The Simplest Higgs model is one of several Little Higgs extensions that attempt to address the hierchy problem through expansion of the Standard Model weak sector. New charged and neutral weak gauge bosons can cancel out the quadratic Higgs divergences in the Higg’s potential through loop diagrams. Production of charged X gauge bosons is studied through gauge boson fusion in pp collisions at 7 through 14 TeV. The pp > qqW±Y>qQX± production method of X± gauge bosons is shown to produce cross-sections that could be large enough to be detectable at the LHC. Here Q represents new heavy quarks that come out of the Simplest Higgs model, and Y is a massive neutral boson. Possible decay products of these gauge bosons are also discussed.


This is a study of possible signature charged gauge boson production in the simplest Higgs model. It focuses on gauge boson fusion production of a heavy X particle.
