2HDM Benchmarks

This is the working page for the discussion on CP-conserving 2HDM benchmarks. Note that the list of submitted proposals below is not necessarily (yet) complete.

BP1: Howard Haber, Oscar Stål
Phenomenological benchmarks for the CP-conserving 2HDM with softly-broken Z_2-symmetry. https://twiki.cern.ch/twiki/pub/LHCPhysics/LHCHXSWG3Benchmarks2HDM/HH_OS_2HDM_Benchmarks.pdf

We attach our 2HDM benchmarks for LHC searches, based on our recent work 1405.5537, together with some discussion on their salient features and motivation. https://twiki.cern.ch/twiki/pub/LHCPhysics/LHCHXSWG3Benchmarks2HDM/2HDM_Cosmic_Benchmarks.pdf

Here in attach a brief note explaining the benchmark scenarios we chose (.pdf and .tex), together with a file with the definition of the benchmarks in terms of 2HDM parameter. We are still working on other benchmark scenarios mentioned in a previous mail (higgs-to-2-Higgs topologies) and we will provide them shortly. https://twiki.cern.ch/twiki/pub/LHCPhysics/LHCHXSWG3Benchmarks2HDM/2HDM_WG-final.pdf

BP5: Agnieszka Ilnicka, Maria Krawczyk, Tania Robens
Please find attached a short writeup containing benchmarks for the IDM. This note should be seen as a preview of a full publication [NEW: arXiv:1508.01671] which should then be used as a reference. https://twiki.cern.ch/twiki/pub/LHCPhysics/LHCHXSWG3Benchmarks2HDM/IDM_benchmarks.pdf

BP6: David Lopez-Val
Following your call for 2HDM benchmark suggestions, I'd like to contribute with one of the scenarios we devised for our Higgs pair study [arXiv:1407.0281]. Please find attached all the details, hopefully complying with the indications given in your email. https://twiki.cern.ch/twiki/pub/LHCPhysics/LHCHXSWG3Benchmarks2HDM/fermiophobic.pdf
