Search for Narrow H? Resonances in Proton-Proton Collisions at ?s=13??TeV

Abstract: A search for heavy, narrow resonances decaying to a Higgs boson and a photon (H?) has been performed in proton-proton collision data at a center-of-mass energy of 13 TeV, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 35.9??fb?1 collected with the CMS detector at the LHC in 2016. Events containing a photon and a Lorentz-boosted hadronically decaying Higgs boson reconstructed as a single, large-radius jet are considered, and the ?+jet invariant mass spectrum is analyzed for the presence of narrow resonances. To increase the sensitivity of the search, events are categorized depending on whether or not the large-radius jet can be identified as a result of the merging of two jets originating from b quarks. Results in both categories are found to agree with the predictions of the standard model. Upper limits on the production rate of H? resonances are set as a function of their mass in the range of 720?3250 GeV, representing the most stringent constraints to date.
