Higgs boson production cross-sections in proton–proton collisions are measured in the H→WW⁎→eνμν decay channel. The proton–proton collision data were produced at the Large Hadron Collider at a centre-of-mass energy of 13 TeV and recorded by the ATLAS detector in 2015 and 2016, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 36.1fb−1. The product of the H→WW⁎ branching fraction times the gluon–gluon fusion and vector-boson fusion cross-sections are measured to be 11.4−1.1+1.2(stat.)−1.7+1.8(syst.)pb and 0.50−0.22+0.24(stat.)±0.17(syst.)pb, respectively, in agreement with Standard Model predictions.
