1. Introduction
The LHC discovery of a 126 GeV Higgs boson [1, 2] confirms the great success of the SM
in describing electroweak phenomena, but with SM there are still many unanswered issues [3].
One is the question of hierarchy that arises from the quadratic divergence of the Higgs mass,
suggesting the presence of some underlying physics in the gauge symmetry breaking mechanism
that is so far unknown. Another issue is that the SM does not specify the Yukawa structures,
has no justification for the number of generations, and it does not offer an explanation for the
large hierarchy of the fermion masses, which exceed a range of five orders of magnitude in the
quark sector and a much wider range when neutrinos are included. The gauge hierarchy problem
is one of the driving theoretical reasons for the invention and necessity of new physics at the
electroweak scale. Its strength can be quantified as a technical naturalness problem induced by
the instability of the electroweak scale under radiative corrections, which gains severity given the
hierarchy of 16 orders of magnitude between the electroweak and the Planck scale MP L. Models
with compact extra dimensions explain this hierarchy in terms of geometry and at the same time,
the hierarchical structures observed in the fermionic masses and in the mixing angles via so-called
geometrical sequestering [4]. This can be achieved naturally within the framework of a warped
extra dimension, first proposed by Randall and Sundrum (RS) [5]. There one studies the SM on a
background consisting of Minkowski space, embedded in a slice of five-dimensional anti de-Sitter
geometry (AdS5) with curvature k. The fifth dimension is an S1/Z2 orbifold of size r and has two
branes, the UV and the IR brane, located at orbifold fixed points.

Abstract. The production of the Higgs boson in the γµ− collision process with the
polarization of the muon beam is studied indetail. The value of differential cross-section
is greatest when the angle between the direction of the beam Higgs boson and beam µ−
approximately 180 degrees. For the total cross-section is greatest in high energy region.
Based on this results, we hope that the reaction can give observable cross-section in Larger
Hadron Collider (LHC) at the high degree of polarization.
Keywords: Higgs boson, RS, cross-section.

In the original RS model, there are two new particles beyond the Standard Model. One is
a spin-2 graviton (and its Kaluza-Klein excitations) and the other is a scalar-field radion φ which
is a metric fluctuation along the extra dimension. The radion acquires the mass of the order of the
electroweak scale due to the Goldberger-Wise mechanism and it could be a lightest extra particle
in the RS model [6, 7]. The radion, therefore, is expected to be the first signature of warped extra
dimension models in direct search experiments such as the LHC. Phenomenology of the radion
can be characterized by two parameters, radion mass mφ and scale parameter Λφ. The search
experiments of the Higgs boson at the LHC give stringent constraints on the parameters of the
radion [8]. Furthermore, there could be a mixing between the radion and the SM Higgs boson
through the scalar-curvature mixing term in the four dimensional effective action [9, 10]. The
characteristic features of the radion have been studied, including the phenomenological aspects of
the radion in various colliders [11-17 ]. In this paper, we study the production of the Higgs boson
at a photon collider which has been proposed as the γµ− collider.

2.1. A review of RS model
The experiments at the LHC have already used the dijet invariant mass to constrain the mass
of these new resonances [18, 19]. The RS model is one of a number of new physics models which
can solve the large hierarchy problem of the weak and the Plank scale.
The RSmodel is based on a 5D space-time with the fifth dimension compacted on an S1/Z2
orbifold which has two fixed points, φ = 0 and φ = π. They correspond to the high energy brane
and the brane we live on, respectively. Graviton is the only particle that can propagate through the
bulk between these two branes. The 5-dimensional warped matric is given by [20]:

with ηµν = diag(1,−1,−1,−1) and where φ is the five dimensional coordinate, k is a scale of
order of the Plank scale, r is compactification radius of the extra dimensional circle and hµν is the
graviton metric. Solving the 5-dimensional Einstein equation and using Eq. (2.1), we can get the
relation between the 4-dimensional reduced Plank scale M¯PL and the 5-dimensional Plank scale

The physical mass m of a field in a 4-dimension scale is related to the fundamental mass
parameter m0 as follows:
m = e−krπm0. (2.3)
Thus the hierarchy problem can be solved by assuming kr ≈ 12 [20].

2.2. The matrix element of Higgs boson production in γµ− collisions
In this paper we are interested in the production of the Higgs boson in high energy γµ−
colliders when the µ− beams are polarized,
µ−(p1) + γ(p2)→ µ−(k1) + h(k2). (2.7)
Here pi, ki stand for the momentum of the particle, respectively. There are three Feynman
diagrams contributing to reaction (2.7) and representing the s, u, t - channel exchange depicted in

Using these matrix elements, we evaluate the differential and total cross-section for Higgs
boson production in the γµ− collider in the next section.

Higgs boson production in γµ− collision in the randall-sundrum model
2.3. Numerical results
In this section, we present the numerical results for a differential and total cross-section for
Higgs boson production in the γµ− collider when the µ− beams are polarized. From the expression
of the cross-section: dσd(cos θ) =

make the identification and evaluate the results obtained from the dependence of the differential
cross-section by cos θ , and the total cross-section fully follows

s and polarization factors of the
µ− beams (P1, P2).We obtain some estimates for the cross-section as follows:

as a function of cosθ for the s - channel
Figure 3. Differential cross-section of the process γµ− → hµ−
as a function of cos θ for the u - channel
We show in Figure 2, Figure 3, Figure 4 and Figure 5 the behavior of dσ/d cos θ at fixed
collision energy
√
s = 3000GeV (this energy can be done in LHC, in future can up to 14TeV). We
have chosen a relatively low Higgs boson mass, mh = 126GeV , and the polarization coefficients
are P1 = P2 = 0, −1, P1 = −1, P2 = 1, respectively. We see that the differential cross-section
141

of the t-channel is largest when P1 = P2 = −1 and when cos θ approaches -1. For the case
P1 = −1, P2 = 1, we only obtain the differential cross-section by s, u-channels, and for t-channel
it is zero. In the other cases, the differential cross-sections were very small.

In Figures 6- 9, we plot total cross-section as a function of collision energy

s for s, u
and t - channels. The polarization coefficients are P1 = P2 = 0, −1, P1 = −1, P2 = 1 and the
collision energy is in the region 500GeV ≤ √s ≤ 3000GeV . The figure shows that the total cross
section has a maximum value at P1 = P2 = −1 for the t - channel. For the s and u - channels, the
total cross-section obtained in the low energy region is greater than in the higher energy region,
but this is not true for the t-channel.

3. Conclusion
In this paper, we have calculated production of the Higgs boson in the γµ− collider when
the µ− beams are polarized, with the results showing that contributions from the t-channel are
greatest when the initial and final µ− beams are completely polarized and identical, left or right.
The value of the differential cross-section is greatest when the angle between the direction of the
beam Higgs boson and µ− beam approximately 180 degrees. The total cross-section is greatest in
the high energy region so the ability to capture the Higgs boson is better in the high energy region
than in the low energy region. For this reason, we hope that the reaction can give an observable
cross-section in LHC at a high degree of polarization µ− beams.
