Anomalous Higgs Couplings
Presented by Mr. Gilad AMAR on 10 Jul 2013 from 17:40 to 18:40
Type: Poster Presentation
Track: Track B - Nuclear, Particle and Radiation Physics
With the discovery of a Higgs boson at the LHC a new era in particle physics opens up. The Vector Boson Fusion (VBF) production mechanism provides an invaluable opportunity to explore the spin-CP of the Higgs boson. It has been recently pointed out (A. Djouadi, R.M. Godbole, B. Mellado, K. Mohan http://arxiv.org/abs/arXiv:1301.4965) that new physics in the HVV vertex implies strong variations in the acceptance of the Higgs boson observation with the VBF production mechanism. Phenomenology results for ep and pp collisions will be shown.
