Measurement of $\sigma(e^+e^- \to HZ) \times {\cal B}r(H \to ZZ^*)$ at the 250 GeV ILC

  title={Measurement of \$\sigma(e^+e^- \to HZ) \times \{\cal B\}r(H \to ZZ^*)\$ at the 250 GeV ILC},
  author={E. E. Antonov and Alexey Drutskoy},
We report on studies of the e+e− → HZ process with the subsequent decay of the Higgs boson H → ZZ, where the ZZ combination is reconstructed in the final states with two jets and two leptons. The analysis is performed using Monte Carlo data samples obtained with detailed ILD detector simulation assuming the integrated luminosity 2 ab−1, the beam polarizations Pe−e+ = (−0.8,+0.3), and the center-of-mass energy √ s = 250 GeV. The analysis is also repeated for the case of two 0.9 ab−1 data samples…

Higgs Physics at the HL-LHC and HE-LHC
The discovery of the Higgs boson in 2012, by the ATLAS and CMS experiments, was a success achieved with only a percent of the entire dataset foreseen for the LHC. It opened a landscape of
Jet reconstruction at high-energy electron–positron colliders
In this paper we study the performance in $$e^+e^-$$e+e- collisions of classical $$e^+e^-$$e+e- jet reconstruction algorithms, longitudinally invariant algorithms and the recently proposed Valencia
Handbook of LHC Higgs cross sections: 4. Deciphering the nature of the Higgs sector
This Report summarizes the results of the activities of the LHC Higgs Cross Section Working Group in the period 2014-2016. The main goal of the working group was to present the state-of-the-art of
The International Linear Collider: A Global Project
A large, world-wide community of physicists is working to realise an exceptional physics program of energy-frontier, electron-positron collisions with the International Linear Collider (ILC). This
WHIZARD—simulating multi-particle processes at LHC and ILC
We describe the universal Monte-Carlo (parton-level) event generator WHIZARD (, version 2. The program automatically computes complete tree-level matrix elements,
Pandora Particle Flow Algorithm
A high-energy e + e collider, such as the ILC or CLIC, is arguably the best option to comple- ment and extend the LHC physics programme. A lepton collider will allow for exploration of Standard Model
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
Improved formalism for precision Higgs coupling fits
Future e+e- colliders give the promise of model-independent determinations of the couplings of the Higgs boson. In this paper, we present an improved formalism for extracting Higgs boson couplings
