Another example of pheno-exp interaction at CP3: search for single top + Higgs in the H->bb decay channel

One of the most praised aspects of working at CP3 is the strong interaction between the local theorists and experimentalists. A very recent example of that is the search for single top + Higgs in the H->bb decay channel, which was studied in depth at CP3 from the phenomenological point of view in [1], and searched in 20/fb of CMS data collected in 2012 at a center-of-mass energy of 8 TeV as reported in [2].

The Physics Department at UCLouvain has been involved for a number of decades in high energy particle physics research, equally strongly on the experimental and instrumental fronts as on the theoretical one. In spite of being located in physically distinct places, all these activities are now brought together within a common organisational structure, the Centre for Cosmology, Particle Physics and Phenomenology (CP3). This structure reinforces the collaboration of these varied components and competences in the physics of the fundamental interactions and the elementary particles.
