We combine searches by the CDF and D0 Collaborations for the associated production of a Higgs boson with a W or Z boson and subsequent decay of the Higgs boson to a bottom-antibottom quark pair. The data, originating from Fermilab Tevatron pp collisions at √s = 1.96 TeV, correspond to integrated luminosities of up to 9.7 fb(-1). The searches are conducted for a Higgs boson with mass in the range 100-150 GeV/c(2). We observe an excess of events in the data compared with the background…

Evidence for a particle produced in association with weak bosons and decaying to a bottom-antibottom quark pair in higgs boson searches at the tevatron.
TLDR
An excess of events in the data is interpreted as evidence for the presence of a new particle consistent with the standard model Higgs boson, which is produced in association with a weak vector boson and decays to a bottom-antibottom quark pair.

Evidence for a particle produced in association with weak bosons and decaying to a bottom-antibottom quark pair in higgs boson searches at the tevatron.
TLDR
An excess of events in the data is interpreted as evidence for the presence of a new particle consistent with the standard model Higgs boson, which is produced in association with a weak vector boson and decays to a bottom-antibottom quark pair.
Combination of Tevatron searches for the standard model Higgs boson in the W+W- decay mode.
TLDR
These results exclude a standard model Higgs boson in the mass range 162-166 GeV at the 95% C.L.V. level, and resulting limits on Higgs Boson production are excluded.
Associated production of Higgs and weak bosons, with H-->bb-bar, at hadron colliders.
TLDR
It is shown that each of these colliders can potentially observe the standard Higgs boson in the intermediate-mass range, 80 GeV at the CERN Large Hadron Collider, and can potentially be used to observe the lightest Higgs scalar of the minimal supersymmetric model in a region of parameter space not accessible to CERN LEP II or the LHC.
Precise predictions for the Higgs-boson decay H ---> WW/ZZ ---> 4 leptons
The decay of the standard model Higgs boson into four leptons via a virtual $W$- or $Z$-boson pair is one of the most important decay modes in the Higgs-boson search at the Large Hadron Collider. We
