MultiHiggs doublet models: the Higgsfermion couplings and their sum rules
Abstract
This is the second of a series of papers that explores the physical parameterization, sum rules and unitarity bounds arising from a nonminimal scalar sector of the Standard Model (SM) that consists of N Higgs doublets. In this paper, we focus on the structure and implication of the Yukawa interactions that couple the N scalar doublets to the SM fermions. We employ the charged Higgs basis, which is defined as the basis of scalar fields such that the neutral scalar field vacuum expectation value resides entirely in one of the N scalar doublet fields, and the charged components of the remaining N – 1 scalar doublet fields are the physical (masseigenstate) charged Higgs fields. Based on the structure of the Yukawa Lagrangian of the model (and as a consequence of treelevel unitarity), one may deduce numerous sum rules, several of which have not appeared previously in the literature. Furthermore, these sum rules can be used to uncover intimate relations between the structure of the Higgsfermion couplings and the scalar/gauge couplings. In particular, we show that the approximate alignment limit, in which the W ^{+} W ^{–} and ZZ couplings to the observed Higgs boson are approximately SMlike, imposes significant constraintsmore »
