A basic introduction to the physics of the Standard Model Higgs boson is given. We discuss Higgs boson production in $e^+e^-$ and hadronic collisions and survey search techniques at future accelerators. The Higgs bosons of the minimal SUSY model are briefly considered. Indirect limits from triviality arguments, vacuum stability and precision measurements at LEP are also presented.

Higgs underproduction at the LHC

We show that production of the Higgs boson through gluon-fusion may be suppressed in the presence of colored scalars. Substantial destructive interference between the top-quark diagrams and colored

DIRAC'S OBSERVABLES FOR THE SU(3)×SU(2)×U(1) STANDARD MODEL

The missing complete Hamiltonian treatment of the standard SU(3) × SU(2) × U(1) model with Grassmann-valued fermion fields in the Higgs phase is given. We bypass the complications of the Hamiltonian

Introduction To The Symmetry Breaking Sector

The basic ingredients of the Spontaneous Symmetry Breaking Phenomenon and of the Higgs Mechanism are reviewed in these lectures of pedagogical character. Some relevant topics related with the

Investigation of Hadronic Higgs Decays at CLIC at 350 GeV & Scintillator Studies for a Highly Granular Calorimeter

This work analyzes Monte Carlo events from the Compact Linear Collider to assess the uncertainties of Higgs hadronic decays. After a multivariate event selection, a likelihood fit is performed on the

Systematic and Experimental Uncertainties in the Search for Neutral MSSM Higgs Bosons Decaying to Two Tau Leptons

For every physics measurement it is essential to precisely know its uncertainty. At the search for neutral MSSM Higgs bosons the decay channel to two tau leptons plays a major role. For this channel

Performance of the ATLAS forward calorimeter and search for the invisible Higgs via vector boson fusion at ATLAS

The ATLAS detector will examine proton-proton collisions at 14 TeV provided by CERN's Large Hadron Collider (LHC). ATLAS is a general purpose detector with tracking, calorimetry and a large muon
