Description

After the discovery of a Standard Model like Higgs boson, new searches can now change focus towards using it as a tool to probe the Standard Model and new physics. With the largest branching fraction, the bb̅bb̅ final state is one of the leading candidates to observe this process, but the overwhelming backgrounds and the highly boosted topology reached by this process, present a challenge. This talk will outline a few of these issues and explore novel techniques to mitigate their effect.
