Ximo Poveda Torres (CERN) " The Top-Higgs Connection: Measuring ttH Production with the ATLAS Experiment

January 24, 2019 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

The measurement of the Yukawa coupling of the top quark and
the Higgs boson, namely the two most massive fundamental particles
observed so far, is a crucial piece for understanding the mechanism of
fermion mass generation. The most promising way to directly probe this
coupling is by measuring the Higgs boson production in association with
a top quark pair (ttH). ATLAS recently observed ttH production using
√s=13 TeV LHC pp collision data, exploiting several Higgs boson decay
channels. Current ttH results will be summarized in this seminar, and
prospects for future measurements will also be discussed.
