Title: Run II extrapolation of CDF results on a search for Higgs Bosons produced in Aassociation with a Vector Boson through p pbar {right arrow} V + H{superscript 0} (V = W,Z)

Abstract

CDF has recently published [1] a search for Higgs bosons produced in association with vector bosons in 91 ± 7 pb -1 of Run I data. Observations are consistent with background expectation. 95% confidence level upper limits are set as a function of the Higgs mass on {sigma}(p{anti p} {yields} H 0 V )·{beta}, with {beta} the branching ratio of the Higgs decays to b{anti b} and V = W; Z. The sensitivity of the search is limited by statistics to a cross section approximately two orders of magnitude larger than the predicted cross section for standard model Higgs production. In this paper we extrapolate the results from [1] to the next Tevatron Run II where we hope for an approximately twenty-fold increase in the total integrated luminosity as well as a significant improvement in the total acceptances.
