Description

The detection of the SM H→μμ decay is important to study the Higgs
boson Yukawa couplings to the 2nd generation fermions. Discovering the signal
of Higgs boson decay to dimuon is extremely challenging due to the small decay
branching fraction (2.2x10-4) and very large irreducible background from
Drell-Yan production at the LHC. The search for the H→μμ decay has been a high
profile analysis in Higgs physics study program. This poster presents the
latest search method and results at the time of the conference. Using the
combined data sets from LHC Run 1 to Run 2, we present the limit on the signal
strength of H→μμ.
