Higgs coupling measurements at the LHC.

Englert, Christoph and Kogler, Roman and Schulz, Holger and Spannowsky, Michael (2016) 'Higgs coupling measurements at the LHC.', European physical journal C., 76 (7). p. 393.


Due to the absence of tantalising hints for new physics during the LHC’s Run 1, the extension of the Higgs sector by dimension-six operators will provide the new phenomenological standard for searches of non-resonant extensions of the Standard Model. Using all dominant and subdominant Higgs production mechanisms at the LHC, we compute the constraints on Higgs physics-relevant dimension-six operators in a global and correlated fit. We show in how far these constraints can be improved by new Higgs channels becoming accessible at higher energy and luminosity, both through inclusive cross sections as well as through highly sensitive differential distributions. This allows us to discuss the sensitivity to new effects in the Higgs sector that can be reached at the LHC if direct hints for physics beyond the SM remain elusive. We discuss the impact of these constraints on well-motivated BSM scenarios.
