Constraints on New Scalars from the LHC 125 GeV Higgs SignalJun 22 2012Aug 07 2012We study the implications the recent results from the LHC Higgs searches have on scalar new physics. We study the impact on both the Higgs production and decay from scalars with and without colour, and in cases where decoupling do and do not happen. We ... More
Phenomenology from a U(1) gauged hidden sectorJun 15 2007We consider the phenomenological consequences of a hidden Higgs sector extending the Standard Model (SM), in which the matter content are uncharged under the SM gauge groups. We consider a simple case where the hidden sector is gauged under a U(1) with ... More
