A new tool for Higgs physics beyond the standard model

Gr@v developer M. Sampaio and collaborators, have released their first version of ScannerS, a new C++ tool to scan the parameter space of arbitrary scalar extensions of the Standard Model of particle physics (see ScannerS webpage).

The tool under development, aims to provide an easy implementation of theoretical Higgs sector extensions as to exclude, or help identify, new scalar particles beyond the recently found Higgs boson. The first implementation contains core routines to generate stable vacua, identifying the spectrum (dark matter or new mixed scalars) and several theoretical and experimental bounds. For more information see the development webpage and their first study with this tool.
