Recent Higgs Boson Measurements from the CMS Experiment

Speaker: David Sperka, University of Florida

When: May 23, 2017 (Tue), 03:30PM to 04:30PM (add to my calendar)
Location: PRB 595
Hosted by: Tulika Bose

This event is part of the High Energy Experiment Seminar Series.

The discovery of the Higgs boson in 2012 was one of the most significant discoveries in particle physics, completing the picture of the Standard Model. However, several questions about the Higgs Boson, such as its relatively light mass as well as its pattern of couplings to fermions, remain unanswered. Precision measurements are essential to map out the unexplored Higgs Sector, and may also act as a window to physics beyond the Standard Model.

In this talk I will discuss the latest results from CMS on measurements of the properties of the Higgs Boson using data collected at √s = 13 TeV in 2016. I will also discuss the prospects for future measurements at the High Luminosity LHC.
