An inclusive search for the Higgs boson in the four-lepton final state at CDF

Pages: 8

Abstract: An inclusive search for the standard model Higgs boson using the four-lepton final state in proton-antiproton collisions produced by the Tevatron at $\sqrt{s} = 1.96$ TeV is conducted. The data are recorded by the CDF II detector and correspond to an integrated luminosity of 9.7 /fb. Three distinct Higgs decay modes, namely $ZZ$, $WW$, and $\tau-\tau$, are simultaneously probed. Nine potential signal events are selected and found to be consistent with the background expectation. We set a 95% credibility limit on the production cross section times the branching ratio and subsequent decay to the four lepton final state for hypothetical Higgs boson masses between 120 GeV/$c^2$ and 300 GeV/$c^2$.
