Favor Conserving 2HDM: Electron and Muon g-2 and W boson mass

Dr. Fernando Cornet

Recent determinations of the electron and muon anomalous magnetic moments point towards a potential discrepancy with respect to the SM prediction. Here we present a flavor conserving Two Higgs Doublet Model that, having non-universal leptonic couplings, is capable of explaining all the experimental scenarios available at the moment. The model is a type I or type X two Higgs doublets model with a modified lepton sector. The generalized lepton sector is also flavor conserving but with the new Yukawa couplings completely decoupled from lepton mass proportionality. We will also show how the CDF measurement of the W boson mass affects our results. Thorough parameter space analyses are performed to constrain all the model parameters in the different scenarios, either including or not including the recent CDF measurement of the W boson mass.
