Unitarity-controlled resonances after Higgs discovery

Englert, C. , Harris, P., Spannowsky, M. and Takeuchi, M. (2015) Unitarity-controlled resonances after Higgs discovery. Physical Review D, 92(1), 013003. (doi: 10.1103/PhysRevD.92.013003)




If the recently discovered Higgs boson's couplings deviate from the Standard Model expectation, we may anticipate new resonant physics in the weak boson fusion channels resulting from high scale unitarity sum rules of longitudinal gauge boson scattering. Motivated by excesses in analyses of multi-leptons+missing energy+jets final states during run 1, we perform a phenomenological investigation of these channels at the LHC bounded by current Higgs coupling constraints. Such an approach constrains the prospects to observe such new physics at the LHC as a function of very few and generic parameters and allows the investigation of the strong requirement of probability conservation in the electroweak sector to high energies.
