Abstract

Many models of physics beyond the standard model yield exotic Higgs decays. Some of these, particularly those in which the Higgs decays to light quarks or gluons, can be very difficult to discover experimentally. Here we introduce a new set of jet substructure techniques designed to search for such a Higgs when its dominant decay is into gluons via light, uncolored resonances. We study this scenario in both V+h and tt̄+h production channels, and find both channels lead to discovery at the LHC with 5σ at L∼100fb-1.
