Description of the Model
The
breaking induced by the expectation value of the
scalar field Phi generates coloroctet and colorsinglet scalars. The most general renormalizable potential for Phi is:
where
and where, without loss of generality, one can choose mu > 0. Assuming
Phi acquires a (positive) diagonal expectation value:
The Phi expansion around the vacuum gives:
where
are singlets under SU(3)_C Additionally,
are the NambuGoldstone bosons associated with the colorsymmetry breaking, and
are color octets.
GH can be produced in pairs through its interactions with gluons:
or it can be produced singly via gluongluon fusion. This occurs at oneloop order through the cubic interaction
which arises from the
term in the potential; where
is the SU(3) totally symmetric tensor. The single production of GH can be described by the effective coupling
with
Note that single production is suppressed by a factor
which is an accidental suppression factor coming from the loop. Above the threshold for decays into a single top quark, GH has two main decay modes: the decay into gluons, which occurs at looplevel similar to single coloron production, and the flavorviolating decay into tc. The corresponding rates are:
We set u=mu (the stability of the potential forbids mu>u); and consider for simplicity the set of
values that give a 50% GH decay into tc and 50% into gg. GH is a very narrow resonance, with a width of the order of 10^{4 GeV. }

Generation specifics
In 1409.7607v2, the samples were generated with the mass as the scale, dsqrt_q2fact1, and dsqrt_q2fact2 in the run_card. These samples were also generated without the preincluded MadGraph cuts as demonstrated in the run_card.dat for 500 GeV mass included above. The specific generations run were
p p > GH, GH > b c~ l+ vl @1 GHT=1 QED=2 p p > GH, GH > b~ c l vl~ @2 GHT=1 QED=2
Specific masses can be generated using the appropriate model file from the Octettcgg zip file.
