Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We studied single Higgs boson production in 77 collisions proceeding via the hadronic content of the photon. For SM Higgs masses of current theoretical interest, the resolved photon contributions are non-negligible in precision cross section measurements. We found that production of the heavier Higgs bosons H0 and A0 of the MSSM can probe regions of the SUSY parameter space that will complement other measurements. Finally, we showed that associated tH± production in γγ collisions can be used to make an accurate determination of tan β for low and high tan β by precision measurements of the γγ → H ± + X cross section.
