Abstract

A measurement of off-shell Higgs boson production in the ZZ→4and ZZ→22νdecay channels, where stands for either an electron or a muon, is performed using data from proton–proton collisions at a centre-of-mass energy of √s=13TeV. The data were collected by the ATLAS experiment in 2015 and 2016 at the Large Hadron Collider, and they correspond to an integrated luminosity of 36.1fb−1. An observed (expected) upper limit on the off-shell Higgs signal strength, defined as the event yield normalised to the Standard Model prediction, of 3.8(3.4) is obtained at 95% confidence level(CL). Assuming the ratio of the Higgs boson couplings to the Standard Model predictions is independent of the momentum transfer of the Higgs production mechanism considered in the analysis, a combination with the on-shell signal-strength measurements yields an observed(expected) 95% CL upper limit on the Higgs boson total width of 14.4(15.2)MeV
