# Better Higgs boson measurements through information geometry

@article{Brehmer2017BetterHB, title={Better Higgs boson measurements through information geometry}, author={Johann Brehmer and Kyle Cranmer and Felix Kling and Tilman Plehn}, journal={Physical Review D}, year={2017}, volume={95}, pages={073002} }

Information geometry can be used to understand and optimize Higgs boson measurements at the LHC. The Fisher information encodes the maximum sensitivity of observables to model parameters for a given experiment. Applied to higher-dimensional operators, it defines the new physics reach of any LHC signature. We calculate the Fisher information for Higgs production in weak boson fusion with decays into tau pairs and four leptons and for Higgs production in association with a single top quark. In a…
