3 VBF Signal (H WW l l ) Cross section ~20% of gg- production BUT clear signature forward tagging jets correlated leptons low hadronic activity in central region central Higgs production Based on parton level study by Zeppenfeld and Rainwater hep-ph/9906218 Conclusion: >5 observation with 5fb -1 at LHC in the mass range 130-200 GeV Tagging jet H W W Z/W

4 Backgrounds tt+jets t Wb jets produced centrally Use tagging, b-veto, central-jet veto QCD WW+jets, +jets Does not have lepton correlation Reduced using central-jet veto Low tag-jet invariant mass -veto EW WWjj+ jj Signal-like difficult to reduce

5 Analysis Signal, tt+jets and QCD backgrounds generated using PYTHIA 6.1 (with ISR, FSR, MI), CTEQ5L structure functions EW backgrounds generated using Zeppenfeld and Rainwater parton level and interfaced to PYTHIA for PS (with ISR and FSR) and hadronization tt-background, Z+jet and Z generated using ME and PYTHIA interface for comparison with PYTHIA tt-generation TAUOLA is used for tau-decays Detector simulation with ATLFAST

6 Jet tagging and reconstruction Tag jets defined as jets with highest p T in each hemisphere Comparison of jet construction with ATLFAST and full-simulation Fake jet rate in the central region has been studied. 20 GeV threshold at low luminosity Must be raised at higher luminosity.
