Higgs prospects with LHCb and its upgrades

Not scheduled
Yukawa Session Parallel


LHCb Collaboration


Thanks to the excellent vertex reconstruction system, the LHCb detector has demonstrated its capabilities in the identification of b- and c-jets.
The LHCb upgrades could be used to measure the H->bb production in a region complementary to ATLAS and CMS, and to search for the H->cc decay.
In this talk the jet heavy flavour tagging algorithm used at LHCb is reviewed, and measurements with b- and c-jets are presented.
Moreover the LHCb sensitivity to the H->bb and H->cc observations is discussed, and prospects on the forward Higgs physics in the future LHC data taking periods are given.
