"Measuring the top-Higgs coupling at CMS "

Evan Wolfe , UVA - Department of Physics
[Host: Chris Neu]

The top-Higgs coupling is one of the remaining characteristics that has yet to be measured for the newly discovered boson. Though the standard model predicts a value for this coupling, many extensions to the standard model provide enhancements to the predicted value. While indirect measurements of the top-Higgs coupling are possible, the best approach is measuring this coupling directly at the LHC -- and the best production mechanism is through the Higgs produced in association with a top-quark pair, ttH production. This presentation will discuss the ttH results from Run I at CMS, challenges and progress of the search in Run II, and future outlook for the top-Higgs coupling measurement.
