(Chart from the paper The Higgs boson and quark compositeness published in Moriond 2014 proceedings)


Taking into consideration the above chart for quark transitions in terms of Higgs-like bosons due to selection rules dictated by the quantum number ∑3 , the neutral Higgs-like bosons H0 (+1) and H0 (-1) can be found, for example, in the excesses, above SM values, of the decays t>u H0 (+1) and b>u H0 (-1) , which in terms of the quantum number ∑3 mean, respectively, +1 = 0 + (+1) and -1 = 0 + (-1). As for the charged Higgs-like boson H+ (+2), we should look for excesses in the decays t>b H+ (+2) and t>s H+ (+2), which mean  +1 = -1 + (+2) in terms of ∑3. And with the transition b>c H (-2) we could  also corroborate BaBar results. For more details take a look at other posts in this web page. It is important to have in mind that all Higgs decays seen up to now obey the selection rules  dictated by ∑ . Please, take a look at the post

 All Higgs decays linked to a new quantum number

Quark decays via virtual Higgs-like bosons

The figure below is part of the paper presented at Moriond 2014. See the whole paper at the link. The transition from b to c is compatible with BaBar results as shown in BaBar’s paper.





Considering that each quark is composed of two prequarks it is shown that the recently found Higgs boson belongs to a triplet of neutral bosons, and that there are two quadruplets of charged Higgs-like bosons. The quantum numbers of these bosons are calculated and shown to be associated to a new kind of hypercharge directly linked to quark compositeness. Particularly, the quantum number of the recently found Higgs boson is identi ed. A chart for quark decays via virtual Higgs-like bosons is proposed. Justi cations for quark compositeness are presented.

The Quantum Numbers of the Higgs Boson

There should be three Higgs-like bosons, a neutral boson H0 and two charged bosons, H+ and H–, arranged in a triplet and a quadruplet, respectively, as shown in the papers The Higgs-like Bosons and Quark Compositeness that clearly shows that the bosons have Spin 0 and are, thus, scalar bosons, and also that they carry  new […]
