We review the three Monte Carlo generators that are available for simulating the central exclusive reaction, pp → p + X + p. The central exclusive mechanism is defined as pp → p + X + p with no radiation emitted between the intact outgoing beam hadrons and the central system X. The study of central exclusive Higgs boson production has been aided with the(More)
Detecting Higgs bosons in the b ¯ b decay channel using forward proton tagging at the LHC Abstract A detailed study is presented of the search for Higgs bosons in the b-decay channel in the central exclusive production process at the LHC. We present results for proton tagging detectors at both 220m and 420m around ATLAS or CMS. We consider two benchmark(More)
We discuss the prospects of searching for the neutral Higgs bosons of the triplet model in central exclusive production at the LHC. A detailed Monte Carlo analysis is presented for six benchmark scenarios for the Higgs boson, H 0 1 , these cover m H 0 1 = 120, 150 GeV and doublet-triplet mixing of c H = 0.2, 0.5 or 0.8. We find that, for appropriate values(More)
