Prospects for Higgs Bosons at DØ

Conference paper


The Higgs mechanism [1] plays a central role in breaking of the electroweak symmetry by providing a mass to the vector bosons W and Z, without violating the local gauge invariance. The Standard Model requires a single neutral scalar particle. Extensions to the Standard Model can introduce additional Higgs particles. There is evidence from both theoretical considerations and experimental results which imply that the mass of the Standard Model Higgs is below 200 GeV [2–4]. This possibility gives a strong impetus to search for the Higgs bosons at the Tevatron.
