The ALEPH search for the Standard Model Higgs boson in the year 2000 revealed an excess of signal-like events, consistent with a signal hypothesis mh=115 GeV/c2. Here we present the first results after the analysis of all of the data collected during the year 2000, at collision energies up to 209 GeV, and which were published in November 2000.

HOW ROBUST IS THE RESULT OF THE STANDARD MODEL HIGGS BOSON SEARCH AT LEP? a

An excess of signal-like events above the expected background, corresponding to approximately three standard deviations, was observed in the search for the standard model Higgs boson at LEP in 2000.

Lamb's Balance

We show how the variations on nuclear stability at the drip lines can be connected to the bosonic sector of electroweak theory. This connection hints strongly towards the existence of a non minimal

During the run in the year 2000, with data collected at collision energies up to 209 GeV, the LEP experiments have possibly unearthed the first evidence of a Higgs boson signal at m h ≈ 115 GeV/c 2.
