Discovery and measurement of the Higgs boson in the WW decay channel

Abstract:

In the Standard Model of particle physics, the non-zero masses of the W and Z bosons and the fermions are generated through interactions with the Higgs field, excitations of which correspond to Higgs bosons. Thus, the experimental discovery of the Higgs boson is of prime importance to physics, and would confirm our understanding of fundamental mass generation.

This thesis describes a search for the gg → H → WW → lνlν process of Higgs boson production and d...
