Higgs boson self-interactions can be investigated via di-Higgs (pp→hh+X) production at the LHC. With a small O(30) fb Standard Model production cross section, and a large View the MathML source background, this measurement has been considered challenging, even at a luminosity-upgraded LHC. We demonstrate that by using simple kinematic bounding variables, of the sort already employed in existing LHC searches, the dominant View the MathML source background can be largely eliminated. Simulations of the signal and the dominant background demonstrate the prospect for measurement of the di-Higgs production cross section at the 30% level using 3 ab−1 of integrated luminosity at a high luminosity LHC. This corresponds to a Higgs self-coupling determination with 60% accuracy in the View the MathML source mode, with potential for further improvements from e.g. subjet technologies and from additional di-Higgs decay channels.
