Higgs Production

A fair fraction of all the processes in PYTHIA deal with Higgs production in one form or another. This multiplication is caused by the need to consider production by several different mechanisms, depending on Higgs mass and machine type. Further, the program contains a full two-Higgs-multiplet scenario, as predicted for example in the Minimal Supersymmetric extension of the Standard Model (MSSM). Therefore the continued discussion is, somewhat arbitrarily, subdivided into a few different scenarios. Doubly-charged Higgs particles appear in left-right symmetric models, and are covered in section [*].
