Prospects for a low-mass Higgs boson

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The SU(2){sub L} x U(1){sub Y} gauge theory of the electroweak interactions has enjoyed tremendous success over the past four decades, accurately predicting, or at least accommodating, all high-energy collider data. The gauge group must be broken somehow to U(1){sub EM}, because the unbroken theory predicts massless gauge bosons and massless fermions. The Standard Model incorporates a minimal Higgs sector with a single complex doublet field, to break the symmetry spontaneously, but it is not the only possibility. SUSY Higgses, general two-Higgs-doublet models, and other ideas may prove to model nature better than the minimal model. Many of these models, ... continued below

Description

The SU(2){sub L} x U(1){sub Y} gauge theory of the electroweak interactions has enjoyed tremendous success over the past four decades, accurately predicting, or at least accommodating, all high-energy collider data. The gauge group must be broken somehow to U(1){sub EM}, because the unbroken theory predicts massless gauge bosons and massless fermions. The Standard Model incorporates a minimal Higgs sector with a single complex doublet field, to break the symmetry spontaneously, but it is not the only possibility. SUSY Higgses, general two-Higgs-doublet models, and other ideas may prove to model nature better than the minimal model. Many of these models, and even the SM, prefer a light Higgs boson, with a mass between the LEP limit of 114.4 GeV and 200 GeV. The Constrained MSSM favors masses under 120 GeV. A survey of the experimental work so far at LEP and the Tevatron, with estimations of the sensitivity of the upcoming LHC experiments is provided.
