

Search for the Standard Model Higgs Boson in associated production with w boson at the Tevatron  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

A search for the Standard Model Higgs boson in proton-antiproton collisions with center-of-mass energy 1.96 TeV at the Tevatron is presented in this dissertation. The process of interest is the associated production of W boson and Higgs boson, with the W boson decaying leptonically and the Higgs boson decaying into a pair of bottom quarks. The dataset in the analysis is accumulated by the D0 detector from April 2002 to April 2008 and corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 2.7 fb{sup -1}. The events are reconstructed and selected following the criteria of an isolated lepton, missing transverse energy and two jets. The D0 Neural Network b-jet identification algorithm is further used to discriminate b jets from light jets. A multivariate analysis combining Matrix Element and Neural Network methods is explored to improve the Higgs boson signal significance. No evidence of the Higgs boson is observed in this analysis. In consequence, an observed (expected) limit on the ratio of {sigma} (p{bar p} {yields} WH) x Br (H {yields} b{bar b}) to the Standard Model prediction is set to be 6.7 (6.4) at 95% C.L. for the Higgs boson with a mass of 115 GeV.

Hints for a nonstandard Higgs boson from the LHC  

Science Conference Proceedings (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.

In the original paper entitled, "Masses of Fundamental Particles"(arXiv:1109.3705v5, 10 Feb 2012), not only the masses of fundamental particles including the weak bosons, Higgs boson, quarks, and leptons, but also the mixing angles of quarks and those of neutrinos are all explained and/or predicted in the unified composite models of quarks and leptons successfully. In this addendum entitled, "Higgs Boson Mass in the Minimal Unified Subquark Model", it is emphasized that the Higgs boson mass is predicted to be about 130Gev in the minimal unified subquark model, which agrees well with the experimental values of 125-126GeV recently found by the ATLAS and CMS Collaborations at the LHC.

How to Determine the Probability of the Higgs Boson Detection  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The Higgs boson is the most important, though yet undiscovered ingredient of the standard model of particle physics. Its detection is therefore one of the most important goals of high energy physics that can guide future research in theoretical physics. Enormous efforts have been undertaken to prove the existence of the Higgs boson, and the physics community is excitedly awaiting the restart of the Large Hadron Collider at CERN. But how sure can we be that the Higgs exits at all? The German philosopher Immanuel Kant recommended betting at such controversial questions, and Stephen Hawking announced a $100 bet against the Higgs. But seriously, online prediction markets, which are a generalized form of betting, do provide the best possible probability estimates for future events. It is proposed that the scientific community uses this platforms for evaluation. See also an online description www.Bet-On-The-Higgs.com.

The Higgs boson resonance width from a chiral Higgs-Yukawa model on the lattice  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The Higgs boson is a central part of the electroweak theory and is crucial to generate masses for quarks, leptons and the weak gauge bosons. We use a 4-dimensional Euclidean lattice formulation of the Higgs-Yukawa sector of the electroweak model to compute physical quantities in the path integral approach which is evaluated by means of Monte Carlo simulations thus allowing for fully non perturbative calculations. The chiral symmetry of the model is incorporated by using the Neuberger overlap Dirac operator. The here considered Higgs-Yukawa model does not involve the weak gauge bosons and furthermore, only a degenerate doublet of top- and bottom quarks are incorporated. The goal of this work is to study the resonance properties of the Higgs boson and its sensitivity to the strength of the quartic self coupling.

Pseudoscalar boson and standard model-like Higgs boson productions at the LHC in the simplest little Higgs model  

SciTech Connect

In the framework of the simplest little Higgs model, we perform a comprehensive study for the pair productions of the pseudoscalar boson {eta} and standard model-like Higgs boson h at LHC, namely gg(bb){yields}{eta}{eta}, gg(qq){yields}{eta}h, and gg(bb){yields}hh. These production processes provide a way to probe the couplings between Higgs bosons. We find that the cross section of gg{yields}{eta}{eta} always dominates over that of bb{yields}{eta}{eta}. When the Higgs boson h which mediates these two processes is on-shell, their cross sections can reach several thousand fb and several hundred fb, respectively. When the intermediate state h is off-shell, those two cross sections are reduced by 2 orders of magnitude, respectively. The cross sections of gg{yields}{eta}h and qq{yields}{eta}h are about in the same order of magnitude, which can reach O(10{sup 2} fb) for a light {eta} boson. Besides, compared with the standard model prediction, the cross section of a pair of standard model-like Higgs bosons production at LHC can be enhanced sizably. Finally, we briefly discuss the observable signatures of {eta}{eta}, {eta}h, and hh at the LHC.

Higgs boson finder and mass estimator: The Higgs boson to WW to leptons decay channel at the LHC  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

We exploit the spin and kinematic correlations in the decay of a scalar boson into a pair of real or virtual W-bosons, with both W-bosons decaying leptonically, for Higgs boson discovery at 7 TeV LHC energy with 10 fb{sup -1} luminosity. Without reconstruction of the events, we obtain estimators of the Higgs mass from the peak and width of the signal distribution in m{sub ll}. The separation of signal and background with other distributions, such as the azimuthal angle between two W decay planes, the rapidity difference between the two leptons, missing E{sub T}, and the p{sub T} of leptons, are also prescribed. Our approach identifies the salient Higgs to dilepton signatures that allow subtraction of the continuum W*W* background.

Higgs boson mass bounds separate models of electroweak symmetry breaking  

SciTech Connect

Vacuum stability and metastability imply lower limits on the mass of the Higgs boson in the standard model (SM). In contrast, we present an improved calculation of the lightest Higgs boson mass in supersymmetric (SUSY) models, by summing to all orders in perturbation theory the leading and next-to-leading logarithms with a renormalization group equation technique, and by including finite two-loop QCD corrections. We believe our result to be the most accurate available in the literature. The mass calculation leads to an upper bound on the Higgs boson mass when the SUSY-breaking scale is sensibly restricted to {approx_lt}1 TeV. In particular, our improvements to the SUSY Higgs boson mass calculation lower the minimal SUSY standard model (MSSM) upper limit by about 10 GeV. We study the possibility that these SM and MSSM bounds do not overlap, in which case a single Higgs boson mass measurement will distinguish between the two models. (Abstract Truncated)

Higgs boson productions at LHC as a probe of different littlest Higgs models with T-parity  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Higgs boson productions at the LHC will serve as a sensitive probe of various little Higgs models. In this work we comparatively study two littlest Higgs models with different T-parity constructions through examining their effects in three production processes of the Higgs boson at the LHC, namely the productions of a single Higgs, a Higgs-pair, as well as a Higgs boson associated with a pair of top and anti-top quarks. The two models are characterized by predicting a top partner canceling the Higgs mass quadratic divergence contributed by the top quark with even and odd T-parity, respectively. We find that both models can alter the SM cross sections sizably and their corrections also differ significantly. Therefore, the Higgs boson productions at the LHC may shed some light on these two models or even distinguish them.

Phenomenology of a leptonic goldstino and invisible Higgs boson decays  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Non-linearly realized supersymmetry, combined with the Standard Model field content and SU(3)XSU(2)XU(1) gauge invariance, permits local dimension-six operators involving a goldstino, a lepton doublet and a Higgs doublet. These interactions preserve total lepton number if the left-handed goldstino transforms as an antilepton. We discuss the resulting phenomenology, in the simple limit where the new couplings involve only one lepton family, thus conserving also lepton flavour. Both the Z boson and the Higgs boson can decay into a neutrino and a goldstino: the present limits from the invisible Z width and from other observables leave room for the striking possibility of a Higgs boson decaying dominantly, or at least with a sizable branching ratio, via such an invisible mode. We finally comment on the perspectives at hadron and lepton colliders, and on possible extensions of our analysis.

Effects of Extra Dimensions on Unitarity and Higgs Boson Mass  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We study the unitarity constraint on the two body Higgs boson elastic scattering in the presence of extra dimensions. The contributions from exchange of spin-2 and spin-0 Kaluza-Klein states can have large effect on the partial wave amplitude. Unitarity condition restrict the maximal allowed value for the ratio r of the center of mass energy to the gravity scale to be less than one. Although the constraint on the standard Higgs boson mass for r of order one is considerably relaxed, for small r the constraint is similar to that in the Standard Model. The resulting bound on the Higgs boson mass is not dramatically altered if perturbative calculations are required to be valid up to the maximal allowed value for r.

The combined results of the search for the Standard Model Higgs boson from the four LEP experiments are given. These results are based on the full data sample collected by ALEPH, DELPHI, L3 and OPAL at centre-of-mass energies up to 209GeV, corresponding to a total integrated luminosity of about 2.5fb-1. A slight excess of events over the background expectation is found at the 2sigma level, originating mainly from the ALEPH 4-jet channel. This excess is compatible with what expected for the production of a SM Higgs boson with a mass of 115.6GeV/c2. A combined 95% confidence level lower limit of 114.1GeV/c2 on the mass of the Standard Model Higgs boson is derived.

We derive bounds on the Higgs boson coupling $g^{\\prime}$ to a stable light scalar which is regarded as a collisional dark matter candidate. We study the behaviour of this scalar, that we refer to as phion ($\\phi$), in the early Universe for different ranges of its mass. We find that a phion in the mass range of $100 \\mev$ is excluded, while if its mass is about $1 \\gev$, a rather large coupling constant, $g^{\\prime} \\gsim 2$, and $m_h \\lsim 130 \\gev$ are required in order to avoid overabundance. In the latter case, the invisible decay mode of the Higgs boson is dominant.

Upper Higgs boson mass bounds from a chirally invariant lattice Higgs-Yukawa model  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We establish the cutoff-dependent upper Higgs boson mass bound by means of direct lattice computations in the framework of a chirally invariant lattice Higgs-Yukawa model emulating the same chiral Yukawa coupling structure as in the Higgs-fermion sector of the Standard Model. As expected from the triviality picture of the Higgs sector, we observe the upper mass bound to decrease with rising cutoff parameter $\\Lambda$. Moreover, the strength of the fermionic contribution to the upper mass bound is explored by comparing to the corresponding analysis in the pure $\\Phi^4$-theory.

Search for a Low-Mass Higgs Boson (A0) at BaBar  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

The BABAR Collaboration has performed three searches for a light Higgs boson, A{sup 0}, in radiative Upsilon ({Upsilon}) decays: {Upsilon}(3S) {yields} {gamma}A{sup 0}, A{sup 0} {yields} {tau}{sup +}{tau}{sup -}; {Upsilon}(nS) {yields} {gamma}A{sup 0}, A{sup 0} {yields} {mu}{sup +}{mu}{sup -} (n = 2,3); and {Upsilon}(3S) {yields} {gamma}A{sup 0}, A{sup 0} {yields} invisible. Such a Higgs boson (A{sup 0}) appears in the Next-to-Minimal Supersymmetric extensions of the Standard Model, where a light CP-odd Higgs boson couples strongly to b-quarks. The searches are based on data samples that consist of 122 x 10{sup 6} {Upsilon}(3S) and 99 x 10{sup 6} {Upsilon}(2S) decays, collected by the BABAR detector at the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory. The searches reveal no evidence for an A{sup 0}, and product of branching fractions upper limits, at 90% C.L., of (1.5-16) x 10{sup -5}, (0.44-44) x 10{sup -6}, and (0.7-31) x 10{sup -6} were obtained for these searches, respectively. Also, we set the upper limits {Beta}({eta}{sub b} {yields} {tau}{sup +}{tau}{sup -}) < 8% and {Beta}({eta}{sub b} {yields} {mu}{sup +}{mu}{sup -}) < 0.9%.

Search for Heavy Neutral MSSM Higgs Bosons with CMS: Reach and Higgs-Mass Precision  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The search for MSSM Higgs bosons will be an important goal at the LHC. We analyze the search reach of the CMS experiment for the heavy neutral MSSM Higgs bosons with an integrated luminosity of 30 or 60 fb^-1. This is done by combining the latest results for the CMS experimental sensitivities based on full simulation studies with state-of-the-art theoretical predictions of MSSM Higgs-boson properties. The results are interpreted in MSSM benchmark scenarios in terms of the parameters tan_beta and the Higgs-boson mass scale, M_A. We study the dependence of the 5 sigma discovery contours in the M_A-tan_beta plane on variations of the other supersymmetric parameters. The largest effects arise from a change in the higgsino mass parameter mu, which enters both via higher-order radiative corrections and via the kinematics of Higgs decays into supersymmetric particles. While the variation of $\\mu$ can shift the prospective discovery reach (and correspondingly the ``LHC wedge'' region) by about Delta tan_beta = 10, we find that the discovery reach is rather stable with respect to the impact of other supersymmetric parameters. Within the discovery region we analyze the accuracy with which the masses of the heavy neutral Higgs bosons can be determined. We find that an accuracy of 1-4% should be achievable, which could make it possible in favourable regions of the MSSM parameter space to experimentally resolve the signals of the two heavy MSSM Higgs bosons at the LHC.

Unobservable Higgs Boson and Spontaneous Violation of Lorentz Invariance  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The standard theory of elementary particle physics is modified in such a way that the Higgs boson becomes unobservable and Lorentz invariance is slightly violated at the level of the S-matrix. The basic technique of realizing these properties without violating the unitarity of the physical S-matrix is the use of the complex-ghost quantum field theory.

Searches for the Standard Model Higgs Boson at CMS  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We searched for the standard model Higgs boson in many different channels using approximately 5 fb-1 of 7 TeV pp collisions data collected with the CMS detector at LHC. Combining the results of the different searches we exclude at 95% confidence level a standard model Higgs boson with mass between 127.5 and 600 GeV. The expected 95% confidence level exclusion if the Higgs boson is not present is from 114.5 and 543 GeV. The observed exclusion is weaker than expected at low mass because of some excess that is observed below about 128 GeV. The most significant excess is found at 125 GeV with a local significance of 2.8 sigma. It has a global significance of 0.8 sigma when evaluated in the full search range and of 2.1 sigma when evaluated in the range 110-145 GeV. The excess is consistent both with background fluctuation and a standard model Higgs boson with mass of about 125 GeV, and more data are needed to investigate its origin.

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.

Higgs Boson Production from Black Holes at the LHC  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

If the fundamental Planck scale is near a TeV, then TeV scale black holes should be produced in proton-proton collisions at the LHC where \\sqrt{s} = 14 TeV. As the temperature of the black holes can be ~ 1 TeV we also expect production of Higgs bosons from them via Hawking radiation. This is a different production mode for the Higgs boson, which would normally be produced via direct pQCD parton fusion processes. In this paper we compare total cross sections and transverse momentum distributions d\\sigma/dp_T for Higgs production from black holes at the LHC with those from direct parton fusion processes at next-to-next-to-leading order and next-to-leading order respectively. We find that the Higgs production from black holes can be larger or smaller than the direct pQCD production depending upon the Planck mass and black hole mass. We also find that d\\sigma/dp_T of Higgs production from black holes increases as a function of p_T which is in sharp contrast with the pQCD predictions where d\\sigma/dp_T decreases so we suggest that the measurement of an increase in d\\sigma/dp_T as p_T increases for Higgs (or any other heavy particle) production can be a useful signature for black holes at the LHC.

Higgs-boson effects in grand unified theories  

DOE Green Energy (OSTI)

It is argued that fine tuning of a minimal set of parameters, needed to fix the hierarchy of gauge-boson masses and a knowledge of intermediate symmetry groups, leads to ''natural'' mass scales for physical Higgs bosons in grand unified theories. This is applied to ..delta..B = 2 transitions in models based on SU(5), SO(10), SU(16), and (SU(2N))/sup 4/. It turns out that the Higgs bosons which mediate ..delta..B = 2 neutron-antineutron and hydrogen-antihydrogen oscillations become superheavy, and so such transitions can be observable only in theories with low unification scales, such as SU(16) and (SU(8))/sup 4/, if we adhere to the hypothesis of minimal fine tuning.

An intriguing hypothesis is that gravity may be non-perturbatively renormalizable via the notion of asymptotic safety. We show that the Higgs sector of the SM minimally coupled to asymptotically safe gravity can generate the observed near scale-invariant spectrum of the Cosmic Microwave Background through the curvaton mechanism. The resulting primordial power spectrum places an upper bound on the Higgs mass, which for finely tuned values of the curvaton parameters, is compatible with the recently released Large Hadron Collider data.

A Search for the Standard Model Higgs Boson Produced in Association with a $W$ Boson  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

We present a search for a standard model Higgs boson produced in association with a W boson using data collected with the CDF II detector from p{bar p} collisions at {radical}s = 1.96 TeV. The search is performed in the WH {yields} {ell}{nu}b{bar b} channel. The two quarks usually fragment into two jets, but sometimes a third jet can be produced via gluon radiation, so we have increased the standard two-jet sample by including events that contain three jets. We reconstruct the Higgs boson using two or three jets depending on the kinematics of the event. We find an improvement in our search sensitivity using the larger sample together with this multijet reconstruction technique. Our data show no evidence of a Higgs boson, so we set 95% confidence level upper limits on the WH production rate. We set limits between 3.36 and 28.7 times the standard model prediction for Higgs boson masses ranging from 100 to 150 GeV/c{sup 2}.

Strange reports of ‘discovery ’ of the Higgs boson by

Reports of the discovery of the Higgs boson have been very cryptic, contradictory, shrouded in ambiguity, refer to different types of Higgs bosons, multiple Higgs bosons, and Higgs-like particles, and are often accompanied by mock-up images that contain not one iota of scientific information. Very disturbing is the revelation that scientists at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) made several videos for press release in advance of any announcement, for various different outcomes, so that they could choose to release the video they wanted to present to the world in the press release on the 4 th July 2012 reporting on the performance of the LHC. One such video briefly appeared on the CERN website on the 3 rd of July 2012, the day prior to the official announcement, and was very quickly removed, but not soon enough to prevent wider knowledge of its existence. Even the CERN Press Office did not know what the scientists at the LHC would report to the world on the 4 th of July 2012

We consider a self-gravitating string generated by a global vortex solution in general relativity. We investigate the Einstein and field equations of a global vortex in the region of its central line and at a distance from the centre of the order of the inverse of its Higgs boson mass. By combining the two we establish by a limiting process of large Higgs mass the dynamics of a self-gravitating global string. Under our assumptions the presence of gravitation restricts the world sheet of the global string to be totally geodesic.

We study the coupling parameter dependence of the Higgs boson mass in a chirally invariant lattice Higgs-Yukawa model emulating the same Yukawa coupling structure as in the Higgs-fermion sector of the Standard Model. Eventually, the aim is to establish non-perturbative upper and lower Higgs boson mass bounds derived from first principles, in particular not relying on vacuum stability considerations for the latter case. Here, we present our lattice results for the lower Higgs boson mass bound at several values of the cutoff and compare them to corresponding analytical calculations based on the effective potential as obtained from lattice perturbation theory. Furthermore, we give a brief outlook towards the calculation of the upper Higgs boson mass bound.

Light Stau Phenomenology and the Higgs \\gamma\\gamma Rate  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

Recently, an excess of events consistent with a Higgs boson with mass of about 125 GeV was reported by the CMS and ATLAS experiments. This Higgs boson mass is consistent with the values that may be obtained in minimal supersymmetric extensions of the Standard Model (SM), with both stop masses less than a TeV and large mixing. The apparently enhanced photon production rate associated with this potential Higgs signal may be the result of light staus with large mixing. Large stau mixing and large coupling of the staus to the SM-like Higgs boson may be obtained for large values of tan {beta} and moderate to large values of the Higgsino mass parameter, {mu}. We study the phenomenological properties of this scenario, including precision electroweak data, the muon anomalous magnetic moment, Dark Matter, and the evolution of the soft supersymmetry-breaking parameters to high energies. We also analyze the possible collider signatures of light third generation sleptons and demonstrate that it is possible to find evidence of their production at the 8 TeV and the 14 TeV LHC. The most promising channel is stau and tau sneutrino associated production, with the sneutrino decaying into a W boson plus a light stau.

Topics in the first lectures include: mass generation in chiral theories, spontaneous symmetry breaking, neutrino masses, perturbative unitarity, vacuum stability, vacuum alignment, flavor changing neutral current solutions with multiple Higgs doublets, analysis of type I theory with Z2 symmetry, and rephasing symmetries. After an Essay on the Hierarchy Problem, additional topics are covered that more directly relate to naturalness of the electroweak theory. Emphasis is on their connection to Higgs boson physics. Topics in these later lectures include: supersymmetry, supersymmetric Higgs sector in the Runge basis, leading-order radiative corrections of supersymmetric light Higgs boson mass, theories of extra dimensions, and radion mixing with the Higgs boson in warped extra dimensions. And finally, one lecture is devoted to Higgs boson connections to the hidden sector.

Assuming a top-quark mass of about 150 GeV we analyze the prospects for a charged-Higgs-boson search in top-quark decay at the Fermilab Tevatron upgrade. Universality predicts the relative size of the top decay signal via {ital W} boson in different decay channels, and an observable excess over this prediction can be used as a signature for charged-Higgs-boson production. In the charged-Higgs-boson--fermion coupling scheme suggested by minimal supersymmetry and E{sub 6} string-inspired models one expects to see an observable signal up to a charged-Higgs-boson mass of 100 GeV throughout the allowed range of the coupling parameter tan{beta}. The absence of such a signal would give an unambiguous charged-Higgs-boson mass limit of 100 GeV. This is not possible however in the alternative coupling schemes of two-Higgs-doublet models.

A Zip-code for Quarks, Leptons and Higgs Bosons  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The location of matter fields and the pattern of gauge symmetry in extra dimensions are crucial ingredients for string model building. We analyze realistic MSSM models from the heterotic Z6 Mini-Landscape and extract those properties that are vital for their success. We find that Higgs bosons and the top quark are not localized in extra dimensions and live in the full D=10 dimensional space-time. The first two families of quarks and leptons, however, live at specific fixed points in extra dimensional space and exhibit a (discrete) family symmetry. Within a newly constructed Z2XZ4 orbifold framework we further elaborate on these location properties and the appearance of discrete symmetries. A similar geometrical picture emerges. This particular Zip-code for quarks, leptons and Higgs bosons seems to be of more general validity and thus a useful guideline for realistic model building in string theory.

Upper and lower Higgs boson mass bounds from a chirally invariant lattice Higgs-Yukawa model  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Motivated by the advent of the Large Hadron Collider the aim of the present work is the non-perturbative determination of the cutoff-dependent upper and lower mass bounds of the Standard Model Higgs boson based on first principle calculations, in particular not relying on additional information such as the triviality property of the Higgs-Yukawa sector or indirect arguments like vacuum stability considerations. For that purpose the lattice approach is employed to allow for a non-perturbative investigation of a chirally invariant lattice Higgs-Yukawa model, serving here as a reasonable simplification of the full Standard Model, containing only those fields and interactions which are most essential for the intended Higgs boson mass determination. These are the complex Higgs doublet as well as the top and bottom quark fields and their mutual interactions. To maintain the chiral character of the Standard Model Higgs-fermion coupling also on the lattice, the latter model is constructed on the basis of the Neuberger overlap operator, obeying then an exact global lattice chiral symmetry.

Inflation scenario via the Standard Model Higgs boson and LHC  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We consider a quantum corrected inflation scenario driven by a generic GUT or Standard Model type particle model whose scalar field playing the role of an inflaton has a strong non-minimal coupling to gravity. We show that currently widely accepted bounds on the Higgs mass falsify the suggestion of the paper arXiv:0710.3755 (where the role of radiative corrections was underestimated) that the Standard Model Higgs boson can serve as the inflaton. However, if the Higgs mass could be raised to $\\sim 230$ GeV, then the Standard Model could generate an inflationary scenario with the spectral index of the primordial perturbation spectrum $n_s\\simeq 0.935$ (barely matching present observational data) and the very low tensor-to-scalar perturbation ratio $r\\simeq 0.0006$.

Differences Between the Pole and On-Shell Masses and Widths of the Higgs Boson  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The differences between the on-shell mass and width of the Higgs boson and their pole counterparts are evaluated in leading order. For a heavy Higgs boson, they are found to be sensitive functions of the gauge parameter and become numerically large over a class of gauges that includes the unitary gauge. For a light Higgs boson, the differences remain small in all gauges. The pinch-technique mass and width are found to be close to their pole counterparts over a large range of Higgs boson masses.

The Higgs particle decays dominantly into two gluons jets. The branching ratio for the 2? decay is about 3.5%.

HIGGS BOSON PRODUCTION IN ASSOCIATION WITH BOTTOM QUARKS.  

SciTech Connect

In the Standard Model, the coupling of the Higgs boson to b quarks is weak, leading to small cross sections for producing a Higgs boson in association with b quarks. However, Higgs bosons with enhanced couplings to b quarks, such as occur in supersymmetric models for large values of tan {beta}, will be copiously produced at both the Tevatron and the LHC in association with b quarks which will be an important discovery channel. We investigate the connections between the production channels, bg {yields} bh and gg {yields} b{bar b}h, at next-to-leading order (NLO) in perturbative QCD and present results for the case with two high-p{sub T} b jets and with one high-p{sub T} b jet at both the Tevatron and the LHC. Finally, the total cross sections without cuts are compared between gg {yields} b{bar b}h at NLO and b{bar b} {yields} h at NNLO.

We present a search for a Higgs boson decaying to two W bosons in p{bar p} collisions at {radical}s = 1.96 TeV center-of-mass energy. The data sample corresponds to an integrated luminosity of 3.0 fb{sup -1} collected with the CDF II detector. We find no evidence for production of a Higgs boson with mass between 110 and 200 GeV/c{sup 2}, and determine upper limits on the production cross section. For the mass of 160 GeV/c{sup 2}, where the analysis is most sensitive, the observed (expected) limit is 0.7 pb (0.9 pb) at 95% Bayesian credibility level which is 1.7 (2.2) times the standard model cross section.

CERN LEP indications for two light Higgs bosons and the U(1){sup '} model

Reanalyses of LEP data have shown preference to two light CP-even Higgs bosons. We discuss implications of such a Higgs boson spectrum for the minimal supersymmetric model extended by a standard model singlet chiral superfield and an additional Abelian gauge invariance [the U(1){sup '} model]. We, in particular, determine parameter regions that lead to two light CP-even Higgs bosons while satisfying existing bounds on the mass and mixings of the extra vector boson. In these parameter regions, the pseudoscalar Higgs is found to be nearly degenerate in mass with either the lightest or next-to-lightest Higgs boson. Certain parameters of the U(1){sup '} model such as the effective {mu} parameter are found to be significantly bounded by the LEP two light Higgs signal.

Prospects for precise determination of the Higgs boson couplings from a combined analysis of LHC, ILC and the Photon Linear Collider data are studied in detail for the CP-conserving Two Higgs Doublet Model (II). LHC, ILC and the Photon Collider measurements are complementary, being sensitive to different coupling combinations. For the mass of the heavy scalar Higgs boson between 200 and 350 GeV, where ZZ and W + W ? decaychannels dominate, only the combined analysis of the LHC, ILC and the Photon Collider data allows for unique determination of the basic Higgs boson couplings and for establishing evidence for the possible CP violation in 2HDM. Additional constraints on the model parameters can be obtained by combining available data for the production and decays of the heavy Higgs boson H with the corresponding measurements for the light Higgs boson h.

A 125GeV Higgs Boson and Muon g-2 in More Generic Gauge Mediation  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Recently, the ATLAS and CMS collaborations reported exciting hints of a Standard Model-like Higgs boson with a mass around 125GeV. A Higgs boson this heavy is difficult to realize in conventional models of gauge mediation. Here we revisit the lightest Higgs boson mass in "more generic gauge mediation," where the Higgs doublets mix with the messenger doublets. We show that a Higgs boson mass around 125GeV can be realized in more generic gauge mediation models, even for a relatively light gluino mass ~1TeV. We also show that the muon anomalous magnetic moment can be within 1sigma of the experimental value for these models, even when the Higgs boson is relatively heavy. We also discuss the LHC constraints and the prospects of discovery.

Linear collider signals of an invisible Higgs boson in theories of large extra dimensions  

SciTech Connect

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 tower. We show that the search for such a Higgs boson at an e{sup +}e{sup -} linear collider entails more complications than are usually thought of in relation to an invisibly decaying Higgs boson. The main sources of such complications are due to the simultaneous presence of a continuum graviton production and the broadening of the Higgs peak. We discuss possible ways of overcoming such difficulties and conclude that the detection of such a Higgs boson might still be a problem beyond the mass range of 250-300 GeV.

Searches for the standard model Higgs boson at the CDF experiment  

SciTech Connect

The understanding of the dynamics behind the breaking of the electroweak symmetry is one of the most important goals in the field of high energy physics. In the Standard Model (SM) Higgs mechanism plays a key role in the symmetry breaking, one manifestation of which is spin-0 Higgs boson. Thus the search for the Higgs boson is one of the flag-ship analyses at the Tevatron. Over the past few years the CDF experiment has made significant improvements in its sensitivity on the search for the SM Higgs boson. In this paper we summarize CDF's most recent results on the searches for the SM Higgs boson production at the Tevatron using data samples of integrated luminosities up to 3 fb{sup -1}. We also present the Tevatron's latest combined results on the SM Higgs boson search, and discuss the possibility that it could be found at the Tevatron in the near future.

Higgs Self-Coupling in gamma-gamma Collisions  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

To establish the Higgs mechanism experimentally, one has to determine the Higgs self-interaction potential responsible for the electroweak symmetry breaking. This requires a measurement of the trilinear and quadrilinear self-couplings of the Higgs particle, as predicted by the Standard Model (SM). We propose to measure the trilinear Higgs self-coupling in gamma-gamma collisions just above the kinematic threshold E_thr = 2M_H, where M_H is the Higgs mass. Our calculation reveals that the sensitivity of the cross-section sigma(gamma gamma -> HH) to the Higgs self-coupling is maximal near the 2M_H threshold for M_H = 115-150 GeV, and is larger than the sensitivities of sigma(e+e- -> ZHH) and sigma(e+e- -> nu nu HH) to this coupling for 2E_e H by constructing an X-band e-e- linac and a terawatt laser system in order to produce Compton-scattered gamma-ray beams for a 160-GeV photon collider (2E_e = 200 GeV); (b) add a positron source and repeat all measurements done at LEP and SLC with much better precision; and (c) subsequently install 70-MeV/m rf cavities in order to study e+e- -> H+Z, e+e- -> tt and gamma gamma -> H+H at 2E_e = 350 GeV. The total length of the linac would be about 7 km.

Backgrounds To Higgs Boson Searches from Asymmetric Internal Conversion  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

A class of potential backgrounds for Higgs boson searches in the W W to di-lepton channel at both the Tevatron and Large Hadron Collider is presented. Backgrounds from W photon production with external conversion of the on-shell photon in detector material to an asymmetric electron-positron pair, with loss of the trailing electron or positron has been treated adequately in Higgs searches. Here we consider analogous backgrounds from the production of a W with an off-shell photon and with the internal conversion of the off-shell photon in vacuum to an asymmetric lepton-anti-lepton pair. While the former process yields almost entirely electrons or positrons, the latter can give electron, positron, muon, and anti-muon backgrounds in roughly equal amounts. We estimate that asymmetric internal conversion backgrounds are comparable to the Higgs boson signal in the standard signal region of phase space. These processes also represent potential backgrounds for new physics searches in same-sign di-lepton channels. Some data driven methods to characterize asymmetric internal conversion backgrounds are suggested.

The SU(2){sub L} x U(1){sub Y} gauge theory of the electroweak interactions has enjoyed tremendous success over the past four decades, accurately predicting, or at least accommodating, all high-energy collider data. The gauge group must be broken somehow to U(1){sub EM}, because the unbroken theory predicts massless gauge bosons and massless fermions. The Standard Model incorporates a minimal Higgs sector with a single complex doublet field, to break the symmetry spontaneously, but it is not the only possibility. SUSY Higgses, general two-Higgs-doublet models, and other ideas may prove to model nature better than the minimal model. Many of these models, and even the SM, prefer a light Higgs boson, with a mass between the LEP limit of 114.4 GeV and 200 GeV. The Constrained MSSM favors masses under 120 GeV. A survey of the experimental work so far at LEP and the Tevatron, with estimations of the sensitivity of the upcoming LHC experiments is provided.

The Higgs boson in the Standard Model theoretical constraints and a direct search in the wh channel at the Tevatron  

SciTech Connect

We have presented results in two different yet strongly linked aspects of Higgs boson physics. We have learned about the importance of the Higgs boson for the fate of the Standard Model, being either only a theory limited to explaining phenomena at the electroweak scale or, if the Higgs boson lies within a mass range of 130 < m{sub H} < 160 GeV the SM would remain a self consistent theory up to highest energy scales O(m{sub Pl}). This could have direct implications on theories of cosmological inflation using the Higgs boson as the particle giving rise to inflation in the very early Universe, if it couples non-minimally to gravity, an effect that would only become significant at very high energies. After understanding the immense meaning of proving whether the Higgs boson exists and if so, at which mass, we have presented a direct search for a Higgs boson in associated production with a W boson in a mass range 100 < m{sub H} < 150 GeV. A light Higgs boson is favored regarding constraints from electroweak precision measurements. As a single analysis is not yet sensitive for an observation of the Higgs boson using 5.3 fb{sup -1} of Tevatron data, we set limits on the production cross section times branching ratio. At the Tevatron, however, we are able to combine the sensitivity of our analyses not only across channels or analyses at a single experiment but also across both experiments, namely CDF and D0. This yields to the so-called Tevatron Higgs combination which, in total, combines 129 analyses from both experiments with luminosities of up to 6.7 fb{sup -1}. The results of a previous Tevatron combination led to the first exclusion of possible Higgs boson masses since the LEP exclusion in 2001. The latest Tevatron combination from July 2010 can be seen in Fig. 111 and limits compared to the Standard Model expectation are listed in Table 23. It excludes a SM Higgs boson in the regions of 100 < m{sub H} < 109 GeV as well as 158 < m{sub H} < 175 GeV based on the observed final limits at 95% C.L. In the most interesting low mass region between 115 and 135 GeV, even the full Tevatron combination is not yet sensitive enough to exclude a Higgs boson, or to even prove its existence with a meaningful significance. Fig. 112 shows a projection plot for sensitivity to the SM Higgs boson at the Tevatron as a measure of increasing luminosity. The 10 fb{sup -1} projection is a rather conservative outlook for the coming year of data taking as the Tevatron runs smoothly and the run till the end of 2011 is assured. By now, already 9 fb{sup -1} have been recorded by the two experiments. As the extrapolation plot shows, this amount of luminosity will allow to exclude the Higgs boson over a wide mass range at a 95% C.L. With the LHC at CERN now running and successfully collecting first data, it is worth looking at projections of Higgs boson sensitivity at the current center of mass energy of 7 TeV of the LHC accelerator. Fig. 113 shows a projection of a possible SM Higgs boson exclusion using 1 fb{sup -1} of LHC data collected by the ATLAS experiment. An exclusion is expected between 135 and 188 GeV at 95% C.L., combining the three decay channels H {yields} WW, H {yields} ZZ and H {yields} {gamma}{gamma}. A combination between LHC experiments would possibly yield an even broader range of excluded Higgs boson mass points. Therefore, whether at the Tevatron or the LHC, exciting times in the exclusion or possible discovery of the SM Higgs boson lie ahead.

Higgs Boson Mass predicted by the Four Color Theorem  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We show that the mathematical proof of the four color theorem yields a perfect interpretation of the Standard Model of particle physics. The steps of the proof enable us to construct the t-Riemann surface and particle frame which forms the gauge. We specify well-defined rules to match the Standard Model in a one-to-one correspondence with the topological and algebraic structure of the particle frame. This correspondence is exact - it only allows the particles and force fields to have the observable properties of the Standard Model, giving us a Grand Unified Theory. In this paper, we concentrate on explicitly specifying the quarks, gauge vector bosons, the Standard Model scalar Higgs $H^{0}$ boson and the weak force field. Using all the specifications of our mathematical model, we show how to calculate the values of the Weinberg and Cabibbo angles on the particle frame. Finally, we present our prediction of the Higgs $H^{0}$ boson mass $M_{H^{0}} = 125.992 \\simeq 126 GeV$, as a direct consequence of the proof of the four color theorem.

Search for Higgs Bosons in SUSY cascade decays and neutralino dark matter.  

SciTech Connect

The minimal supersymmetric extension of the standard model (MSSM) is a well-motivated theoretical framework, which contains an extended Higgs sector, including a light Higgs with standard model-like properties in most of the parameter space. Because of the large QCD background, searches for such a Higgs, decaying into a pair of bottom quarks, are very challenging at the LHC. It has been long realized that the situation may be ameliorated by searching for Higgs bosons in supersymmetric decay chains. Moreover, it has been recently suggested that the b{bar b} decay channel may be observed in standard production channels by selecting boosted Higgs bosons, which may be easily identified from the QCD background. Such boosted Higgs bosons are frequent in the MSSM, since they are produced from decays of heavy colored supersymmetric particles. Previous works have emphasized the possibility of observing boosted Higgs bosons in the light Higgsino region. In this work, we study the same question in the regions of parameter space consistent with a neutralino dark matter relic density, analyzing its dependence on the nonstandard Higgs boson, slepton, and squark masses, as well as on the condition of gaugino mass unification. In general, we conclude that, provided sleptons are heavier than the second lightest neutralinos, the presence of boosted Higgs is a common MSSM feature, implying excellent prospects for observation of the light MSSM Higgs boson in the near future.

WMAP-Compliant Benchmark Surfaces for MSSM Higgs Bosons  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

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. An Appendix documents developments in the FeynHiggs code that enable the user to explore for her/himself the WMAP-compliant benchmark surfaces.

Two heavy fermions bound via Higgs boson exchange  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

A system of two heavy fermions, leptons or quarks of the fourth generation, which are bound together via the Higgs boson exchange is studied. The conventional Yukawa-type interaction produced by this exchange is accompanied by several important corrections. We derived the Hamiltonian, which describes the correction arising from the retardation (compare the Breit correction in QED); we also calculated the relativistic and radiative corrections. The Higgs-induced bound state appears for the fermion mass m>m_{cr} \\approx 500 GeV. When the long-range Coulomb interaction or the gluon exchange are included, the bound states exist for any mass, but the Higgs exchange drastically increases the binding energy of these states when m is approaching m_{cr}. In the region m>m_{cr} the gluon exchange gives a sizable correction to the Higgs induced binding energy. This correction greatly exceeds typical binding energies in the states produced via the gluon exchange only. The possibility of detection of the considered bound states at LHC is discussed.

Measurement of the Higgs Boson Mass with a Linear e+e- Collider  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The potential of a linear e+e- collider operated at a centre-of-mass energy of 350 GeV is studied for the measurement of the Higgs boson mass. An integrated luminosity of 500 fb-1 is assumed. For Higgs boson masses of 120, 150 and 180 GeV the uncertainty on the Higgs boson mass measurement is estimated to be 40, 65 and 70 MeV, respectively. The effects of beam related systematics, namely a bias in the beam energy measurement, the beam energy spread and the luminosity spectrum due to beamstrahlung, on the precision of the Higgs boson mass measurement are investigated. In order to keep the systematic uncertainty on the Higgs boson mass well below the level of the statistical error, the beam energy measurement must be controlled with a relative precision better than 10-4.

Six-Quark Decays of the Higgs Boson in Supersymmetry with R-Parity Violation  

SciTech Connect

Both electroweak precision measurements and simple supersymmetric extensions of the standard model prefer a mass of the Higgs boson less than the experimental lower limit (on a standard-model-like Higgs boson) of 114 GeV. We show that supersymmetric models with R parity violation and baryon-number violation have a significant range of parameter space in which the Higgs boson dominantly decays to six jets. These decays are much more weakly constrained by current CERN LEP analyses and would allow for a Higgs boson mass near that of the Z. In general, lighter scalar quark and other superpartner masses are allowed. The Higgs boson would potentially be discovered at hadron colliders via the appearance of new displaced vertices.

Naturalness lowers the upper bound on the lightest Higgs boson mass in supersymmetry  

SciTech Connect

We quantify the extent to which naturalness is lost as experimental lower bounds on the Higgs boson mass increase, and we compute the natural upper bound on the lightest supersymmetric Higgs boson mass. We find that it would be unnatural for the mass of the lightest supersymmetric Higgs boson to saturate its maximal upper bound. In the absence of significant fine-tuning, the lightest Higgs boson mass should lie below 120 GeV, and in the most natural cases it should be lighter than 108 GeV. For modest tan{beta}, these bounds are significantly lower. Our results imply that a failure to observe a light Higgs boson in experiments previous to the CERN LHC becoming operational could provide a serious challenge to the principal motivation for weak-scale supersymmetry. {copyright} {ital 1997} {ital The American Physical Society}

Indications on the Higgs boson mass from lattice simulations  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The `triviality' of $\\Phi^4_4$ has been traditionally interpreted within perturbation theory where the prediction for the Higgs boson mass depends on the magnitude of the ultraviolet cutoff $\\Lambda$. This approach crucially assumes that the vacuum field and its quantum fluctuations rescale in the same way. The results of the present lattice simulation, confirming previous numerical indications, show that this assumption is not true. As a consequence, large values of the Higgs mass $m_H$ can coexist with the limit $\\Lambda\\to \\infty $. As an example, by extrapolating to the Standard Model our results obtained in the Ising limit of the one-component theory, one can obtain a value as large as $m_H=760 \\pm 21$ GeV, independently of $\\Lambda$.

Higgs boson, renormalization group, and naturalness in cosmology  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We consider the renormalization group improvement in the theory of the Standard Model (SM) Higgs boson playing the role of an inflaton with a strong non-minimal coupling to gravity. At the one-loop level with the running of constants taken into account, it leads to a range of the Higgs mass that is entirely determined by the lower WMAP bound on the cosmic microwave background (CMB) spectral index. We find that the SM phenomenology is sensitive to current cosmological data, which suggests to perform more precise CMB measurements as a SM test complementary to the LHC program. By using the concept of a field-dependent cutoff, we show the naturalness of the gradient and curvature expansion in this model within the conventional perturbation theory range of the SM. We also discuss the relation of these results to two-loop calculations and the limitations of the latter caused by parametrization and gauge dependence problems.

The pair production of Charged and Neutral Higgs bosons in W and Z gauge boson fusion process  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We study the signatures of a two Higgs doublet model of Davidson and Logan. The model includes an extra Higgs doublet with the vacuum expectation value (VEV) much smaller than the one of the standard model like Higgs. The smaller VEV is related to the origin of the small neutrino mass in the two Higgs doublet model. In the model, a single non-standard model like Higgs production of weak gauge boson fusion is suppressed due to the smallness of the vacuum expectation value. In contrast to the single Higgs production, the cross section of the Higgs pair production due to gauge boson fusion is not suppressed. Using the model, we compute the charged Higgs and neutral Higgs pair production cross section in W Z annihilation channel. In the two Higgs doublet model, the charged Higgs H^+ decays into a pair of the charged anti-lepton and right-handed neutrino. The neutral Higgs boson decays into right-handed neutrino and left-handed anti-neutrino pair which is invisible. A single charged anti-lepton and three neutrinos are the products of the subsequent decays of the charged Higgs and the neutral Higgs. W Z pair production gives the background for the signal through the decays W^+ ->nu l^+ and Z -> nu nubar. By multiplying the charged and neutral Higgses production cross section with the lepton flavor specific decay branching fractions of charged Higgs, we define a measurement which characterizes the present model. We numerically compute the measurement and find the sizable deviation from the standard model prediction.

We add fermions to an abelian-gauged hidden sector. We show that the lightest can be the dark matter with the right thermal relic abundance, and discovery is within reach of upcoming dark matter detectors. We also show that these fermions change Higgs boson phenomenology at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), and in particular could induce a large invisible width to the lightest Higgs boson state. Such an invisibly decaying Higgs boson can be discovered with good significance in the vector boson fusion channel at the LHC.

We reanalyze constraints on the mass spectrum of the chiral fourth generation fermions and the Higgs bosons for the standard model (SM4) and the two Higgs doublet model (THDM). We find that the Higgs mass in the SM4 should be larger than roughly the fourth generation up-type quark mass, while the light CP even Higgs mass in the THDM can be smaller. Various mass spectra of the fourth generation fermions and the Higgs bosons are allowed. The phenomenology of the fourth generation models is still rich.

Radiative corrections for several heavy fermions bound together via the Higgs boson exchange are studied.

It is shown that for `moderately heavy' fermions with masses 0.4< m c^2< 1 TeV the radiative corrections are small, 10^{-2}, and have an attractive nature. Therefore they do not put existence of the fermion bag in doubt. This proves that these fermion bags can exist in nature.

A Quantizable Model of Massive Gauge Vector Bosons without Higgs  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We incorporate the parameters of the gauge group G into the gauge theory of interactions through a non-linear partial-trace sigma-model Lagrangian on G/H. The minimal coupling of the new (Goldstone-like) scalar bosons provides mass terms to those intermediate vector bosons associated with the quotient G/H, without spoiling gauge invariance, remaining the H-vector potentials massless. The main virtue of a partial trace on G/H, rather than on the entire G, is that we can find an infinite-dimensional symmetry, with non-trivial Noether invariants, which ensures quantum integrability in a non-canonical quantization scheme. The present formalism is explicitly applied to the case G=SU(2)x U(1), as a Higgs-less alternative to the Standard Model of electroweak interactions, although it can also be used in low-energy phenomenological models for strong interactions.

Search for MSSM Higgs Bosons in Tau Final States with the D0 Detector  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

The cross-section times branching ratio of the Higgs boson decaying to {tau}{sup +}{tau}{sup -} final state in the Standard Model (SM) is too small to play any role in the SM Higgs boson searches. This, however, is different in the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (MSSM), which predicts two Higgs doublets leading to five Higgs bosons: a pair of charged Higgs boson (H{sup {+-}}); two neutral CP-even Higgs bosons (h,H) and a CP-odd Higgs boson (A). A search for the production of neutral Higgs bosons decaying into {tau}{sup +}{tau}{sup -} final states in p{bar p} collisions at a centre-of-mass energy of {radical}s = 1.96 TeV is presented in this thesis. One of the two {tau} leptons is required to decay into a muon while the other decays hadronically. The integrated luminosity is L = 1.0-5.36 fb{sup -1}, collected by the D0 experiment at the Fermilab Tevatron Collider from 2002 to 2009 in the Run II.

An extra Z' gauge boson as a source of Higgs particles  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Models with extra gauge bosons often require an extended Higgs sector, which contains a rich spectrum of Higgs bosons with properties that deviate from the Standard Model (SM). Such Higgs bosons could be searched using standard mechanisms similar to the SM. However, the existence of the new gauge bosons could provide new production mechanisms, which could probe the non-standard origin of the Higgs particle. In this paper we study how the Z' from a model with extra U(1)' could be used as a source of Higgs bosons. We study 3-bodies decays of the Z' into a Higgs boson and a top anti-top pair or WW pair, namely Z'\\to t\\bar{t} h, WW h. We find that it is possible to get {\\Br'}s as high as 10^{-2} for these modes, which could be studied at future colliders. We also study the production of the Higgs bosons in association with the Z vector boson at a linear collider, through the reaction e^+ e^- \\to Z, Z'\\to Z+h, including both the resonant and the non-resonant effects.

Effective Yukawa couplings and flavor-changing Higgs boson decays at linear colliders  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

We analyze the advantages of a linear-collider program for testing a recent theoretical proposal where the Higgs boson Yukawa couplings are radiatively generated, keeping unchanged the standard-model mechanism for electroweak-gauge-symmetry breaking. Fermion masses arise at a large energy scale through an unknown mechanism, and the standard model at the electroweak scale is regarded as an effective field theory. In this scenario, Higgs boson decays into photons and electroweak gauge-boson pairs are considerably enhanced for a light Higgs boson, which makes a signal observation at the LHC straightforward. On the other hand, the clean environment of a linear collider is required to directly probe the radiative fermionic sector of the Higgs boson couplings. Also, we show that the flavor-changing Higgs boson decays are dramatically enhanced with respect to the standard model. In particular, we find a measurable branching ratio in the range (10{sup -4}-10{sup -3}) for the decay H{yields}bs for a Higgs boson lighter than 140 GeV, depending on the high-energy scale where Yukawa couplings vanish. We present a detailed analysis of the Higgs boson production cross sections at linear colliders for interesting decay signatures, as well as branching-ratio correlations for different flavor-conserving/nonconserving fermionic decays.

Finite width effects in Higgs boson decays as a means of measuring massive particle widths  

SciTech Connect

We calculate decays of a standard model Higgs boson via a virtual massive particle and discuss how this depends on the massive particle total width. If the partial width for a Higgs boson to decay via a virtual massive particle can be measured, this gives a measurement of that massive particle{close_quote}s width. We discuss how one would go about measuring these partial widths of a Higgs boson experimentally, and how this could lead to a measurement of the {ital W} boson and {ital t} quark widths. For the latter, extreme dependence on the Higgs boson mass and the small {ital H}{r_arrow}{ital tt{sup {asterisk}}} branching ratios mean that little can be learned about the {ital t} quark width. For the former there is also a larger dependence on the Higgs boson mass; however, this can be removed by taking the ratio of {ital H}{r_arrow}{ital WW{sup {asterisk}}} decays to {ital H}{r_arrow}{ital ZZ{sup {asterisk}}} decays. This ratio also has the advantage of being fairly insensitive to physics beyond the standard model. Unfortunately, for Higgs boson masses of interest the {ital H}{r_arrow}{ital ZZ{sup {asterisk}}} branching ratio is small enough that we require many thousands of tagged Higgs boson decays before an accurate measurement of the {ital W} width can be made. This is likely to be hard experimentally. {copyright} {ital 1996 The American Physical Society.}

Higgs boson. Complete discovery and the window to a New Physics  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

1. We discuss the opportunities of complete Higgs boson discovery at different colliders. Main conclusion here is: Photon collider is the best for this goal. 2. We discuss how to use the Higgs boson (after its discovery) as the window to a New Physics. Main conclusion here is: Higgs boson production in gluon and photon fusion together with production in process e? ? eH provides very good window to a New Physics with the scale ? ? MH. Among the main goals for future large colliders is the discovery of Higgs boson. In the Standard Model (SM) Higgs boson is responsible for the observed breaking of the basic SU(2) × U(1) symmetry; the fundamental particles acquire masses through the interaction with scalar Higgs field. Until reliable discovery of Higgs we cannot believe that the SM is governed our world. The construction of SM admits different variants of Higgs sector. Before symmetry breaking, Higgs fields can be several (weak) isotopical doublets, triplets etc. (in the MSSM — 2 doublets). In the minimal variant (MSM) this Higgs field is single weak

A light triplet boson and Higgs-to-diphoton in supersymmetric type II seesaw  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The supersymmetric type II seesaw may leave a limit where a triplet boson along with the standard Higgs boson remains light. Working in this limit with small triplet vacuum expectation vlaues, we explore how much such a light triplet boson can contribute to the Higgs boson decay to diphoton, and analyze the feasibility to observe it through same-sign di-lepton and tetra-lepton signals in the forthcoming LHC run after setting a LHC7 limit in a simplified parameter space of the triplet vaccum expectation value and the doubly charged boson mass.

Combined CDF and D0 Searches for the Standard Model Higgs Boson Decaying to Two Photons with up to 8.2 fb^-1

We combine results from CDF and D0's direct searches for the standard model (SM) Higgs boson (H) produced in p{bar p} collisions at the Fermilab Tevatron at {radical}s = 1.96 TeV, focusing on the decay H {yields} {gamma}{gamma}. We compute upper limits on the Higgs boson production cross section times the decay branching fraction in the range 100 < m{sub H} < 150 GeV/c{sup 2}, and we interpret the results in the context of the standard model. We use the MSTW08 parton distribution functions and the latest theoretical cross section predictions when testing for the presence of a SM Higgs boson. With datasets corresponding to 7.0 fb{sup -1} (CDF) and 8.2 fb{sup -1} (D0), the 95% C.L. upper limits on Higgs boson production is a factor of 10.5 times the SM cross section for a Higgs boson mass of 115 GeV/c{sup 2}.

The HIGGS Boson Mass at 2 Loops in the Finely Tuned Split Supersymmetric Standard Model  

SciTech Connect

The mass of the Higgs boson in the finely tuned Split Supersymmetric Standard Model is calculated. All 1 loop threshold effects are included, in addition to the full RG running of the Higgs quartic coupling through 2 loops. The 2 loop corrections are very small, typically less than 1GeV. The 1 loop threshold corrections to the top yukawa coupling and the Higgs mass generally push the Higgs mass down a few GeV.

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.

Reconstructing the Higgs boson in dileptonic W decays at hadron colliders  

SciTech Connect

We examine the prospect to measure the Higgs boson mass using the recently introduced kinematic variable, the M{sub T2}-assisted on-shell (MAOS) momentum, that provides a systematic approximation to the invisible neutrino momenta in dileptonic decays of a W-boson pair. For this purpose, we introduce a modified version of the MAOS momentum that is applicable even when one or both of the W-bosons from the Higgs decay are in off shell. It is demonstrated that the MAOS Higgs mass distribution, constructed with the MAOS neutrino momenta, shows a clear peak at the true Higgs boson mass when an event cut selecting higher value of M{sub T2} is employed. We perform the likelihood analysis for this MAOS mass distribution to determine the Higgs boson mass, and find it can improve the accuracy of the Higgs mass measurement. Our results indicate that the MAOS Higgs mass can also be useful for the discovery or exclusion of the Higgs boson in certain mass range.

Invisible Higgs Boson Decay into Massive Neutrinos of 4th Generation  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Results from several recent experiments provide inderect evidences in the favor of existence of a 4th generation neutrino. Such a neutrino of mass about 50 GeV is compatible with current physical and astrophysical constraints and well motivated in the framework of superstring phenomenology. If sufficiently stable the existence of such a neutrino leads to the drastic change of Higgs boson physics: for a wide range of Higgs boson masses the dominant mode of Higgs boson decay is invisible and the branching ratios for the most promising modes of Higgs boson search are significantly reduced. The proper strategy of Higgs boson searches in such a framework is discussed. It is shown that in the same framework the absence of a signal in the search for invisible Higgs boson decay at LEP means either that the mass of Higgs is greater than 113.5 GeV or that the mass difference between the Higgs mass and doubled neutrino mass is small.

A Higgs boson within the mass range MH = 140 ? 190 GeV can be discovered at a photon collider in the reaction ?? ? WW (with real or virtual W). Quite moderate resolution in the effective mass of the WW system is required. Preliminary remarks. A discovery of the Higgs boson is one of the main goals for the next generation of colliders. If the Higgs boson mass MH is larger than 2MZ, Higgs boson can be discovered at LHC, photon colliders [1] or e + e ? linear colliders [2] via the sizable decay mode H ? ZZ. For all types of collisions a background to this decay mode is rather small.

Searches for a high mass Standard Model Higgs boson at the Tevatron

Higgs boson searches are commonly considered one of the main objectives of particle physics nowadays. The latest results obtained by the CDF and D0 collaborations are presented here when searching for Higgs boson decaying into a W-boson pair, currently the most sensitive channel for masses greater than 130 GeV. The presented results are based on an integrated luminosity that ranges from 3.0 to 4.2 fb^-1. No significant excess over expected background is observed and the 95% CL limits are set for a Standard Model (SM) Higgs boson for different mass hypotheses ranging from 100 GeV to 200 GeV. The combination of CDF and D0 results is also presented, which exclude for the first time a SM Higgs boson in the 160 < mH < 170 GeV mass range.

Motivation and detectability of an invisibly decaying Higgs boson at the Fermilab Tevatron  

SciTech Connect

A Higgs boson with a mass below 150 GeV has a total decay width of less than 20 MeV into accessible standard model states. This narrow width means that the usual branching fractions for such a light Higgs boson are highly susceptible to any new particles to which it has unsuppressed couplings. In particular, there are many reasonable and interesting theoretical ideas that naturally imply an invisibly decaying Higgs boson. The motivations include models with light supersymmetric neutralinos, spontaneously broken lepton number, radiatively generated neutrino masses, additional singlet scalar(s), or right-handed neutrinos in the extra dimensions of TeV gravity. We discuss these approaches to model building and their implications for Higgs boson phenomenology in future Fermilab Tevatron runs. We find, for example, that the Tevatron with 30 fb{sup {minus}1} integrated luminosity can make a 3{sigma} observation in the l{sup +}l{sup {minus}}+E/{sub T} channel for a 125 GeV Higgs boson that is produced with the same strength as the standard model Higgs boson but always decays invisibly. We also analyze the b{bar b}+E/{sub T} final state signal and conclude that it is not as sensitive, but it may assist in excluding the possibility of an invisibly decaying Higgs boson or enable confirmation of an observed signal in the dilepton channel. We argue that a comprehensive Higgs boson search at the Tevatron should include the possibility that the Higgs boson decays invisibly. {copyright} {ital 1999} {ital The American Physical Society}

Observation of the Higgs Boson of strong interaction via Compton scattering by the nucleon  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

It is shown that the Quark-Level Linear $\\sigma$ Model (QLL$\\sigma$M) leads to a prediction for the diamagnetic term of the polarizabilities of the nucleon which is in excellent agreement with the experimental data. The bare mass of the $\\sigma$ meson is predicted to be $m_\\sigma=666$ MeV and the two-photon width $\\Gamma(\\sigma\\to\\gamma\\gamma)=(2.6\\pm 0.3)$ keV. It is argued that the mass predicted by the QLL$\\sigma$M corresponds to the $\\gamma\\gamma\\to\\sigma\\to NN$ reaction, i.e. to a $t$-channel pole of the $\\gamma N\\to N\\gamma$ reaction. Large -angle Compton scattering experiments revealing effects of the $\\sigma$ meson in the differential cross section are discussed. Arguments are presented that these findings may be understood as an observation of the Higgs boson of strong interaction while being part of the constituent quark.

Constraining extra-fermion(s) from the Higgs boson data  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

First, we study the fit of the Higgs boson rates, based on all the latest collider data, in the effective framework for any Extra-Fermion(s) [EF]. The best-fit results are presented in a generic formalism allowing to apply those for the test of any EF scenario. The variations of the fit with each one of the five fundamental parameters are described, and, the obtained fits can be better than in the Standard Model (SM). We show how the determination of the EF loop-contributions to the Higgs couplings with photons and gluons is relying on the knowledge of the top and bottom Yukawa couplings (affected by EF mixings); for determining the latter coupling, the relevance of the investigation of the Higgs production in association with bottom quarks is emphasized. In the instructive approximation of a single EF, we find that the constraints from the fit already turn out to be quite predictive, in both cases of an EF mixed or not with SM fermions, and especially when combined with the extra-quark (-lepton) mass bounds from direct EF searches at the LHC (LEP) collider. In the case of an unmixed extra-quark, non-trivial fit constraints are pointed out on the Yukawa couplings for masses up to ~200 TeV. In particular, we define the extra-dysfermiophilia, which is predicted at 68.27% C.L. for any single extra-quark (independently of its electric charge). Another result is that, among any components of SM multiplet extensions, the extra-quark with a -7/3 electric charge is the one preferred by the present Higgs fit.

We select events consistent with a signature of a single lepton (e{sup {+-}}/{mu}{sup {+-}}), missing transverse energy, and two jets. Jets corresponding to bottom quarks are identified with a secondary vertex tagging method and a neural network filter technique. The observed number of events and the dijet mass distributions are consistent with the standard model background expectations, and we set 95% confidence level upper limits on the production cross section times branching ratio ranging from 3.9 to 1.3 pb for Higgs boson masses from 110 to 150 GeV/c{sup 2}, respectively.

How Can a Heavy Higgs Boson be Consistent with the Precision Electroweak Measurements?

The fit of precision electroweak data to the Minimal Standard Model currently gives an upper limit on the Higgs boson mass of 170 GeV at 95% confidence. Nevertheless, it is often said that the Higgs boson could be much heavier in more general models. In this paper, we critically review models that have been proposed in the literature that allow a heavy Higgs boson consistent with the precision electroweak constraints. All have unusual features, and all can be distinguished from the Minimal Standard Model either by improved precision measurements or by other signatures accessible to next-generation colliders.

Remarks on double Higgs boson production by gluon fusion at threshold  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The amplitude of double Higgs boson production by the gluon fusion, $gg \\to hh$, is known to be small due to cancellation between the graphs with the boson trilinear coupling and those with the coupling to the top quark. For this reason a study of this process was suggested as a sensitive probe of the Higgs sector nonlinearity. We calculate in a closed analytical form this amplitude at the threshold of the two bosons, where the cancellation is the strongest, and discuss the origin of the small value of the amplitude. We also note that the cancellation in the double boson production is in fact a part of a more general phenomenon of suppression of similar threshold amplitudes for multiple boson production, which, although not directly relevant to the actual top quark and the Higgs boson, can be useful in other studies.

Combined upper limit on Standard Model Higgs boson production at CDF  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

The Higgs boson is the only elementary particle predicted by the Standard Model (SM) that has neither been confirmed nor refuted. The CDF collaboration has performed SM Higgs searches in many channels using p{bar p} collisions at a centre-of-mass energy {radical}s = 1.96 TeV. We present the latest combined Higgs boson search at CDF. Since the previous year's combination, the sensitivity is increased through the addition of new channels, the improvement of existing channels and the addition of new data samples. We also use the latest parton distribution functions and gg {yields} H theoretical cross sections when modelling the signal event yields. Using integrated luminosities of up to 8.2 fb{sup -1}, we observe a good agreement between data and the background prediction. Since we do not see a Higgs boson excess, we set 95% CL upper limits on the Higgs boson cross section in the range between 100 and 200 GeV/c{sup 2}, with 5 GeV/c{sup 2} increments. The observed (expected) limits for a 115 and a 165 GeV/c{sup 2} Higgs boson are 1.55 (1.49) and 0.75 (0.79) x SM, respectively. Since last year, the Higgs boson excluded range by CDF is extended to 156.5 - 173.7 and 100 - 104.5 GeV/c{sup 2}.

Search for the Higgs boson produced in association with a W boson at CDF Run II  

SciTech Connect

We present a search for standard model Higgs boson production in association with a W boson in proton-antiproton collisions (p{bar p} {yields} W{sup {+-}}H {yields} {ell}{nu}b{bar b}) at a center of mass energy of 1.96 TeV. WH candidate events have a signature of a single lepton (E{sup {+-}}/{mu}{sup {+-}}), missing transverse energy, and two jets. The search looks for candidate events in approximately 2.7 fb{sup -1} of data recorded with the CDF II detector. The high-p{sub T} lepton (e,{mu}) in the events provides a distinct signature for triggering and most of the events in the dataset come from high-p{sub t} lepton triggers. Our analysis improves on prior searches by including events recorded on the E{sub T} + 2 Jets trigger with a lepton reconstructed as an isolated high-p{sub T} charged particle. We increase the sample purity by identifying ('tagging') long-lived b-hadrons in jets. A neural network combines distinguishing kinematic information into a function optimized for WH sensitivity. The neural network output distributions are consistent with the standard model background expectations and we set limits upper limits on the rate of Higgs production. We set 95% confidence level upper limits on the WH production cross section times branching ratio for Higgs masses from 100 to 150 GeV/c{sup 2} and express our results as a ratio of the experimental limit to the theoretical Standard Model production rate. Our limits range from 3.6 (4.3 expected) to 61.1 (43.2 expected) for Higgs masses from 100 to 150 GeV/c{sup 2}, respectively.

International Journal of Modern Physics Letters A Vol. 20 (2005) Higgs Boson Searches at Hadron Colliders  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The investigation of the dynamics responsible for electroweak symmetry breaking is one of the prime tasks of experiments at present and future colliders. Experiments at the Tevatron pp Collider and at the CERN Large Hadron Collider (LHC) must be able to discover a Standard Model Higgs boson over the full mass range as well as Higgs bosons in extended models. In this review, the discovery potential for the Standard Model Higgs boson and for Higgs bosons in the Minimal Supersymmetric extension is summarized. Emphasis is put on those studies which have been performed recently within the experimental collaborations using a realistic simulation of the detector performance. This includes a discussion of the search for Higgs bosons using the vector boson fusion mode at the LHC, a discussion on the measurement of Higgs boson parameters as well as a detailed review of the MSSM sector for different benchmark scenarios. The Tevatron part of the review also contains a discussion of first physics results from data taken in the ongoing Run II. 1

Associated Higgs-W-Boson Production at Hadron Colliders: A Fully Exclusive QCD Calculation at NNLO

We consider QCD radiative corrections to standard model Higgs-boson production in association with a W boson in hadron collisions. We present a fully exclusive calculation up to next-to-next-to-leading order (NNLO) in QCD perturbation theory. To perform this NNLO computation, we use a recently proposed version of the subtraction formalism. Our calculation includes finite-width effects, the leptonic decay of the W boson with its spin correlations, and the decay of the Higgs boson into a bb pair. We present selected numerical results at the Tevatron and the LHC.

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.

Asymptotic safety of gravity and the Higgs boson mass  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

There are indications that gravity is asymptotically safe. The Standard Model (SM) plus gravity could be valid up to arbitrarily high energies. Supposing that this is indeed the case and assuming that there are no intermediate energy scales between the Fermi and Planck scales we address the question of whether the mass of the Higgs boson $m_H$ can be predicted. For a positive gravity induced anomalous dimension $A_\\lambda>0$ the running of the quartic scalar self interaction $\\lambda$ at scales beyond the Planck mass is determined by a fixed point at zero. This results in $m_H=m_{\\rm min}=126$ GeV, with only a few GeV uncertainty. This prediction is independent of the details of the short distance running and holds for a wide class of extensions of the SM as well. For $A_\\lambda 0$ is favored by explicit computations existing in the literature.

A search for neutral Higgs bosons produced in association with b-quark(s) and decaying into a pair of b-quarks is performed with the CMS detector at LHC. The Higgs boson signal is expected to emerge as an excess in the mass spectrum of two b-tagged jets. Dedicated triggers with on-line b-tagging in fully hadronic events were developed specifically for this kind of analysis. Limits on the cross section times branching fractions are derived model independently. The result was interpreted in the Minimal Supersymmetric Model (MSSM). Upper limits at $tan\\beta$ are derived as a function of MA, the mass of the Higgs boson A. In the analysis presented here data taken in 2011 at 7 TeV are used corresponding to a total luminosity of $ L = 2.7 - 4.0 fb^{-1} $ for low and medium Higgs boson masses, respectively.

Discovering a Higgs boson decaying to four jets in supersymmetric cascade decays  

SciTech Connect

The Higgs boson may dominantly decay to four light jets through a light pseudoscalar intermediary: h{yields}2{eta}{yields}4j, making reconstruction at the LHC particularly challenging. We explore the phenomenology of such ''buried Higgs'' scenarios in which the primary discovery channel of the Higgs is in cascade decays of superpartners. QCD backgrounds that would otherwise overwhelm the Higgs decay are suppressed by the requirement of high p{sub T} jets and large missing transverse momentum that are the typical signatures of TeV scale supersymmetry. Utilizing jet substructure techniques, we find that for buried Higgses in the 100-120 GeV range, a 5{sigma} discovery can be expected with roughly 10-25 fb{sup -1} of data at E{sub CM}=14 TeV. For lighter Higgs bosons, the signal is contaminated by hadronically decaying W bosons, and discovery remains an unsolved challenge.

Search strategies for Higgs Bosons at high energy e/sup +/e/sup /minus// colliders  

SciTech Connect

We have used detailed Monte Carlo simulations to study search strategies for Higgs bosons at high energy e/sup +/e/sup /minus// colliders. We extend an earlier study of the minimal single-Higgs-doublet model at a center-of-mass energy of 1 TeV to examine the effects of b-quark tagging and jet counting. It is found that these techniques can increase the signal-to-noise ratio substantially in the mass range around the W mass. In addition, we have studied this model at a center-of-mass energy of 400 GeV and found that an e/sup +/e/sup /minus// collider in this region would be sensitive to a Higgs boson with mass up to twice the Z/degree/ mass. We have also considered a nonminimal two-doublet model for the Higgs sector by extending a study of charged Higgs boson searches to include a mass very close to the mass of the W/sup +-/. We demonstrate that techniques which include b-quark tagging can be utilized to extract a significant signal. In addition, we have examined the prospects for detecting nonminimal neutral Higgs bosons at 1 TeV. We conclude that it would be possible to detect the CP-even and CP-odd neutral Higgs bosons when they are pair-produced in e/sup +/e/sup /minus// annihilation over a limited mass range. However, in some scenarios of supersymmetry, the charged Higgs boson constitutes a significant background to the CP-odd and the more massive CP-even neutral Higgs boson. 16 refs., 13 figs., 2 tabs.

LHC diphoton Higgs signal predicted by little Higgs models  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

Little Higgs theory naturally predicts a light Higgs boson whose most important discovery channel at the LHC is the diphoton signal pp{yields}h{yields}{gamma}{gamma}. In this work, we perform a comparative study for this signal in some typical little Higgs models, namely, the littlest Higgs model, two littlest Higgs models with T-parity (named LHT-I and LHT-II), and the simplest little Higgs models. We find that compared with the standard model prediction, the diphoton signal rate is always suppressed and the suppression extent can be quite different for different models. The suppression is mild (Higgs boson predicted by the little Higgs theory through the diphoton channel at the LHC will be more difficult than discovering the standard model Higgs boson.

Comparison of Higgs Boson Mass and Width Determination of the LHC and a Linear Collider

Two important properties of a Higgs boson are its mass and width. They may distinguish the Standard Model (SM) Higgs boson from Higgs bosons of extended models. We show results from a direct mass and width reconstruction for a Higgs boson mass range from 120 to 340 GeV/c 2. The mass and width have been reconstructed from the H ? ZZ ? ? µ + µ ? µ + µ ? reaction in an LHC simulation of the CMS detector. The determined mass accuracy has been compared with that obtained from studies for a linear collider (LC). The mass precision from the latter studies is derived by scaling previous LC simulation results according to the expected event rates. For the Higgs boson width we compare a direct determination with indirect methods and find good complementarity. Talk at the Worldwide Workshop on Future e + e ?

Higgs boson plus photon production at the LHC: a clean probe of the b-quark parton densities  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Higgs boson production in association with a high pT photon at the CERN Large Hadron Collider is analyzed, in the framework of the MSSM model, for the heavier neutral Higgs bosons. The request of an additional photon in the exclusive Higgs boson final state selects b-quark pairs among the possible initial partonic states, since gluon-gluon initial states are not allowed by C-parity conservation. Hence, the measurement of cross sections for neutral Higgs boson plus photon production can provide a clean probe of the b-quark density in the proton as well as of the b-quark Yukawa coupling. The suppression of the production rates by the b-quark electromagnetic coupling can be compensated by the enhanced Higgs boson Yukawa coupling to b's in the large tan(beta) regime. The Higgs boson decay into a tau-lepton pair is considered, and irreducible backgrounds with corresponding signal significances are evaluated.

Testing Minimal Universal Extra Dimensions Using Higgs Boson Searches at the LHC  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Large Hadron Collider (LHC) searches for the SM Higgs boson provide a powerful limit on models involving Universal Extra Dimensions (UED) where the Higgs production is enhanced. We have evaluated all one-loop diagrams for Higgs production from gluon fusion and decay to two photons within "minimal" UED (mUED), independently confirming previous results, and we have evaluated enhancement factors for Higgs boson production and decay over the mUED parameter space. Using these we have derived limits on the parameter space, combining data from both ATLAS and CMS collaborations for the most recent 7 TeV and 8 TeV LHC data. We have performed a rigorous statistical combination of several Higgs boson search channels which is important because mUED signatures from the Higgs boson are not universally enhanced. We have found that 1/R 1000 GeV) around m_h = 118 GeV are left. The latter is likely to be excluded as more data becomes available whereas the region around 125 GeV is where the recently discovered Higgs-like particle was observed and therefore where the exclusion limit is weaker. It is worth stressing that mUED predicts an enhancement for all channels for Higgs production by gluon fusion and decay while the vector boson fusion process WW/ZZ -> h -> AA is generically suppressed and WW/ZZ -> h -> WW*/ZZ* is standard. Therefore, as more 8 TeV LHC data becomes available, the information on individual Higgs boson production and decay processes provided by the CMS and ATLAS experiments can be effectively used to favour mUED or exclude it further.

A Search for the Higgs Boson in the $ZH$ Dilepton Decay Channel at CDF II  

SciTech Connect

This dissertation describes a search for the Standard Model Higgs boson produced in association with the Z boson via Higgs-strahlung at the CDF II detector at the Tevatron. At a Higgs boson mass between 100 GeV/c{sup 2} and 135 GeV/c{sup 2}, the primary Higgs decay mode is to a pair of b quarks. The associated Z boson can decay to a pair of electrons or muons, allowing detection of a final event signature of two visible leptons and two b quarks. This final state allows reduction of large QCD backgrounds compared to a hadronic Z boson decay, leading to a more sensitive search. To increase sensitivity, standard model matrix element probabilities for ZH signal and the dominant backgrounds are used as components to a likelihood fit in signal fraction. In 2.7 fb{sup -1} of CDF II data, we see no evidence of production of a Higgs boson with a mass between 100 GeV c{sup 2} and 150 GeV/c{sup 2}. Using the Feldman-Cousins technique to set a limit, at 95% coverage and a Higgs boson mass of 115 GeV/c{sup 2}, the median expected limit was 12.1 x {sigma}{sub SM} and a limit of 8.2 x {sigma}{sub SM} was observed, where {sigma}{sub SM} is the NNLO theoretical cross section of p{bar p} {yields}ZH {yields} l +l -b{bar b} at {radical}s=1.96 TeV . Cross section limits are computed at a range of Higgs boson mass values between 100 GeV/c {sup 2} and 150 GeV/c{sup 2}.

Searches at the Tevatron for a Low Mass Standard Model Higgs Boson  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We report on searches for the standard model Higgs boson with the CDF and D0 detectors using up to 2.7 fb$^{-1}$ of $\\sqrt s=$ 1.96 TeV proton anti-proton collisions at Fermilab's Tevatron. We focus on analyses that are sensitive to low mass Higgs production with $m_HHiggs boson production, and set upper limits on cross section times branching ratio. Several analyses improvements have increased the sensitivity to a Higgs signal faster than what is expected from increasing datasets alone.

Hadronic production of a Higgs boson and two jets at next-to-leading order  

SciTech Connect

We perform an update of the next-to-leading order calculation of the rate for Higgs boson production in association with two jets. Our new calculation incorporates the full analytic result for the one-loop virtual amplitude. This new theoretical information allows us to construct a code including the decay of the Higgs boson without incurring a prohibitive penalty in computer running time. Results are presented for the Tevatron, where implications for the Higgs search are sketched, and also for a range of scenarios at the LHC.

Higgs boson discovery through top-partners decays using jet substructure  

SciTech Connect

Top partners--vectorlike quarks which mix predominantly with the top quark, are simple extensions of the standard model present in many theories of new physics such as little Higgs models, topcolor models, and extra dimensions. Through renormalizable mixing with the top quark, these top partners inherit couplings to the Higgs boson. Higgs bosons produced from the decay of top partners are often highly boosted and ideal candidates for analyses based on jet substructure. Using substructure methods, we show that light Higgs bosons decaying to bb can be discovered at the 14 TeV LHC with less than 10 fb{sup -1} for top-partner masses up to 1 TeV.

Search for Charged Higgs Boson Decays of the Top Quark Using Hadronic tau Decays  

SciTech Connect

We present the result of a search for charged Higgs boson decays of the top quark, produced in p{bar p} collisions at {radical}s = 1.8 TeV. When the charged Higgs boson is heavy and decays to a {tau} lepton, which subsequently decays hadronically, the resulting events have a unique signature: large missing transverse energy and the low-charged-multiplicity {tau}. Data collected in 1992 and 1993 at the Collider Detector at Fermilab, corresponding to 18.7 {+-} 0.7 pb{sup -1}, exclude new regions of combined top quark and charged Higgs boson mass, in extensions to the standard model with two Higgs doublets.

These data are compared with the expectations of Standard Model processes for Higgs boson masses up to 120 GeV. A lower limit on the mass of the Standard Model Higgs boson of 112.0 GeV is set at the 95 % confidence level. The most significant high mass candidate is a Hnunu event. It has a reconstructed Higgs mass of 115 GeV and it was recorded at root(s)=206.4 GeV.

Gluon distribution functions and Higgs boson production at moderate transverse momentum  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

We investigate the gluon distribution functions and their contributions to the Higgs boson production in pp collisions in the transverse momentum-dependent factorization formalism. In addition to the usual azimuthal symmetric transverse momentum-dependent gluon distribution, we find that the azimuthal correlated gluon distribution also contributes to the Higgs boson production. This explains recent findings on the additional contribution in the transverse momentum resummation for the Higgs boson production as compared to that for electroweak boson production processes. We further examine the small-x naive k{sub t}-factorization in the dilute region and find that the azimuthal correlated gluon distribution contribution is consistently taken into account. The result agrees with the transverse momentum-dependent factorization formalism. We comment on the possible breakdown of the naive k{sub t}-factorization in the dense medium region, due to the unique behaviors for the gluon distributions.

Hiding a Heavy Higgs Boson at the 7 TeV LHC  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

A heavy Standard Model Higgs boson is not only disfavored by electroweak precision observables but is also excluded by direct searches at the 7 TeV LHC for a wide range of masses. Here, we examine scenarios where a heavy Higgs boson can be made consistent with both the indirect constraints and the direct null searches by adding only one new particle beyond the Standard Model. This new particle should be a weak multiplet in order to have additional contributions to the oblique parameters. If it is a color singlet, we find that a heavy Higgs with an intermediate mass of 200-300 GeV can decay into the new states, suppressing the branching ratios for the standard model modes, and thus hiding a heavy Higgs at the LHC. If the new particle is also charged under QCD, the Higgs production cross section from gluon fusion can be reduced significantly due to the new colored particle one-loop contribution. Current collider constraints on the new particles allow for viable parameter space to exist in order to hide a heavy Higgs boson. We categorize the general signatures of these new particles, identify favored regions of their parameter space and point out that discovering or excluding them at the LHC can provide important indirect information for a heavy Higgs. Finally, for a very heavy Higgs boson, beyond the search limit at the 7 TeV LHC, we discuss three additional scenarios where models would be consistent with electroweak precision tests: including an additional vector-like fermion mixing with the top quark, adding another U(1) gauge boson and modifying triple-gauge boson couplings.

MSSM Higgs boson searches at the Tevatron and the LHC: Impact of different benchmark scenarios  

SciTech Connect

The Higgs boson search has shifted from LEP2 to the Tevatron and will subsequently move to the LHC. The current limits from the Tevatron and the prospective sensitivities at the LHC are often interpreted in specific MSSM scenarios. For heavy Higgs boson production and subsequent decay into b{bar b} or {tau}{sup +}{tau}{sup -}, the present Tevatron data allow to set limits in the M{sub A}-tan {beta} plane for small M{sub A} and large tan {beta} values. Similar channels have been explored for the LHC, where the discovery reach extends to higher values of M{sub A} and smaller tan {beta}. Searches for MSSM charged Higgs bosons, produced in top decays or in association with top quarks, have also been investigated at the Tevatron and the LHC. We analyze the current Tevatron limits and prospective LHC sensitivities. We discuss how robust they are with respect to variations of the other MSSM parameters and possible improvements of the theoretical predictions for Higgs boson production and decay. It is shown that the inclusion of supersymmetric radiative corrections to the production cross sections and decay widths leads to important modifications of the present limits on the MSSM parameter space. The impact on the region where only the lightest MSSM Higgs boson can be detected at the LHC is also analyzed. We propose to extend the existing benchmark scenarios by including additional values of the higgsino mass parameter {mu}. This affects only slightly the search channels for a SM-like Higgs boson, while having a major impact on the searches for non-standard MSSM Higgs bosons.

We study the effect of a potential fourth fermion generation on the upper and lower Higgs boson mass bounds. This investigation is based on the numerical evaluation of a chirally invariant lattice Higgs-Yukawa model emulating the same Higgs-fermion coupling structure as in the Higgs sector of the electroweak Standard Model. In particular, the considered model obeys a Ginsparg-Wilson version of the underlying $SU(2)_L\\times U(1)_Y$ symmetry, being a global symmetry here due to the neglection of gauge fields in this model. We present our results on the modification of the upper and lower Higgs boson mass bounds induced by the presence of a hypothetical very heavy fourth quark doublet. Finally, we compare these findings to the standard scenario of three fermion generations.

Decoupling of Higgs boson from the inflationary stage of Universe evolution

The constraint on the mass of Higgs field in the Standard Model at the minimal interaction with the gravity is derived in the form of lower bound $m_H> 150$ GeV by the strict requirement of decoupling the Higgs boson from the inflation of early Universe: the inflation produced by the Higgs scalar could crucially destroy visible properties of large scale structure of Universe, while the large mass makes the Higgs particle not able to produce the inflation and shifts its cosmological role into the region of quantum gravity.

Fits to the precision electroweak data that include the NuTeV measurement are considered in family universal, anomaly free U(1) extensions of the Standard Model. In data sets from which the hadronic asymmetries are excluded, some of the Z{prime} models can double the predicted value of the Higgs boson mass, from {approx} 60 to {approx} 120 GeV, removing the tension with the LEP II lower bound, while also modestly improving the {chi}{sup 2} confidence level. The effect of the Z{prime} models on both m{sub H} and the {chi}{sup 2} confidence level is increased when the NuTeV measurement is included in the fit. Both the original NuTeV data and a revised estimate by the PDG are considered.

Suggestions for benchmark scenarios for MSSM Higgs Boson searches at hadron colliders.  

SciTech Connect

The Higgs boson search has shifted from LEP2 to the Tevatron and will subsequently move to the LHC. Due to the different initial states, the Higgs production and decay channels relevant for Higgs boson searches were different at LEP2 to what they are at hadron colliders. They suggest new benchmark scenarios for the MSSM Higgs boson search at hadron colliders that exemplify the phenomenology of different parts of the MSSM parameter space. Besides the m{sub h}{sup max} scenario and the no-mixing scenario used in the LEP2 Higgs boson searches, they propose two new scenarios. In one the main production channel at the LHC, gg {yields} h, is suppressed. In the other, important Higgs decay channels at the Tevatron and at the LCH, h {yields} b{bar b} and h {yields} {tau}{sup +}{tau}{sup -}, are suppressed. All scenarios evade the LEP2 constraints for nearly the whole M{sub A}-tan {beta}-plane.

Production of a Higgs boson plus two jets in hadronic collisions  

SciTech Connect

We consider the production of a standard model Higgs boson accompanied by two jets in hadronic collisions. We work in the limit that the top quark is much heavier than the Higgs boson and use an effective Lagrangian for the interactions of gluons with the Higgs boson. In addition to the previously computed four-gluon process, we compute the amplitudes involving two quarks, two gluons, and the Higgs boson and those involving four quarks and the Higgs boson. We exhibit the form of our results in the small-p{sub H} and factorization limits. We present numerical results for {radical}(S)=14 TeV and {radical}(S)=2 TeV. We find that the dominant processes are gg{r_arrow}ggH and qg{r_arrow}qgH with the former (latter) contributing about 60{percent} (40{percent}) of the cross section at {radical}(S)=14 TeV and the two processes each contributing about half the cross section at {radical}(S)=2 TeV. All other processes are negligible at both energies. {copyright} {ital 1997} {ital The American Physical Society}

Branching ratio for a light Higgs boson to decay into. mu. /sup +/. mu. /sup -/ pairs  

SciTech Connect

We evaluate the effects of final-state interactions on the decay of a light Higgs boson to two pions. Although the formalism is completely general and can be applied to any strong-interaction decay mode of the Higgs boson, we are particularly interested in the regime where the Higgs-boson mass m/sub h/ satisfies the constraint 2m/sub ..pi../Higgs boson are to ..mu../sup +/..mu../sup -/ and two pions. Final-state interactions tend to enhance the two-pion mode and thus suppress the branching ratio to two muons. Since the two-muon mode is the cleanest signature for identifying the Higgs boson, it is important to obtain a good determination of this branching ratio. We find B(h..--> mu../sup +/..mu../sup -/) approx. =0/sup -2/--10/sup -1/.

A Minimal Spontaneously Broken Hidden Sector and its Impact on Higgs Boson Physics at the Large Hadron Collider  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Little experimental data bears on the question of whether there is a spontaneously broken hidden sector that has no Standard Model quantum numbers. Here we discuss the prospects of finding evidence for such a hidden sector through renormalizable interactions of the Standard Model Higgs boson with a Higgs boson of the hidden sector. We find that the lightest Higgs boson in this scenario has smaller rates in standard detection channels, and it can have a sizeable invisible final state branching fraction. Details of the hidden sector determine whether the overall width of the lightest state is smaller or larger than the Standard Model width. We compute observable rates, total widths and invisible decay branching fractions within the general framework. We also introduce the ``A-Higgs Model'', which corresponds to the limit of a hidden sector Higgs boson weakly mixing with the Standard Model Higgs boson. This model has only one free parameter in addition to the mass of the light Higgs state and it illustrates most of the generic phenomenology issues, thereby enabling it to be a good benchmark theory for collider searches. We end by presenting an analogous supersymmetry model with similar phenomenology, which involves hidden sector Higgs bosons interacting with MSSM Higgs bosons through D-terms.

Search for the Higgs Boson in the ZH->vvbb Channel at CDF Run II

This analysis focuses on a low mass Higgs boson search with 1.7 fb{sup -1} of data. The focus is on Higgs events in which it is produced in association with a W or Z boson. Such events are expected to leave a distinct signature of large missing transverse energy for either a Z {yields} {nu}{nu} decay or a leptonic W decay in which the lepton goes undetected, as well as jets with taggable secondary vertices from the H {yields} b{bar B} decay. Utilizing a new track based technique for removing QCD multi-jet processes as well as a neural network discriminant, an expected limit of 8.3 times the Standard Model prediction at the 95% CL for a Higgs boson mass of 115 GeV/c{sup 2} is calculated, with an observed limit of 8.0*SM.

Prospects to Measure the Higgs Boson Mass and Cross Section in ee-->ZH Using the Recoil Mass Spectrum

The process ee-->ZH allows to measure the Higgs boson in the recoil mass spectrum against the Z boson without any assumptions on the Higgs boson decay. We performed a full simulation and reconstruction of ee-->ZH using the MOKKA and MARLIN packages describing the LDC detector. The Z is reconstructed from its decays into electrons and muons. The mass of the Higgs boson is set to 120 GeV. Assuming a centre-of-mass energy of 250 GeV and an integrated luminosity of 50/fb the Higgs boson mass and the Higgs-strahlung cross section can be measured with a precision of 120 MeV and 9%, respectively.

E-Print Network (OSTI)

A measurement of WW production in pp collisions at sqrt(s) = 7 TeV and a search for the Higgs boson are reported. The WW candidates are selected in events with two leptons, either electrons or muons. The measurement is performed using LHC data recorded with the CMS detector, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 36 inverse picobarns. The pp to WW cross section is measured to be 41.1 +/- 15.3 (stat) +/- 5.8 (syst) +/- 4.5 (lumi) pb, consistent with the standard model prediction. Limits on WW gamma and WWZ anomalous triple gauge couplings are set. The search for the standard model Higgs boson in the WW decay mode does not reveal any evidence of excess above backgrounds. Limits are set on the production of the Higgs boson in the context of the standard model and in the presence of a sequential fourth family of fermions with high masses. In the latter context, a Higgs boson with mass between 144 and 207 GeV is ruled out at 95% confidence level.

Higgs Inflation at NNLO after the Boson Discovery  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We obtain the bound on the Higgs and top masses to have Higgs inflation (where the Higgs field is non-minimally coupled to gravity) at full next-to-next-to-leading order (NNLO). Comparing the result obtained with the experimental values of the relevant parameters we find some tension, which we quantify. Higgs inflation, however, is not excluded at the moment as the measured values of the Higgs and top masses are close enough to the bound once experimental and theoretical uncertainties are taken into account.
