Abstract:
Properties of the Higgs boson are measured in the $\mathrm{H}\rightarrow{\rm Z}{\rm Z}\rightarrow4\ell$ ($\ell={\rm e},\mu$) decay channel. A data sample of proton-proton collisions at a center-of-mass energy of 13 TeV is used, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 35.9 fb$^{-1}$ recorded by the CMS detector at the LHC. The signal-strength modifier $\mu$, defined as the production cross section of the Higgs boson times its branching fraction to four leptons relative to the standard model expectation, is measured to be $ \mu = $ 1.05$^{+0.19}_{-0.17}$ at $m_{\mathrm{H}} = $ 125.09 GeV. The signal-strength modifiers for the main Higgs boson production modes have also been constrained. The mass is measured to be $ m_{ \mathrm { H } } = $ 125.26 $ \pm $ 0.21 GeV and the width is constrained using on-shell production to be $ \Gamma_{\mathrm{H}}< $ 1.10 GeV, at 95% CL. The fiducial cross section is measured to be 2.90$^{+0.48}_{-0.44}$ (stat.) $^{+0.27}_{-0.22}$ (sys.) fb, which is compatible with the standard model prediction of 2.72 $\pm$ 0.14 fb. Differential cross sections as a function of the $p_{\rm T}$ of the Higgs boson, the number of associated jets, and the $p_{\rm T}$ of the leading associated jet are determined.

Summary |

Several measurements of Higgs boson production in the four-lepton final state at $ \sqrt{s} = $ 13 TeV have been presented, using data samples corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 35.9 fb$^{-1}$. The measured signal strength modifier is $\mu =$ 1.05$^{+0.19}_{-0.17}$ = 1.05$^{+0.15}_{-0.14}$ (stat.) $^{+0.11}_{-0.09}$ (sys.), and the measured signal strength modifiers associated with fermions and vector bosons are ${\mu_{\mathrm{gg}\mathrm{ H },\,\mathrm{ t \bar{t} }\mathrm{ H }}} =$ 1.20$^{+0.35}_{-0.31}$ and ${\mu_{\mathrm{VBF},\mathrm{V\mathrm{ H }}}} =$ 0.00$^{+1.37}_{-0.00}$, respectively. The fiducial cross section at $ \sqrt{s} = $ 13 TeV for this boson is measured to be 2.90$^{+0.48}_{-0.44} $ (stat.) $^{+0.27}_{-0.22}$ (sys.) fb. The mass is measured to be $m_{{\rm H}}=$ 125.26 $\pm$ 0.20 (stat.) $\pm$ 0.08 (sys.) GeV and the width is constrained to be $\Gamma_{{\rm H}}< $ 1.10 GeV at 95% CL. All results are consistent, within their uncertainties, with the expectations for the SM Higgs boson. |
