Gauld, R. and Pecjak, B.D. and Scott, D.J. (2016) 'QCD radiative corrections for h→bb¯ in the standard model dimension-6 effective field theory.', Physical review D., 94 (7). 074045.
We calculate the O(αs) QCD corrections to the inclusive h→bb¯ decay rate in the dimension-6 standard model effective field theory (SMEFT). The QCD corrections multiplying the dimension-6 Wilson coefficients which alter the hbb¯-vertex at tree-level are proportional to the standard model (SM) ones, so next-to-leading order results can be obtained through a simple rescaling of the tree-level decay rate. On the other hand, contributions from the operators QbG and QHG, which alter the gbb¯-vertex and introduce a hgg-vertex respectively, enter at O(αs) and induce sizeable corrections which are unrelated to the SM ones and cannot be anticipated through a renormalization-group analysis. We present compact analytic results for these contributions, which we recommend to be included in future phenomenological studies.
