Abstract (data abstract)
CERN-LHC. Searches for resonant and nonresonant pair-produced Higgs bosons (HH) decaying respectively into lnulnu, through either W or Z bosons, and bbbar. Based on a sample of proton-proton collisions at a centre-of-mass energy of 13 TeV corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 35.9 fb−1. The main background processes, in decreasing order of importance, are ttbar, Drell-Yan, and single top quark production. Diboson, triboson, ttV and SM single Higgs boson production are also considered. Other contributions, such as W+jets or QCD multijet events with jets misidentified as leptons, are negligible. Background simulation samples have been generated at NLO in QCD using powheg and MadGraph5 amc@nlo with FxFx merging and MadSpin. The signal samples of gluon fusion production of two Higgs bosons, and of spin-0 or spin-2 narrow resonances decaying into two Higgs bosons, have been generated at leading order (LO) in QCD using MadGraph5 amc@nlo version 2.2.2.0. The event generators used for both signal and background samples are interfaced with pythia 8.212. The NNPDF 3.0 LO and NLO Parton Distribution Functions (PDF) are used. Jets are reconstructed using a particle flow (PF) technique. PF candidates are clustered to form jets using the anti-kT clustering algorithm with a distance parameter of 0.4. Region of interest is defined as: - two leptons and two b-tagged jets - (Pt_l1, Pt_l2) > (25GeV,15GeV) for the ee and mue channels - (Pt_l1, Pt_l2) > (20GeV,10GeV) for the mumu channel - (Pt_l1, Pt_l2) > (25GeV,10GeV) for the emu channel - abs(eta_mu) < 2.4 - abs(eta_el) < 2.5 - pT_jet > 20GeV - abs(eta_jet) < 2.4 - Delta_R(jet,lepton)>0.3 - 12 < m_ll < mZ −15 GeV
