  author={Wen Han Chiu and Zhen Liu and L. Wang},
  journal={Physical Review D},
We explored the possibility that Higgs coupling to new physics violates flavor universality. In particular, we parameterize such models with dimension-six effective operators which modify the coupling between the first generation quarks, Higgs boson, and $Z$ boson. Through the use of boosted Higgsstrahlung events at both the HL-LHC and potential future hadron colliders, as well as existing ATLAS data for background estimates, we projected constraints on the scale of new physics as a function of… Expand

Electroweak restoration at the LHC and beyond: The Vh channel
Electroweak symmetry breaking is a key feature of the Standard Model, and at high energies we should see ``restoration'' of the full symmetry. In this paper, the authors show how theExpand
A new precision process at FCC-hh: the diphoton leptonic Wh channel
The increase in luminosity and center of mass energy at the FCC-hh will open up new clean channels where BSM contributions are enhanced at high energy. In this paper we study one such channel, Wh →Expand
Precision from the diphoton Zh channel at FCC-hh
The future 100 TeV FCC-hh hadron collider will give access to rare but clean final states which are out of reach of the HL-LHC. One such process is the $Zh$ production channel in the $(\nu\bar{\nu} /Expand


Flavor from the electroweak scale
A bstractWe discuss the possibility that flavor hierarchies arise from the electroweak scale in a two Higgs doublet model, in which the two Higgs doublets jointly act as the flavon. Quark masses andExpand
Higgs Pair Production as a Signal of Enhanced Yukawa Couplings.
This work identifies an interesting region of parameter space leading to enhanced Yukawa couplings as well as enhanced di-Higgs gluon fusion production at the LHC reach and encourages dedicated searches based on differential distributions as a novel way to indirectly probe enhanced Higgs couplings to light fermions.
