Abstract
This Report summarises the results of the activities in the period 20142016 of the LHC Higgs Cross Section Working Group.The main goal of the working group was to present the stateoftheart of Higgs Physics at the LHC, integrating all new results that have appeared in the last few years. The first part compiles the most uptodate predictions of Higgsboson production cross sections and decay branching ratios, parton distribution functions, and offshell Higgs production and Higgs interference effects. The second part discusses the recent progress in Higgs effective field theory predictions, followed by the third part on pseudoobservables, simplified template cross section and fiducial cross section measurements, which give the baseline framework for Higgs property measurements. The fourth part deals with the beyond the Standard Model predictions of various benchmark scenarios of Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model, extended scalar sector, NexttoMinimal Supersymmetric Standard Model and exotic Higgs decays. This report follows the first working group report "Handbook of LHC Higgs Cross Sections: 1.~Inclusive Observables" (CERN2011002) and the second working group report "Handbook of LHC Higgs Cross Sections: 2.~Differential Distributions" (CERN2012002) and the third working group report "Handbook of LHC Higgs Cross Sections: 3.~Higgs properties" (CERN2013004). The current report serves as the baseline reference for Higgs physics in LHC RUN2 and beyond.
