Abstract
Searches for non-resonant and resonant Higgs boson pair production are performed in the γγWW∗ channel with the final state of γγℓνjj using 36.1 fb - 1 of proton–proton collision data recorded at a centre-of-mass energy of s=13 TeV by the ATLAS detector at the Large Hadron Collider. No significant deviation from the Standard Model prediction is observed. A 95% confidence-level observed upper limit of 7.7 pb is set on the cross section for non-resonant production, while the expected limit is 5.4 pb. A search for a narrow-width resonance X decaying to a pair of Standard Model Higgs bosons HH is performed with the same set of data, and the observed upper limits on σ(pp→ X) × B(X→ HH) range between 40.0 and 6.1 pb for masses of the resonance...

When deriving the limits above, the Standard Model branching ratios of the H→ γγ and H→ WW∗ are assumed. © 2018, CERN for the benefit of the ATLAS collaboration. (Less)
