Abstract:

Since the discovery of the Higgs boson at the Large Hadron Collider in 2012, one of the primary goals of the LHC physics program has been to precisely measure the properties of the boson and the Higgs mechanism. The next major goal in this campaign is to directly measure the shape of the Higgs potential, which can be achieved by observing the production of Higgs boson pairs.  Additionally, the Higgs sector offers an excellent search channel for a variety of BSM models, many of which predict resonant Higgs boson pair production.  This talk presents the most cutting edge searches for Higgs boson pair production by the ATLAS Collaboration.
