Description

This talk presents a search for Higgs boson pair production where one Higgs boson decays via $h\rightarrow bb$ and the other Higgs boson via $h\rightarrow WW^* \rightarrow \ell\nu qq$ (where $\ell$ is either an electron or a muon). The $bbWW^*$ final state is the second largest di-Higgs branching fraction after $hh\rightarrow bbbb$. This is the first search using the $bb\ell\nu qq$ final state to search for double Higgs production. Data from pp collisions recorded by the ATLAS detector at the LHC were collected at $\sqrt{s}$ = 13 TeV and correspond to an integrated luminosity of 36 fb$^{-1}$. The search is performed looking for non-resonant and resonant di-Higgs production with resonant masses ranging from 500 to 3000 GeV.
