Abstract: A search is presented for a charged Higgs boson heavier than the top quark, produced in association with a top quark, or with a top and a bottom quark, and decaying into a top-bottom quark-antiquark pair. The search is performed using proton-proton collision data collected by the CMS experiment at the LHC at a center-of-mass energy of 13 TeV, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 35.9 fb$^{-1}$. Events are selected by the presence of a single isolated charged lepton (electron or muon) or an opposite-sign dilepton (electron or muon) pair, categorized according to the jet multiplicity and the number of jets identified as originating from b quarks. Multivariate analysis techniques are used to enhance the discrimination between signal and background in each category. The data are compatible with the standard model, and 95% confidence level upper limits of 9.6-0.01 pb are set on the charged Higgs boson production cross section times branching fraction to a top-bottom quark-antiquark pair, for charged Higgs boson mass hypotheses ranging from 200 GeV to 3 TeV. The upper limits are interpreted in different minimal supersymmetric extensions of the standard model. | ||

Summary |
A search is presented for a charged Higgs boson decaying into a top-bottom quark-antiquark pair when produced in association with a top quark or a top and a bottom quark. The analyzed proton-proton collision data, collected at $\sqrt{s}=$ 13 TeV with the CMS detector at the LHC, correspond to an integrated luminosity of 35.9 fb$^{-1}$. The search uses events with a single isolated electron or muon or an opposite-sign electron or muon pair. Events are categorized according to the jet multiplicity and the number of jets identified as containing a b-hadron decay. Multivariate techniques are used to discriminate between signal and background events, the latter being dominated by $\mathrm{t\bar{t}}$ production. Results are presented for a charged Higgs boson with a mass larger than the top quark mass. 95% confidence level upper limits of 9.6-0.01 pb are set on the product of the charged Higgs boson production cross section and the branching fraction into a top-bottom quark-antiquark pair, ${\sigma_{\mathrm{H}^\pm}}{\mathcal{B}(\mathrm{H}^\pm\!\to\!\mathrm{t}\mathrm{b})}={\sigma({\mathrm{p}}{\mathrm{p}}\!\to\mathrm{H}^{+}\bar{\mathrm{t}}\mathrm{b} + {\mathrm{p}}{\mathrm{p}}\!\to\mathrm{H}^{+}\bar{\mathrm{t}})}{\mathcal{B}(\mathrm{H}^+\!\to\!\mathrm{t}\bar{\mathrm{b}})}+{\sigma({\mathrm{p}}{\mathrm{p}}\!\to\mathrm{H}^{-}\mathrm{t}\bar{\mathrm{b}} + {\mathrm{p}}{\mathrm{p}}\!\to\mathrm{H}^{-}\mathrm{t})}{\mathcal{B}(\mathrm{H}^-\!\to\!\bar{\mathrm{t}}\mathrm{b})}$, in the mass range from 200 GeV to 3 TeV, representing an improvement over previous results [31,32,33] by a factor of about 2-7 in the given mass range. Exclusion regions in the parameter space of the minimal supersymmetric standard model ${m_\mathrm{h}^\mathrm{mod-}} $ and ${M_\mathrm{h}^\mathrm{125}(\tilde{\chi})} $ benchmark scenarios are presented. |

Additional Figure 18:
Observed limits (solid black points) interpreted as a 95% CL exclusion region (light-grey area) in the MSSM ($m_{{\mathrm {H}} ^{\pm}}$, $ {\tan\beta} $) parameter space in the ${M_\mathrm {h}^\text {125}(\tilde{\tau})}$ benchmark scenario, compared to the expected limit assuming only standard model processes (dashed line). The green (yellow) error bands represent one (two) standard deviations from the expected limit. The region below the red line is excluded assuming that the observed neutral Higgs boson is the light CP-even 2HDM Higgs boson with a mass of 125 $\pm$ 3 GeV, where the uncertainty is the theoretical uncertainty in the mass calculation. |
