Abstract

The investigation of the properties of the Higgs boson, especially a test of the predicted linear dependence of the branching ratios on the mass of the final state is going to be an integral part of the physics program at colliders at the energy frontier for the foreseeable future. The large Higgs boson production cross section at a 3 TeV CLIC machine allows for a precision measurement of the Higgs branching ratios. The cross section times branching ratio of the decays H → bb̄, H → cc̄ and H→μ+μ- of a Standard Model Higgs boson with a mass of 120 GeV can be measured with a statistical uncertainty of 0. 23 %, 3. 1 % and 15 %, respectively, assuming an integrated luminosity of 2 ab-1.
