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

By David Hall

This thesis describes the stand-alone discovery and size of the Higgs boson in its decays to 2 W bosons utilizing the Run-I ATLAS dataset. this can be the main detailed dimension of gluon-fusion Higgs boson construction and is one of the most vital effects attained on the LHC. The thesis presents an incredibly transparent exposition on a classy research played through a wide staff of researchers. features of the research played via the writer are defined intimately; those contain 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 historical past to Higgs boson construction. the first motivation of the LHC used to be to turn out or disprove the life of the Higgs boson. In 2012, CERN introduced this discovery and the consequent ATLAS e-book contained 3 decay channels: gg, ZZ, and WW.
