The Higgs boson 10 years after discovery

The journal Nature published, online on the 4th July 2022, a series of papers on what we know (and what we don't know) since the Higgs discovery ten years ago:

  • The Higgs boson turns ten by G Salam, L-T Wang and G Zanderighi (Nature 607 (2022) 41)
  • A detailed map of Higgs boson interactions by the ATLAS experiment ten years after the discovery (Nature 607 (2022) 52)
  • A portrait of the Higgs boson by the CMS experiment ten years after the discovery (Nature 607 (2022) 60)

Higgs self-coupling

A theoretical paper published in 2013, shortly after the discovery of the Higgs boson in 2012, reviewing the importance of Higgs-pair production processes for the measurement of the Higgs self-coupling at the LHC:

  • The measurement of the Higgs self-coupling at the LHC: theoretical status (JHEP04 (2013) 151)

Two theoretical papers published in 2016 and 2017, highlighting that single Higgs production processes at the LHC can also additionally be used to measure/constrain the Higgs self-coupling:

  • Probing the Higgs self coupling via single Higgs production at the LHC (JHEP12 (2016) 080)
  • Trilinear Higgs coupling determination via single-Higgs differential measurements at the LHC (EPJ C77 (2017) 887)

Some experimental papers in more recent years:

  • Combination of searches for Higgs boson pairs in pp collisions at 13 TeV with the ATLAS detector (PL B800 (2020) 135103)
  • Constraints on the Higgs boson self-coupling from single- and double-Higgs production with the ATLAS detector using pp collisions at 13 TeV (PL B843 (2023) 137745)

Searches for di-Higgs production in specific final states:

  • Search for Higgs boson pairs decaying to WW*WW*, WW*ττ, and ττττ in proton-proton collisions at 13 TeV (CMS experiment) (JHEP07 (2023) 095)
  • Search for nonresonant Higgs boson pair production in final state with two bottom quarks and two tau leptons in proton-proton collisions at 13 TeV (CMS experiment) (PL B842 (2023) 137531)
  • Search for nonresonant pair production of highly energetic Higgs bosons decaying to bottom quarks (CMS experiment) (arXiV hep-ex 2205.06667)
  • Search for Higgs Boson Pair Production in the Four b Quark Final State in Proton-Proton Collisions at 13 TeV (CMS experiment) (PRL 129 (2022) 081802)
