Add one singlet to the Higgs potential

- Higgs is indistinguishable from SM
- Singlet is shifted so it obtains no VEV

-Singlet only couples to the Higgs

Two specific cases to study

Case 1: Singlet couples to the Higgs (O’Connell et al.)

Case 2: Impose reflection symmetry (McDonald & Burgess et al.)

Higgs BF same as SM

Exception: mH2> 2mH1 then H2 H1 H1 is open

Higgs coupling reduced universally by mixing parameter

BF of H1 same as SM Higgs of equal mass

Extended decays through singlet:

WH lv + 4b

WHlv + 2b + 2

- S-S symmetry prevents S decay
- DM candidate

- DM singlet annihilates through the Higgs boson via

Annihilation processes:

- Higgs decays to invisible states which reduces the rate of traditional modes.

- Weak boson fusion:
- Extract signal with cuts on azimuthal correlation of forward jets and large missing pT

- Z-Higgstrahlung:
- Cuts on di-lepton separation and invariant mass extract signal
- Combined model independent Higgs mass determination.

Eboli and Zeppenfeld

Davoudiasl, Han, Logan

- Numerically solved Boltzman equation (McDonald et al., Gondolo et al., Kolb and Turner)

- WMAP constrains the relic density to be between 0.099 < Sh2 < 0.123

- Direct detection of the dark matter candidate by elastic scattering off a nucleus.

- OPAL: Higgs w/SM couplings mh>82 GeV
- ATLAS reach on BF(Hinv.) to ~ 20%

Higgs can be discoverable through visible or invisible modes with early LHC data.

SM + 1 scalar singlet:

Case 1: Singlet Mixes with SM Higgs

-Traditional discovery modes weakened if

H2 H1 H1 is open

-Higgs discovery may be possible with new decay modes through new modes.

Case 2: Reflection Symmetry (Stable S)

-DM Candidate

-Visible discovery modes weakened from HSS.

-Higgs may be discoverable through invisible modes.
