Abstract (data abstract)
CERN-LHC. The analysis searches for neutral Higgs bosons which decay into a bb quark pair and are produced in association with at least one additional b quark. This signature is sensitive to the Higgs sector of the minimal supersymmetric standard model (MSSM) with large values of the parameter tan(beta). The analysis is based on data from proton-proton collisions at a center-of-mass energy of 8 TeV collected with the CMS detectorat the LHC, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 19.7 fb-1. The results are combined with a previous analysis based on 7 TeV data. No signal is observed. The tables give upper limits on the cross section times branching fraction for Higgs bosons with masses up to 900 GeV, and upper limits for the MSSM parameter tan(beta) as function of the mass of the pseudoscalar MSSM Higgs boson A within different MSSM benchmark scenarios. Only selected tables are displayed here. Please see the full paper for interpretations in other MSSM benchmark scenarios.
