Higgs Mass Determination from Direct Reconstruction at a Linear e+e- Collider

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

We study the feasibility of a precise measurement of the mass of a 120 GeV MSM Higgs boson through direct reconstruction of ZH {yields} q{bar q}H events that would be achieved in a future e{sup +}e{sup -} linear collider operating at a center-of-mass energy of 500 GeV. Much effort has been put in a ''realistic simulation'' by including irreducible+reducible backgrounds, realistic detector effects and reconstruction procedures and sophisticated analysis tools involving Neural Networks and kinematical fitting. As a result, the Higgs mass is determined with a statistical accuracy of 50 MeV and the Z-Higgs Yukawa coupling measured to 0.7%, assuming ... continued below
