Impact of electroweak corrections on neutral Higgs boson decays in extended Higgs sectors

Precision predictions play an important role in the search for indirect New Physics effects in the Higgs sector itself. For the electroweak (EW) corrections of the Higgs bosons in extended Higgs

Estimations for the single diffractive production of the Higgs boson at the Tevatron and the LHC

The single diffractive production of the standard model Higgs boson is computed using the diffractive factorization formalism, taking into account a parametrization for the Pomeron structure function

Axial-vector nucleon-to-delta transition form factors using the complex-mass renormalization scheme

Abstract We investigate the axial-vector nucleon-to-delta transition form factors in the framework of relativistic baryon chiral perturbation theory at the one-loop order using the complex-mass

Standard SANC modules for NLO QCD radiative corrections to single top-quark production

In this paper we present the results obtained with the newly created standard SANC modules for calculation of the NLO QCD corrections to single top-quark-production processes in s and t channels at

Higgs Boson Production and Decay

The processes H! ffγ(g), pp ! q+ q ! H+ γ(g) and pp ! q(q)+ g ! H+ q(q) pose severe challenges to the experimental analysis. They represent ra re decays and production mechanisms of the Higgs boson

The complex-mass scheme and unitarity in perturbative quantum field theory

We investigate unitarity within the complex-mass scheme, a convenient universal scheme for perturbative calculations involving unstable particles in quantum field theory which guarantees exact gauge



Threshold effects in two-photon decays of Higgs particles

AbstractThe couplings of Higgs particles to two photons are analyzed in the threshold region, where the Higgs mass is about twice the loop-particle mass leading to possible bound state formation. The

Elimination of Threshold Singularities in the Relation Between On-Shell and Pole Widths

In a previous communication by two of us, Phys. Rev. Lett. 81, 1373 (1998), the gauge-dependent deviations of the on-shell mass and total decay width from their gauge-independent pole counterparts

b anti-b Higgs production at the LHC: Yukawa corrections and the leading Landau singularity

At tree-level Higgs production in association with a b-quark pair proceeds through the small Yukawa bottom coupling in the Standard Model. Even in the limit where this coupling vanishes, electroweak
