Abstract

We present a search for the standard model Higgs boson in HWW(*) decays with e+e-, e±µ, and µ+µ- final states in p collisions at a center-of-mass energy of =1.96 TeV. The data, collected from April 2002 to June 2004 with the D0 detector, correspond to an integrated luminosity of 300–325 pb-1, depending on the final state. The number of events observed is consistent with the expectation from backgrounds. Limits from the combination of all three channels on the Higgs boson production cross section times branching ratio ×BR(HWW(*)) are presented.

Journal or Publication Title: Physical Review Letters
Additional Information: Fox worked on the electron identification for the W boson decay. At the time of publication this measurement produced the best limit on the production cross-section for a Higgs boson on the 150-170 GeV mass range. RAE_import_type : Journal article RAE_uoa_type : Physics
