Description

While the existence of a Higgs boson with a mass near 125 GeV has been clearly established, the detailed structure of the entire Higgs sector is yet unclear. Besides the Standard Model interpretation, well-motivated models with extended Higgs sectors are being considered. Such options include the minimal and next-to-minimal supersymmetric extensions (MSSM and NMSSM) of the Standard Model, as well as more generic Two-Higgs Doublet models (2HDM). Direct searches for additional Higgs bosons in b-quark final states are a promising way to address this question. The talk presents recent results from the CMS experiment.
