Description
After reviewing the present status of Higgs boson searches at the LHC, I will focus on Higgs boson scenarios where the Higgs couplings to fermions vanish at tree level. One-loop corrections will in general affect the tree-level predictions by generating radiative Yukawa couplings. I will discuss the impact of the latter in a general theoretical framework, giving an improved description of a large class of fermiophobic Higgs-boson scenarios. I will eventually consider the theoretical and phenomenological implications of a fermiophobic 125-GeV Higgs boson at the LHC and at a future linear e+e- collider.
