An inclusive search for the Standard Model Higgs boson in the dimuon decay channel is presented. The search utilizes 20.7 fb−1 of proton-proton collision data at a center-of-mass energy of √s = 8 TeV recorded by the ATLAS detector in 2012. No evidence of a signal is seen, therefore upper limits are set on σ(pp → H + X) × Γ(H → μ+μ−) as a function of the Higgs boson mass.The observed (expected) limit at the 95 % CL for the Higgs boson with a mass of 125 GeV is 9.8 (8.2) times the Standard Model prediction.
