H->WW channel at ATLAS

Today is started Higgs Hunting conference at Orsay (France). Data for WW decay of Higgs boson from ATLAS have been made public. The talk is here. The data provide a clear excess in this channel and the rate is somewhat higher with respect to the Standard Model expectations of 1.4\pm 0.5 times. Gamma-Gamma channel remains the one going far better with respect possible clues of beyond standard model physics.

Of course, these are too feeble clues yet and may result into flukes turning Higgs boson of Standard Model the best fit for the data. Our hope is that further analysis will confirm these excesses.
