generating hh with different model

Asked by Brian Wang on 2018-10-10

Dear all,
        I continue my last question. In the last question, I learned that "p p > h h [QCD]" is a LO-process.

        Now,I wander why we can make " generate p p > h h " run,when we import "model HeavyHisggsTHDM" or "heft".

       What makes me confused is that ,if "p p > h h [QCD]" is LO, " generate p p > h h " can also work under the model above ,evenif it is without "[QCD]". I mean ,under these model , "p p > h h " is also a LO ? And ,Is there a default model corresponding to " p p > h h [QCD]"?

I can not comment for HeavyHisggsTHDM since this is not a default model. (And I do not know that one).

For the heft, the model defines a coupling for "h g g" vertex.
This vertex correspond to the full loop contracted to a single point in the infinite top mass limit.

Note that such limit is valid for single higgs production (and for higgs plus jet production if the jet(s) have a quite low transverse energy) but this is not valid for di-higgs production.

Now I know that some people have written the "g g h" vertex with the full top mass loop dependencies.
But I do not know if such model also include the correct "g g h h" vertex which simulates the box contribution.

Now some BSM model also predicts "g g h" vertex at tree-level (some EFT for example) so you have to read the paper associate to the model to know what each model is doing.

Note also that the computation of the two-loop computation are now possible (not in our framework) see: arXiv:1608.04798

Hi Olivier´╝î
    Thanks for your detailed reply ! So patient you are ! I will have a look at these two papers.

Best Regards,
