Description

This will be a virtual seminar, and will be hosted in Zoom

Several HH searches are already being performed in ATLAS with different final states, but no evidence of SM-like HH production is expected until High-Luminosity LHC. The associated production of a single Higgs boson via ZH is a background in HH searches. When considering ZH, the cross-section is larger than for the corresponding SM-like HH channel. A slight modification of the HH search to detect ZH instead of HH with a focus on the $bb\tau\tau$ channel, as a first step towards HH detection, is ongoing and will be also presented.
