Abstracts

A search with the ATLAS detector is presented for the Standard Model Higgs boson produced by vector-boson fusion and decaying to a pair of bottom quarks, using 20.2?fb?1?of LHC proton--proton collision data at?s√?= 8 TeV. The signal is searched for as a resonance in the invariant mass distribution of a pair of jets containing?b-hadrons in vector-boson-fusion candidate events. The yield is measured to be??0.8±2.3?times the Standard Model cross-section for a Higgs boson mass of 125 GeV. The upper limit on the cross-section times the branching ratio is found to be 4.4 times the Standard Model cross-section at the 95% confidence level, consistent with the expected limit value of 5.4 (5.7) in the background-only (Standard Model production) hypothesis.
