Title: Search for associated Higgs boson production using like charge dilepton events in p p collisions at √s = 1.96 TeV

Abstract

We present a search for associated Higgs boson production in the process pp→ W/ZH → ell ± ell ± + X in ee, eμ, and μμ final states. The search is based on data collected by the D0 experiment at the Fermilab Tevatron Collider at √s = 1.96 TeV corresponding to 5.3 fb -1 of integrated luminosity. We require two isolated leptons (electrons or muons) with the same electric charge and additional kinematic requirements. No significant excess above background is observed, and we set 95% C.L. observed (expected) upper limits on ratio of the production cross sectin to the standard model expectation of 6.4 (7.3) for a Higgs boson mass of 165 GeV and 13.5 (19.8) for a mass of 115 GeV.
