Title: Search for Multiphoton Signatures of a Higgs Boson

Abstract

In this thesis we describe a search for a fermiophobic Higgs boson in 3γ+X events. The study has been performed on 0.83 fb -1 of data collected with the D0 detector that resides at one of the interaction regions of the Tevatron collider, the world's highest energy accelerator. This study was motivated by a fairly recent phenomenological paper [33] where it was noticed that in certain class of models (2HDM Type I and THM) the multi-photon final states like this one become detectable at the luminosity that has been collected by the D0 experiment by 2006. The mechanism that permits such final state becomes available when the conventional higgs production mechanism (higgs strahlung) are suppressed. This leads to the fact that Higgs boson with mass (m hf < 90 GeV/c 2) lower than the current limit has not been excluded.
