Description:
The GeorgiMachacek model adds scalar triplets to the Standard Model Higgs
sector in such a way as to preserve custodial SU(2) symmetry in the scalar
potential. This allows the triplets to have a nonnegligible vacuum
expectation value while satisfying constraints from the rho parameter.
Depending on the parameters, the 125 GeV neutral Higgs particle can have
couplings to WW and ZZ larger than in the Standard Model due to mixing
with the triplets. The model also contains singly and doublycharged
Higgs particles that couple to vector boson pairs at tree level (WZ and
likesign WW, respectively).
GMCALC is a FORTRAN program that, given a set of input
parameters, calculates the particle spectrum and treelevel couplings,
checks theoretical and indirect constraints on the model, and computes
the branching ratios and total widths of the scalars. It also generates
a param_card.dat file for MadGraph5 (LO, NLO, and an EFT version)
to be used with the corresponding
FeynRules
model implementations.
The full functionality of GMCALC v1.3.0 and higher requires an
installation of the
LoopTools package.
There is an option to compile GMCALC v1.3.0 and higher without
LoopTools; if this is done then the loopinduced decay widths of H_5^0
to Z gamma and H_3^+, H_5^+ to W^+ gamma will be set to zero.
