Search for an additional, heavy Higgs boson in the H → ZZ decay channel at √s = 8 TeV in pp collision data with the ATLAS detector

A search is presented for a high-mass Higgs boson in the H → ZZ → ℓ+ℓ−ℓ+ℓ−, H → ZZ → ℓ+ℓ−ν¯ν , H → ZZ → ℓ+ℓ−q¯q, and H → ZZ → ν¯νq¯q decay modes using the ATLAS detector at the CERN Large Hadron Collider. The search uses proton–proton collision data at a centre-of-mass energy of 8 TeV corresponding...
