We investigate the light charged Higgs boson production via $pp \rightarrow H^\pm h$ at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) in the Two-Higgs Doublet Model (2HDM) type-I. By focusing on a scenario where $H$ is the observed Higgs boson of mass 125 GeV, we study the aforementioned Higgs boson production channel and explore its bosonic decay $H^\pm \righta...

Motivated by the new CDF measurement of the $W$ boson mass reported recently which clearly illustrates a large deviation compared to the Standard Model (SM) prediction. In the present paper, we study the Two-Higgs Doublet Model (2HDM) contributions to $M_W$ and its phenomenological implications in the case where the heavy CP-even $H$ is identified...

We compute the full one-loop radiative corrections for charged Higgs pair production $e^{+}e^{-}\to H^{+}H^{-}$ in the Inert Higgs Doublet Model. The on-shell renormalization scheme have been used. We include the full electroweak contributions as well as the QED corrections (soft and hard). We use FeynArts/FormCalc/LoopTools to compute the one-loop...

We present a comprehensive study on Higgs pair production in various archetypical extended Higgs sectors such as the real and the complex 2-Higgs-Doublet Model, the 2-Higgs-Doublet Model augmented by a real singlet field and the Next-to-Minimal Supersymmetric extension of the Standard Model. Taking into account all relevant theoretical and experime...

The same-sign charged Higgs pair production via vector-boson scattering is a useful probe of the mass spectrum among the heavier scalar, pseudoscalar, and charged Higgs bosons in two-Higgs-doublet models. It has been shown that the production cross section scales as the square of the mass difference Δm=(mH0−mA0) in the alignment limit (cos(β−α)=0)....

We study the production of a heavy charged Higgs boson at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) in [Formula: see text] within a 2-Higgs Doublet Model (2HDM). The chiral structure of the [Formula: see text] coupling can trigger a particular spin state of the top quark produced in the decay of a charged Higgs boson and, therefore, is sensitive to the under...

We perform a comprehensive global analysis in the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (MSSM) as well as in the 2-Higgs Doublet Model (2HDM) of the production and decay mechanisms of charged Higgs bosons (H±) at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC).

We study the phenomenology of the scotogenic model in the case of a Majorana dark matter (DM) candidate. This scenario gives important consequences since the parameter space of the model is almost unconstrained compared to the inert Higgs doublet model (or the scotogenic model with scalar DM) and hence offers new opportunities for discovery at futu...

We study the phenomenology of the two Higgs doublet model with a real singlet scalar S (N2HDM). The model predicts three CP-even Higgses \(h_{1,2,3}\), one CP-odd \(A^0\) and a pair of charged Higgs. We discuss the consistency of the N2HDM with theoretical as well as with all available experimental data. In contrast with previous studies, we focus...

We consider the production of a single Standard Model (SM) Higgs boson (h0) in association with a photon at the future Linear collider (LC) in the context of a type-II seesaw model. The type-II seesaw model extends the SM particle content by adding one triple Higgs where its Higgs coupling is a key parameter of the scalar potential triggering the e...

Same-sign charged Higgs pair production via vector-boson scattering is a useful probe of the mass spectrum among the heavier scalar, pseudoscalar, and charged Higgs bosons in two-Higgs-doublet models.

In this paper, we address the observability of four-jet signatures from light neutral and charged Higgs bosons at LEP2 energies in the framework of 2-Higgs Doublet Models (2HDMs). The main signal production channels are via $e^+ e^- \to Ah$ and $H^+ H^-$ with subsequent quark decays of such final states into four-jets. Specifically, Type-I and -III...

We make a full one-loop calculation of the single and pair Higgs productions at future linear e + e − collider in the Inert Higgs Doublet Model (IHDM). In order to benefit from the high precision measurements, we also need a high precision predictions from the theory, which means that there is a need to go beyond the leading order calculations for...

We consider the production of a single Standard Model (SM) Higgs boson ($h^0$) in association with a photon at the future Linear collider (LC) in the context of a type-II seesaw model.

We study the most popular nonminimal Higgs extension of the Standard Model, namely the two-Higgs-doublet model, extended by a complex triplet scalar (2HDMcT). Such model with a very small vacuum expectation value, provides a solution to the massive neutrinos through the so-called type-II seesaw mechanism. We show that the 2HDMcT enlarged parameter...

We revisit a Dark Matter model with an extension of the Standard Model with two real singlets χ and η obeying a Z2⊗Z2′ symmetry, where Z2′ is broken spontaneously. While χ serves as a stable Dark Matter candidate providing the relic density, the real η field plays the role of a light mediator. We study the viability of this model with respect to Da...

Recent experimental results provided by the CMS and LHCb, Belle and BaBar collaborations are showing a tension with the SM predictions in $R_{K^{(*)}}$, which might call for an explanation from new physics. In this work, we examine this tension in the type-III two-Higgs doublet models. We focus on the contributions of charged Higgs boson to the obs...
