  • We present a search for a standard model Higgs boson decaying to two W bosons that decay to leptons using the full data set collected with the CDF II detector in s√=1.96 TeV pp¯ collisions at the Fermilab Tevatron, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 9.7 fb−1. We obtain no evidence for production of a standard model Higgs boson with mass between 110 and 200 GeV/c2, and place upper limits on the production cross section within this range. We exclude standard model Higgs boson production… CONTINUE READING
