We analyse the $cH$ associated production channel at the LHC and HL-LHC stage, with ML techniques to separate the different yukawa dependent contribution and analyze the respective contribution from the main observable quantitatively. We give sensitivity bound on the charm yukawa absolute value as well as on its possible CP phase.

We consider the next-to-leading order electroweak corrections to the Higgs boson pair and Higgs plus jet productions in gluon fusion. This requires the computation of two-loop four-point amplitudes with massive internal particles such as top quarks, Higgs and gauge bosons. We perform analytic calculations both in the high-energy and large top-quark mass limits. In particular, we show that our...

We calculate the next-to-leading order electroweak corrections proportional to the Higgs trilinear self-coupling for Higgs boson pair production in gluon fusion.

In the Standard Model, the ground state of the Higgs field is not found at zero but instead corresponds to one of the degenerate solutions minimising the Higgs potential. In turn, this spontaneous electroweak symmetry breaking provides a mechanism for the mass generation of nearly all fundamental particles. While the Standard Model makes a definite prediction for the Higgs boson self-coupling...

With the huge amount of data collected at the LHC, very detailed measurements of the properties of the Higgs boson can be performed, exploiting a variety of final states and production modes and probing different regions of the phase space with increasing precision. In this talk we present an overview of the most recent differential and fiducial Higgs boson cross section measurements from CMS,...

Recent results on studies of Higgs boson pair (HH) production are presented, exploiting data collected in Run 2 of the LHC by the CMS experiment. A variety of Higgs boson decay channels will be studied, ranging from those with large branching fractions (combinations of H->bb and H->VV) to thos with smaller branching fractions. Limits are presented on nonresonant HH production via gluon-gluon...

We propose to test the charm (and bottom) quark Yukawa coupling at the HL-LHC and future hadron colliders with the Higgs boson decay to quarkonia via the fragmentation mechanism. Using the non-relativistic quantum chromodynamics (NRQCD), we study the quarkonia production via SM Higgs decay through both the color-singlet and color-octet channels. Our study provides quantitative statements on...

The discovery of the Higgs boson with the mass of about 125 GeV completed the particle content predicted by the Standard Model. Even though this model is well established and consistent with many measurements, it is not capable of solely explaining some observations. Many extensions of the Standard Model addressing such shortcomings introduce additional Higgs-like bosons. The current status of...

Search for a standard model-like Higgs boson in the mass range between 70 and 110 GeV in the diphoton final state in proton-proton collisions at √s=13 TeV with CMS

We suggest an explanation for and explore the consequences of the excess around 95 GeV in the di-photon and di-tau invariant mass distributions recently reported by the CMS collaboration at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), together with the discrepancy that has long been observed at the Large Electron-Positron (LEP) collider in the $b\bar b$ invariant mass. Interestingly, the most recent...

The CMS collaboration has reported the di-tau and also di-photon excesses with the local significance of $\approx 3\sigma$ levels where the invariant mass is m = 95–100 GeV. These excesses can be interpreted as a light scalar boson that couples to the third-generation fermions, particularly top and tau. Based on the simplest model that can account for the CMS di-tau excess, we evaluate...

Searches for additional Higgs bosons with mass above 125 GeV are presented, using the Run-2 data set collected by the CMS experiment. A variety of processes and final states (A->tautau/bb, Z* -> h/H A, A->Zh, ...) are discussed.

We discuss rare Higgs boson production modes studied with the CMS experiment. Rare production modes where the Higgs boson is produced in association with a quark provide a channel to test Higgs Yukawa couplings independently from the Higgs boson decay. Such searches have been carried out by the CMS Collaboration using the dataset collected by the CMS experiment, exploiting a variety of Higgs...

Very detailed measurements of Higgs boson coupling and kinematical properties can be performed using the data collected at LHC up to now, exploiting a variety of final states and production modes, probing different regions of the phase space with increasing precision. These measurements can then be combined to exploit the specific strength of each channel, thus providing the most stringent...

Search for light (within the mass range 84–200 GeV) doubly-charged Higgs bosons decaying into a pair of $W$-bosons has been deemed challenging using the conventional LHC searches with leptons, jets and missing transverse momentum in the final state. Such Higgses together with slightly heavier singly-charged and neutral Higgses, when arranged in an $SU(2)_L$ triplet as in the type-II see-saw...

The best possible understanding of the Higgs boson and its interactions is achieved via combining measurements of the different Higgs boson production modes and decay channels. This talk focuses on the results of the latest Higgs boson combinations performed by the CMS experiment. The results are extracted using the full CMS Run 2 dataset. After detailing the procedure for the combinations,...

Most of the current experimental searches for charged Higgs bosons at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) concentrate upon the tb and τν decay channels. In the present study, we analyze instead the feasibility of the bosonic decay channel W±∗h, with the charged gauge boson being off-shell and h being a neutral light Higgs boson, which decays predominantly into b¯b. We perform a Monte Carlo (MC)...

I will present predictions for jet veto resummation in the Higgs+jet process with NNLL'+NNLO uncertainties. These are an important input to facilitate comparison of theory with data via the Simplified Template Cross Section (STXS) framework. The resummation has been achieved in the framework of soft-collinear effective theory, using an extension of a factorisation theorem first studied by Liu...

In the Standard Model, one doublet of complex scalar fields is the minimal content of the Higgs sector in order to achieve spontaneous electroweak symmetry breaking. However, several theories beyond the Standard Model predict a non-minimal Higgs sector and introduce charged scalar fields that do not exist in the Standard Model. As a result, singly- and doubly-charged Higgs bosons would be a...

The Higgs boson decay to two W bosons provides the largest branching fraction among bosonic decays, and can be used to perform some of the most precise measurements of the Higgs boson production cross sections. This talk presents Higgs boson measurements by the ATLAS experiment in the WW decay channel within the Simplified Template Cross-section (STXS) framework, targeting the gluon-gluon...

Searches are being carried out at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) for the decay of the CP-odd scalar $(A^{0})$ in Two-Higgs-Doublet Models (2HDMs) with Natural Flavour Conservation (NFC) in the channel $A^{0}\rightarrow h^{0}Z^{*}$ (with $m_{h^{0}}=125 GeV$ and Z on-shell). In the absence of any signal, limits on the parameter space of $[tan\beta , cos(\beta -\alpha ), m_{A^{0}}]$in each 2HDM...

In this talk we present measurements of Higgs boson production cross sections with the CMS experiment, using the decay channels H->ZZ, H->WW, and H->gammagamma. Both inclusive and differential cross section measurements will be discussed

We calculate the total cross-section and differential distributions of Higgs boson pair production and decay to $b\bar{b}\gamma\gamma$ at NLO in QCD.

We present the latest results on resonant searches for di-Higgs production from the CMS experiment. The results are presented as upper limits on the production of a heavy resonance that decays to two 125 GeV Higgs bosons. We will also cover searches for a heavy resonance decaying to a 125 GeV Higgs boson and another heavy resonance.

Several physics scenarios beyond the Standard Model predict the existence of new particles that can subsequently decay into a pair of bosons. These include pairs of SM-like Higgs bosons (HH) as well as asymmetric decays into two scalars of different masses (SH). This talk summarises ATLAS searches for resonant HH and SH production with LHC Run 2 data. A search for a high-mass Zgamma resonance...

we would like to introduce our recent work about BSM Higgs searches at LHC, in the framework of 2HDM. The study will include both the neutral and charged Higgs studies. including various BSM Higgs production and decay channels, as well as the exotic Higgs decays.

The study of Higgs boson production in association with one or two top quarks provides a key window into the properties of the two heaviest fundamental particles in the Standard Model, and in particular into their couplings. This talk presents property measurement of Higgs boson, in particular cross section and CP nature, with tH and ttH production in pp collisions collected at 13 TeV with the...

We present CMS searches for exotic decays of the Higgs boson with the CMS experiment. Searches where the 125 GeV Higgs boson decays into two low-mass scalars are discussed. We also present searches for the 125 GeV Higgs boson decaying to a Z boson and a light scalar.

Full one-loop QCD and electroweak corrections to the Higgs-starhlung process at the LHC, $pp \to W^{\pm} H, ZH$ in the inert doublet model (IDM) are studied. Taking all available constraints on the parameter space of the IDM, we consider the case where the IDM qualifies as a good dark matter (DM) candidate within the freeze-out mechanism and the case where DM constraints are not imposed, hence...

The detailed investigation of the production and decay the Standard Model Higgs boson and Top quark, as well as the search for new Higgs resonances, remain among the major research topics at the Large Hadron Collider and the future high-energy lepton colliders. The talk will be devoted to the presentation of the perturbative results for the decay of Higgs and Top (in QCD) at the level of...

Searches for dark matter in final states with invisible particles recoiling against a Higgs boson are presented. Various final states, topologies and kinematic variables are explored. In this talk, we focus on the recent CMS results obtained using the full Run-II dataset collected at the LHC.

Weakly-Interacting Massive Particle (WIMP), a strong candidate for dark matter (DM), faces the dilemma of being severely constrained by DM direct detection experiments when trying to explain DM relic abundance.

One WIMP model that avoids this dilemma is the pseudo-Nambu-Goldstone dark matter model (pNGB DM model). The pNGB DM requires explicit global symmetry breaking, but all realistic and...

Unsatisfied with model-building opportunities offered by the 2HDM or singlet extensions, many researchers turn to more elaborate Higgs sectors. 3HDMs offer to a bSM model-builder many novel options absent in the 2HDM. One of them is CP4, the CP symmetry of order 4, physically distinct from the usual CP. Imposing CP4 on the 3HDM leads to remarkable connections between the scalar and Yukawa...

CP4 3HDM is a three-Higgs-doublet model based on the CP symmetry of order 4 (CP4) without any accidental symmetries. Imposing CP4 leads to remarkable connections between the scalar and Yukawa sectors and unavoidably generates tree-level Lepton Flavor-Violation (LFV). It remains unclear whether LFV can be sufficiently suppressed in the CP4 3HDM. Here we explore which CP4-invariant scenarios can...

Measurement of ttH and tH Production in the H to bb Decay Channel at CMS

Multi-Higgs-doublet models equipped with global symmetry groups, either exact or softly bro- ken, offer a rich framework for constructions beyond the Standard Model and lead to remarkable phenomenological consequences. Knowing all the symmetry options within each class of models can guide its phenomenological exploration, as confirmed by the vast literature on the two- and three-Higgs-doublet...

This talk presents the interpretation of the ATLAS combined Higgs boson couplings measurements in the context of several models of physics beyond the Standard Model SM). These models include Two-higgs-doublet models, the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model, and general descriptions of deviations from SM predictions based on the Standard Model effective field theory framework. The results are...

Energy staged data collection, polarization of both beams and capability of a linear machine to reach TeV center-of-mass energies makes ILC ideal option for a future Higgs factory. It offers unique sensitivity to probe New Physic's deviations from the Standard Model predictions in the Higgs sector. Coupling precisions of the order of 1% and better are necessary to pin down a concrete New...

We study the electroweak dilepton production with two forward jets at the LHC, aiming to measure the anomalous triple gauge couplings in the Effective Field Theory (EFT) approach. This process exhibits a distinctive feature, namely, the interference between Standard Model (SM) and beyond the SM is resurrected in the inclusive cross section of the full amplitude, including two forward jets. As...

We study Higgs boson production associated with single top or anti-top via t-channel weak boson exchange at the LHC. The process is an ideal probe of the top quark Yukawa coupling, because we can measure the relative phase of htt and hWW couplings, thanks to the significant interference between the two amplitudes. Both the azimuthal asymmetry and the polarization perpendicular to the...

A search for Higgs boson anomalous couplings is carried out using the CMS Run 2 dataset. Anomalous couplings of the Higgs boson to vector bosons (HVV) and gluons (Hgg) are considered, including CP violating effects. The ggH, VBF, and VH production modes of the Higgs boson are targeted. Kinematic information from associated jets is combined using matrix element techniques to increase...

With the current precision of LHC experiments, it is still possible that the 125 GeV mass eigenstate of the Higgs boson is a CP violating mixture of CP eigenstates of opposite parity. We investigate the possibility to measure CPV mixing angle in such scenario, assuming CP-odd admixture of up to 10%. Polarized ILC data are simulated employing the ILD detector, at 1 TeV center of mass energy. ...

We present an effective field theory study of $WW$ scattering into two, three and four Higgs bosons in the final state. We consider the general HEFT approach and then particularize it for SMEFT scenarios. We make use of the equivalence theorem and improve previous results on $WW\to n h$ cross sections, showing several important cancellations and simplifications which allows us to display these...

It has been confirmed experimentally the existence of a mass gap between Standard Model and eventual New Physics states. Consequently, the use of effective approaches to search for signals of Physics Beyond the Standard Model is very engaging. We consider a non-linear realizations of the electroweak symmetry breaking, where the Higgs is a singlet with free couplings and the SM fields are also...

We present prospects for Higgs boson measurements at the HL-LHC with the CMS experiment. In particular we focus on resonant and non-resonant di-Higgs searches. For the case of a heavy resonance, we also cover the HL-LHC prospects for decays to a 125 GeV Higgs boson and another heavy resonance.

Assuming that the Higgs potential arises from a strong BSM sector and that this sector lies in the same universality class as non-perturbative QCD, we show that several model approaches to strongly coupled field dynamics (AdS/QCD, Nambu-Jona-Lasinio model, spectral sum rules) indicate on a possible existence of a Higgs-like scalar particle h’ with the mass near 0.5 TeV. We suggest also that...

The physics program of the Higgs factory will focus on measurements of the 125 GeV Higgs boson, with the Higgs-strahlung process being the dominant production channel at 250 GeV. However, production of extra light scalars is still not excluded by the existing experimental data, provided their coupling to the gauge bosons is sufficiently suppressed. Fermion couplings of such a scalar could also...

In this talk, we present a novel model that extends the standard model (SM) by introducing a $SU(2)_L$ singlet vectorlike quark (VLQ) charged under an additional local $U(1)_d$ symmetry group, along with the associated gauge boson, known as the dark photon. Owing to the additional $U(1)_d$ charge, the model predicts a suppressed branching ratio for the VLQ in the standard modes, leading to an...

In this study we investigate the feasibility of detecting heavy dark neutrinos ($N_d$) through exotic Higgs decays at the proposed International Linear Collider (ILC), specifically in the channel of $e^+ e^- \to qq~ H$ with $H\to \nu N_d \to \nu~lW \to \nu l~qq$. Analyses based on full detector simulations of the ILD are performed at the center-of-mass energy of 250 GeV for two different beam...
