The coupling can be directly probed by measuring the rate of events in which a Higgs boson is produced in association with a pair of top quarks.
The Higgs boson decays to a pair of b quarks is by far the most frequent decay channel, however the signal is overwhelmed by QCD production.
While only retaining 40% of the events, the total uncertainty is improved by 19%, leading to a top-quark mass of 172.08±0.91 GeV.
The electroweak mixing angle is a key parameter defining how the SM unifies the electromagnetic and weak forces.
This year’s EPS conference was also the first large conference where the results from the 2015 and 2016 runs of the LHC at 13 TeV were presented.
To find evidence for the H → bb decay in the VH production channel, it is necessary to use detailed information on the properties of the decay products.
A recent analysis by CMS aimed to identify events in which a W-boson pair is produced purely via the electroweak interaction.
One of the most sensitive measurement channels involves Higgs boson decays via two Z bosons to four leptons.
The Muon g-2 experiment at Fermilab has begun its three-year-long campaign to measure the magnetic moment of the muon with unprecedented precision.
“I think we have it, no?” was the question posed in the CERN auditorium on 4 July 2012 by Rolf Heuer, CERN’s Director-General at the time.
