A bstractWhile the properties of the signal that was discovered in the Higgs searches at the LHC are consistent so far with the Higgs boson of the Standard Model (SM), it is crucial to investigate to what extent other interpretations that may correspond to very different underlying physics are compatible with the current results. We use the Next-to-Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (NMSSM) as a well-motivated theoretical framework with a sufficiently rich Higgs phenomenology to address this… 
Search for supplementary Higgs Bosons at the LHC
Despite its incontestable experimental success, the Standard Model of particle physics leaves unanswered many fundamental questions like the hierarchy problem and the origin of dark matter,
The light and heavy Higgs interpretation of the MSSM
We perform a parameter scan of the phenomenological Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (pMSSM) with eight parameters taking into account the experimental Higgs boson results from Run I of the LHC
Exploring the Higgs sector of the MRSSM with a light scalar
A bstractIn a recent paper we showed that the Minimal R-symmetric Supersymmetric Standard Model (MRSSM) can accommodate the observed 125 GeV Higgs boson as the lightest scalar of the model in
Dynamical Higgs field alignment in the NMSSM
Experimental probes of the recently discovered Higgs boson show that its behavior is close to that of the Standard Model (SM) Higgs particle. Extensions of the SM which include extra Higgs bosons are
Phenomenological comparison of models with extended Higgs sectors
A bstractBeyond the Standard Model (SM) extensions usually include extended Higgs sectors. Models with singlet or doublet fields are the simplest ones that are compatible with the ρ parameter
A 96 GeV Higgs Boson in the 2HDM plus Singlet
We discuss a ∼ 3σ signal (local) in the light Higgs-boson search in the diphoton decay mode at ∼ 96 GeV as reported by CMS, together with a ∼ 2σ excess (local) in the bb̄ final state at LEP in the
HL-LHC and ILC sensitivities in the hunt for heavy Higgs bosons
The prediction of additional Higgs bosons is one of the key features of physics beyond the Standard Model (SM) that gives rise to an extended Higgs sector. We assess the sensitivity of the Large
Phenomenology of the inflation-inspired NMSSM at the electroweak scale
The concept of Higgs inflation can be elegantly incorporated in the Next-to-Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (NMSSM). A linear combination of the two Higgs-doublet fields plays the role of the
Diphoton signal of a light pseudoscalar in the NMSSM at the LHC
We explore the detection possibility of light pseudoscalar Higgs boson in the next-to-minimal supersymmetric Standard Model(NMSSM) at the LHC with the center of mass energy, $\sqrt{S}=13$ TeV. We
Confronting the neutralino and chargino sector of the NMSSM with the multilepton searches at the LHC
We test the impact of the ATLAS and CMS multi-lepton searches performed at the LHC with 8 as well as 13 TeV center-of-mass energy (using only the pre-2018 results) on the chargino and neutralino


A non Standard Model Higgs at the LHC as a sign of naturalness
A bstractLight states associated with the hierarchy problem affect the Higgs LHC production and decays. We illustrate this within the MSSM and two simple extensions applying the latest bounds from
Recent Developments in HiggsBounds and a Preview of HiggsSignals
We report on recent developments in the public computer code HiggsBounds, which confronts arbitrary Higgs sector predictions with 95% C.L. exclusion limits from Higgs searches at the LEP, Tevatron
Confronting the MSSM and the NMSSM with the discovery of a signal in the two photon channel at the LHC
We confront the discovery of a boson decaying into two photons, as reported recently by ATLAS and CMS, with the corresponding predictions in the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (MSSM) and the
Singlet-like Higgs bosons at present and future colliders
A bstractThe presence of extra scalar singlets is a feature of several motivated extensions of the Standard Model, and the mixing of such a singlet with the Higgs boson is allowed to be quite large
MSSM interpretations of the LHC discovery: light or heavy Higgs?
A Higgs-like particle with a mass of about 126 GeV has been discovered at the LHC. Within the experimental uncertainties, the measured properties of this new state are compatible with those of the
Study of diphoton decays of the lightest scalar Higgs boson in the Next-to-Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model
The CMS and ATLAS experiments at the LHC have announced the discovery of a Higgs boson with mass at approximately 125 GeV/c(2) in the search for the Standard Model Higgs boson via, notably, the gamma
A light NMSSM pseudoscalar Higgs boson at the LHC redux
A bstractThe Next-to-Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (NMSSM) contains a singlet-like pseudoscalar Higgs boson in addition to the doublet-like pseudoscalar of the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard
Low-mass Higgs bosons in the NMSSM and their LHC implications
A bstractWe study the Higgs sector of the Next to Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (NMSSM) in light of the discovery of the SM-like Higgs boson at the LHC. We perform a broad scan over the NMSSM
A light Higgs scalar in the NMSSM confronted with the latest LHC Higgs data
A bstractIn the Next-to-Minimal Supersymemtric Standard Model (NMSSM), one of the neutral Higgs scalars (CP-even or CP-odd) may be lighter than half of the SM-like Higgs boson. In this case, the
