Intense discussions with experimentalists about their wishlists are foreseen. Since I apply for session I there is no New Physics group. But I will particate from remote in the BSM discussion in session II and work on this 3) EWP constraints on composite Higgs models. Effects of composite tops on single Higgs and Higgs pair production. 4) Radion production in gluon gluon fusion. |
