Description

We investigate the potential for measuring the relative couplings of a low-mass Higgs boson at the Large Hadron Collider using W H, ZH, and ttH production, where the Higgs boson decays to tau-lepton pairs. With 100 fb−1 of sqrt(s) = 14 TeV pp collision data we find that these modes can improve coupling-ratio sensitivity for a Higgs boson mass between 115 and 135 GeV/c2 .
