The Standard Model Effective Field Theory (SMEFT) provides a consistent framework for comparing precision measurements at the LHC to the Standard Model. The observation of statistically significant non-zero SMEFT coefficients would correspond to physics beyond the Standard Model (BSM) of some sort. A more difficult question to answer is what, if any, detailed information about the nature of the underlying high scale model can be obtained from these measurements. In this work, we consider the… 

Uncovering the high-scale Higgs singlet model

The scalar singlet model extends the Standard Model with the addition of a new gauge singlet scalar. We re-examine the limits on the new scalar from oblique parameter fits and from a global fit to

The top quark electro-weak couplings after LHC Run 2

Abstract Recent measurements at the Large Hadron Collider allow for a robust and precise characterisation of the electro-weak interactions of the top quark. We present the results of a global

Cornering the Two Higgs Doublet Model Type II

Abstract We perform a comprehensive study of the allowed parameter space of the Two Higgs Doublet Model of Type II (2HDM-II). Using the theoretical framework flavio we combine the most recent

The Higgs boson implications and prospects for future discoveries

The Higgs boson, a fundamental scalar, was discovered at CERN in 2012 with mass 125 GeV, a mass that turned out to be a remarkable choice of Nature. In the Standard Model of particle physics, the

A new perspective on the electroweak phase transition in the Standard Model Effective Field Theory

Abstract A first-order Electroweak Phase Transition (EWPT) could explain the observed baryon-antibaryon asymmetry and its dynamics could yield a detectable gravitational wave signature, while the

EFT diagrammatica: UV roots of the CP-conserving SMEFT

The Standard Model Effective Field Theory (SMEFT) is an established theoretical framework that parametrises the impact a UV theory has on low-energy observables. Such parametrization is achieved by

The flavor of UV physics

New physics not far above the TeV scale should leave a pattern of virtual effects in observables at lower energies. What do these effects tell us about the flavor structure of a UV theory? Within the

SMEFT analysis of vector boson scattering and diboson data from the LHC Run II

We present a systematic interpretation of vector boson scattering (VBS) and diboson measurements from the LHC in the framework of the dimension-six Standard Model Effective Field Theory (SMEFT). We

SMEFTsim 3.0 — a practical guide

The description of Higgs production via gluon-fusion in the SM has been significantly improved, two flavor assumptions for studies in the top quark sector have been added, and a new feature has been implemented, that enables the treatment of linearized SMEFT corrections to the propagators of unstable particles.

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 the



The gauge-Higgs legacy of the LHC Run I

A bstractThe effective Lagrangian expansion provides a framework to study effects of new physics at the electroweak scale. To make full use of LHC data in constraining higher-dimensional operators we

The combined measurements of Higgs boson production and decay are performed based on up to 80 fb[Formula: see text] of proton–proton collision data collected at [Formula: see text] = 13 TeV by the

Bounds and decays of new heavy vector-like top partners

We study the phenomenology of new heavy vector-like fermions that couple to the third generation quarks via Yukawa interactions, covering all the allowed representations under the standard model

Vectorlike fermions and Higgs effective field theory revisited

Heavy vector-like quarks (VLQs) appear in many models of beyond the Standard Model physics. Direct experimental searches require these new quarks to be heavy, $\gsim$ 800-1000 GeV. We perform a

Effective description of general extensions of the Standard Model: the complete tree-level dictionary

A bstractWe compute all the tree-level contributions to the Wilson coefficients of the dimension-six Standard-Model effective theory in ultraviolet completions with general scalar, spinor and vector

Pushing Higgs Effective Theory to its Limits

At the LHC, an effective theory of the Higgs sector allows us to analyze kinematic distributions in addition to inclusive rates, although there is no clear hierarchy of scales. We systematically

Benchmarks for Higgs effective theory: extended Higgs sectors

A bstractPrecise measurements of SM particles properties at the LHC allows to look for heavy New Physics in the context of an Effective Field Theory (EFT). These searches, however, often rely on

A Higgs conundrum with vector fermions

Many models of Beyond the Standard Model physics involve heavy colored fermions. We study models where the new fermions have vector interactions and examine the connection between electroweak
