Cavendish Colloquium Room

Very recent results combining ATLAS and CMS data show the Higgs decaying to tautau signal at more than 5 sigma confidence level. This talk will review the ATLAS H to tau+tau analysis, and the ATLAS+CMS combination. Additionally I will look at the properties of the Htautau channel that make it a unique tool for measuring the H CP quantum state, and for searching for extensions to the Standard Model as we begin Run 2.
