Searches for associated Higgs Boson production with top quark pair and Higgs pair production in multi lepton final states with the ATLAS detector

Abstract : Since the discovery of the Higgs boson at a mass around 125 GeV by both ATLAS and CMS collaborations in July 2012, it became crucial to measure its properties, such as its couplings to other particles, and search for any deviations from the Standard Model (SM) predictions. The top quark Yukawa coupling is close to unity and the strongest in the fermionic sector. Therefore, this coupling plays a crucial role in the theory. Determination of the associated production of The Higgs boson production with a pair of top quarks (ttH) offers a tree-level access to measuring this coupling. The analysis of ttH production at ATLAS experiment exploits several Higgs decay channel, together with different top quark decay modes. In this thesis, the study of the ttH (H → Multi lepton) process is presented in the topology where the Higgs decays to WW,ZZ or tautau, using a dataset corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 79.8fb^-1 at √s = 13 TeV, collected with the ATLAS detector between 2015-2017. Improved knowledge on the background modelling and the complex fit model is used with many degrees of freedoms. Particularly different fit setups are presented in order to understand the modelling of the major irreducible background, ttW. Furthermore, a search for the SM Higgs boson pair production in the multi lepton final states is presented. The search uses 139fb^-1 of proton-proton collisions data at a centre-of-mass energy of 13 TeV provided by the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) and recorded by the ATLAS experiment in 2015 and 2018. The first studies in two lepton same-sign channel is performed for lepton working point optimisation and estimation of background contributions. Template fit method is applied to estimated the reducible backgrounds and preliminary expected upper limit is calculated.
