Plan of the Activity (both Higgs signals and SM backgrounds)

  • differential K-factor
  • overview of background determination methods (data-driven, non-data driven)
  • list of LO/NLO Monte Carlo's
  • wish List for theorists
    • NLO signal generator for ttH->ttbb

Common cuts definition between ATLAS and CMS


  • pt(H)>200 GeV
  • pt(V)>200 GeV
  • No additional C/A jets with pt > 20 GeV (|eta|<2.4)
