The search for the Higgs boson is a major focus for the ATLAS and CMS experiments at the Large Hadron Collider. If the Higgs boson has a low mass (mH < 130 GeV) then its production in association with a top quark pair could be observed. Searching for t¯tH signals is very challenging due to a small signal cross section, large backgrounds, and a high number of jets in the final state. Here we review previous simulation studies of t¯tH(H → b¯b). We show the current status of the major background measurement, t¯t+jets. We outline recent improvements in theoretical predictions, Monte Carlo generators and jet reconstruction techniques that will enable us to perform this search in the near future.
