Title: Measurements of Higgs boson production and couplings in diboson final states with the ATLAS detector at the LHC

Abstract

Measurements are presented of production properties and couplings of the recently discovered Higgs boson using the decays into boson pairs, H→γγ, H→ZZ*→4ℓ and H→WW*→ℓνℓν. The results are based on the complete pp collision data sample recorded by the ATLAS experiment at the CERN Large Hadron Collider at centre-of-mass energies of $$ \sqrt{s}$$=7 TeV and $$ \sqrt{s}$$=8 TeV, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of about 25 fb-1. Evidence for Higgs boson production through vector-boson fusion is reported. Results of combined fits probing Higgs boson couplings to fermions and bosons, as well as anomalous contributions to loop-induced production and decay modes, are presented. All measurements are consistent with expectations for the Standard Model Higgs boson.

Table 1 Table 1: Main sources of experimental uncertainty, and of theoretical uncertainty on the signal yield, common to the three channels considered in this study. Theoretical uncertainties are given for a SM Higgs boson of mass $m$$H$ = 125 GeV and are taken from Refs. [14–16]. “QCD scale” indicates (here andmore » throughout this Letter) QCD renormalisation and factorisation scales and “PDFs” indicates parton distribution functions. The ranges for the experimental uncertainties cover the variations with $p$T and $η$.« less
