ABSTRACT We derive a general expression for Delta rho (or, equivalently, for the oblique parameter T) in the SU(2) x U(1) electroweak model with an arbitrary number of scalar SU(2) doublets, with hypercharge +-1/2, and an arbitrary number of scalar SU(2) singlets. The experimental bound on Delta rho constitutes a strong constraint on the masses and mixings of the scalar particles in that model.

    ABSTRACT: We study the conditions required to make the 2HDM scalar potential stable up to the Planck scale. The lightest CP-even scalar is assumed to have been found at the LHC and the alignment limit is imposed in view of the LHC Higgs data. We find that ensuring stability up to scales 10 10 GeV necessitates the introduction of a soft breaking parameter in the theory. Even then, some interesting correlations between the nonstandard masses and the soft breaking parameter need to be satisfied. Consequently, a 2HDM becomes completely determined by only two nonstandard parameters, namely, tan β and a mass parameter, m0, with tan β 3. These observations make a 2HDM, in the stable alignment limit, more predictive than ever.

    ABSTRACT: We study the conditions required to make the 2HDM scalar potential stable up to the Planck scale. The lightest CP-even scalar is assumed to have been found at the LHC and the {\em alignment limit} is imposed in view of the LHC Higgs data. We find that ensuring stability up to scales $\gtrsim 10^{10}$~GeV necessitates the introduction of a soft breaking parameter in the theory. Even then, some interesting correlations between the nonstandard masses and the soft breaking parameter need to be satisfied. Consequently, a 2HDM becomes completely determined by only two nonstandard parameters, namely, $\tb$ and a mass parameter, $m_0$, with $\tb \gtrsim 3$. These observations make a 2HDM, in the {\em stable alignment limit}, more predictive than ever.

    ABSTRACT: We study the production of Higgs boson pairs via gluon fusion at the LHC in the Two-Higgs-Doublet Model. We present predictions at NLO accuracy in QCD, matched to parton showers through the MC@NLO method. A dedicated reweighting technique is used to improve the NLO calculation upon the infinite top-mass limit. We perform our calculation within the MadGraph5_aMC@NLO framework, along with the 2HDM implementation based on the NLOCT package. The inclusion of the NLO corrections leads to large K-factors and significantly reduced theoretical uncertainties. We examine the seven 2HDM Higgs pair combinations using a number of representative 2HDM scenarios. We show how the model-specific features modify the Higgs pair total rates and distribution shapes, leading to trademark signatures of an extended Higgs sector.
