# Scalar dark matter effects in Higgs and top quark decays

@article{He2007ScalarDM, title={Scalar dark matter effects in Higgs and top quark decays}, author={X. He and Tong Li and Xue–qian Li and Ho-Chin Tsai}, journal={Modern Physics Letters A}, year={2007}, volume={22}, pages={2121-2129} }

We study possible observational effects of scalar dark matter, the darkon D, in Higgs h and top quark t decay processes, h → DD and t → cDD in the minimal Standard Model (SM) and its two Higgs doublet model (THDM) extension supplemented with a SM singlet darkon scalar field D. We find that the darkon D can have a mass in the range of sub-GeV to several tens of GeV, interesting for LHC and ILC colliders, to produce the required dark matter relic density. In the SM with a darkon, t → cDD only… Expand

Hidden Higgs Boson at the LHC and Light Dark Matter Searches

- Physics

It is shown that, if the basic Yukawa coupling matrices are of the Fritzsch form or some generalizations thereof, then the neutral flavor-changing couplings have a hierarchical structure given by the lower bound of the order of ${\ensuremath{\Delta}}_{\mathrm{ds}}$ times 1 TeV on the mass of the exchanged scalar from the neutral-kaon mass difference.
