Estimates of vertex tagging efficiencies at a muon collider Higgs factory

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Measurement of the branching ratios (BR) of the Higgs boson would be an important goal of a future s-channel muon collider Higgs factory. this paper derives quick, heuristic estimates of the expected tagging efficiencies and purities for the 3 main decay modes of a light, Standard Model Higgs: H {yields} b{anti b}, H {yields} {tau}{anti {tau}} and H {yields} c{anti c}. These estimates should be useful as input to theoretical assessments of the physics capabilities of Higgs factory muon colliders. The vertex tagging methods are similar for b{anti b}-bar events and c{anti c}-bar events and these two modes are treated ... continued below

Description

Measurement of the branching ratios (BR) of the Higgs boson would be an important goal of a future s-channel muon collider Higgs factory. this paper derives quick, heuristic estimates of the expected tagging efficiencies and purities for the 3 main decay modes of a light, Standard Model Higgs: H {yields} b{anti b}, H {yields} {tau}{anti {tau}} and H {yields} c{anti c}. These estimates should be useful as input to theoretical assessments of the physics capabilities of Higgs factory muon colliders. The vertex tagging methods are similar for b{anti b}-bar events and c{anti c}-bar events and these two modes are treated together in the next section. The {tau}{bar {tau}} mode is then discussed in a separate section, before ending with a short conclusion section.
