1 Low Mass Standard Model Higgs Boson Searches at the Tevatron Andrew Mehta Physics at LHC, Split, Croatia, September 27th 2008 On behalf of the CDF and D0 Collaborations

2 2 Tevatron Analyses in this talk use fb -1 per experiment Tevatron is running really well : Expect 6-8 fb -1 datasets by end of possibly run in /09/08Andrew Mehta Data analysed with 2 multipurpose detectors CDF and D0: EM +had calorimeters for e +jet id Muon detectors Silicon vertex detectors for b tagging Lumi per experiment

4 4 The Challenge Higgs production is very rare. Careful analysis to separate signal from background. 1. Trigger High p T e, triggers MET + Jets triggers Track + MET + Ecal -trigger 2. Reconstruct final state Leptons Efficient b-tagging Good jet resolution MET reconstruction 3. Separate signal and background Measure backgrounds Advanced analysis tools to separate signal from background (NN, ME, BDT ) 27/09/08Andrew Mehta

5 5 Identification of b-quarks (b-tagging) Jet-Flavor Separator Neural Network Output b-tag = Identified 2nd vertex Most sensitive channels have H bb Silicon detectors used to find secondary vertices Efficiency ~ % Fake rate (mistags) typically % D0 uses Neural Network tagger based on b-lifetime information CDF utilizes secondary vertex and Jet Probability algorithms + additional NN flavor separator Use either single tag or looser double tag CDF D0 b-likec/l-like CDF 27/09/08Andrew Mehta

15 15 Tevatron Combination Updated Tevatron combination in progress! - Status of April 9th /09/08Andrew Mehta

16 16 Conclusions Higgs physics at the Tevatron is getting exciting! Low mass region has large backgrounds due to the dominant decay to b quarks Expected limit should fall below ~ 3 x SM for m H =115 GeV/c 2 in the next Tevatron combination Additional improvements actively in progress -Further extending signal acceptance for leptons and b tagging -Improved jet resolution -Extended b-tagging and flavour separators Expect 2-3 times current analyzed lumi (more if we run in 2010) Details on each analysis is available at: CDF: D0: 27/09/08Andrew Mehta
