Title: Constraints from triple gauge couplings on vectorlike leptons

Here, we study the contributions of colorless vectorlike fermions to the triple gauge couplings W +W -γ and W +W -Z 0. We consider models in which their coupling to the Standard Model Higgs boson is allowed or forbidden by quantum numbers. We assess the sensitivity of the future accelerators FCC-ee, ILC, and CLIC to the parameters of these models, assuming they will be able to constrain the anomalous triple gauge couplings with precision δ κV~O(10 -4), V = γ,Z 0. We show that the combination of measurements at different center-of-mass energies helps to improve the sensitivity to the contribution of vectorlike fermions, in particular when they couple to the Higgs. In fact, the measurements at the FCC-ee and, especially, the ILC and the CLIC, may turn the triple gauge couplings into a new set of precision parameters able to constrain the models better than the oblique parameters or the H → γγ decay, even assuming the considerable improvement of the latter measurements achievable at the new machines.
