# Search for Higgs-like bosons decaying into long-lived exotic particles

LHCb Collaboration; Bernet, R; Müller, K; Steinkampf, O; Straumann, U; Vollhardt, A; et al (2016). Search for Higgs-like bosons decaying into long-lived exotic particles. European Physical Journal C - Particles and Fields, 76:664.

## Abstract

A search is presented for massive long-lived particles, in the 20-60 ${GeV}$ mass range with lifetimes between 5 and 100 ps. The dataset used corresponds to $0.62\,\mathrm{fb}^{-1}$ of proton-proton collision data collected by the LHCb detector at $\sqrt{s} = 7\,\mathrm{TeV}$. The particles are assumed to be pair-produced by the decay of a Higgs-like boson with mass between 80 and 140 ${GeV}c^2$. No excess above the background expectation is observed and limits are set on the production cross-section as a function of the long-lived particle mass and lifetime and of the Higgs-like boson mass.

## TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
