Opening Comments

------------------------------------

1) Higgs BR Studies for DBD (H.Ono)

- BR paper published! EPC 73, 2343 (2013)

- vvh @ 1TeV

Included ea -> 3f, 5f, aa->4f BG

Added E_BCAL < 50 GeV to suppress these BG processes

mh=125GeV

Pol=(-0.8,+0.2)

- Results with 1ab-1

d(sigxBR)/(sigxBR)

---------------

bb: 0.39%

cc: 3.9%

gg: 2.8%

WW*:2.5%

mm: 31%

---------------

- Extrapolation to mh=125GeV

- Results with 250fb-1@250GeV and 350GeV, 500fb-1 @ 500 GeV

---------------------------

d(sigxBR)/(sigxBR)

---------------------------

bb: 1.1% 1.1% 0.62%

cc: 7.4% 7.4% 6.2%

gg: 9.1% 6.0% 4.1%

WW*: 6.4% 2.6%

tau: 4.2% - -

---------------------------

- new H->WW* analysis including Z->ll

d(sigxBR)/(sigxBR) = 6.9% for mh=120GeV

Next Step:

- mh=125GeV analyses

- H->ZZ*

- TMVA

2) ZH: H->tau tau at 250 GeV (S.Kawada)

Status:

- Previous meeting:

Z->ee: 7.4 sigmas, mm: 8.5 sigmas, qq: 25.6 sigmas

--> 28.0 sigmas => 3.6%

New updated results:

Z->ee: 8.0 sigmas, mm: 8.8 sigmas, qq: 25.7 sigmas, vv: 3.0 sigmas

--> 28.5 sigmas => 3.5%

--> extrapolation to mh=125 GeV: 4.5%

Next Step:

- 1 TeV analysis

C: mh=125GeV extrapolation is different from that by Ono-san.

Check consistency.

3) Probing wino DM at ILC (K.Ichikawa)

Setup:

MSSM

mh=125GeV

--> large sermon mass and small DM mass

--> AMSB allows such a spectrum

--> m_wino < m_bino < m_gluino --> wino DM.

mass difference ~ 165 MeV

m_wino=450GeV

Signature:

A charging pair decays through annihilation near threshold even though

there is no resonance, since chargino life time is long and their wave

functions stay overlapped each other for long enough time.

--> Excess in SM-like events.

4) Higgs inflation in a radiative see saw model (T.Nabeshima)

Setup:

Inert doublet (Z_2 odd scalar doublet) + v_R

--> inflation : inert doublet model

neutrino mass : seesaw

DM : Z_2 odd scalar

--> m_A ~ m_h

Phenomenology:

H+: difficult observe at LHC: too much W boson BG

A : difficult observe at LHC

--> testable at ILC:

SUSY like signals.

--> Masses of H+/- and A can be measured.

5) Radiative corrections to Higgs coupling in HTM (M.Kikuchi)

Motivation for Higgs sector extension

+ S: dark matter

+ Phi: MSSM, EW baryogenesis

+ Delta: neutrino mass

--> "h (125)" as a probe of new physics. --> needs predictions at the 1-loop level

--> Consider 1-loop corrections in HTM

HTM:

SM-like h plus h++/--, h+/-, A, H

--> rho != 1 at the tree level.

Case I: H++ < H+ < A, H

Case II: A,H < H+ < H++

Case III: all degenerate

Observables to calculate:

g_hXX: X= gamma, Z, W, h

(cf) expected precision at ILC: O(1)% for hZZ, hWW, 20% for hhh

Renormalization 1: rho != 1 requires one more input parameter.

4 input parameters needed for HTM: mW, mZ, alpha_em, s2w

Renormalization 2: V(Phi, Delta): 9 parameters

Results:

Expected deviations:

hZZ, hWW --> O(1)%

hhh --> O(10)%

Next Step:

- Extend the analysis to 2HDM, Model with a singlet

- Take into account LHC constraints

6) Self-coupling 1 (J.Tian)

Status:

DBD studies for ZHH at 500 GeV, vvHH at 1 TeV have just been finished.

Key differences from the LoI time:

- much better flavor tagging: LCFIVertex (LoI) --> LCFIPlus (DBD)

- isolated lepton sélection: bbbb 0.43% (LoI) --> 0.028% (DBD)

- weighting to enhance the self-coupling diagram

Comment:

SGV performs pretty good. Use it for fast simulation.

Next Step:

- Weighting including BG.

- Include two-photon BG.

- Update the analysis to mh=125GeV.

- Color singlet clustering.

- Include H->WW* (Kurata)

7) Self-coupling 2: HH->bbWW* (M.Kurata)

Status:

Signature to look for

ZbbWW* --> qqbblvqq

--> bbbbqqqq

--> bbbblvqq

--> llbblvqq

--> llbbqqqq

Combined results

--> 1 sigma significance so far.

Most significant is all hadronic channel with 4 tight b-tagged jets.

(signal is just bbhh with BG being tt, ttQQ, ttZ, tth, and ZZh)

Next Step:

- Improve analysis

- Check overlapping with HH->bbbb analysis.

8) Top pair threshold (T.Horiguchi)

Status:

MC simulations with

mt=174 GeV, 11 points with 10 fb-1 each from 340 to 350 GeV in 1 GeV step.

beam polarization: (+0.8,-0.3)

Results:

efficiency: 0.4 - 0.45, almost linear function of Ecm.

Next Step:

- Evaluate sensitivity to top Yukawa

C: Try eLpR combination.

9) SUSY extended Higgs sector and SUSY strong dynamics (T.Yamada)

Motivation:

Choose EWBG as a guiding principle for model construction.

--> strongly 1st order EW phase transition is required.

--> 2HDM can realize the condition but it cannot be a UV complete theory

since some coupling must blow up at a relative low scale.

--> SUSY gauge theory which provides a IR picture of extended Higgs sector

with large couplings.

IR picture:

MSSM Higgs doublets

+ extra HD + charged singlets + Z2-even neutral singlets + Z2-odd neutral siglets

EW phase transition:

light scalars: Phi_u, Omega^-, eta

--> Confinement scale: Lambd_H < 15TeV

Collider phenomenology:

Exotic scalaires and ferminons

h->gamma gamma: -O(10)% reduction from SM

self-coupling: +O(20)% or more enhancement from SM

10) Phenomenology of Inert Doublet Model at ILC (H.Yokoya)

Setup:

Z_2: phi_1 -> phi_1, phi_2 -> -phi_2

v_1 = v, v_2 = 0

--> 4 additional scalars: A, H, H+, H-

--> the lightest is stable (DM)

--> 40 GeV < m_H < 80 GeV

Phenomenology:

- LHC

pp -> H+H-, HA, H+/-H, H+/-A

H+/- -> W+/-H(A)

A -> ZH

possible only if m_A - m_H > 50 GeV

- ILC

e+e- -> HA, H+H-

--> relatively easy to observe.

--> mass and spin determinations are possible.

11) CP mixing of Higgs (S.Watanuki)

Measure cos(theta_Z) and extract the mixing parameter, eta.

Status:

Signal sample: eta=0 and mh=120GeV at Ecm=250 GeV with (P_e-,P_e+)=(-1,+1).

Select Zh -> mmh using ZFinder + cuts on m_Z and m_rec

--> reconstructed cos(theta_Z)

Next Step:

- BG study.

- Estimate efficiency.

- Extract eta from the cos(theta_Z) distribution.

- Extend the analysis to nonzero eta samples to test the sensitivity to eta.

12) SU(2) septet mixture (K.Tsumura)

Motivation:

rho-parameter: guiding principle

rho=1.0004 +0.0003/-0.0004 (exp)

--> rho_tree=1

--> Pell's equation in number theory. x^2 - n*y^2 = 1

with x = (2I+1), y=2Y, n=3

--> Next minimal solution: (x_2, y_2)=(7,2) --> a septet

Setup:

1 Higgs doublet + 1 Higgs septet

with U(1) breaking term to eliminate exact NG boson.

After some simplification, the model contains M_7, c_alpha, tanbeta=v2/(4v7)

Predictions:

- k_V >> 1 possible as compared to k_V^{2HDM} <= 1.

- mu_v > 1 and mu_gamma > 1 and mu_f < 1

consistent with ATLAS though not with the recent CMS results.

ILC Phenomenology:

- e+e- -> W+/-H-/+ --> v3[v7] ~ O(GeV) can be probed.

C: What about RG running?
