In this paper we report on the legacy of Higgs boson searches at LEP. Specifically, the results of the statistical combination of the searches carried out by the ALEPH, DELPHI, L3 and OPAL experiments are presented. In the search for the Standard Model (SM) Higgs boson, a signal with mh < 114.4 GeV/c2 has been excluded at the 95% confidence level (CL) or higher. The LEP collaborations also carried out extensive searches for Higgs particles predicted by many scenarios beyond the Standard Model…

Search for the Higgs boson via the H → b¯b decay mode, in the boosted regime on the ATLAS experiment

This thesis presents details of the search for the Standard Model Higgs boson, in the low mass region (100 ≤MH < 150 GeV), with the ATLAS detector at CERN. In this range, a Higgs boson may be

At Least a Higgs Boson

On July 4th, 2012 the ATLAS and CMS collaborations at CERN’s Large Hadronic Collider reported the observation of a new particle with properties consistent with those expected from the SM Higgs (Aad

Search for the Standard Model Higgs boson produced by vector boson fusion and decaying to beauty quarks with the ATLAS detector.

The Higgs Boson has been discovered in 2012 by the ATLAS and the CMS collaborations. Studying its properties and checking if they agree with the Standard Model predictions constitute pivotal topics

Higgs production in association with top quarks at the LHC

Since it has been found that the MadGraph Monte Carlo generator offers superior flavour-matching capability as compared to Alpgen, the suitability of MadGraph for the generation of ttb¯ ¯b events

SEARCH FOR HADRONIC RESONANCES IN MULTIJET FINAL STATES WITH THE CDF DETECTOR

This thesis describes a search for a new hadronic resonance in 3.2 fb{sup -1} of data using the Collider Detector at Fermilab. The Fermilab Tevatron accelerator collides beams of protons and

Improving Higgs Sensitivity at CDF by Introducing New Muon Triggers

A search for Standard Model Higgs boson production in the H {yields} WW {yields} {ell}{nu}jj channel using 5.7 fb{sup -1} of CDF II data is presented. The search is performed using a matrix element

Performance and robustness studies of the trigger for the ATLAS experiment

The ATLAS detector is one of two general-purpose particle detectors that will soon begin taking data at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN. It is designed to explore a new energy frontier and

Study on the Impact of Cross-Talk in the ATLAS Electromagnetic Calorimeter on the Signal Prediction in the Strip Layer

The Liquid Argon (LAr) Calorimeters play a central role in the ATLAS detector at the LHC. They measure electrons and photons with high resolution and detect hadronic jets and missing energy

The New Dijet Particle in the Tevatron IS the Higgs

The newly found \cite{CDFnew} dijet peak in the 120 GeV to 160 GeV mass region produced in co-production with W IS actually a Higgs Boson in spite of the expectation of a different decay pattern for
