Precise determination of the mass of the Higgs boson and tests of compatibility of its couplings with the standard model predictions using proton collisions at 7 and 8 $$\,\text {TeV}$$ TeV. The European Physical Journal C, 75(5). doi:10.1140/epjc/s10052-015-3351-7 en_US dc.identifier.uri http://hdl.handle.net/1808/22066 dc.description.abstract Properties of the Higgs boson with mass near 125GeV are measured in proton-proton collisions with the CMS experiment at the LHC. Comprehensive sets of production and decay measurements are combined. The decay channels include γγ, ZZ, WW, ττ, bb, and μμ pairs. The data samples were collected in 2011 and 2012 and correspond to integrated luminosities of up to 5.1fb-1 at 7TeV and up to 19.7fb-1 at 8TeV. From the high-resolution γγ and ZZ channels, the mass of the Higgs boson is determined to be 125.02+0.26−0.27(stat)+0.14−0.15(syst)GeV. For this mass value, the event yields obtained in the different analyses tagging specific decay channels and production mechanisms are consistent with those expected for the standard model Higgs boson. The combined best-fit signal relative to the standard model expectation is 1.00±0.09(stat)+0.08−0.07(theo)±0.07(syst) en_US at the measured mass. The couplings of the Higgs boson are probed for deviations in magnitude from the standard model predictions in multiple ways, including searches for invisible and undetected decays. No significant deviations are found. This paper is dedicated to the memory of Robert Brout and Gerald Guralnik, whose seminal contributions helped elucidate the mechanism for spontaneous breaking of the electroweak symmetry. dc.publisher Springer Verlag en_US dc.rights © CERN for the benefit of the CMS collaboration 2015.
