I will discuss exclusive Higgs light (or b) jet production at the LHC, pp -> h j(jb), focusing on new physics (NP) in the light-quarks Yukawa sector and in the Higgs-gluon (hgg) and quark-gluon (qqg) interactions, which are parameterized either as scaled SM couplings (the kappa-framework) and/or through higher dimensional effective operators (the SMEFT framework).

The Higgs pT distribution in pp -> h j(jb) is studied using non-differential observables that are sensitive to the different types of NP. In particular, we find that the exclusive h j(jb) production at the 13 TeV LHC is sensitive to the various NP scenarios, with typical scales ranging from a few to O(10) TeV, depending on the flavor, chirality and Lorentz structure of the underlying physics.
