Pair production of charged Higgs particles through two-photon process inpp collisions

Zeitschrift für Physik C 05/1990; 46(2):267-272. DOI: 10.1007/BF01556003


In order to obtain model-independent estimates for the production of charged Higgs particles atpp colliders, in particular at the SSC, we investigate their pair production through electromagnetic processes. It turns out that the dominant contribution comes from photon-photon annihilation. For a Higgs mass of a few hundred GeV the two-photon process is thus an appropriate candidate to look for charged Higgs particles.

    ABSTRACT: We show that in any theory with more than one Higgs multiplet, Higgs bosons may be copiously produced in electron-positron collisions at energies around the Z pole. The production of neutral Higgs bosons substantially exceeds that of charged Higgs bosons.

    ABSTRACT: It is argued that a past Gargamelle beam dump experiment probably excludes the axion's existence. Present beam dump experiments can probably help settle the matter conclusively. Also, it seems that CP violation in weak interaction models can be calculationally separated from that due to the strong interaction θ-vacuum. Some models have very little renormalization of θ.

    ABSTRACT: We discuss the pair production of charged Higgs bosons in high-energy hadron collisions, concentrating on supersymmetric models with two Higgs doublets. We show that gluon fusion via quark and scalar-quark loops dominates the usual electroweak quark-antiquark annihilation process if there exist sufficiently heavy quarks or scalar quarks.
