Sunrise - WH11NE


Jamie Antonelli (The Ohio State University (US)), Javier Mauricio Duarte (Fermi National Accelerator Lab. (US))

The production of four top quarks (tttt) is within the reach of the 13 TeV LHC. In this talk, I will cover recent CMS results in the search for this standard model process, focusing on the results of arXiv:1710.10614, which provide a first, statistically limited, measurement of tttt. I will also discuss the interpretation of this result in probing new physics hypotheses, such as two Higgs doublet models, and to constrain the Yukawa coupling between the Higgs boson and the top quark.
