Experimental Searches for the Higgs Particle in High Energy Collisions

  • Abraham Seiden
Part of the Ettore Majorana International Science Series book series (EMISS, volume 50)


We look at the potential for discovery of the Higgs Particle at the SSC. As a function of the Higgs mass, different search strategies will be necessary, leading to different experimental challenges. We look at some of these experimental issues.
