Search for Higgs bosons decaying to aa in the μμττ final state in pp collisions at √s = 8 TeV with the ATLAS experiment G. Aad, B. Abbott, J. Abdallah [et.al.]

A | Abbott, B | Томский государственный университет Радиофизический факультет Научные подразделения РФФMaterial type: ArticleArticleSubject(s): ATLAS, детектор | Большой адронный коллайдер | Хиггса бозон | столкновение частицGenre/Form: статьи в журналахOnline resources: Click here to access online In: Physical Review D Vol. 92, № 5. P. 052002-1-052002-24Abstract: A search for the decay to a pair of new particles of either the 125 GeV Higgs boson (h) or a second charge parity (CP)-even Higgs boson (H) is presented. The data set corresponds to an integrated luminosity of 20.3 fb−1 of pp collisions at √s = 8 TeV recorded by the ATLAS experiment at the LHC in 2012. The search was done in the context of the next-to-minimal supersymmetric standard model, in which the new particles are the lightest neutral pseudoscalar Higgs bosons (a). One of the two a bosons is required to decay to two muons while the other is required to decay to two τ leptons. No significant excess is observed above the expected backgrounds in the dimuon invariant mass range from 3.7 to 50 GeV. Upper limits are placed on the production of h → aa relative to the standard model gg → h production, assuming no coupling of the a boson to quarks. The most stringent limit is placed at 3.5% for ma ¼ 3.75 GeV. Upper limits are also placed on the production cross section of H → aa from 2.33 to 0.72 pb, for fixed ma ¼ 5 GeV with mH ranging from 100 to 500 GeV.
