  • We study the LHC search constraints on models that extend the Standard Model (SM) with an inert, complex scalar electroweak multiplet, $\Sigma$, with isospin T=5/2 (sextet) or T=7/2 (octet) and identical hypercharge to the SM Higgs doublet. Imposing a global $Z_2$ symmetry under which $\Sigma \to -\Sigma$, the lightest member of $\Sigma$ is stable and we require that it be neutral ($\zeta^{0,r}$) to avoid cosmological constraints from charged relics. Pair production of scalars by electroweak… CONTINUE READING
