  10. Conclusions and outlook

Notes by Aleandro Close Following up on the discussions made during the Workshop, I guess that there are (at least) four main topics that are top priority for the Higgs chapter a) revisit Higgs boson rates and Higgs boson couplings in each individual experiment. Indeed, the latest simulation/projection results from ATLAS and CMS are obsolete now, and needs to be revisited. Most likley, we should now base the studies for the Yellow Report on extrapolations/projections/simulations based on the most recent Run 2 analyses. These should also taken into account the most recent detector upgrade performances that are documented in the ATLAS, CMS and LHCb detectors (hopefully LHCb Higgs oson contributions will be made available for the Yellow Report) b) like in the previous point, but discussing double Higgs porduction studies, with extraction of limits on lambda_HHH. Hopefully some more new channels can be considered for the Yellow Report c) perform single and double Higgs combinations across channels for the same experiment, and across channels and experiments (ATLAS, CMS and LHCb). The aim here will be to produce a reference for the European Strategy where the HL-LHC expectations on single and diHiggs production are outlined. This will obblige ATLAS and CMS to check their assumptions/ expectations on the experimental systematic uncertainties that limit the precision of the single Higgs and double Higgs coupling measurements, and to make them consistent. Moreover, this will obblige ATLAS CMS and LHCb to make consistent assumptions fromt he theory point of view, in particular on theory uncertainites (cross sections, BRs, PDFs and alpha_strong, etc etc). I leave the Editors of this Chapter to implement these tasks in terms of Sections and subSections, if they share my views above illustrated. Thanks! [Aleandro]
