SM input parameters

New (according to LHCHXSWG-INT-2015-006) , (previous values)

m_charm(3 GeV) = 0.986 0.026 GeV, m_charm^OS = 1.51 0.13 GeV (m_charm = 1.4 GeV)

m_bottom(m_bottom) = 4.18 0.03 GeV, m_bottom^OS = 4.92 0.13 GeV (m_bottom = 4.75 GeV)

m_top^OS = 173.3 0.8 GeV (current world average). However, several ATLAS and CMS analyses still based on m_top^old =172.5 GeV. Recommendation: Use 173.3 GeV only in cases where no significant inconsistencies with bkg simulations etc. are expected, stick to m_top^old =172.5 GeV otherwise. (m_top = 172.5 GeV)

G_F = 1.1663787(6) 10-5 GeV -2 (G_F = 1.16637 10-5 GeV -2)

MZ = 91.1876 0.0021 GeV (MZ = 91.1876 GeV)

Added: Gamma_Z = 2.49436 GeV

MW = 80.385 0.015 GeV (MW = 80.398 GeV)

Added: Gamma_W = 2.08718 GeV

mb(mb) = 4.18 0.03 GeV (mb(mb) = 4.16 GeV)

alpha_s(MZ) = 0.119 For the default value of alpha_s(MZ) and the estimates of the uncertainties follow the latest PDF4LHC recommendation

alpha_em(MZ)^-1 = 127.92 (MSbar), 128.94 (OS)

If alpha_em(MZ), GF, MZ are inputs, then MW is output. (SLHA convention)

If GF, MZ, MW are inputs alpha_em(MZ) is not needed.

Added: lepton masses (from the PDG):

m_e = 0.510998928 0.000000011 MeV

m_mu = 105.6583715 0.0000035 MeV

m_tau = 1776.82 0.16 MeV

H3->H2+H1 benchmarks

There has been efforts to examine the potential for decays of the style H3 -> H2 + H1, i.e. heavy Higgs decaying to two Higgs bosons, H2 and H1, where m(H2) different from m(H1) by Ulrich Ellwanger. The study is based on the setup that had been used at arXiv:1707.08522. Benchmark lines are examined for the process gg->H3 -> Hs + H125, where H125 is the SM-like Higgs observed at the LHC and Hs the singlet Higgs boson. In this demonstration, m(H3) = 500 GeV and the mass of m(Hs) is varying till up to 300 GeV. The coloured regions correspond to available NMSSM parameter space.
