Title: ISR effects for resonant Higgs production at future lepton colliders

We study the effects of the initial state radiation on the $s$-channel Higgs boson resonant production at $$\mu^+\mu^-$$ and $e^+e^-$ colliders by convoluting with the beam energy spread profile of the collider and the Breit-Wigner resonance profile of the signal. We assess their impact on both the Higgs signal and SM backgrounds for the leading decay channels $$h\rightarrow b\bar b,\ WW^*$$. In conclusion, our study improves the existing analyses of the proposed future resonant Higgs factories and provides further guidance for the accelerator designs with respect to the physical goals.
