Abstract:
Since its discovery a large effort has been made to improve analyses and make precision measurments of the properties of the Higgs Boson. At a mass of 125 GeV Higgs to bb is the dominant decay mode. However, large QCD backgrounds mean that the gluon-gluon fusion production mode is not directly accessible at the LHC. Instead an analysis of Higgs to bb can considered where the Higgs is produced in association with a Vector Boson (W/Z). This document outlines such an analysis perfomed on the ATLAS Run I 8 TeV data with focus on one particular channel where the Higgs is produces in association with a Z Boson which subsequently decays to a pair of neutrinos.
