We propose and theoretically study a possible new resonance caused by strong coupling between the Higgs-Higgs and the W_{L}W_{L} (Z_{L}Z_{L}) scattering channels, without regard to the intensity of the elastic interaction in either channel at low energy (that could be weak as in the standard model). We expose this channel-coupling resonance from unitarity and dispersion relations encoded in the inverse amplitude method, applied to the electroweak chiral Lagrangian with a scalar Higgs boson.

Strongly interacting WLWL, Z(L)Z(L) and hh from unitarized one-loop computations

Recently, a new boson h has been discovered at the LHC which, so far, is compatible with the properties of the SM Higgs. However, the SM is not the most general low-energy dynamics for the minimal

Production of vector resonances at the LHC via WZ-scattering: a unitarized EChL analysis

A bstractIn the present work we study the production of vector resonances at the LHC by means of the vector boson scattering WZ → WZ and explore the sensitivities to these resonances for the expected

Strongly Interacting Electroweak Symmetry Breaking Sector with a Higgs-like light scalar

The apparent finding of a 125-GeV light Higgs boson closes unitarity of the minimal Standard Model (SM), that is weakly interacting: this is an exceptional feature not generally true if new physics

The flair of Higgsflare: Distinguishing electroweak EFTs with $W_LW_L \to n\times h$

The electroweak symmetry-breaking sector is one of the most promising and uncharted parts of the Standard Model; but it seems likely that new electroweak physics may be out of reach of the present

Resonant production of Wh and Zh at the LHC

A bstractWe examine the production of Wh and Zh pairs at the LHC in the context of a Strongly Interacting Symmetry Breaking Sector of the Standard Model. Our description is based on a non-linear

Colorful imprints of heavy states in the electroweak effective theory

A bstractWe analyze heavy states from generic ultraviolet completions of the Standard Model in a model-independent way and investigate their implications on the low-energy couplings of the

Production Cross-Section Estimates for Strongly-Interacting Electroweak-Symmetry Breaking Sector Resonances at Particle Colliders

We are exploring a generic strongly-interacting Electroweak Symmetry Breaking Sector (EWSBS) with the low-energy effective field theory for the four experimentally known particles (W±L, ZL, h) and

New Physics Signals of the Electroweak Chiral Lagrangian in Vector Boson Scattering at the LHC

The Standard Model of fundamental interactions, albeit an incredibly elegant and successful theory, lacks explanations for some experimental and theoretical open questions. Interestingly, many of

Chiral EW Lagrangian

The ATLAS and CMS collaborations at LHC have found a new boson compatible with the SM Higgs, with a mass of nearly \(M_h\simeq 125\,\mathrm{GeV}\). Furthermore, the most probable \(J^P\) quantum
