Symmetries of two Higgs doublet model and CP violation
Abstract
We use the invariance of a physical picture under a change of Lagrangian, the reparameterization invariance in the space of Lagrangians and its particular casethe rephrasing invariancefor analysis of the twoHiggsdoublet extension of the standard model. We found that some parameters of theory like tan{beta} are reparameterization dependent and therefore cannot be fundamental. We use the Z{sub 2} symmetry of the Lagrangian, which prevents a {phi}{sub 1}{r_reversible}{phi}{sub 2} transition, and the different levels of its violation, soft and hard, to describe the physical content of the model. In general, the broken Z{sub 2} symmetry allows for a CP violation in the physical Higgs sector. We argue that the twoHiggsdoublet model with a soft breaking of Z{sub 2} symmetry is a natural model in the description of electroweak symmetry breaking. To simplify the analysis, we choose among different forms of Lagrangian describing the same physical reality a specific one, in which the vacuum expectation values of both Higgs fields are real. A possible CP violation in the Higgs sector is described by using a twostep procedure with the first step identical to a diagonalization of the mass matrix for CPeven fields in the CPconserving case.

We show that for small {nu} some Higgs bosons can be heavywith mass up to about 0.6 TeVwithout violating of the unitarity constraints. If {nu} is large, all Higgs bosons except one can be arbitrarily heavy. We discuss, in particular, main features of this case, which corresponds for {nu}{yields}{infinity} to a decoupling of heavy Higgs bosons. In the model II for Yukawa interactions we obtain the set of relations among the couplings to gauge bosons and to fermions which allows us to analyze different physical situations (including CP violation) in terms of these very couplings, instead of the parameters of Lagrangian.},

We carry out a detailed analysis of the general two Higgs doublet model with CP violation. We describe two different parametrizations of this model, and then study the Higgs boson masses and the trilinear Higgs couplings for these two parametrizations. Within a rather general model, we find that the trilinear Higgs couplings have a significant dependence on the details of the model, even when the lightest Higgs boson mass is taken to be a fixed parameter. We include radiative corrections in the oneloop effective potential approximation in our analysis of the Higgs boson masses and the Higgs trilinear couplings. Themore »

Neutral Higgs production on LHC in the twoHiggsdoublet model with spontaneous CP violation
Spontaneous CP violation motivates the introduction of two Higgs doublets in the electroweak theory, such a simple extension of the standard model has five physical Higgs bosons and rich CPviolating sources. Exploration on more than one Higgs boson is a direct evidence for new physics beyond the standard model. The neutral Higgs production at LHC is investigated in such a general twoHiggsdoublet model with spontaneous CP violation, it is shown that the production cross section and decays of the neutral Higgs boson can significantly be different from the predictions from the standard model. 
Generalized CP symmetries and special regions of parameter space in the twoHiggsdoublet model
We consider the impact of imposing generalized CP symmetries on the Higgs sector of the twoHiggsdoublet model, and identify three classes of symmetries. Two of these classes constrain the scalar potential parameters to an exceptional region of parameter space, which respects either a Z{sub 2} discrete flavor symmetry or a U(1) symmetry. We exhibit a basisinvariant quantity that distinguishes between these two possible symmetries. We also show that the consequences of imposing these two classes of CP symmetry can be achieved by combining Higgs family symmetries, and that this is not possible for the usual CP symmetry. We comment onmore » 
[ital CP] violation in the decay [ital b][r arrow][ital s][gamma] in the twoHiggsdoublet model
In the most general twoHiggsdoublet model with an approximate family symmetry and [ital CP] violation originating solely from the relative phase of two vacuum expectation values, [ital CP] asymmetry in the decay [ital b][r arrow][ital s][gamma] may arise from the [ital CP] violation of the charged Higgs boson interactions with fermions. This asymmetry may be larger than in the standard model and can lie between 10[sup [minus]2] and 10[sup [minus]1]. The decay rate of [ital b][r arrow][ital s][gamma] is allowed to be smaller or larger than in the standard model. 
{ital CP} violation in the twoHiggsdoublet model: An example
In a general twoscalardoublet model without fermions, there is a unique source of {ital CP} violation, {ital J}{sub 1}, in the gauge interactions of the scalars. It arises in the mixing of the three neutral physical scalars {ital X}{sub 1}, {ital X}{sub 2}, and {ital X}{sub 3}. $CP violation may be observed via different decay rates for {ital X}{sub 1}{r_arrow}{ital H}{sup +}{ital W}{sup {minus}} and {ital X}{sub 1}{r_arrow}{ital H}{sup {minus}}{ital W}{sup +} (or, alternatively, for {ital H}{sup +}{r_arrow}{ital X}{sub 1}{ital W}{sup +} and {ital H}{sup {minus}}{r_arrow}{ital X}{sub 1}{ital W}{sup {minus}}, depending on which decays are kinematically allowed).
