  • The authors present a search for the standard model Higgs boson decaying into b{bar b} and produced in association with W bosons in p{bar p} collisions at {radical}s = 1.96 TeV. This search uses 320 pb{sup -1} of the dataset accumulated by the upgraded Collider Detector at Fermilab. Events are selected that have a high-transverse momentum electron or muon, missing transverse energy, and two jets, at least one of which is consistent with the hadronization of a b quark. Both the number of events and the dijet mass distribution are consistent with standard model background expectations, and they set 95%more » confidence level upper limits on the production cross section times branching ratio for the Higgs boson or any new particle with similar decay kinematics. These upper limits range from 10 pb for m{sub H} = 110 GeV/c{sup 2} to 3 pb for m{sub H} = 150 GeV/c{sup 2}.« less

  • We search for Higgs bosons produced in association with a massive vector boson in 91{plus_minus}7 pb{sup {minus}1} of p{ovr p} collisions at {radical} (s) =1.8 TeV recorded by the Collider Detector at Fermilab. We assume the Higgs scalar H{sup 0} decays to a b{ovr b} pair with branching ratio {beta} , and we consider the hadronic decays of the vector boson V (W or Z ). Observations are consistent with background expectations. We place 95{percent} confidence level upper limits on {sigma}(p{ovr p}{r_arrow} H{sup 0}V){beta} as a function of the scalar mass (M{sub H{sup 0}}) over the range 70{lt}M{sub H{sup 0}}{lt}140more » GeV /c{sup 2} . When combined with an analysis of the case where V is a leptonically decaying W , these limits vary from 23thinspthinsppb at M{sub H{sup 0}}=70 GeV/c{sup 2} to 17thinspthinsppb at M{sub H{sup 0}}=140 GeV/c{sup 2} . {copyright} {ital 1998} {ital The American Physical Society }« less
  • We report results from a search for neutral Higgs bosons produced in association with b quarks using data recorded by the D0 experiment at the Fermilab Tevatron Collider and corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 7.3 fb{sup -1}. This production mode can be enhanced in several extensions of the standard model (SM) such as in its minimal supersymmetric extension (MSSM) at high tan{beta}. We search for Higgs bosons decaying to tau pairs with one tau decaying to a muon and neutrinos and the other to hadrons. The data are found to be consistent with SM expectations, and we set uppermore » limits on the cross section times branching ratio in the Higgs boson mass range from 90 to 320 GeV/c{sup 2}. We interpret our result in the MSSM parameter space, excluding tan{beta} values down to 25 for Higgs boson masses below 170 GeV/c{sup 2}.« less
