Abstract

We explore the possibility of probing the trilinear Higgs self coupling indirectly, through single Higgs production and decay processes. The method relies on the effects that electroweak loops featuring an anomalous trilinear coupling would imprint on single Higgs production at the LHC. We find that the bounds on the self coupling are already competitive with those from Higgs pair production and will be further improved in the current and next LHC runs.
