    Measurement of Higgs Properties at the LHC

    A SM-like Higgs boson can be produced in a variety of channels at the LHC. By combining information from production via gluon fusion and weak boson fusion, various partial widths and the total Higgs boson width can be extracted. Expected accuracies for 200 fb^{-1} of data are in the 10% range.Comment: 6 pages, Revtex (singlespaced), uses epsfig.sty, 1 postscript figure.

    Searching for H -> gamma gamma in weak boson fusion at the LHC

    Full text link
    Weak boson fusion is a copious source of intermediate mass Higgs bosons at the LHC, with a rate sigma*B(H -> gamma gamma) of up to 9 fb. The additional very energetic forward jets in these events provide for a unique signature. A parton level analysis of the dominant backgrounds demonstrates that this channel allows the observation of H -> gamma gamma in a low background environment, with modest luminosity.Comment: 12 pages, 4 figures, submitted to Journal of High Energy Physic

    QCD corrections to hadronic WWZ production with leptonic decays

    Full text link
    Multi-lepton signatures appear in many new physics searches at the Large Hadron Collider. We here consider WWZ production with subsequent leptonic decay of the three vector bosons as a SM source of multi-lepton events. We have calculated the next-to-leading order QCD corrections for the full pp→6p p\to 6 lepton production cross sections in hadronic collisions. Results have been implemented in the form of a flexible parton-level Monte-Carlo program which allows to calculate the QCD corrections for arbitrary distributions and acceptance cuts.Comment: 11 pages, 4 figures, version published in physics letters
