The possibility of a scalar messenger that can couple the Standard Model (SM) to a hidden sector has been discussed in a variety of contexts in the literature in recent years. We consider the case that a new scalar singlet charged under an exotic spontaneously broken Abelian gauge symmetry mixes weakly with the SM Higgs resulting in two scalar mass states, one of which has heavily suppressed couplings to the SM particles. Previous phenomenological studies have focussed on potential signatures…

Emergence of the electroweak scale through the Higgs portal
A bstractHaving discovered a candidate for the final piece of the Standard Model, the Higgs boson, the question remains why its vacuum expectation value and its mass are so much smaller than the


Exploring the Higgs portal with 10 fb−1 at the LHC
A bstractWe consider the impact of new exotic colored and/or charged matter interacting through the Higgs portal on Standard Model Higgs boson searches at the LHC. Such Higgs portal couplings can
Heavy Higgs production at future colliders
The WW and ZZ mechanisms for production of heavy Higgs bosons are further studied in detail. The exact analytic distribution Ekdσd3k with k being the Higgs momentum is derived. In particular, the
LHC: Standard Higgs and hidden Higgs
Interpretations of Higgs searches critically involve production cross sections and decay probabilities for different analysis channels. Mixing effects can reduce production rates, while invisible
Exploring the Higgs portal
We study the Higgs portal from the Standard-Model to a hidden sector and examine which elements of the extended theory can be discovered and explored at the LHC. Our model includes two Higgs bosons
The physics of heavy Z' gauge bosons
The $\mathrm{U}{(1)}^{\ensuremath{'}}$ symmetry associated with a possible heavy ${Z}^{\ensuremath{'}}$ would have profound implications for particle physics and cosmology. The motivations for such
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
CompHEP 4.4 - Automatic Computations from Lagrangians to Events
Abstract We present a new version of the CompHEP program (version 4.4). We describe shortly new issues implemented in this version, namely, simplification of quark flavor combinatorics for the
Physics and Detectors at CLIC: CLIC Conceptual Design Report
This report describes the physics potential and experiments at a future multi- TeV e+e collider based on the Compact Linear Collider (CLIC) technology. The physics scenarios considered include
WW Scattering at CLIC
Resonance formation in WW scattering at a linear e+e− collider with a center of mass energy of 3 TeV is studied. The detector response of the events is simulated and hadronic machine background from
Physics Signatures at CLIC
A set of signatures for physics processes of potential interests for the CLIC programme at 1 - 5 TeV are discussed. These signatures, that may correspond to the manifestation of different scenarios
