World Scientific


457 pages



Physicists recount the research that began about 50 years ago for the mechanism that breaks the electroweak symmetry and generates the masses of all known sub-atomic particles. Their topics include the Higgs boson in the Standard Model, searches for the Standard Model Higgs boson at the Tevatron Collider, observation of the diphoton decay of the Higgs boson and measurements of its properties, evidence that the Higgs boson decays to lambda leptons, Higgs boson search in the WW to lvqq final state, and Higgs combination and properties of the Higgs boson.
