Abstracts

Integrated fiducial cross sections for the production of four leptons via the H to 4l decays (l = e, mu) are measured in pp collisions at sqrt(s) = 7 and 8 TeV. Measurements are performed with data corresponding to integrated luminosities of 5.1 inverse femtobarns at 7 TeV, and 19.7 inverse femtobarns at 8 TeV, collected with the CMS experiment at the LHC. Differential cross sections are measured using the 8 TeV data, and are determined as functions of the transverse momentum and rapidity of the four-lepton system, accompanying jet multiplicity, transverse momentum of the leading jet, and difference in rapidity between the Higgs boson candidate and the leading jet. A measurement of the Z to 4l cross section, and its ratio to the H to 4l cross section is also performed. All cross sections are measured within a fiducial phase space defined by the requirements on lepton kinematics and event topology. The integrated H to 4l fiducial cross section is measured to be 0.56 +0.67-0.44 (stat) +0.21-0.06 (syst) fb at 7 TeV, and 1.11 +0.41-0.35 (stat) +0.14-0.10 (syst) fb at 8 TeV. The measurements are found to be compatible with theoretical calculations based on the standard model.
