In-depth description of several important aspects of Higgs boson searches, beyond the level of detail provided in the published articles
Didactical description, explaining the experimental challenges faced and the strategies used to overcome them
Drawn from firsthand experience of the author
This book describes the searches that lead to the discovery of a Higgs boson performed at CMS, one of the two main experiments at the CERN LHC. After an overview of the theory and of the CMS experiment, all search channels are described, with emphasis on the ones with the best sensitivity. The statistical methodology used to analyse and the outcomes of the searches and the discovery results are then presented in detail.
