Mass effects in the Higgs-gluon coupling: boosted vs. off-shell production


Buschmann, Malte; Gonçalves, Dorival; Kuttimalai, Silvan; Schönherr, Marek; Krauss, Frank; Plehn, Tilman (2015). Mass effects in the Higgs-gluon coupling: boosted vs. off-shell production. Journal of High Energy Physics, 2015(02):38.

Abstract

In the upcoming LHC run we will be able to probe the structure of the loopinduced Higgs-gluon coupling through kinematics. First, we establish state-of-the-art simulations with up to two jets to next-to-leading order including top mass effects. They allow us to search for deviations from the low-energy limits in boosted Higgs production. In addition, the size of the top mass effects suggests that they should generally be included in Higgs studies at the LHC. Next, we show how off-shell Higgs production with a decay to four leptons is sensitive to the same top mass effects. We compare the potential of both methods based on the same top-Higgs Lagrangian. Finally, we comment on related model assumptions required for a Higgs width measurement.

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.
