In this note we give interim recommendations on how to evaluate LHC cross sections for (neutral) Higgs production and Higgs branching ratios in the general (CP-conserving) Two-Higgs-Doublet Model (2HDM). The current status of available higher-order corrections to Higgs production and decay in this model is discussed, and the existing public codes implementing these calculations are described. Numerical results are presented for a set of reference scenarios, demonstrating the very good agreement…

One Higgs was found. Are there more? In this work we discuss simple extension of the scalar sec- tor of the Standard Model (SM) used as benchmark models by ATLAS and CMS in the searches for new
Higgs pair production via gluon fusion in the Two-Higgs-Doublet Model
A bstractWe study the production of Higgs boson pairs via gluon fusion at the LHC in the Two-Higgs-Doublet Model. We present predictions at NLO accuracy in QCD, matched to parton showers through the
Search for a lighter Higgs boson in Two Higgs Doublet Models
A bstractWe consider present constraints on Two Higgs Doublet Models, both from the LHC at Run 1 and from other sources in order to explore the possibility of constraining a neutral scalar or
Prospects for charged Higgs searches at the LHC
The goal of this report is to summarize the current situation and discuss possible search strategies for charged scalars, in non-supersymmetric extensions of the Standard Model at the LHC. Such

Strong first order electroweak phase transition in the CP-conserving 2HDM revisited
A bstractThe discovery of the Higgs boson by the LHC experiments ATLAS and CMS has marked a milestone for particle physics. Yet, there are still many open questions that cannot be answered within the
Benchmarks for Higgs boson pair production and heavy Higgs boson searches in the two-Higgs-doublet model of type II
The search for additional Higgs particles and the exact measurements of Higgs (self-) couplings is a major goal of future collider experiments. In this paper we investigate the possible sizes of new
Precision Calculations in New Physics Models
Even after the discovery of a Higgs boson fundamental questions of particle physics remain unanswered. Neither the origin of the baryon-antibaryon asymmetry of the universe, nor the nature of Dark


Finite top mass effects for hadronic Higgs production at next-to-next-to-leading order
The first four terms of an expansion in MH2/Mt2 of the total inclusive cross section for Higgs production in gluon fusion are evaluated through next-to-next-to-leading order QCD. A reliable and
