Measurements of the Higgs Boson in the H - τ τ decay channel

Abstract:

The generation of vector boson mass via the Higgs mechanism in the Standard Model has been confirmed by the 2012 discovery of a candidate Higgs boson in the HWW, HZZ, and H→γγ decay channels. In contrast, the Yukawa couplings hypothesized to provide the mass of fermions in the Standard Model have yet to be observed. The H→ττ decay channel currently provides the best opportunity for observing these couplings.

This thesis describes two se...
