Physics at the [Formula: see text] linear collider.
Bottom Line:
A comprehensive review of physics at an [Formula: see text] linear collider in the energy range of [Formula: see text] GeV-3 TeV is presented in view of recent and expected LHC results, experiments from low-energy as well as astroparticle physics.The report focusses in particular on Higgs-boson, top-quark and electroweak precision physics, but also discusses several models of beyond the standard model physics such as supersymmetry, little Higgs models and extra gauge bosons.The connection to cosmology has been analysed as well.

Mentions: The double Higgs-strahlung process dominates at low energies, and in the MCHM4 and MCHM5 it is always smaller than in the SM, which is due to the suppressed Higgs-gauge couplings. On the other hand, the WW fusion process, which becomes important for higher c.m. energies, is enhanced compared to the SM for non-vanishing values of [442, 443]. This are due to interference effects related to the anomalous Higgs couplings. Furthermore, the amplitude grows like the c.m. energy squared contrary to the SM where it remains constant. The sensitivity of double Higgs-strahlung and gauge boson fusion processes to the tri-linear Higgs self-coupling of the corresponding model can be studied by varying the Higgs tri-linear coupling in terms of the respective self-interaction of the model in consideration, hence . This gives an estimate of how accurately the Higgs pair production process has to be measured in order to extract within in the investigated model with a certain precision. Note, however, that this does not represent a test of models beyond the actually investigated theory. Figure 82 shows for the SM and for the MCHM5 with three representative values () the normalised double Higgs production cross sections for Higgs-strahlung and gauge boson fusion, respectively, at two c.m. energies, GeV and 1 TeV, as a function of the modification factor . The cross sections are normalised with respect to the double Higgs production cross sections at of the respective model. As can be inferred from the figure, both Higgs-strahlung and double Higgs production are more sensitive to at lower c.m. energies. This is due to the suppression of the propagator in the diagrams which contain the tri-linear Higgs self-coupling with higher energies. In addition in WW fusion the t- and u-channel diagrams, insensitive to this coupling, become more important with rising energy. A high-energy collider can exploit the WW fusion process to study the deviations in the coupling between two Higgs bosons and two gauge bosons by looking at the large invariant mass distribution [441]. The sensivity obtained on via this process is almost an order of magnitude better than the one obtained from the study of double Higgs-strahlung [441]. |
