Ways to detect a light Higgs boson at the LHC.

De Roeck, A. and Khoze, V. A. and Martin, A. D. and Orava, R. and Ryskin, M. G. (2002) 'Ways to detect a light Higgs boson at the LHC.', European physical journal C., 25 (3). pp. 391-403.

Abstract

We summarize the possible processes which may be used to search for a Higgs boson, of mass in the range 114–130 GeV, at the LHC. We discuss, in detail, two processes with rapidity gaps: exclusive Higgs production with tagged outgoing protons and production by Weak Boson Fusion, in each case taking H → b¯b as the signal. We make an extensive study of all possible b¯b backgrounds, and discuss the relevant experimental issues. We emphasize the special features of these signals, and of their background processes, and show that they could play an important role in identifying a light Higgs boson at the LHC.
