CPT Student Seminar: Top Quark Mass Effects and BSM Signals in the Higgs-Gluon Coupling - Monte Carlo Implementation and Phenomenological Applications

Presented by Silvan Kuttimalai, Durham University

26 January 2015 17:00 in OC218

Subject of this talk will be the structure of the loop-induced coupling between QCD gluons and the Higgs boson, on which the dominant Higgs production channel at the LHC relies. An infinite Top mass approximation is customarily applied in order to render higher order calculations in this loop-induced channel feasible. We will present our most recent improvements on these approximations in Monte Carlo simulations. Furthermore, the phenomenological potential of studying the gluon fusion Higgs production channel in search for BSM signals in the Higgs-gluon coupling will be discussed.
