Search for the standard model Higgs boson in pp¯ interactions with the decay mode H → W+W- → mu+ numu-nu at the DO experiment

Dale Morgan Johnston, University of Nebraska - Lincoln

Abstract

A search for the standard model Higgs boson in pp¯ collisions resulting in two muons and large missing transverse energy is presented. The analysis uses 4.2 fb-1 of integrated luminosity at a center-of-mass energy of s = 1.96 TeV collected between April 2002 and December 2008 with the D0 detector at the Fermilab Tevatron collider. No significant excess above the background estimation is observed and limits are derived on Higgs boson production. ^
