Subjects: Physics >> The Physics of Elementary Particles and Fields

In the framework of the simplest little Higgs model (SLHM), we study the production of a pair of neutral CP-even Higgs bosons at the LHC. First, we examine the production rate and find that it can be significantly larger than the SM prediction. Then we investigate the decays of the Higgs-pair and find that for a low Higgs mass their dominant decay mode is hh -> eta eta eta eta (eta is a CP-odd scalar) while hh -> b (b) over bar eta eta and hh -> eta eta WW may also have sizable ratios. Finally, we comparatively study the rates of pp -> hh -> b (b) over bar tau(+)tau(-), pp -> hh -> b (b) over bar gamma gamma, and pp -> hh -> WWWW in the SLHM and the littlest Higgs models (LHT). We find that for a light Higgs, compared with the SM predictions, all the three rates can be sizably enhanced in the LHT but severely suppressed in the SLHM; while for an intermediately heavy Higgs, both the LHT and SLHM can enhance sizably the SM predictions.

Little Higgs theory confronted with the LHC Higgs data

We confront the little Higgs theory with the LHC Higgs search data (up to 17 fb(-1) of the combined 7 and 8 TeV run). Considering some typical models, namely, the littlest Higgs model, the littlest Higgs model with T parity (LHT-A and LHT-B), and the simplest little Higgs model, we scan over the parameter space in the region allowed by current experiments. We find that in these models the inclusive and exclusive (via gluon-gluon fusion) diphoton and ZZ* signal rates of the Higgs boson are always suppressed and approach the standard model predictions for a large-scale f. Thus, the ZZ* signal rate is within the 1 sigma range of the experimental data while the inclusive diphoton signal rate is always outside the 2 sigma range. Especially, in the LHT-A the diphoton signal rate is outside the 3 sigma range of the experimental data for f < 800 GeV. We also perform a global chi(2) fit to the available LHC and Tevatron Higgs data, and find that these models provide no better global fit to the whole data set (only for some special channels a better fit can be obtained, especially in the LHT-B).

Explaining 750 GeV diphoton excess from top/bottom partner cascade decay in two-Higgs-doublet model extension

In this paper, we interpret the 750 GeV diphoton excess in the Zee-Babu extension of the two-Higgs-doublet model by introducing a top partner (T)/bottom partner (B). In the alignment limit, the 750 GeV resonance is identified as the heavy CP-even Higgs boson (H), which can be sizably produced via the QCD process pp -> T (T) over bar or pp -> B (B) over bar followed by the decay T -> Ht or B -> Hb. The diphoton decay rate of His greatly enhanced by the charged singlet scalars predicted in the Zee-Babu extension and the total width of H can be as large as 7 GeV. Under the current LHC constraints, we scan the parameter space and find that such an extension can account for the observed diphoton excess. (C) 2016 The Authors. Published by Elsevier B.V.
