Search for the Higgs boson at the Tevatron

Mardi 31 mars 2009, à 16h15

The Higgs boson is the only particle of the standard model which has not been discovered yet, but it might be the most important one. Indeed, it is through the Higgs mechanism that all massive particles are expected to acquire their mass. Hence the search for the Higgs boson has been one of the major acxtivity of Elementary Particle Physicists during this last decade. In this seminar we will introduce the physics of the Higgs boson and report on the experimental searches which are currently being done at the Tevatron by the D0 experiment, and on the combined results obtained by CDF and D0. We have now new constraints on the Higgs bosons, and this is the first time since the LEP era. We will conclude on the prospects of Higgs discovery in the coming years.
