Anatomizing Exotic Production of the Higgs

TYPEJoint Particle Physics Seminar
Speaker:Dr. Felix Yu
Organizer:Yael Shadmi
Location:Lidow 620

We discuss exotic production modes of the Higgs boson and how their phenomenology can be probed in current Higgs analyses. We highlight the importance of differential distributions in disentangling standard production mechanisms from exotic modes. We present two model benchmarks for exotic Higgs production arising from chargino-neutralino production and study their impact on the current Higgs dataset. As a corollary, we emphasize that current Higgs coupling fits do not fully explore the space of new physics deviations possible in Higgs data.


13:00-14:30 Lunch journal club: Yevgeny Katz will discuss http://arxiv.org/abs/1501.05310
