Title: Higgs signals in a Minimal Flavor Violating 2HDM
Abstract: After the discovery of a Higgs-like particle at the LHC, the next goal for particle physics is to understand its fundamental properties and the implications for new physics theories. In this talk, I present the implications of the present LHC Higgs data for a particular Two Higgs Doublet Model (2HDM) based on the Minimal Flavor Violating (MFV) idea. I will highlight the correlations between the different Higgs rates and the predictions of the model for the phenomenology of the heavy Higgs bosons, to distinguish the framework from 2HDMs of Type II. Particular focus will be dedicated to the tautau and the gamma gamma mode that are showing interesting hints for deviations from the Standard Model predictions. The possible impact of a light charged Higgs on the Higgs to diphoton rate is also discussed.
