Discovery and Measurement of the Higgs Boson in the WW Decay by David Hall

By David Hall

This thesis describes the stand-alone discovery and dimension of the Higgs boson in its decays to 2 W bosons utilizing the Run-I ATLAS dataset. this is often the main specific dimension of gluon-fusion Higgs boson construction and is one of the most vital effects attained on the LHC. The thesis offers an incredibly transparent exposition on a sophisticated research played via a wide workforce of researchers. elements of the research played through the writer are defined intimately; those comprise new equipment for comparing uncertainties at the jet binning utilized in the research and for estimating the historical past as a result of linked construction of a W boson and an off-shell photon. The thesis additionally describes a size of the WW go part, an important history to Higgs boson creation. the first motivation of the LHC was once to end up or disprove the lifestyles of the Higgs boson. In 2012, CERN introduced this discovery and the ensuing ATLAS ebook contained 3 decay channels: gg, ZZ, and WW.
