Precision Higgs Physics : the Higgs Boson decaying into two photons at LHC

The discovery in 2012 of the Higgs boson by the ATLAS and CMS Collaborations at the CERN Large Hadron Collider (LHC) has opened a new era for particle physics. In the Standard Model (SM) of particle interactions, the Higgs boson appears as the quantum excitation of one of the components of the scalar Higgs fields, responsible via the Brout-Englert-Higgs mechanism for the electroweak symmetry breaking. The complete characterization of the properties of the Higgs boson represents the center of the ATLAS physics program during the LHC Run 2. The decay mode of the Higgs boson in two photons played a fundamental role in the Higgs boson discovery in 2012, and allows since then to precisely study its differential production cross-section as a function of various kinematical and production-related variables, e.g. the number of accompanying jets.
