Asymmetric Di-Higgs Signals of the N2HDM-$U(1)$

The two-Higgs-doublet model with a $U(1)_H$ gauge symmetry (N2HDM-$U(1)$) has several advantages compared to the $Z_2$ version (N2HDM-$Z_2$): It is purely based on gauge symmetries, involves only

Searching for Low-Mass Resonances Decaying into $W$ Bosons

In this article, we recast and combine the CMS and ATLAS analyses of the Standard Model Higgs boson decaying to a pair of $W$ bosons in order to search for low-mass resonances in this channel. We



Trial factors for the look elsewhere effect in high energy physics

When searching for a new resonance somewhere in a possible mass range, the significance of observing a local excess of events must take into account the probability of observing such an excess

Asymptotic formulae for likelihood-based tests of new physics

We describe likelihood-based statistical tests for use in high energy physics for the discovery of new phenomena and for construction of confidence intervals on model parameters. We focus on the

We investigate Bayesian and frequentist approaches to resonance searches using a toy model based on an ATLAS search for the Higgs boson in the diphoton channel. We draw pseudo-data from the

Asymptotic Properties of Maximum Likelihood Estimators and Likelihood Ratio Tests under Nonstandard Conditions

Abstract Large sample properties of the likelihood function when the true parameter value may be on the boundary of the parameter space are described. Specifically, the asymptotic distribution of

Testing One Hypothesis Multiple Times: The Multidimensional Case

A computationally efficient inferential tool to perform hypothesis testing under nonstandard regularity conditions in the multidimensional setting and introduces a simple algorithm to compute the expected Euler characteristics of the excursion set of the underlying random field.

Detecting sparse cone alternatives for Gaussian random fields, with an application to fMRI

This work approximate the P-value of the maximum of a random field of test statistics for a cone alternative at each point in a sample of Gaussian random fields using the Gaussian Kinematic Formula.

A practical solution to the pervasive problems ofp values

The BIC provides an approximation to a Bayesian hypothesis test, does not require the specification of priors, and can be easily calculated from SPSS output.

The garden of forking paths : Why multiple comparisons can be a problem , even when there is no “ fishing expedition ” or “ p-hacking ” and the research hypothesis was posited ahead of time ∗

Researcher degrees of freedom can lead to a multiple comparisons problem, even in settings where researchers perform only a single analysis on their data. The problem is there can be a large number

I would like to thank Junk and Lyons [1] for beginning a discussion about replication in high-energy physics (HEP). Junk and Lyons ultimately argue that HEP learned its lessons the hard way through
