Searching for the triplet higgs sector via central exclusive production at the LHC

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


We discuss the prospects of searching for the neutral Higgs bosons of the triplet model in central exclusive production at the LHC. A detailed Monte Carlo analysis is presented for six benchmark scenarios for the Higgs boson, H 1 0, these cover m H 1 0 = 120, 150 GeV and doublet-triplet mixing of c H = 0.2, 0.5 or 0.8. We find that, for appropriate values of c H, an excellent Higgs mass measurement is possible for the neutral Higgs in the triplet model, and discuss how to distinguish the triplet model Higgs boson from the Higgs boson of the Standard Model. © 2009 SISSA.
