Higgs diffractive production

Higgs Diffractive Production

Ivan Schmidt

Trieste 2006


Higgs detection

  • Unknown mass

  • Small production probability and large backgrounds

  • Coupling ~ mass hard to observe in pp

But :

1)

Small (1% probability for c)

~

2)

Reduce backgrounds from multiparticle production

Diffractive production in fragmentation region of one of the protons

Higgs detection

Concrete possibilities :

1)

Central region (MKKRS)

2)

Heavy quarks in proton

  • Large rapidity gap

  • Missing mass measurement


Large production

1) Non-perturbative (stationary state)

300 MeV

2) Perturbative (quantum fluctuation)

Experimentally:

DIS data, excess at large

Large production


Exclusive diffraction calculation

Form factors (gluon coupling to all quarks)

Vanish as

(suppression)

Born

Exclusive diffraction calculation


Calculational steps

1) Factorized form for proton wf

2) Calculate at t=0 , and assume Pomeron-type t-dependence

3) Replace two-gluon proton vertex by gluon density

Includes higher order corrections

fitted to data

Only odd powers of

change of orbital angular momentum

  • initial in S-wave

  • final in P-wave

H is scalar

( different for : P-wave initial state)

5) wavefunction

6) Relative motion of and qqq clusters

a) Non-perturbative heavy flavors

b) Perturbative heavy flavors

4) Higgs wavefunction (P-wave)

Final result

  • For LHC energy (14 TeV cm)

  • Perturbative heavy flavors

  • Includes absorptive corrections ( 20% at LHC)

  • IT falls for GeV

  • Heavy quark probability ~


Larger cross section

1) From colorless heavy pair

Does not have proton form factor

But

Amplitude

suppressed

2) Nuclear enhancement

Not as big as one might think

Stronger absorptive corrections

Factor of ~ 10 for Pb

Larger cross section


Conclusions

  • Heavy quark components carry high momentum fractions.

  • Higgs production in fragmentation region.

  • Diffractive production

  • Also possible: , .

  • Difficult detection .
