Higgs

The much awaited $9 Billion papers on the Higgs Boson have been published. What do they really tell us?

Notice the broken yellow lines emerging out of the detector. Those are photon lines. Actually the broken line is a way to represent the fact that photons are invisible and not caught in the tracker. Then they are detected in the electromagnetic calorimeter, where green lines represent energy dumps.

To be proved wrong has never felt so good! To be a part of the historic moment is awesome!

The web has been buzzing with the probable discovery of the Higgs Boson and the upcoming CERN press conference has generated a lot of interest. We aim to caution you – tread lightly on Higgs discovery news, as there isn’t enough data yet to make that claim. Here’s a thought…

ICHEP2012

The Higgs boson search status will be announced in the upcoming CERN conference to be held in Geneva on the 4th of July. Incidentally, ICHEP, one of the biggest high energy conferences, is also supposed to start on the same day.

The Higgs Boson search has advanced from where it was in December, but it has still not attained the position of a discovery. The LHC simply doesn’t have enough data to provide the tag of a ‘discovery’ to the Higgs particle. Don’t believe the rumors, here’s the real deal.

The Tevatron data concludes roughly what the LHC has concluded for the low mass range. It seems that the Higgs is a low-mass Higgs, with a mass of about 125 GeV.

The Higgs search results became more promising with the earlier data revealing more stuff than what it had already revealed. An increase of the confidence level to 4.3-sigma is welcome news! Inching towards the magical 5-sigma…
