The first run of the LHC was successful in that it saw the discovery of the elusive Higgs boson, a particle that is consistent with the SM hypothesis. There are a number of excesses in Run 1 ATLAS and CMS results which can be interpreted as being due to the existence of another heavier scalar particle. This particle has decay modes which we have studied using LHC Run 1 data. Using a minimalistic model, we can predict the kinematics of these final states and compare the prediction against data…

The emergence of multi-lepton anomalies at the LHC and their compatibility with new physics at the EW scale
Abstract A recent study [1] has shown that a simplified model predicting a heavy scalar of mass 270 GeV (H ) that decays to a Standard Model (SM) Higgs boson in association with a scalar singlet
Production of the Madala boson in association with top quarks
The Madala hypothesis is the prediction of a new heavy scalar, the Madala boson, that has had previous success in explaining several anomalies in LHC Run 1 and 2 data. In the literature, the Madala

The discovery of the Higgs boson at the Large Hadron Collider in Switzerland marks the beginning of a new era: Physics beyond the Standard Model (SM). A model is proposed to describe numerous Run I
The production of the heavy scalar H in association with top and anti-top quarks
From observing how the standard model (SM) is set up, electroweak symmetry breaking (EWSB) is employed, extending to the Higgs mechanism and giving rise to massive bosons from massless Goldstone
Phenomenology of additional scalar bosons at the LHC
The confirmation of the Higgs boson in Run I data at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) and the excesses in recent Run II data suggest scenarios beyond the Standard Model (SM). We pursue a study in a

The Madala hypothesis was formulated to explain anomalies in LHC data from run-1. Subsequently, these anomalies have endured into run-2 and been strengthened. This makes the analysis of the proposal
Clues on the Majorana scale from scalar resonances at the LHC
In order to address the observation of the neutrino oscillations and the metastability of the Standard Model, we extend the fermion sector with two right-handed (i.e. sterile) neutrinos, and the
Di-Higgs enhancement by neutral scalar as probe of new colored sector
We study a class of models in which the Higgs pair production is enhanced at hadron colliders by an extra neutral scalar. The scalar particle is produced by the gluon fusion via a loop of new colored
Phenomenological signatures of additional scalar bosons at the LHC
We investigate the search prospects for new scalars beyond the standard model at the large hadron collider (LHC). In these studies two real scalars S and $$\chi $$χ have been introduced in a two
Constraints on a 2HDM with a singlet scalar and implications in the search for heavy bosons at the LHC
We study a two-Higgs doublet model extended with an additional singlet scalar (2HDM+S), and provide a brief introduction to the model and its parameters. Constraints are applied to the parameter

Direct detection of Higgs–portal dark matter at the LHC
We consider the process in which a Higgs particle is produced in association with jets and show that monojet searches at the LHC already provide interesting constraints on the invisible decays of a
