Title: Potential for measuring the H{sup {+-}}W{sup {+-}}Z{sup 0} vertex from WZ fusion at the CERN Large Hadron Collider

Abstract

We investigate the possibility of measuring the H{sup {+-}}W{sup {+-}}Z{sup 0} vertex from the single H{sup {+-}} production process via WZ fusion at the CERN Large Hadron Collider (LHC). This vertex strongly depends on the structure of the Higgs sector in various new physics scenarios, so that its measurement can be useful to distinguish the models. A signal and background simulation under the expected detector performance at the LHC is done for the processes of pp{yields}W{sup {+-}}Z{sup 0}X{yields}H{sup {+-}}X{yields}tbX and pp{yields}W{sup {+-}}Z{sup 0}X{yields}H{sup {+-}}X{yields}W{sup {+-}}Z{sup 0}X, and the required magnitudes of the H{sup {+-}}W{sup {+-}}Z{sup 0} vertex for observation are evaluated. It is found that although the loop-induced H{sup {+-}}W{sup {+-}}Z{sup 0} vertex in multi-Higgs doublet models cannot be measurable, the latter process can be useful to test the model with a real and a complex triplets.

  • In a recent study by Dittmar and Dreiner it was shown that with appropriate selection cuts the signature of events containing two charged leptons and missing energy represents the best chance of detecting the standard model Higgs scalar in the mass range between 155 and 180 GeV, the primary decay of the Higgs boson being into pairs of charged gauge bosons. The largest background to this channel is due to irreducible W{sup +}W{sup {minus}}X production. In the present paper we calculate the contribution of events of the type bg{r_arrow}tW{sup {plus_minus}}{r_arrow}bW{sup +}W{sup {minus}}{r_arrow}bscr(l){sup +}scr(l){sup {prime}{minus}}{nu}{sub scr(l)}{bar {nu}}{sub scr(l){sup {prime}}}, which havemore » not been considered yet within the new selection strategy. We show that the yield of this background is rather large, at the level of that produced by W{sup +}W{sup {minus}}, t{bar t}, or tbW{sup {plus_minus}} events, and thus needs to be incorporated in future experimental analyses. However, we find that its inclusion will not spoil the possibilities of Higgs boson detection in the above-mentioned channel at the CERN Large Hadron Collider. {copyright} {ital 1997} {ital The American Physical Society}« less
  • We present the calculations of the complete next-to-leading order (NLO) QCD corrections (including supersymmetric QCD) to the inclusive total cross sections of the associated production processes pp{yields}A{sup 0}Z{sup 0}+X in the minimal supersymmetric standard model at the CERN Large Hadron Collider. Both the dimensional regularization scheme and the dimensional reduction scheme are used to organize the calculations, which yield the same NLO rates. The NLO correction can either enhance or reduce the total cross sections, but it generally efficiently reduces the dependence of the total cross sections on the renormalization/factorization scale. We also examine the uncertainty of the total crossmore » sections due to the parton distribution function uncertainties.« less
  • We calculate the SUSY-QCD corrections to the inclusive total cross sections of the associated production processes pp{yields}W{sup {+-}}H{sup {+-}}+X in the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model(MSSM) at the CERN Large Hadron Collider(LHC). The SUSY-QCD corrections can increase and decrease the total cross sections depending on the choice of the SUSY parameters. When {mu}<0 the SUSY-QCD corrections increase the leading-order (LO) total cross sections significantly for large tan{beta} ({approx}40), which can exceed 10% and have the opposite sign with respect to the QCD and the SUSY-EW corrections, and thus cancel with them to some extent. Moreover, we also investigate the effects ofmore » the SUSY-QCD on the differential distribution of cross sections in transverse momentum p{sub T} and rapidity Y of W-boson, and the invariant mass M{sub W{sup +}}{sub H{sup -}}.« less
  • Electroweak bosons produced in conjunction with jets in high-energy collider experiments is one of the principal final-state channels that can be used to test the accuracy of perturbative quantum chromodynamics calculations and to assess the potential to uncover new physics through comparison between data and theory. In this article we present results for the Z{sup 0}/{gamma}*+jet production cross sections at the CERN Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at leading and next-to-leading orders. In proton-proton reactions we elucidate up to O(G{sub F{alpha}s}{sup 2}) the constraints that jet tagging via the Z{sup 0}/{gamma}* decay dileptons provides on the momentum distribution of jets. Inmore » nucleus-nucleus reactions we demonstrate that tagged jets can probe important aspects of the dynamics of quark and gluon propagation in hot and dense nuclear matter and characterize the properties of the medium-induced parton showers in ways not possible with more inclusive measurements. Finally, we present specific predictions for the anticipated suppression of the Z{sup 0}/{gamma}{sup *}+jet production cross section in the quark-gluon plasma that is expected to be created in central lead-lead collisions at the LHC relative to the naive superposition of independent nucleon-nucleon scatterings.« less
  • If the CERN LHC discovers a Z{sup '}-like state, the extraction of its couplings to the particles of the standard model becomes mandatory in order to determine the nature of the underlying new physics theory. It has been well known for some time that the direct measurements performed at the LHC in the Drell-Yan channel cannot determine these parameters uniquely in a model-independent manner even if large integrated luminosities ({approx}100 fb{sup -1}) become available and the Z{sup '} is relatively light < or approx. 1.5 TeV. Here we examine the possibility that a proposed e{sub L,R}{sup {+-}}p collider upgrade atmore » the LHC, the LHeC, with {radical}(s)=1.5-2 TeV could be helpful with such coupling determinations in the years before a linear collider is constructed. We show that the polarization and charge asymmetries constructed from the cross sections for these processes can be useful in this regard depending upon the specific values of the particular Z{sup '} model parameters.« less
