Search for rare and exotic Higgs Boson decay modes.

Junquan Tao on behalf of the CMS collaboration

The latest results in the search for rare and exotic Higgs boson decays in proton-proton collision events collected with the CMS detector at the LHC are presented. The searches are performed for several decay modes of Higgs boson including $\mathrm{H}\rightarrow{\rm X (X \rightarrow2\ell)\gamma}$ ($X= {\rm Z}, \gamma^* $ and $\ell={\rm e},\mu$), $\mathrm{H}\rightarrow{ \mu\mu / {\rm e}{\rm e}}$, invisible decays, lepton flavour violating decays and Higgs decay to light scalars or pseudo-scalars. No hint for new physics has been found from the analyzed results with the full LHC run-1 data collected during 2011 and 2012 at $\sqrt{s}=7-8$ TeV and with the run-2 data at $\sqrt{s}=13$ TeV collected during 2015 and 2016. Limits are set for all the searches which have been performed by CMS.
