The case of a large-mass Higgs

TH Theory Conference Room (CERN)

TH Theory Conference Room


Charalampos Anastasiou (Unknown), Stefano Frixione (CERN)
We plan to review the scope of the searches for a heavy Higgs boson and the current strategies used to compute Higgs cross sections, in the case when the Higgs mass grows large, and width effects become significant. We hope this will foster a discussion on how to improve such searches and strategies. We shall also consider how theoretical results are affecting and will affect experimental searches and their interpretations. Although the SM Higgs case will be our benchmark, we shall address the question of the current significance of these searches also in the context of BSM scenarios. EVO connection will be available: the link will appear on the agenda page 30' before the start of the meeting
