We consider the generalized Yukawa model consisting of two Dirac fermions and two scalar fields. One of the scalars is assumed to be much heavier than the other particles, so it decouples at low energies. Low­energy effective Lagrangian (EL) of the model is derived. It describes the contributions of the heavy scalar into observables in the limit when this particle is decoupled. We consider the cross­sections of s­- and t­-channel processes, obtained within the complete model and its low-­energy approximation. The contributions of the
one­loop corrections in the cross-­sections coming from light particles are analyzed. These are corrections to the parameters of the heavy boson and the contributions of the one­-loop mixing of light and heavy scalars. We identify the ranges of Yukawa’s couplings where the corrections are significant. We find that if the interaction between fermions and either light or heavy scalar is strong enough, the derived EL could not be applied for the description of the analyzed cross-­sections even if the heavy scalar decouples. Implications of our results in searching for new particles beyond the Standard model are discussed.
