Abstract

We present the first study of the production of a
Standard Model Higgs boson at a lepton collider in association
with a pair of W bosons, e+e− → W+W− H, in the
inverse seesaw model. Taking into account all relevant experimental
and theoretical constraints, we find sizable effects
due to the additional heavy neutrinos up to −38% on the
total cross-section at a center-of-mass energy of 3 TeV, and
even up to −66% with suitable cuts. This motivates a detailed
sensitivity analysis of the process e+e− → W+W− H as it
could provide a new, very competitive experimental probe of
low-scale neutrino mass models.
