Recherche du boson de Higgs standard léger dans le canal WH avec la statistique finale de l'expérience DØ au Tevatron

Abstract : Higgs mechanism, introduced in 1964, gives a satisfactory solution to a major problem of the standard model of elementary particles : the origin of the mass. It predicts the existence of the Higgs scalar boson, which mass is not defined by the theory and which has not been discovered experimentally yet (June 2012). The Tevatron, a hadron accelerator based at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory near Chicago, took data with its two multi-purpose detectors CDF and DØ since 1983 up to september 2011. Leaving about 10 fb-1 of statistics to analyze. Associated production of Higgs and vector gauge boson is the main search channel for a light standard Higgs boson. Using data collected by DØ, we are looking for this production mode taking advantage of sophisticated techniques to improve the signal sensitivity like b-jet identification and multivariate discriminants. In the end, a statistical approach allows us to set an upper limit on the ratio between the observed (resp. expected) Higgs production and its theoretical cross section. The results obtained in the WH channel using 9.7 fb-1 at DØ is 3;15 (resp. 3.96) for a 115 GeV/c2 Higgs boson.
