With the full Run2 data set of the LHC at sqrt(s)=13 TeV it is possible to search for subdominant production modes of the Higgs boson at a pp collider, like associate production of the Higgs with two b-quarks, with a c-quark, or vector boson scattering production with two associated Ws, profiting of high BR decay modes. Vice versa, by using all the possible production mechanism, searches for ultra rare decays like H->gamma+ phi/rho/K*0 can probe the Yukawa couplings to the light u,d,s quarks and the presence of BSM effects that can enhance these processes.
