In the SM these couplings are present through a heavy (top) quark loop. For a not too heavy Higgs (m,,h,,<2 m,,t,,), it is a good approximation to take the mass of the heavy quark in the loop to infinity (For this approximation to hold, not only should the Higgs mass be smaller than twice the top mass, also all other kinematic variables, such as the transverse momentum of the Higgs boson, should be smaller than 2m,,t,,.)

Since !MadGraph can work only with three and fourpoint vertices, the fourgluon interactions in the 21 {{{ 19 22 heft 20 }}} model are obtained by rewriting the QCD fourgluon interaction in terms of threepoint vertices with an extra nonpropagating internal tensor particle, T. This trick can be easily understood by noting that the usual (textbook) form of the fourgluon interaction is the sum of three terms, whose color and Lorentz structure correspond to 2 → 2 diagrams where a color octet tensor is exchanged in the s, t, u channels. With the introduction of this extra particle, the fourgluonHiggs vertices can be reduced to diagrams with at most fourpoint vertices.
