PHZ 6358: Standard Model I Fall Term 2011 Homework Set 3 Due Wednesday, September 21, 2011 Reading: CalcHEP manual; S. Dawson, “The SM intermediate Higgs boson”, hep-ph/9703387. Problem 1. Input parameters in CalcHEP. Let us critically review the values of the default input parameters in CalcHEP. Browse through the Particles and Parameters lists. Are there any inputs whose values need to be updated? If so, make a list of those, with their correct values. Notice that the default for the Higgs mass is m h = 120 GeV. What is the value of the Higgs width? Problem 2. Higgs interactions in CalcHEP. Using your favourite source for the SM Feynman rules (e.g. textbook, lecture notes from the Field Theory class, etc.) check that the Higgs interactions in Table Lagrangian are programmed correctly. Check for both their structure and the prefactor. Problem 3. Higgs boson branching fractions. For the range of Higgs masses 100 < m h < 400 GeV, plot: (a) the Higgs boson partial widths to b ¯ b, τ + τ - , c ¯ c, s ¯ s, μ + μ - , W + W - , ZZ and t ¯ t ;

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
