Rescuing H → \( b\bar b\) in VBF at the LHC by Requiring a Central Photon
The LHC potential for a measurement of the Higgs boson coupling to the b quark in the standard model is not well established yet.We show that requiring a large transverse momentum photon in the light Higgs boson production via vectorboson fusion (with subsequent H → \( b\bar b\) decay) could provide a further handle on the H \( b\bar b\) coupling determination, and on the measurement of the HWW coupling as well.
