A search for the Standard Model Higgs boson via its decay to tau leptons and W bosons at the ATLAS detector

Abstract:

Understanding the origin or Electroweak symmetry breaking within the Standard Model was a key motivation for the construction of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) experiment at CERN. This thesis presents a search for evidence of Higgs boson production in the 4.7 fb−1 of collision data recorded at a centre-of-mass energy of 7 TeV at the ATLAS detector during 2011.

This search is focused on signal events in which a Higgs boson is produced in the mass range 100 < mH < 180 GeV/c2 an...
