Detecting the heavy Higgs boson at the SSC

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Detection of a heavy Higgs boson (2M/sub z/ < M/sub H/ < 1 TeV) is considered. The production mechanisms and backgrounds are discussed. Their implementation in the PYTHIA and ISAJET Monte Carlo programs are checked. The decay modes H ..-->.. ZZ ..-->.. llll and H ..-->.. ZZ ..-->.. llvv are discussed in detail. The signal/background is evaluated and some relevant detector parameters are specified. Some remarks are also made concerning the requirements imposed on detectors by the decay mode H ..-->.. WW ..-->.. lv + jets. Experimental signatures for models in which there is no Higgs boson of mass less ... continued below
