Abstract

A search is reported for the standard model Higgs boson in the H -> ZZ -> l(+)l(-)tau(+)tau(-) decay mode, where l = mu or e, in proton-proton collisions at root s = 7 TeV, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 4.7 fb(-1) collected with the CMS detector at the LHC. No evidence is found for a significant deviation from the background expectation. An upper limit four to twelve times larger than the predicted value is set at 95% confidence level for the product of the standard model Higgs boson production cross section and decay branching fraction in the mass range 190 < m(H) < 600 GeV.
