We apply a generalized spin-basis analysis to associated Higgs production and gauge boson pair production at LEP. This framework allows us to identify a choice of spin axes for the processes e+ e- --> ZH,ZZ which leads to strikingly different correlations among the decay products, even well above threshold. This spin basis optimizes the difference in the angular correlations for these two processes. In contrast, the same distributions display little contrast when the helicity basis is used. We… 
MC@NLO for the hadronic decay of Higgs bosons in associated production with vector bosons
In this article we describe simulations of the hadronic decay of Higgs bosons produced in association with vector bosons at linear and hadronic colliders. We use the Monte Carlo at
Z boson pair production at CERN LHC in a stabilized Randall-Sundrum scenario
We study the Z boson pair production at LHC in the Randall-Sundrum scenario with the Goldberger-Wise stabilization mechanism. It is shown that comprehensive account of the Kaluza-Klein graviton and
New methods for Scattering Amplitudes in Gauge Theories
In the thesis, we present the application of on-shell and unitarity-based techniques and of the differential equation methods via Magnus expansion to the evaluation of the one-loop scattering
Generalised Unitarity, Integrand Decomposition, and Hidden properties of QCD Scattering Amplitudes in Dimensional Regularisation
In this thesis, we present new developments for the analytic calculation of tree- and multi-loop level amplitudes. Similarly, we study and extend their analytic properties. We propose a
PYTHIA 6.2: Physics and manual
The PYTHIA program can be used to generate high-energy-physics `events', i.e. sets of outgoing particles produced in the interactions between two incoming particles. The objective is to provide as
On the four-dimensional formulation of dimensionally regulated amplitudes
Elaborating on the four-dimensional helicity scheme, we propose a pure four-dimensional formulation (FDF) of the $$d$$d-dimensional regularization of one-loop scattering amplitudes. In our
To $${d}$$d, or not to $${d}$$d: recent developments and comparisons of regularization schemes
We give an introduction to several regularization schemes that deal with ultraviolet and infrared singularities appearing in higher-order computations in quantum field theories. Comparing the


Physics at LEP2
The main physics topics of interest at LEP2, the CERN electron-positron collider with center-of-mass energy in the range (161-192) GeV, are reviewed. Progresses in both the precision tests of the
The Higgs Hunter's Guide
The Higgs Hunter's Guide is a definitive and comprehensive guide to the physics of Higgs bosons. In particular, it discusses the extended Higgs sectors required by those recent theoretical approaches
