Description

Results are presented on the search for the standard model Higgs bosons decaying into two photons, and into a photon and a Z boson. Multivariate techniques are used to enhance the sensitivity. The full data sample of 4.7 fb-1 of pp collisions collected in 2011 at a CM energy of 7 TeV with the CMS experiment have been analyzed, as well as a significant fraction of the 2012 luminosity delivered so far at the new CM energy of 8 TeV.
