Title: Measurement of differential cross sections for Higgs boson production in the diphoton decay channel in pp collisions at $$\sqrt{s}$$ = 8 TeV

Abstract

© 2016, CERN for the benefit of the CMS collaboration. A measurement is presented of differential cross sections for Higgs boson (H) production in pp collisions at √s = 8TeV. The analysis exploits the H→γγ decay in data corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 19.7fb -1 collected by the CMS experiment at the LHC. The cross section is measured as a function of the kinematic properties of the diphoton system and of the associated jets. Results corrected for detector effects are compared with predictions at next-to-leading order and next-to-next-to-leading order in perturbative quantum chromodynamics, as well as with predictions beyond the standard model. For isolated photons with pseudorapidities |η| < 2.5, and with the photon of largest and next-to-largest transverse momentum (p T γ ) divided by the diphoton mass mγγ satisfying the respective conditions of p T γ /mγγ > 1/3 and > 1/4, the total fiducial cross section is 32±10fb.
