Title Heavy charged Higgs signals at the LHC
Abstract We discuss the viability of gb -> tH -> ttb charged-Higgs signals at the proposed LHC pp supercollider, in the decay channel tt-> (bqq)(blv). Here one top quark decays hadronically and one semileptonically, with all three ~quarks giving flavor-tagged jets. The principal backgrounds come from ttg, ttq, ttc and ttb continuum production, with possible mis-tagging of g, q and c. We conclude that significant signals can be separated from these backgrounds, for limited but interesting ranges of the parameters mH± and tan, beta, with the LHC energy and luminosity.
