CPT Student Seminar: LHC phenomenology and Monte Carlo treatment of loop-induced contributions to Z-associated Higgs production

Presented by Silvan Kuttimalai, Durham University

14 December 2015 17:00 in OC218

Despite being a subdominant production mode at the LHC, the ZH-channel is of vital importance for measurements in certain Higgs decay channels. Searches for invisible Higgs decays as well as analyses of H->bbar decays heavily rely on this channel. The presence of non-negligible loop-induced terms in the "Higgsstrahlung" process calls for advanced calculational techniques but also allows for the determination of the sign of the top Yukawa coupling. In this talk I will address both aspects in the context of invisible Higgs decays and decays to bottom-quark pairs.
