Title: Feasibility of searches for a Higgs boson using H{yields}W{sup +}W{sup -}{yields}l{sup +}l{sup -} + missing p{sub T} and high p{sub T} jets at the Fermilab Tevatron

Abstract

The sensitivity of standard model Higgs boson searches at the Tevatron experiments with a mass 135<M{sub H}<190 GeV/c{sup 2} using the channel H{yields}W{sup +}W{sup -}{yields}l{sup +}l{sup -}pe{sub T}(l=e,{mu}) is discussed. Three new event selections involving Higgs in association with one or two high P{sub T} hadronic jets are discussed. Using leading order matrix elements and a conservative cut-based analysis a 95% confidence level exclusion on {sigma}xB(H{yields}W{sup +}W{sup -}), 1.6 times larger than that predicted by the standard model for M{sub H}=165 GeV/c{sup 2}, may be achieved with 5 fb{sup -1} of integrated luminosity. By combining these three event selections with the existing analysis, the sensitivity of CDF and D0 could improve significantly.
