Abstract

We consider a two-Higgs doublet model extended with a broken Abelian gauge symmetry under which all Standard Model (SM) quarks, fourth generation fermions and a new SM-singlet scalar boson are charged. Such a setup is shown to be able to accommodate the muon anomalous magnetic dipole moment while being consistent with existing constraints of flavor-violating decays of charged leptons and Z boson. The new scalar boson offers a suitable dark matter candidate that interacts with the SM particles via the Higgs portal and the Z boson associated with the new gauge symmetry. The dark matter direct detection bound is found to impose a strong constraint on the new gauge coupling.
