Standard Model Higgs Boson Searches at the Large Hadron Collider

  • Stefano Rosati
Conference paper


In this paper, a brief overview of the Standard Model Higgs boson discovery potential of the ATLAS [1] and CMS [2] experiments at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is given. A subset of the main search channels, and of the requirements they have posed to the design of the two experiments, will be described in more detail. The full discovery potential of the two experiments, together with the possibility they will have to assess the profile of an Higgs boson in case of its discovery, will be also described.
