Search for a heavy scalar decaying into the Higgs boson and missing energy with the ATLAS detector

Abstract

A distortion of the Higgs transverse momentum spectrum was observed with Run I data. This feature can be interpreted as the production of a heavy scalar, H, decaying into the Higgs boson and something else, including missing transverse energy. This heavy scalar H has been hypothesised and is allowed to decay to the SM Higgs and a dark matter candidate, X, in order to probe the search for Higgs plus missing transverse momentum. Limits were placed on the brancing ratio on the H to hXX decay using Run II data. Prospects for the future analysis of this will be discussed. Techniques for the reconstraction of missing transverse momentum for Run II will also be reviewed.
