Abstract:
The effects of colour reconnection (CR) at $\mathrm{e}^+\mathrm{e}^-$ colliders are revisited, with focus on recently developed CR models. The new models are compared with the LEP2 measurements for $\mathrm{e}^+\mathrm{e}^- \to \mathrm{W}^+\mathrm{W}^- \to\mathrm{q}_1 \overline{\mathrm{q}}_2 \mathrm{q}_3 \overline{\mathrm{q}}_4$ and found to lie within their limits. Prospects for constraints from new high-luminosity $\mathrm{e}^+\mathrm{e}^-$ colliders are discussed. The novel arena of CR in Higgs decays is introduced, and illustrated by shifts in angular correlations that would be used to set limits on a potential $CP$-odd admixture of the 125 GeV Higgs state.
