A Search for the Higgs Boson in H->ZZ->2leptons 2jets Mode


A search for the Standard Model Higgs boson decaying to two Z bosons with subsequent decay to a final state with two leptons and two quark-jets, H->ZZ->2l 2jets, where \ell = e, {\mu}, is discussed. It is based on an integrated luminosity of 1 fb-1 of proton-proton collision data at center of mass energy sqrt(s) = 7 TeV collected by the CMS experiment at the LHC. The data are compared to the expected Standard Model backgrounds. No evidence for the Higgs boson is found and upper limits are placed on its production cross section over the range of masses between 200 GeV and 600 GeV.Comment: To appear in the Proceedings of the DPF 2011 Conferenc
