The rare decay $h \rightarrow \Upsilon \gamma$ has a very small rate in the Standard Model, due to a strong cancellation between the direct and indirect diagrams. Models with a changed $hbb$ coupling can thus lead to a great increase in this decay. Current limits on two Higgs doublet models still allow for the possibility that the $hbb$ coupling might have a sign opposite to the Standard Model; the so-called "wrong-sign". We show how $h \rightarrow \Upsilon \gamma$ can be used to put limits on… Expand

Probing loop effects in wrong-sign Yukawa region of 2HDM
In the framework of 2HDM, we explore the wrong-sign Yukawa region with direct and indirect searches up to one-loop level. The direct searches include the latest $H/A \to f\bar f, VV, Vh, hh$ reportsExpand
