Higgs 2021

America/New_York
Giacinto Piacquadio (State University of New York (US))
Description

The conference will be held virtually. If you are interested in attending the conference and you have not registered yet, please do so on the indico conference website: https://indico.cern.ch/event/1030068/registrations/

Zoom connection details are shared to registered participants once the registration is approved.

Update Sep 9th: 

The in-person component of the Higgs 2021 conference has been cancelled. The conference will be held virtually. This decision is driven not only by US-wide travel restrictions (from other countries), but also by self-imposed travel restrictions by DOE, DOE labs and several US institutions which make it impossible also for most US-based participants and speakers to travel to Stony Brook.


If you have any questions, you can reach the conference administrators at higgs2021-admins@cern.ch, and the full local organizing committee at higgs-couplings-Higgs2021-LOC@cern.ch. If you have any questions related to the program, please also add the program committee in cc: higgs-couplings-Higgs2021-PC@cern.ch.

We are looking forward to having you join Higgs 2021!

 

 

 

Higgs 2021 is this year's installment of an annual conference devoted to new experimental and theoretical results on the Higgs boson. The 2021 conference will present the latest results from the LHC on the Higgs boson mass, spin/parity, and couplings and will present new theoretical work devoted to the measurement of Higgs parameters and possibilities for exotic Higgs decays. The conference will provide an opportunity for critical discussion of the current strategies for studying the Higgs boson at the LHC and the next steps beyond the LHC. Higgs 2021 will include several sessions of parallel and plenary contributions on current research topics.

        Complex Singlet Benchmarks 5m

        Introducing simplified models with new particles/symmetries is one of the simplest solutions to the questions unanswered by the Standard Model of particles physics. We explore the phenomenology of adding a complex scalar singlet to the Standard Model without imposing any additional symmetries. This extension is particularly interesting since the model has three scalar mass eigenstates. This allows the production of discalar resonances between two different mass states. Additionally, the model can produce decay chains with several scalar resonances and other unique collider signatures. We study several benchmark scenarios that highlight the importance of various thresholds and display the rich phenomenology of the complex singlet model. We consider constraints such as narrow width, boundedness, perturbative unitarity, Higgs fits, and direct searches. We also compare the projected constraints for future colliders experiments such as the High Luminosity Large Hadron Collider, the International Linear Collider, and the Future Circular Colliders.

        Access to triple Higgs couplings in the 2HDM at future e+e- colliders 5m

        In this talk, we will analyze the production cross sections of two
        neutral Higgs bosons in models with two Higgs doublets (2HDM) with
        $CP$ conservation at future $e^{+}e^{-}$ colliders (specifically
        ILC and CLIC). Based on a previous work, we have studied the two main
        processes where the triple Higgs couplings can play an important role:
        $e^{+}e^{-}\to h_{i}h_{j}\nu\bar{\nu}$ (mainly through vector boson
        fusion) and $e^{+}e^{-}\to h_{i}h_{j}Z$ (similar to Higgs-strahlung)
        with $h_{i}h_{j}=hh,\ hH,\ HH\ \text{or}\ AA$. The processes are
        studied at all the foreseen center-of-mass energies and luminosities

        Probing di-Higgs using machine learning techniques 5m

        A direct measurement of the Higgs self coupling is very crucial to understand the nature of electroweak symmetry breaking. This requires an observation of production of Higgs boson pair, which suffers from very low event rate even at the current LHC run. In our work, we study the prospects of observing the Higgs pair production at the high luminosity run of the 14 TeV LHC (HL-LHC) and also the proposed high energy upgrade of the LHC at 27 TeV, namely, HE-LHC. For the HL-LHC study, we choose multiple final states based on the event rate and cleanliness, namely, $b\bar{b}\gamma \gamma$, $b\bar{b} \tau^+ \tau^-$, $b\bar{b} WW^*$, $WW^*\gamma \gamma$ and $4W$ channels and do a collider study by employing a cut-based as well as multivariate analyses using the Boosted Decision Tree (BDT) algorithm. In case of HE-LHC study, we select various di-Higgs final states based on their cleanliness and production rates, namely, $b\bar{b}\gamma\gamma$, $b\bar{b}\tau^{+}\tau^{-}$, $b\bar{b}WW^{*}$, $WW^{*}\gamma\gamma$, $b\bar{b}ZZ^{*}$ and $b\bar{b}\mu^{+}\mu^{-}$ channels. We adopt multivariate analyses using BDT algorithm, the XGBoost toolkit and Deep Neural Network (DNN) for the signal-background discrimination. Also, we perform a study on the ramifications of varying the self-coupling of Higgs boson from its Standard Model (SM) value.

        Search for Higgs boson pair production in the bbtautau final state with the ATLAS detector 5m

        The discovery of the Higgs boson and the measurement of its properties confirming the Standard Model (SM) is a major step towards the understanding of electroweak symmetry breaking. As a result, the potential of the Higgs field, and therefore the self-coupling of the Higgs boson, is precisely predicted in the SM. It can be probed by measuring the cross section of Higgs boson pair production, offering an additional test of the SM. In the SM such measurements are difficult due to the destructive interference of amplitudes containing the self-coupling and amplitudes only containing Yukawa couplings to top quarks, leading to a small production cross section at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). An enhancement would indicate the presence of physics beyond the SM, for example due to scalar resonances decaying into pairs of Higgs bosons. A search for non-resonant and resonant Higgs boson pair production in events with two b-jets and two tau-leptons is presented. It is performed using 139/fb of pp collision data recorded at sqrt(s) = 13 TeV by the ATLAS experiment during Run 2 of the LHC. The analysis considers semi-leptonic and fully hadronic di-tau final states and aims to set upper limits on the production cross section of Higgs boson pairs in the SM as well as on the resonant production of narrow-width scalars with masses ranging from the Higgs pair production threshold up to 1.6 TeV.

        Abstract:
        Searches for pairs of Higgs bosons will be, in all likelihood, the best tools to precisely measure the Higgs boson self-coupling $\lambda_{hhh}$ in future colliders. We study various strategies for the $hh\to b \bar{b} b \bar{b}$ search in the HL-LHC era with focus on constraining $\lambda_{hhh}$. We implement a machine-learning-based approach to separate signal and background and apply recent advances in machine learning interpretability, compare the traditional 4 $b$-jet reconstruction to final states with 1 or 2 large-radius jets, and test scenarios with different top-quark Yukawa couplings, among other factors.

        CP-Violating Invariants in the SMEFT 5m

        In the Standard Model, CP violation in the Electroweak sector is parametrized by the Jarlskog Invariant. This is the flavor invariant sensitive to CP violation with the least number of Yukawa matrices that can be built. When higher dimensional operators are allowed, and the Standard Model Effective Field Theory is constructed, numerous new sources for CP violation can appear. However, the description of CP violation as a collective effect, present in the SM, is inherited by its Effective extension. Here, I will discuss how such a behaviour can be consistently captured, at dimension 6, by flavor invariant, CP violating objects, linear in the Wilson coefficients. Such a description ensures that CP violation in the SMEFT is treated in a basis independent manner. In particular, I claim these are the objects that have to vanish, together with the SM Jarlskog Invariant, for CP to be conserved, and viceversa. The scaling properties of these invariants demonstrates that, while CP is not an accidental symmetry of the Standard Model, its breaking is accidentally small at the renormalizable level. Implications for specific flavor models, such as MFV, will be addressed.

        A Simple Perturbative UV Completion of HEFT 10m

        Particles which acquire some fixed fraction of their mass from the Higgs are non-decoupling since their coupling to the Higgs grows in proportion to their mass. In particular, particles which acquire more than half of their mass from the Higgs, here termed Loryons, are appropriately described by HEFT rather than SMEFT. As such, BSM Loryons are a simple perturbative UV completion of HEFT which cannot be written as a convergent SMEFT. Unitarity constraints bound the size of the coupling and thus the mass of new Loryons to $\mathcal{O}(1)$ TeV, meaning that Loryons have a finite parameter space for experimental searches. We examine the bounds on possible new scalar and fermionic Loryons from direct searches and from indirect bounds through precision measurements. We find that a number of candidates remain viable and thus could be targets for future searches and that improved measurements of Higgs couplings would strongly constrain the viable parameter space.

        Catching Heavy Vector Triplets with the SMEFT: from one-loop matching to phenomenology 5m

        An important question for both phenomenologists and experimentalists is whether one can put limits on UV model parameters by matching the full theory onto the SMEFT. I will show that this is possible but the limits set through a SMEFT framework are weaker than they would be for the full model. This is because truncating the SMEFT Lagrangian at dimension six and matching to the full model introduces additional theoretical uncertainties.

        I show that this impacts the limits set for the Heavy Vector Triplet extension of the Standard Model, one of the reasons being that the constraints now depend on the matching scale. I use the SFitter framework to derive limits taking into account Higgs measurements and electroweak precision data previously implemented. In addition, I discuss the impact of two new resonance searches for VH and VV on the fit.

        Optimally sensitive observables for global EFT fits 10m

        Global interpretations of particle physics data in the context of the Standard Model Effective Field Theory (SMEFT) rely on the combination of a wide range of physical observables from many different processes. A key open question to inform such global SMEFT fits is how one can construct new classes of measurements that bring in, in a well-defined statistical sense, a maximal amount of information into the EFT parameter space. We present ongoing work towards assembling optimally-sensitive LHC observables for EFT fits based on unbinned deep-learning parametrisations of the extended log-likelihood ratio, with the ultimate goal of integrating such observables as building blocks of future global EFT fits. We validate them with explicit analytic calculations, and devote particular attention to the role played by systematic and theory errors. As a proof of concept, we study the constraints on the SMEFT parameter space provided by top quark pair production and by Higgs boson production in association with vector bosons at the HL-LHC. Furthermore, we study to what degree binned analyses can achieve sensitivity approaching the optimal limit.

        Top, Higgs, Diboson and Electroweak Fit to the Standard Model Effective Field Theory 10m

        The search for effective field theory deformations of the Standard Model (SM) is a major goal of particle physics that can benefit from a global approach in the framework of the Standard Model Effective Field Theory (SMEFT). For the first time, we include LHC data on top production and differential distributions together with Higgs production and decay rates and Simplified Template Cross-Section (STXS) measurements in a global fit, as well as precision electroweak and diboson measurements from LEP and the LHC, in a global analysis with SMEFT operators of dimension 6 included linearly. We present the constraints on the coefficients of these operators, both individually and when marginalised, in flavour-universal and top-specific scenarios, studying the interplay of these datasets and the correlations they induce in the SMEFT. We then explore the constraints that our linear SMEFT analysis imposes on specific ultra-violet completions of the Standard Model, including those with single additional fields and low-mass stop squarks. We also present a model-independent search for deformations of the SM that contribute to between two and five SMEFT operator coefficients. In no case do we find any significant evidence for physics beyond the SM. Our underlying Fitmaker public code provides a framework for future generalisations of our analysis, including a quadratic treatment of dimension-6 operators.

        Combined SMEFT interpretation of Higgs, diboson, and top quark data from the LHC 10m

        We present a global interpretation of Higgs, diboson, and top quark production and decay measurements from the LHC in the framework of the Standard Model Effective Field Theory (SMEFT) at dimension six. We constrain simultaneously 36 independent directions in its parameter space, and compare the outcome of the global analysis with that from individual and two-parameter fits. Our results are obtained by means of state-of-the-art theoretical calculations for the SM and the EFT cross-sections, and account for both linear and quadratic corrections in the $1/\Lambda^2$ expansion. We demonstrate how the inclusion of NLO QCD and $\mathcal{O}(Λ^{−4})$ effects is instrumental to accurately map the posterior distributions associated to the fitted Wilson coefficients. We assess the interplay and complementarity between the top quark, Higgs, and diboson measurements, deploy a variety of statistical estimators to quantify the impact of each dataset in the parameter space, and carry out fits in BSM-inspired scenarios such as the top-philic model. Our results represent a stepping stone in the ongoing program of model-independent searches at the LHC from precision measurements, and pave the way towards yet more global SMEFT interpretations extended to other high-pT processes as well as to low-energy observables.

        Search of Higgs exotic decays at the ILC 5m

        One important class of models of dark matter as a light fermionic weakly interaction massive particle (WIMP) couples the WIMP to a new singlet scalar field that mixes with the Higgs doublet.
        The mixing couples the Higgs boson to a new scalar particle called the mediator φ. When the mixing angle is small, the mediator couples to the WIMP without any suppression while the coupling between the Higgs boson and WIMP is suppressed. In these models, the process h → φφ leads to invisible Higgs decays, but it also leads to new decay modes in which the mediator φ is directly visible, for example, through its decay φ→bb. A future lepton collider is expected to play an important role in the search for these new Higgs decay modes. In this talk we describe a full simulation study at the 250 GeV ILC based on the ILD detector concept. The signal production process is e+e− → Zh followed by exotic Higgs decays through h → φφ. We will focus on the decay channel φ→bb with a mediator mass from 15 GeV to 60 GeV and report the expected limit on the branching ratio of the exotic Higgs decay h→4b.

        The THDMa and possible e+e- signatures 10m

        The THDMa is a new physics model that extends the scalar sector of the Standard Model by an additional doublet as well as a pseudoscalar singlet and allows for mixing between all possible scalar states. In the gauge eigenbasis, the additional pseudoscalar serves as a portal to the dark sector, with a priori any dark matter spin states. The option where dark matter is fermionic is currently one of the standard benchmarks for the experimental collaborations, and several searches at the LHC constrain the corresponding parameter space. However, most current studies constrain regions in parameter space by setting all but 2 of the 12 free parameters to fixed values.
        I will discuss a generic scan on this model, allowing all parameters to float. All current theoretical and experimental constraints are applied. I identify regions in the parameter space which are still allowed after these have been applied and which might be interesting for an investigation at a future e+e- collider.

        Higgs bosons signals of muon g-2 at the LHC and future colliders 10m

        Among the simplest new physics explanations of the muon g-2 anomaly are scenarios with additional contributions mediated by SM gauge or Higgs bosons and new leptons. The leptons can be very heavy, even beyond the reach of future colliders, and thus the confirmation of such explanations might rely only on indirect evidence. This includes modifications of muon couplings to $Z$, $W$ and Higgs bosons from SM predictions that can be searched for at the LHC and future colliders. Especially, a deviation of $h\to \mu^+ \mu^-$ from SM prediction would be highly suggestive of this explanation. In addition, I will discuss di-Higgs and tri-Higgs signals tightly related to the explanation of muon g-2. Due to large predicted rates, even a very low energy muon collider could see a signal or rule out these models.

        Sensitivity to invisible scalar decays at CLIC 10m

        An electron-positron Higgs factory is regarded as the highest-priority next large-scale collider facility. Among others, two linear collider projects are being considered: the Compact Linear Collider (CLIC) and the International Linear Collider (ILC). Reaching energies at the TeV scale, both machines would allow us not only to study Higgs boson and top quark properties with very high precision but could also result in the direct or indirect discovery of New Physics. SM-like Higgs boson or new heavy scalar decays with the emission of invisible dark matter particles could be the only way to observe Beyond the Standard Model effects at achievable energy scales and establish the connection between the Standard Model and New Physics sectors.

        We studied the possibility of measuring the invisible Higgs boson and additional heavy scalar decays with CLIC running at 380 GeV and 1.5 TeV. The analysis is based on the WHIZARD event generation and fast simulation of CLIC detector response with DELPHES. We estimated the expected limits on the invisible decays of the 125 GeV Higgs boson, as well as the cross section limits for the production of an additional neutral scalar, assuming its invisible decays, as a function of its mass. The results obtained are one order of magnitude more stringent than the current limits coming from the LHC.

        Testing anomalous H−W couplings and Higgs self-couplings via double and triple Higgs production at e+e− colliders 10m

These vertices are given by four parameters, $a$, $b$, $\kappa_3$ and $\kappa_4$, respectively, that are independent and without any constraint from symmetry considerations in this non-linear effective Lagrangian context, given the fact the Higgs field is a singlet. This is in contrast to the Standard Model, where the vertices are related by $V_{WWH}^{\rm SM}=v V_{WWHH}^{\rm SM}$ and $V_{HHH}^{\rm SM}=v V_{HHHH}^{\rm SM}$, with $v=246$ GeV. We investigate the implications of the absence of these relations in the Electroweak Chiral Lagrangian case. We explore the sensitivity to these Higgs anomalous couplings in the two main channels at these colliders: double and triple Higgs production (plus neutrinos). Concretely, we study the access to $a$ and $b$ in $e^+e^- \to HH \nu \bar{\nu}$ and the access to $\kappa_3$ and $\kappa_4$ in $e^+e^- \to HHH \nu \bar{\nu}$. Our study of the beyond the Standard Model couplings via triple Higgs boson production at $e^+e^-$ colliders is novel and shows for the first time the possible accessibility to the quartic Higgs self-coupling.

This talk presents recent ATLAS searches for decays of the 125 GeV Higgs boson to new particles, and searches for rare decays of the Higgs boson where enhanced rates would be a sign of new physics. These searches use LHC collision data at sqrt(s) = 13 TeV collected by the ATLAS experiment in Run 2.

        Searches for low- and high-mass resonances with the ATLAS detector 10m

        Several theories beyond the Standard Model predict the existence of new particles decaying into pairs of gauge bosons. These states generally have masses larger than that of the Higgs boson, while some theories predict resonances with masses smaller than it. The latest ATLAS results on searches for such resonances in final states with leptons and photons based on pp collision data collected at 13 TeV will be presented.

        Measurement of Higgs production and search for an additional SM-like Higgs boson in the diphoton decay channel with the CMS detector 10m

        We present a recent analysis from the CMS Collaboration of the full run 2 dataset in which production properties of the Higgs boson are measured using the diphoton decay channel. All major Higgs boson production mechanisms are considered, enabling a wide range of cross section and coupling measurements to be performed. Highlights include the first CMS measurement of Higgs boson production in association with a single top quark in this decay channel and a simultaneous measurement of 27 independent Higgs boson production parameters. In addition, we present a search for an additional SM-like Higgs bosons in the diphoton final state.

        Higgs searches at LHCb 10m

        LHCb is a spectrometer that covers the forward region of proton-proton collisions, in the pseudo rapidity range from 2 to 5. Thanks to the relatively background-free events in the high mass region, the precise reconstruction, and the trigger system with low energy thresholds, LHCb is the ideal place to search for (exotic) Higgs decays in a complementary space with respect to ATLAS and CMS. In this talk, the latest searches on BSM Higgs decays performed at LHCb will be presented, and the prospects for future LHC data-taking periods will be given. Moreover the possibility of observing the Standard Model H->bb and H->cc decays at LHCb in the future LHCb upgrades will be discussed.

        Multi-charged TeV scale Higgs bosons in the framework of a radiative seesaw model 10m

        Explaining the tiny neutrino masses and non-zero mixings have been one of the key motivations for going beyond the framework of the Standard Model (SM). We discuss a collider testable model for generating neutrino masses and mixings via radiative seesaw mechanism. That the model does not require any additional symmetry to forbid tree-level seesaws makes its collider phenomenology interesting. The model includes multi-charged fermions and Higgs bosons at the TeV scale to realize the Weinberg operator at 1-loop level. After deriving the constraints on the model parameters resulting from the neutrino oscillation data as well as from the upper bound on the absolute neutrino mass scale, we discuss the production, decay and resulting collider signatures of these TeV scale Higgs bosons at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). We consider both Drell-Yan and photo-production. The bounds from the neutrino data indicate the possible presence of a long-lived multi-charged particle (MCP) in this model. We obtain bounds on these long-lived MCP masses from the ATLAS search for abnormally large ionization signature. When the TeV scale Higgs bosons undergo prompt decay, we focus on the 4-lepton final states and obtain bounds from different ATLAS 4-lepton searches.

        Higgs sector in Left-Right Mirror Model with Dark Matter 10m

        After observing a Higgs boson, the experiments with higher precision still agree with the Standard Model (SM). However, there are interesting topics related to the Higgs boson that may open the possibility of accepting a theory beyond the SM. For instance, the mechanism by which neutrinos obtain mass is still hidden, processes that involve neutral currents with flavor-changing and CP violation sources, and a candidate for dark matter (DM). These topics can be considered in the model presented in this work. The considered model is based on local gauge symmetry $SU(3)_C\times SU(2)_R\times SU(2)_L\times U(1)_{Y^\prime}$, named in the literature as LR. The LR model can also have a content of particles similar to the left sector but endowed with a right charge, known as mirror particles. From these additional particles one of the mirror neutrinos is proposed as candidate of DM. On the part of the scalar sector, the mirror doublet not only helps to break $SU(2)_R$ symmetry but also provides neutral and heavier Higgs-type scalar that gives an additional channel for the study of DM annihilation. Considering the last data reported by PLANCK Collaboration for non-baryonic content of the matter density, it has been found that heavy Higgs can have masses of the order of $ \sim 1$ TeV.

        The CP character of the Higgs-fermion-fermion interactions: Interplay of collider physics, EDMs and baryogensis 10m

        An important goal in the investigation of the Higgs boson is the determination of its CP structure. In this talk, we investigate in detail constraints on the CP nature of the Higgs-fermion-fermion couplings. We take into account all relevant collider constraints in a global fit. Starting with simple effective models featuring CP violation in only one Higgs-fermion-fermion coupling, we successively allow for CP violation in more couplings. Moreover, we study the complementarity with electric dipole measurements and assess to which extent CP violation in the Higgs-fermion-fermion coupling can account for the baryon-antibaryon asymmetry of the Universe.

        Offshell production provides a unique way to measure the Higgs boson width and test unitarity in diboson production amplitudes. This process also adds sensitivity when constraining the Higgs boson anomalous couplings. In this talk, studies of offshell Higgs boson production in the ZZ to 2l2nu final state are presented, using Run 2 data from the CMS experiment. Results from the ZZ to 2l2nu final state are combined with published ZZ to 4l results to derive strong constraints.

        We explore the new physics reach for the off-shell Higgs boson measurement in the $pp \to H^* \rightarrow Z(\ell^{+}\ell^{-})Z(\nu\bar{\nu})$ channel at the high-luminosity LHC. The new physics sensitivity is parametrized in terms of the Higgs boson width, effective field theory framework, and a non-local Higgs-top coupling form factor. Adopting Machine-learning techniques, we demonstrate that the combination of a large signal rate and a precise phenomenological probe for the process energy scale, due to the transverse $ZZ$ mass, leads to significant sensitivities beyond the existing results in the literature for the new physics scenarios considered.

        Directly Probing the Higgs-top Coupling at High Scales 10m

        The top-quark Yukawa coupling $y_t$ is the strongest interaction of the Higgs boson in the Standard Model (SM) with $y_t \sim 1$. Due to its magnitude, it plays a central role in Higgs phenomenology in the SM and would be most sensitive to physics beyond the Standard Model. The top Yukawa can be directly measured at the LHC via top pair production in association with a Higgs boson  $t\bar{t}h$. We study new physics effects for the Higgs-top coupling at high scales, using jet substructure techniques. We present the high-luminosity LHC sensitivity to new physics parametrized in the EFT framework and through a general Higgs-top form factor.

        Electroweak Restoration at the LHC and Beyond: The Vh Channel 10m

        The LHC is exploring electroweak (EW) physics at the scale EW symmetry is broken. As the LHC and new high energy colliders push our understanding of the Standard Model to ever-higher energies, it will be possible to probe not only the breaking of but also the restoration of EW symmetry. We propose to observe EW restoration in double EW boson production via the convergence of the Goldstone boson equivalence theorem. This convergence is most easily measured in the vector boson plus Higgs production, Vh, which is dominated by the longitudinal polarizations. We define EW restoration by carefully taking the limit of zero Higgs vacuum expectation value (vev). We demonstrate that the 14 TeV HL-LHC can confirm that this ratio converges to one to 40% precision while at the 27 TeV HE-LHC the precision will be 6%. We also investigate statistical tests to quantify the convergence at high energies. Our analysis provides a roadmap for how to stress test the Goldstone boson equivalence theorem and our understanding of spontaneously broken symmetries, in addition to confirming the restoration of EW symmetry.

        Optimising the performance of the CMS Electromagnetic Calorimeter in LHC Run 2 for the measurement of Higgs boson properties 10m

        The CMS Electromagnetic Calorimeter (ECAL), is a high granularity lead tungstate crystal calorimeter operating at the CERN LHC. The original design placed a premium on excellent energy resolution for the discovery and subsequent characterisation of the Higgs boson. Excellent energy resolution and efficient identification for photons are essential to reconstruct the Higgs boson in the H->gg decay channel, for measurements of the mass, signal strength and other related properties of the Higgs boson.

        A full recalibration of the CMS ECAL has recently been performed using the full LHC Run 2 (2015-2018) dataset. The stability of the energy response versus time is ensured by a dedicated laser-based monitoring system, together with additional time-dependent corrections derived from physics events. A dedicated calibration of each detector channel has also been performed, exploiting electrons from W and Z boson decays, photons from pi0/eta decays, and the azimuthally symmetric energy distribution of minimum bias events. These refined calibrations have resulted in significant improvements in ECAL energy resolution and energy scale stability, compared to the preliminary calibrations that have previously been used in the analysis of Run 2 data.

        This talk will present the ECAL calibration strategies that have been implemented and the resulting performance achieved by the ECAL for LHC Run 2. The potential impact of these improvements on measurements of Higgs boson properties will also be described.

        Study of b- and c-jets identification for Higgs coupling measurements at Muon Collider 10m

        The Muon Collider is a possible option for the next generation of high energy collider machines. It would permit to achieve very high energy in the center of mass using leptons without occurring in a significative synchrotron radiation losses as in the electrons rings. Due to the muon decay, the detector has to sustain a high level of background: beam decay products and subsequent particles from secondary interactions with the machine elements can reach the interaction point, limiting the physical performances of the detector. Nevertheless, this machine offers the possibility to produce a lot Higgs bosons events to allow the precise determination of the b- and c-quark couplings. In this talk studies on the identification of b- and c-jets in the Muon Collider environment will be presented.

        Among the projects currently under study for the next generation of particle accelerators, the muon collider represents a unique machine, which has the capability to provide leptonic collisions at energies of several TeV. The multi-TeV energy regime is as yet unexplored and holds a huge physical potential that will enable a novel research programme ranging from high precision measurements of known standard model processes to high-sensitivity searches for phenomena beyond the standard model.

        Flavor-Tagging of Quark Pairs at e+e- Higgs/Top Factories 10m

        At e+e- colliders, it is possible to separately measure the branching ratios for Higgs decays to bb, cc, and light quark and gluon jets. However, this imposes extraordinary requirements on heavy quark tagging. We have been studying the capabilities of e+e- detectors for heavy quark tagging using the reactions e+e- -> qq, with qq = cc, bb, tt at 250 and 500 GeV. We will show with detailed simulations using the ILD detector concept that the production rates and the forward-backward asymmetries of all three processes can be measured at the 0.1% - 0.5% level, and we will explain how systematic errors can be controlled to reach this level of accuracy. It is possible to achieve superb measurements of secondary and tertiary vertices and measurement of the vertex charges to distinguish quarks from antiquarks. We will also comment on the direct relevance of these 4-fermion reactions to electroweak symmetry breaking by showing their discovery potential for Randall-Sundrum models with warped extra dimensions.

        A combined fit to the Higgs Branching Ratios at ILD 10m

        We introduce here a new method to measure the Higgs decay branching ratios at future e⁺e⁻ Higgs factories, by directly exploiting class numeration.
        Given the clean environment at a lepton collider, we build an event sample highly enriched in Higgs bosons and essentially unbiased for any decay mode.
        The sample can be partitioned into categories using event properties linked to the expected Higgs decay modes.
        The counts per category are used to fit the Higgs branching ratios in a model independent way.
        The result of the fit is directly the set of branching ratios, independent from any measurement of a Higgs production mode.
        Special care is given to an appropriate treatment of the statistical uncertainties.
        In this contribution, the current status of our implementation of this analysis within the ILD concept detector is presented.

        Prospects of Higgs self-coupling measurements at the ILC using ILD detector 10m

        Higgs self-coupling measurement provides a direct probe of the Higgs potential, which is important both for understanding of electroweak symmetry breaking and for testing of electroweak baryogenesis models. In this talk we will present studies addressing two aspects about the Higgs self-coupling measurement at the ILC at the center-of-mass energies of 500 GeV and 1 TeV. The first one is for the measurements of double Higgs production cross sections, based on the full detector simulation using the ILD and by including all SM background processes. The second one is how the prospect of Higgs self-coupling measurement would drastically change if its value is largely deviated with its SM expected as suggested by EW baryogengesis models. The talk will also point out some experimental opportunities such as how better flavor-tagging and jet-clustering algorithms would help improve Higgs self-coupling measurements.

        Electron Yukawa determination 10m

        Measuring the electron Yukawa is impossible in Higgs boson decays, H -> e+e- , given the smallness of the electron mass that leads to a vanishingly small decay branching fraction. The only direct method to extract the Higgs-electron coupling is through resonant s-channel production in e+e- collisions running at the Higgs pole mass. Such a measurement is possible at the FCC-ee provided one can monochromatize the beams, leading to a center-of-mass energy spread not much larger than the Higgs boson width of ~4 MeV, as well as having a prior accurate and precise knowledge of the Higgs boson mass, within MeV uncertainties. Under such conditions, a study combining 10 different Higgs decay modes indicates that a ~1.3sigma significance for the e+e- -> H process can be reached, above the (much larger) backgrounds, for every 10 ab-1 of integrated luminosity per FCC-ee interaction point (IP). Depending on the number of IPs and years running at the Higgs pole, such a measurement will provide the only means known to access the electron Yukawa.

Very high energy proton-proton collision (up to 100 TeV) provided by the FCC-hh will allow studying the Higgs self-coupling.

        Search for non-resonant di-Higgs production in the bbyy final state at 13 TeV with the ATLAS experiment 10m

        The bbγγ channel is one of the most sensitive HH final states for measuring the Higgs self-coupling and di-Higgs production cross-section. This analysis capitalizes on the clean signature of the two photons in the final state combined with the high branching ratio of H→bb. This talk will present the latest non-resonant ATLAS HH→ bbγγ results with the full Run 2 dataset of 139/fb at 13 TeV. The analysis uses a multivariate approach to target high and low HH mass regions to maximize the sensitivity to modifications of the Higgs self-coupling. This result sets the observed (expected) upper limits on the non-resonant HH production cross-section at a 95% confidence level at 130 fb (180 fb), which corresponds to 4.1x (5.5x) the Standard Model value. The analysis provides the strongest observed (expected) limits on the self-coupling of -1.5 to 6.7 (-2.4 to 7.7) to date.

        Higgs Physics at a Muon Collider 10m

        Muon collisions at multi-TeV center of mass energies are ideal for studying Higgs boson properties. At these energies the production rates will allow precise measurements of its couplings to fermions and bosons. In addition the double Higgs boson production rate could be sufficiently high to directly measure the parameters of trilinear self-couplings, giving access to the determination of the Higgs potential.
        This contribution aims to give an overview of the results that have been obtained so far on Higgs couplings by studying the 𝜇+𝜇−→𝐻𝜈𝜈¯ and 𝜇+𝜇−→𝐻𝐻𝜈𝜈¯ processes. All the studies have been performed by fully simulating the signal and physics background samples and by evaluating the effects of the beam-induced background on the detector performances.

        Strange Quark as a Probe for New Physics in the Higgs Sector 10m

        A crucial element of the study of the Higgs boson is the measurement of its couplings to the fermions of the second generation. Experiments at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) have recently reported the first evidence for the Higgs boson coupling to the muon. It is equally important to measure the Higgs boson coupling to the charm and strange quarks. These decay modes are nearly impossible to measure with precision at the LHC due to the limited detector capabilities and large irreducible backgrounds. The situation is better at e+e- colliders, but the identification of strange quark decays of the Higgs boson remains a challenge. One needs an efficient algorithm to distinguish jets originating from strange quarks from those initiated by lighter quarks. Also, one must deal with backgrounds due to strange production in heavy-quark jets. In this talk we will present a first version of a strange quark tagger and the first projected sensitivity estimates for the coupling of the Higgs boson to strange quarks at future e+e- colliders . The studies make use of the International Large Detector (ILD) simulations for the International Linear Collider, but the methodology and the results are expected to be similar for other proposed e+e- Higgs factories.

        Measurements of Higgs boson production cross sections in the H -> ττ decay channel in pp collisions at √s = 13 TeV with the ATLAS detector 10m

        The coupling of the Higgs boson to tau leptons is one of the most precise measured couplings of the Higgs boson to fermions. A measurement of the production cross sections of the Higgs boson into two tau leptons is presented. The cross section is measured in the gluon-fusion, vector-boson-fusion, boson associated, and top-quark pair associated production channels. The result is shown in the context of Simplified Template Cross Sections. The study illustrates the technique for the Higgs boson mass reconstruction (Missing Mass Calculator, MMC). The analysis uses proton-proton collision data recorded during Run 2 at a center-of-mass energy sqrt(s) = 13 TeV with the ATLAS detector at the LHC.

        First Order Electroweak Phase Transition from Weakly Coupled sub-GeV Physics 10m

        We propose that the dynamics of a scalar $\phi$ of mass $O(10)$ MeV, weakly coupled to the Higgs, can give rise to a first order electroweak phase transition. Vacuum stability close to the weak scale requires a suppressed (maybe vanishing) top Yukawa coupling before the transition, rising to the Standard Model (SM) value later. All SM flavor could appear similarly, after the electroweak phase transition, through dimension-5 interactions of $\phi$ suppressed by scales from $O(10^3)$ TeV to near Planck mass. The scalar $\phi$ is long-lived and can yield missing energy signals in rare kaon decays.

        Collider and Gravitational Wave Complementarity in the 2HDM 10m

        The Higgs potential is crucial for us to understand the mechanism of EWSB. We show how collider measurements and observations of stochastic gravitation wave can complement each other to explore the scalar potential in the 2HDM scenario. Through a comprehensive study, accouting for theoretical and current experimental constraints, we study the key ingredients in the shape of the Higgs potential triggering the strong first order phase transition and compare the dominant collider signals at the HL-LHC. We obtain that the heavy Higgs searches with fermionic decay, $H/A/H^\pm\to ff$, are the leading smoking gun signatures of strong first order EWPT in the 2HDM.

        Searches for additional Higgs bosons in ATLAS 10m

        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 to solely explain some observations. Many extensions of the Standard Model addressing such shortcomings introduce additional Higgs-like bosons which can be either neutral, singly-charged or even doubly-charged. The current status of searches based on the full LHC Run 2 dataset of the ATLAS experiment at 13 TeV are presented.

        Searches for resonances decaying to boson pairs in ATLAS 10m

        Many new physics models predict the existence of Higgs-like particles decaying into two bosons (W, Z, photon, or Higgs bosons) making these important signatures in the search for new physics. Searches for spin-0 diboson resonances have been performed in final states with different numbers of leptons, photons, as well as jets and b-jets where new jet substructure techniques are used to disentangle the hadronic decay products in highly boosted configuration. This talk summarises recent ATLAS searches with Run 2 data collected at the LHC and explains the experimental methods used, including vector- and Higgs-boson-tagging techniques.

        Exact top-quark mass dependence in hadronic Higgs production 10m

        The impact of the finite top-quark mass on the inclusive Higgs
        production cross section at higher perturbative orders has been an open
        question for almost three decades. In this talk, I report on the
        computation of this effect at NNLO QCD. For the
        purely gluonic channel, it amounts to $+0.62\%$ relative to the result
        obtained in the HEFT approximation. The formally sub-leading
        partonic channels over-compensate this shift, leading to an overall
        effect of $-0.26\%$ at a $pp$ collider energy of $13\,\mathrm{TeV}$, and $-0.1\%$
        at $8\,\mathrm{TeV}$. This result eliminates one of the main theoretical
        uncertainties to inclusive Higgs production cross section at
        the LHC.

        We present state-of-the-art predictions for the transverse momentum of
        the colour singlet in gluon-fusion Higgs production. We resum this observable at N$^3$LL’ accuracy in momentum space with the RadISH formalism, thus consistently including in our prediction all constant terms of relative order $\alpha_s^3$ with respect to the Born. We supplement our results with a transverse-recoil prescription, accounting for dominant classes of subleading-power corrections in a fiducial setup. The resummed predictions are then matched with fixed-order differential spectra at NNLO accuracy and compared with 13 TeV LHC data relevant to the Higgs to di-photon channel.

        The Higgs pT Spectrum and Total Cross Section with Fiducial Cuts at N3LL'+N3LO 10m

        I present predictions for the gluon-fusion Higgs $p_T$ spectrum at N$^3$LL$'$+N$^3$LO including fiducial $H \to \gamma\gamma$ cuts as required by experimental measurements at the LHC. Integrating the spectrum allows us to predict for the first time the total fiducial cross section to third order (N$^3$LO) and improved by resummation. I discuss several aspects of the calculation, including

        • the treatment of fiducial power corrections that make the total cross section sensitive to small-$p_T$ resummation effects, and in particular enhance the N$^3$LO correction,
        • the numerical extraction of the remaining nonsingular corrections at $\mathcal{O}(\alpha_s^3)$, and
        • extensions to other differential Higgs cross sections at three loops, including the Higgs rapidity spectrum and the diphoton rapidity separation, where a similar sensitivity to resummation effects arises.

        The Standard Model predicts several rare Higgs boson decay channels, among which are decays to a Z boson and a photon, H to Zgamma, and to a low-mass lepton pair and a photon H to llgamma. The observation of these decays could open the possibility of studying the CP and coupling properties of the Higgs boson in a complementary way to other analyses. In addition, lepton-flavor-violating decays of the observed Higgs boson are searched for, where on observation would be a clear sign of physics effects beyond the Standard Model. Several results for decays based on pp collision data collected at 13 TeV will be presented.

        Higgs to charm quarks in vector boson fusion plus a photon 10m

        Experimentally probing the charm-Yukawa coupling in the LHC experiments
        is important, but very challenging due to an enormous QCD background. We study a new channel that can be used to search for the Higgs decay $H\to c\bar c$, using the vector boson fusion (VBF) mechanism with an associated photon. In addition to suppressing the QCD background, the photon gives an effective trigger handle. We discuss the trigger implications of this final state that can be utilized in ATLAS and CMS. We propose a novel search strategy for $H\to c\bar c$ in association with VBF jets and a photon, where we find a projected sensitivity of about 5 times the SM charm-Yukawa coupling at 95$\%$ $\text{CL}_s$ at High Luminosity LHC (HL-LHC). Our result is comparable and complementary to existing projections at the HL-LHC. We also discuss the implications of increasing the center of mass collision energy to 30 TeV and 100 TeV.

        We investigate semi-invisible Higgs decays $h \to Z X$ (with $X$ an invisible particle) as probes of the possible interactions of the Higgs boson with a dark sector. This possibility can occur in dark matter models with a low-mass pseudoscalar mediator to the dark sector, as well as in models of axion-like particles or dark photons interacting with the Higgs boson. The SM decay $h \to Z\nu\nu$ constitutes a "neutrino floor" for this type of search (and provides a sensitivity target for the search), and we study the window that is left for probing new physics via $h \to Z X$ at the LHC and future colliders.

        Higgs boson CP properties at CEPC 10m

        The next generation collider, CEPC, will operate at sqrt(s)=240 GeV as the Higgs factory to provide a clean environment for precise measurement of Higgs properties. With the expected integrated luminosity of 5.6 /ab, the CEPC will be able to reach the accuracy for Higgs CP property much better than HL-LHC. Thus the anomalous coupling in the presence of BSM physics can be searched with unprecedented sensitivity. More importantly, the coupling can be studied in both ee->Z->ZH and H->ZZ processes to get a better knowledge of q^2-dependence. This talk will summarize the expected results of Higgs CP, and anomalous coupling, fa2 and fa3, with a BDT study of the angular distributions based on MC simulations in CEPC. The sensitivity is significantly improved compared to that from HL-LHC.

One method is as same as that at LHC, using differential distributions in H—>WW decay channel. At the ILC essentially all decay channels of WW including the fully hadronic channel can be utilized. Charm-tagging is very useful in order to get more complete differential distributions. Identifying the charge of charm-jets will also be helpful to determine the charge of Ws in fully hadronic decays. Another method to probe anomalous WWH at the ILC is to use the differential cross section for the production channel e+e- —> nu nubar H via WW-fusion, which becomes significant and very useful at a CM energy of 500 GeV.

        Higgs as a probe of beyond the Standard Model physics 10m

        The minimal U$(1)_X$ extension of the Standard Model (SM) is a simple and well-motivated extension of the SM, which supplements the SM with the seesaw mechanism for naturally generating the light neutrino masses and offers various interesting phenomenologies.In the model, the U$(1)_X$ charge of each SM field is characterized by the U$(1)_X$ charge of the SM Higgs doublet with a free parameter $x_H$ and $x_\Phi$. Due to the U$(1)_X$ charge of the Higgs doublet, the Higgs boson has a trilinear coupling with the $Z$ and the U$(1)_X$ gauge boson $(Z^\prime)$ due to $x_H\neq 0$. With this coupling, a new process for the associated Higgs boson production with $Z$ boson arises through a $Z^\prime$ boson in the $s$-channel at high energy colliders. In this paper, we calculate the associated Higgs boson production at high energy colliders and show the interesting effects of the new $Z^\prime$ boson mediated process, which can be tested in the future. Such models contains three SM singlet RHNs which generate the light neutrino mass through the seesaw mechanism after the U$(1)_X$ breaking. We will also study the prospect of such RHN productions through the Higgs boson at the colliders which can probe a suitable neutrino mass generation mechanism.

        Brane-Higgs fields 10m

        The problematic huge hierarchy between the usual 4-dimensional Planck mass scale of gravity and the ElectroWeak symmetry breaking scale can interestingly disappear at some point-like location along extra space-like dimensions where the effective gravity scale is reduced down to the TeV scale. Field theories with point-like particle locations (3-dimensional brane-worlds) or point-like interactions deserve special care. In particular it can be shown that, in contrast with usual literature, brane-scalar fields – like the SM Higgs boson – interacting with fermions in the whole space (bulk) do not need to be regularized if rigorous 4- or 5-dimensional treatments are applied: standard regularization introduces a finite width wave function for scalar fields localized along extra dimensions. The variational calculus of least action principle must also be applied strictly to derivate the fermion (Kaluza-Klein) masses and couplings, in particular by distinguishing the natural and essential boundary conditions: the higher-dimensional model – based in particular on extra compact spaces of type interval or circle (orbifold) – must be defined either completely through the action expression [necessity then for new specific brane terms bilinear in the fermion fields] or partially from additional so-called essential boundary conditions. Besides, the correct action integrand definition requires to introduce improper integrals in order to remain compatible with the fermion wave function discontinuities induced by point-like Higgs interactions. Phenomenologically, the correct treatment of the brane-localised Higgs boson could be tested via the precise measurements of the Higgs coupling to di-photon or (flavour-changing) Yukawa interactions at hadron and lepton colliders.

        Measurements and interpretations of Simplified Template Cross Sections, differential and fiducial cross sections in Higgs boson decays to two photons with the ATLAS detector 10m

        Higgs boson decays to two photons can be selected with high efficiency, and the very good invariant mass resolution allows a robust subtraction of the backgrounds. This talk will present measurements of Simplified Template Cross Sections, differential and fiducial cross sections, as measured in the diphoton decay channel by the ATLAS detector using the full Run 2 dataset of pp collision data collected at 13 TeV at the LHC, and their respective interpretations in the context of an Effective Field Theory.

        Measurements and interpretations of Simplified Template Cross Sections and differential and fiducial cross sections in Higgs boson decays to two W bosons with the ATLAS detector 10m

        The Higgs boson decay to two W bosons has the largest bosonic branching fraction and can be used to perform some of the most precise measurements of the Higgs boson production cross sections.

        Combined measurements of Higgs boson production and decays with the ATLAS detector 10m

        The most precise measurements of Higgs boson cross sections, using the framework of simplified template cross sections, are obtained from a combination of measurements performed in the different Higgs boson decay channels using pp collision data with a center-of-mass energy of 13 TeV. This talk presents the combined measurements, as well as their interpretations in terms of Higgs coupling modifiers and their ratios, also taking into account results of searches for H->invisible decays as well as off-shell Higgs boson production.

        Probing the electroweak symmetry breaking with Higgs production at the LHC 10m

        The electroweak symmetry breaking (EWSB) mechanism is still an undecided question in particle physics. We propose to utilize the single top quark and Higgs associated production ($th$), $Zh$ production via gluon fusion at the LHC to probe the couplings between the Higgs and the gauge bosons and further to test the EWSB. We demonstrate that the $th$ and $gg\to Zh$ productions are sensitive to the relative sign of couplings ($ht\bar{t}$, $hWW$) and ($ht\bar{t}$, $hZZ$), respectively. We find that the relative sign between $hWW$ and $hZZ$ couplings could be fully determined after combining the present measurements from $gg\to h$, $t\bar{t}h$ and the $th$, $Zh$ channels, as well as $tZj$ and $Zt\bar{t}$ production at the 13 TeV LHC, and this conclusion is not sensitive to the possible new physics contribution induced by $Zt\bar{t}$ couplings in the $gg\to Zh$ production.

        Resurrecting bbh with kinematic shapes 10m

        The associated production of a $b\bar{b}$ pair with a Higgs boson could provide an important probe to both the size and the phase of the bottom-quark Yukawa coupling, $y_b$. However, the signal is shrouded by several background processes including the irreducible $Zh, Z\to b\bar{b}$ background. We show that the analysis of kinematic shapes provides us with a concrete prescription for separating the $y_b$-sensitive production modes from both the irreducible and the QCD-QED backgrounds using the $b\bar{b}\gamma\gamma$ final state. We draw a page from game theory and use Shapley values to make Boosted Decision Trees interpretable in terms of kinematic measurables and provide physics insights into the variances in the kinematic shapes of the different channels that help us complete this feat. Adding interpretability to the machine learning algorithm opens up the black-box and allows us to cherry-pick only those kinematic variables that matter most in the analysis. We resurrect the hope of constraining the size and, possibly, the phase of $y_b$ using kinematic shape studies of $b\bar{b}h$ production with the full HL-LHC data and at FCC-hh.

        YSF: Analysis of the CP structure of the Higgs boson in tau tau decays at CMS 5m

        The standard model (SM) predicts the Higgs boson to be even under charge-parity (CP) inversion. That makes any experimentally observed deviations from this hypothesis an intriguing hint towards new physics.

        In this talk we present the first measurement of the CP properties of the Higgs boson in its coupling to leptons. In particular, the decay into a pair of tau leptons preserves CP information via spin correlations of tau decay products. To extract this information, dedicated analysis techniques have been developed and used to analyse data collected by the CMS experiment during Run 2. Altogether, this allowed to measure the mixing angle between CP-even and CP-odd hypotheses with a precision sufficient to reject the pure CP-odd scenario.

        Higgs boson decay to $J/\psi$ via $c$-quark fragmentation 10m

        With the discovery of the Higgs boson at the CERN Large Hadron Collider (LHC), the particle spectrum of the Standard Model (SM) is complete. The next target at the energy frontier will be to study the Higgs properties and to search for the next scale beyond the SM. Experimentally, the $H\to c \bar{c}$ channel would be extremely difficult to dig out because of both the weak Yukawa coupling and the daunting SM di-jet background. We propose to test the charm-quark Yukawa coupling at the LHC and future hadron colliders with the Higgs boson decay to $J/\psi$ via the charm-quark fragmentation. Using the non-relativistic quantum chromodynamics (NRQCD), we study the Higgs decay channel $ H \to c \ \bar{c} + J/\psi $(or $ \eta_c $), where both the color-singlet and color-octet contributions are considered. Our result opens another door to improve determinations at the LHC of the Higgs Yukawa couplings: the final state from this decay mode is quite distinctive with $J/\psi\to e^+e^-,\, \mu^+\mu^-$ and the branching fraction is logarithmically enhanced by the charm-quark fragmentation mechanism.

        Machine learning the Higgs-top CP Measurement 10m

        We explore the direct Higgs-top CP structure via the $pp \to t\bar{t}h$ channel with machine learning techniques, considering the clean $h \to \gamma\gamma$ final state at the high luminosity LHC~(HL-LHC). We show that a combination of a comprehensive set of observables, that include the $t\bar{t}$ spin-correlations, with mass minimization strategies to reconstruct the $t\bar{t}$ rest frame provide large CP-sensitivity.
