Electroweak Corrections to Higgs Production and decays

Giuseppe Degrassi

ILC Physics in Florence

Florence, September 12-14, 2007

My PERSONAL opinion on ILC

If LHC does not discover anything or discovers only the Higgs (of any mass) ILC has a very little chance to be built

The best things non ILC people can do for ILC

To be prepared for ANY kind of new physics LHC

could discover

Warning

THIS IS NOT A TALK ON ILC PHYSICS

What kind of new physics?

2007

2002

- A Higgs boson heavier than 220 GeV requires
- NP of non decoupling type
- A Higgs boson ligther than 220 GeV may be
- accompanied by NP of decoupling type

Two radiative parameters:

NP of non decoupling type

Extra Z

A heavy Higgs

needs:

Isosplitted particles

More difficult

(light sleptons)

does not exist in BFG

Background Field Method

- Technique for quantizing gauge field theories without
- losing explicit gauge invariance. Fields are splitted
- in classical (background) and quantum components.
- Green functions of classical fields satisfy simple
- QED-like W.I.
- Larger number of Feynman rules. Implemented in
- FeynArts
- Denner, Dittmaier, Weiglein (95), T. Hahn (01)
- In the Feynman BFG the vertex is absent
- Reduction in the number of diagrams
- 1l: 28 -> 12; 2l: 4200 -> 1700
- finite

Two-loop contributions:

two mass scales

diagrams

one mass scale

diagrams

We look for a result valid at least in the intermediate

Higgs mass regime

Structure of the diagram cuts

- Helicity structure does not allow
- a cut at
- First cut is at when
- q is massless (in ) .
- Next cut at
- (in )

To cover the intermediated higgs mass region

must be computed exactly

can be computed via a Taylor expansion

Enhancement of the cross section of about 6-8% in

the intermediate higgs mass range.

Colored scalar contribution to

- are possible.

- Scalar sector of the SM augmented with a (8,2)1/2
- scalar multiplet.
- (1,2)1/2, (8,2)1/2 are the only representations which have
- couplings to quarks with natural flavor conservation

Corrections to

- Colored scalars can change up to 25% the SM result
- QCD corrections to the scalar contribution are about
- 10%

Conclusions

- Theoretical predictions for the Higgs boson at
- LHC are in good shape.
- QCD corrections are known at the NNLO level.
- The theoretical error is at the level of 10%.
- EW corrections start to be important. We have it for:

Bredenstein, Denner, Dittmaier, Weber (06)

Ciccolini, Denner, Dittmaier (07)

- are affected by NP. We must be
- prepared for any kind of NP that can modify the
- gluon-fusion Higgs production cross section or
- the decays in two photons.
