    Abstract:

Further distribution of this work must maintain attribution to the author(s) and the published article's title, journal citation, and DOI.A search for the standard model Higgs boson produced in association with a vector boson with the decay H→ττ is presented. The data correspond to 20.3 fb-1 of integrated luminosity from proton-proton collisions at s=8 TeV recorded by the ATLAS experiment at the LHC during 2012. The data agree with the background expectation, and 95% confidence-level upper limits are placed on the cross section of this process. The observed (expected) limit, expressed in terms of the signal strength μ=σ/σSM for mH=125 GeV, is μ<5.6 (3.7). The measured value of the signal strength is μ=2.3±1.6.
