In the standard Higgs model of electroweak symmetry breaking, the Higgs boson is associated with both vector-boson and fermion mass generation. In contrast, we discuss a two-Higgs-doublet model in which these masses are associated with two different scalar bosons. We show that the Higgs boson associated with vector-boson mass generation produces a characteristic peak-dip structure in the cross section for tt→ZZ via a final-state interaction.
