Matt Klein (Michigan) “Search for Higgs boson decays to bottom quarks in the vector boson fusion production mode”

December 3, 2020 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

The Higgs boson is expected to decay to bb approximately 58% of the time. Despite the large branching fraction, due to the large background from SM events with b-jets, measuring this decay has been less precise than other, less frequent, decays. Measuring H(bb) in the VBF production mode has historically been insensitive, but developments in the background estimates and discrimination, as well as improvements in the signal extraction techniques, have resulted in an observed (expected) significance of 3.0 (3.0) standard deviations from the background-only hypothesis using the LHC Run 2 dataset.
