Probing standard-model Higgs substructures using tops and weak gauge bosons

Axel Maas, Simon Fernbach, Lukas Lechner, Simon Plätzer, Robert Schöfbeck, Pascal Törek

Manifest gauge-invariance requires that observable states in the standard-model are described by composite operators, which involve additional Higgs contributions beyond perturbation theory. This field-theoretical effect has been confirmed in lattice simulations. It should also be experimentally accessible at high enough precision. Here a few estimates for such signatures at current and future collider experiments will be discussed.
