Description

Comparing models with modified Higgs sectors to the available measurements and limits is a complicated task due to the large number of relevant experimental results. Codes such as HiggsBounds and HiggsSignals compare any model prediction to the experimental results from scalar searches and measurements. Interpreting the model-independent experimental results in specific new physics scenarios requires detailed information on signal compositions and correlations from the experimental side. We illustrate the precision reachable for different kinds of experimental input and comment on possible improvements to the presentation of experimental results to allow a precise and straightforward reinterpretation.
