Constrains on new Higgs scalars from LHC recent data

  1. Aug 4, 2014 #1
    Hi all,

    I wonder if I study new Higgs scalars, How the data of the LHC for searching for heavier scalars
    in h-> WW->lvlv and h -> ZZ-> 4 l channels like in [arXiv:1304.0213] can make constrain on my
    study for the new Higgs?

    How a figure like figure 2 can give me data for my model free parameters ..

    I'm sorry you are not finding help at the moment. Is there any additional information you can share with us?

    CMS recently pre-published a paper excluding heavy Higgs bosons up to the high hundreds of GeVs http://arxiv.org/abs/1405.4158; [Broken] the exclusions from ATLAS aren't quite the same but are comparable.

    More CMS exclusions on neutral MSSM Higgs bosons (h, H and A) are found at http://arxiv.org/pdf/1408.3316.pdf

    The main takeaway is that any MSSM with h or H at 125 GeV +/- needs to have tan beta of around 12 or less. Obviously, these exclusions are not model independent, but they do provide another perspective on the issue of extra Higgs boson exclusions.
