Subject: Measurement of gluon fusion and vector boson fusion Higgs boson production cross-sections in the H→ WW*→ eνμν decay channel in pp collisions at sqrt(s) = 13 TeV

The Higgs boson production cross-sections in proton-proton collisions are measured using the events in the H→WW*→eνμν decay channel. The measured cross sections probe the Higgs boson couplings to heavy bosons and to gluons. The proton-proton collision data were produced at the Large Hadron Collider at a centre-of-mass energy of 13 TeV and recorded by the ATLAS detector in 2015 and 2016, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 36.1 fb−1.
