1306.1784 (Yoshikazu Nagai et al.)

Higgs Search in $b\bar{b}$ Signatures at ATLAS and CMS    [PDF]

Yoshikazu Nagai, on behalf of the ATLAS, CMS Collaborations
We report on searches for the Standard Model Higgs boson decaying to $b \bar{b}$ in $pp$ collisions at the ATLAS and CMS experiments. These rely on signatures where the Higgs boson is produced in association with a vector boson or in association with a top-quark pair. Results are presented, based on $5.0~\mathrm{fb}^{-1}$ of $pp$ collision data at $\sqrt{s} = 7$~TeV and up to $13.0~\mathrm{fb}^{-1}$ of data at $\sqrt{s} = 8$~TeV collected by the LHC accelerator. These are expressed in terms of 95\% confidence level upper limits on the production cross section of the Standard Model Higgs boson times the branching ratio to decay to $b$-quark pair.
