Title: Search for beyond the standard model Higgs bosons decaying into a $$\mathrm{b\overline{b}}$$ pair in pp collisions at $$\sqrt{s} =$$ 13 TeV

Abstract

A search for Higgs bosons that decay into a bottom quark-antiquark pair and are accompanied by at least one additional bottom quark is performed with the CMS detector. The data analyzed were recorded in proton-proton collisions at a centre-of-mass energy of $$\sqrt{s} =$$ 13 TeV at the LHC, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 35.7 fb$$^{-1}$$. The final state considered in this analysis is particularly sensitive to signatures of a Higgs sector beyond the standard model, as predicted in the generic class of two Higgs doublet models (2HDMs). No signal above the standard model background expectation is observed. Stringent upper limits on the cross section times branching fraction are set for Higgs bosons with masses up to 130 GeV. The results are interpreted within several MSSM and 2HDM scenarios.
