It is known that the CP-even and CP-odd scalars contribute with an opposite sign to the anomalous magnetic moment of the muon. We study popular scalar extensions of the Standard Model, namely the singlet extension, the 2-Higgs doublet model (2HDM) and the doublet plus singlet extension. We show that these models are incapable of explaining the observed discrepancy in (g−2)_\mu, with the exce ... More

We embed a thermal dark matter (DM) candidate within the clockwork framework. This mechanism allows to stabilize the DM particle over cosmological time because it suppresses its decay into Standard Model (SM) particles. At the same time, pair annihilations are unsuppressed, so that the relic density is set by the usual freeze-out of the DM particle from the thermal bath. The slow decay of the DM c ... More

In this talk we analyze the sources of lepton flavor violation in the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (MSSM) in the processes $l → l’ \gamma$ and $h → ll’$. Using the Flavor Expansion Theorem, a recently developed technique of a purely algebraic mass-insertion expansion of the amplitudes, we recover the direct analytic dependence of the results on the MSSM Lagrangian parameters. Both ... More

The latest Planck CMB data seem to strongly constrain the Hot Dark Matter scenarios, although they stay in tension with direct Hubble constant measurements. However, one can believe that in near future the experimental uncertainly for the effective number of neutrino species N_{eff} will shrink vastly. Therefore, in order to estimate the allowed parameter space of models predicting a Hot Dark Matt ... More

We explore the phenomenology of a unique three-Higgs-doublet model based on the single CP symmetry of order 4 (CP4) without any accidental symmetries. The CP4 symmetry is imposed on the scalar potential and Yukawa interactions, strongly shaping both sectors of the model and leading to a very characteristic phenomenology. Although the model is very constrained by CP4, we find points in the par ... More

We study the discovery prospects of heavy neutral higgs bosons in Beyond the Standard Model scenarios where it cascade decays to a lighter scalar eigenstate which subsequently decays to the Standard Model Higgs. We consider either of 4 leptons and 2 b-jets or of 2 leptons + 4 b-jets final states. We find that these two signatures allows us to both optimally reduce the Standard Model backgrounds an ... More

We set the cosmological constant \Lambda is not canstant but a function of Hubble parameter, and \Lambda can decay with matter and radiation in the expansion universe. We examine the running vacuum model with \Lambda(H) = 3\nuH^2 + \Lambda_0, where \nu is the model parameter and \Lambda_0 is the cosmological constant. From the data of the cosmic microwave background radiation, weak lensing and bar ... More

We study the correlation between the loop-induced decays $h^0$ to photon photon and $h^0$ to gluon gluon in the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (MSSM) with non-minimal quark flavour violation assuming that $h^0$ has a mass of the Higgs boson measured at LHC. We perform a MSSM parameter scan respecting theoretical and experimental constraints. The deviations of these two decay widths from th ... More

Cosmological relaxation is a mechanism that can explain the smallness of the EW scale without the need of new dynamics at the TeV scale. We discuss how to realize this mechanism during the radiation dominated era, where the role of Hubble friction is played by the production of SM gauge bosons.

We analyse new signals of Dark Matter (DM) at the LHC, in a 3-Higgs Doublet Model (3HDM) in which only one doublet acquires a Vacuum Expectation Value (VEV), preserving a Higgs parity Z_2. The other two doublets are inert and do not develop a VEV, leading to a dark scalar sector controlled by the Higgs parity and a Dark Matter (DM) candidate provided by the lightest CP-even dark scalar H1. This le ... More

We assume that the origin of the electroweak (EW) scale is a gauge-invariant scalar-bilinear condensation in a strongly interacting non-abelian gauge sector. The dynamical scale genesis appears as a phase transition at finite temperature, and it can produce a gravitational wave (GW) background in the early Universe.
Presented by Jisuke KUBO on 3 Dec 2017 at 14:00
We consider the electroweak production of multiple Higgs bosons at the LHC in the two-Higgs doublet model (2HDM). We show that in realistic models the electroweak cross sections for production of 2 or 3 Higgs bosons can dominate over QCD production. This is because in a gg-initiated process, production via a resonant Z in the s-channel is prohibited according to the Landau-Yang theorem, which is n ... More

We examine the observability of heavy neutrino (nu_h) signatures of a U(1)' enlarged Standard Model (SM) encompassing three heavy Majorana neutrinos alongside the known light neutrino states at the the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). We show that heavy neutrinos can be rather long-lived particles producing distinctive displaced vertices that can be accessed in the CERN LHC detectors. We concentrate h ... More

Twin Higgs models are the prime illustration of neutral naturalness, where the new particles of the twin sector, gauge singlets of the Standard Model, ameliorate the little hierarchy problem. I will discuss the phenomenological implications of the heavy Higgs of the Mirror Twin Higgs and Fraternal Twin Higgs models at the LHC. In particular, I will show how the scalar sector of the Twin Higgs mode ... More

I will discuss the extension of the Standard Model by a doublet and a complex scalar singlet and a pair of heavy vector quarks. This model provides an extra source of spontaneous CP violation and a strong enough first-order electroweak phase transition to suppress the baryon-violating sphaleron process. This model contains a proper description for baryogengesis and provides a correct relic density ... More

We investigate decay modes of spin-1 heavy vector bosons (V') from the viewpoint of perturbative unitarity in a model-independent manner. Our findings are: [1] Br(W'->WZ) is less than 2% in the system that contains V' and CP-even scalars as well as the SM particles. [2] Contributions of CP-odd scalars help to make Br(W'->WZ) larger than Br(W'->ff) as long as the CP-odd scalars couple to both the S ... More

The choice of initial conditions in multifield inflation has a direct effect on observable quantities. Even after the attractor solution has been reached, the existence of multiple scalar degrees of freedom requires us to exclude certain inflationary trajectories when comparing their predictions to actual values. In the presence of observational uncertainties, this translates to fine-tuning for th ... More

The models with the gauge group $SU(3)_c\times SU(3)_L\times U(1)_X$ (331-models) have been advocated to explain why there are three fermion generations in Nature. As such they provide partial understanding of the flavour sector. The hierarchy of fermion masses in the Standard Model is another puzzle which remains without compelling explanation. In this talk I present a model that incorporates Fro ... More
Presented by Niko KOIVUNEN on 2 Dec 2017 at 15:00
A straightforward method to translate the potential parameters of the 2HDM into physical masses and couplings is presented. The method is applied to CP-odd and CP-even weak-basis invariants of the model in order to express them exclusively in terms of the physical observable masses and couplings.

SO(5)xU(1) gauge-Higgs EW unification gives almost the same phenomenology as the standard model and is consistent with the data at low energies and at 8 TeV LHC. It gives many predictions to be explored and verified at 14 TeV LHC and 250-500 GeV ILC. In addition to the production of Z' bosons around 7 - 9 TeV with broad widths at 14 TeV LHC, distinct signals are predicted in future $e^+ e^-$ ... More

The fermion spectrum observed in nature exhibits a wide range of hierarchies that go from the sub-eV regime up to hundreds of GeV.

The presence of an SU(3) family symmetry at ... More

Among various scenarios of baryon asymmetry of the Universe, electroweak baryogenesis is directly connected with physics of the Higgs sector. We discuss spectra of gravitational waves which are originated by the strongly first order phase transition at the electroweak symmetry breaking, which is required for a successful scenario of electroweak baryogenesis. In the Z_3 symmetric singlet scalar mod ... More

The absence of confirmed signal in dark matter (DM) direct detection (DD) may suggest a weak coupling between DM and the first generation quarks. In this work we consider a real scalar dark matter $S$ which has new Yukawa interactions with charm $c$ and top quark $t$ via a vector-like fermion mediator $\psi$. By setting the Higgs portal to be negligible, we focus on the new Yukawa interactions. Si ... More

The study of the renormalization group improved effective potential of the Standard Model has revealed existence of a local maximum at field strengths of the order of 10^10 GeV. If the Standard Model is valid for very high energy scales, then the possibility of the production of cosmological domain walls in the early Universe occurs. We investigated dynamics of networks of domain walls using l ... More

Minimal scenarios with light (sub-GeV) dark matter whose relic density is obtained from thermal freeze-out must include new light mediators. In particular, a very well-motivated case is that of a new "dark" massive vector gauge boson mediator. The mass term for such mediator is most naturally obtained by a "dark Higgs mechanism" which leads to the presence of an often long-lived dark Higgs boson w ... More

In theories with spontaneous symmetry breaking it is possible to calculate the critical temperature of the phase transition between the symmetric and broken phases of the theory. In the Standard Model and its extensions, the temperature of the electroweak phase transition is interesting for a number of physical questions – for example when considering the observed matter/antimatter asymmetry, or ...

It is possible that dark matter consists of two or more particle species with non-negligible contribution to the relic abundance. This scenario leads to a complicated dynamic in the hidden sector where various processes are responsible for the thermal production of dark matter. We discuss the model with fermionic and vector dark matter candidates that interact with the Standard Model through the H ... More

We examine the phenomenology of the full electroweakino sector of the pMSSM without invoking the adhoc but often employed assumption that the heavier ones are decoupled. We identify several generic models which illustrate the importance of the heavier electroweakinos and constrain them with the LHC 3l + missing E_T data. The constraints are usually stronger than that for decoupled heavier electrow ... More

The off-shell one-loop renormalization of a Higgs effective field theory with a sextic scalar potential is presented. This is achieved by renormalizing the theory once reformulated in terms of two auxiliary fields, allowing to diagrammatically separate the SM and BSM contributions to 1-PI amplitudes. Invariance under an extended Becchi-Rouet-Stora-Tyutin symmetry guarantees the physical equivalenc ... More

With increasing accuracy of CMB data, a thorough, quantitative understanding of the post-inflationary reheating era becomes more and more important for constraining different models of inflation.

The HTM is an extension of the Standard Model realising the type II seesaw mechanism [1]. The additional scalar triplet contains the doubly charged particle H++, which contributes to lepton flavour violating (LFV) processes. We discu ... More

In the standard model, the negative mass parameter is introduced in the Higgs potential to occur electroweak symmetry breaking. In a class of models based on classically scale invariance, parameters with mass dimensions in the Lagrangian are prohibited by classically scale invariance and electroweak symmetry breaking dynamically occurs by Coleman and Weinberg mechanism. In this talk, I focus on ... More

Experimental limits on the masses of SUSY states from searches at the LHC are becoming quite stringent, especially for the gluino of the MSSM. The MRSSM is an alternative supersymmetric model which features an continuous R-symmetry and it leads to a Dirac-type gluino. Compellingly, it is natural for a Dirac gluino to have a large mass outside the current bounds. For an accurate prediction of ... More

The possibility that alignment arises in 2HDM as a consequence of the high-scale behaviour of the theory is discussed here. Requiring the 2HDM to be bounded from below and perturbative up to scales as low as a few TeV forces the lightest CP-even scalar to have SM-like properties for model Type II. Analogous conclusions are found for model I, if the charged higgs mass is larger than about 400 GeV. ... More

Dynamical relaxation provides an interesting solution to the hierarchy problem, which allows to produce a large hierarchy of scales without abandoning the naturalness principle. The observed value of the electroweak scale is then a consequence of an interaction between the Higgs boson and a new axion-like field, a relaxion. Attempts at extending this mechanism to a two-doublet scenario (arXiv:1612 ... More

In this talk we present a new method of renormalisation-group (RG) improvement of effective potentials in models with extended scalar sectors. The method amounts to running with the renormalisation scale to a surface in the parameter space where quantum corrections to the effective potential vanish. This can be equivalently understood as fixing the renormalisation scale to a suitably chosen field- ... More

In the framework of the $B-L$ Supersymmetric Standard Model (BLSSM), we assess the ability of ground and space based experiments to establish the nature of its prevalent Dark Matter (DM) candidate, the sneutrino, which could either be CP-even or -odd. Firstly, by benchmarking this theory construct against the results obtained by the Planck spacecraft, we extract the portions of the BLSSM parameter ... More

We study a vector dark matter (VDM) model in which the VDM couples to the Standard Model sector via the Higgs portal. As a result, the VDM can be produced via the freeze-in mechanism. In particular, we find that the electroweak phase transition have a great impact on the prediction of the VDM relic density. We further assume that the dark Higgs which gives the VDM mass is so light that it can indu ... More
