Physics and Astronomy Calendar

Wednesday, January 24th 2018
Speaker: Dr. Shilpi Jain. National Central University Taiwan.
Subject: Search for H-->Zgamma—>llgamma with the CMS detector
Note change of time and room from previous announcement.

Jain will talk about the search for a Higgs boson decaying into a Z boson and a photon. The analysis is performed using a dataset recorded by the CMS experiment at the LHC from proton-proton collisions at a centre-of-mass energy of 13 TeV corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 35.9 fb-1. Limits are set on the cross section of a standard model Higgs boson decaying to electron or muon pairs and a photon. The expected exclusion limits at 95% confidence level are between 9 and 4 times the standard model cross section in the mass range of 120 and 130 GeV.
