Measuring the Higgs-bottom coupling in weak boson fusion.

Englert, Christoph and Mattelaer, Olivier and Spannowsky, Michael (2016) 'Measuring the Higgs-bottom coupling in weak boson fusion.', Physics letters B., 756 . pp. 103-108.


We study Higgs production through weak boson fusion with subsequent decay to bottom quarks. By combining jet substructure techniques and matrix element methods in different limits we motivate this channel as a probe of the bottom-Yukawa interactions in the boosted regime. In particular we ameliorate the “no-go” results of cut-and-count analyses in this channel. After applying a data-driven reconstruction approach we find that the Higgs-bottom coupling can be limited to View the MathML source with 600 fb−1.
