Search for a light pseudoscalar Higgs boson produced in association with bottom quarks in pp collisions at $\sqrt{s}$ = 8 TeV. Journal of High Energy Physics, 11:010.

Abstract

A search for a light pseudoscalar Higgs boson (A) produced in association with bottom quarks and decaying into a muon pair is reported. The search uses 19.7 $fb{−1}$ of proton-proton collisions at a center-of-mass energy of 8 TeV, collected by the CMS experiment. No signal is observed in the dimuon mass range from 25 to 60 GeV. Upper limits on the cross section times branching fraction, $\sigma (pp \to b\overline{b}A)\mathcal{B}(A \to \mu \mu)$, are set.
