ATLAS measurement of the Higgs boson decay to tau-leptons

After the Higgs boson discovery by the ATLAS and CMS experiments in 2012, the measurements focus on the determining its properties. According to the Standard model, one of Higgs boson remarkable features is that the couplings to fermions are proportional to their mass. The Higgs boson decay into a pair of tau-leptons thus represents the 2nd most common fermionic decay mode and it is the most favoured one in terms of the low background. The strategies of H->tau+tau measument will be described, including the mass reconstruction. The ATLAS Run-1 results will be presented and the challenges of the analysis in Run-2 will be discussed.
