Title:Probing the Higgs self-coupling at the LHC 在LHC上探索希格斯粒子的自耦合

The discovery of the Higgs boson at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) in the summer of 2012 has experimentally confirmed the Brout–Englert–Higgs (BEH) mechanism of electroweak symmetry breaking and mass generation. The BEH mechanism not only predicts the existence of a massive scalar particle, the Higgs boson, but also requires this scalar particle to couple to itself, which is not observed yet. Therefore, searching for the production of double Higgs bosons and measuring the Higgs boson self-coupling is a crucial examination of the BEH mechanism. Any deviation from the Standard Model predictions opens a window to new physics. Moreover, the form of the Higgs field potential, which generates the Higgs boson self-coupling after electroweak symmetry breaking, can have important cosmological implications for the early evolution of the Universe, involving, such as the predictions for vacuum stability and the models in which the Higgs boson acts as the inflation field. This talk will discuss the current status of probing the Higgs self-coupling with double Higgs boson searches and single Higgs boson electroweak correction measurements at the LHC.

大型强子对撞机LHC上希格斯粒子的发现在实验上基本确立了电弱对称破缺和质量起源的Brout–Englert–Higgs(BEH)机制。BEH机制不仅预测了希格斯粒子,也要求该粒子与自身有耦合,而后者尚无直接实验观测。因此,寻找双希格斯粒子和测量希格斯自耦合是对BEH机制的深度检验。任何超出标准模型的迹象都暗示新物理的存在。希格斯自耦合是希格斯场势能结构的关键参数,对预期的真空稳定至关重要,并通过inflation field等模型对宇宙学的早期演化有重要启示。本报告介绍LHC上双希格斯粒子的实验探索、单希格斯粒子电弱修正的测量以及对希格斯自耦合的观测约束。

报告人简介: Xiaohu SUN, graduated from Shandong University, started his journey of particle physics at Shandong University, and got his PhD from the University of Grenoble. He performed postdoctoral researches at CAS/IHEP, the University of Alberta, and the University of Manchester. Now he is working as a researcher at Peking University. He has been working at the LHC with the ATLAS and CMS detectors for more than 10 years. His work ranges from single top-quark measurements, Beyond-the-Standard-Model Higgs searches, electroweak new physics studies, the searches of double Higgs bosons, to detector developments for the luminosity measurement, whose publications have been cited more than 700 times. His recent highlights include: the first search of double Higgs and the precision measurement of the Higgs electroweak correction at 13 TeV, which provides the most precise measurements of the double Higgs cross section limits and the Higgs self-coupling measurements at that moment. He delivered a plenary talk with these high-quality results on behalf of the ATLAS and CMS collaborations at the LHCP conference. He has been assigned as many important roles including analysis responsible person, LHCHXSWG subgroup convener and the run coordinator of the forward detector.
