A general framework with two Higgs doublets and suppressed FCNC
Abstract
We investigated a general framework of the Standard Model with two Higgs doublets (2HDSM) with suppressed flavorchanging neutral currents (FCNC's). Loopinduced FCNC (and CPviolating) effects, when confronted with experimental constraints for the $K$$\bar K$, $B$$\bar B$ and $D$$\bar D$ mixing and for the $(b \to s \gamma)$ decay, provide us with constraints on the values of the dominant Yukawa couplings of the charged Higgs, i.e., the values of the couplings of $H^{\pm}$ to $t$ and $b$ quarks. Once these {\it low} energy experimental data relevant for the mixings and for the mentioned decay, as well as the theoretical uncertainties for the hadronic matrix elements, are sufficiently reduced, such analyses may be able to rule out the minimal SM and even certain special types of the 2HDSM's (e.g., the popular ``type II'', and ``type I'' 2HDSM). In such a case, a more general 2HDSM framework discussed here could still survive as a viable framework. Eventual detection of the charged Higgs in high energy experiments and the measurement of its mass would represent important information that would additonally help to rule out or to favor the various specific 2HDSM scenarios that are contained in the discussed 2HDSM framework.
