Abstract:

Higgs Boson Decays to tau-pairs
in the s-channel at a Muon Collider

V. Barger, T. Han and C.-G. Zhou

Abstract
We study the observability of the tau tau decay mode of a
Higgs boson produced in the s-channel at a muon collider.
We find that the spin correlations of the tau tau in
tau -> pi nu_tau, rho nu_tau decays are discriminative
between the Higgs boson signal and the Standard Model background.
Observation of the predicted distinctive distribution can
confirm the spin-0 nature of the Higgs resonance.
The relative coupling strength of the Higgs boson to b
and tau can also be experimentally determined.
