Higgs form factors in associated production

Abstract

We further develop a form factor formalism characterizing anomalous interactions of the Higgs-like boson ( h) to massive electroweak vector bosons ( V) and generic bilinear fermion states . Employing this approach, we examine the sensitivity of pp → → V h associated production to physics beyond the Standard Model, and compare it to the corresponding sensitivity of h → V decays. We discuss how determining the Vh invariant-mass distribution in associated production at LHC is a key ingredient for model-independent determinations of hV interactions. We also provide a general discussion about the power counting of the form factor's momentum dependence in a generic effective field theory approach, analyzing in particular how effective theories based on a linear and non-linear realization of the SU(2)L × U(1)Y gauge symmetry map into the form factor formalism. We point out how measurements of the differential spectra characterizing h → V decays and pp → → Vh associated production could be the leading indication of the presence of a nonlinear realization of the SU(2)L × U(1)Y gauge symmetry.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
