Description

Results for a Higgs boson search by the ATLAS experiment in the WH->lnubb and H->WW->lnulnu decay modes using a multivariate approach are presented. The results are based on data taken in 2011 at 7 TeV center-of-mass energy. No evidence is found for a Standard Model-like Higgs boson in either decay mode. Exclusion limits in terms of the ratio to expected SM rate are reported in Higgs mass ranges of 115-130 GeV and 120-600 GeV respectively in the two modes.
