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) as well as two Higgs doublet models (2HDM). The analysis is based on data from proton-proton collisions at a center-of-mass energy of 13 TeV collected with the CMS detector at the LHC, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 35.7 fb-1. No signal above the standard model background expectation is observed. The tables give upper limits on the cross section times branching fraction for Higgs bosons with masses up to 1300 GeV, and upper limits for the MSSM parameter tan(beta) as function of the mass of the pseudoscalar MSSM Higgs bosons H/A within different MSSM benchmark scenarios. Only selected tables are displayed here. Please see the full paper for interpretations in other MSSM benchmark scenarios and 2HDM.
