Title: Seeking the origin of mass: Higgs searches at Colliders
Abstract: The Higgs boson could be the final piece of the puzzle in the Standard Model of particle physics and its discovery may be the key to understanding the origin of mass. Experiments at the Tevatron and the LHC are actively looking for signs of this elusive particle and their searches are rapidly evolving. This presentation will cover the newest results from Higgs searches at both the Tevatron and the LHC. I will also discuss the prospects for these searches as well as the interplay of the expanding LHC and Tevatron searches with a broad range of precision electroweak measurements.
Refreshments will be served at 2:30pm in SES 2620 High Bay Conference Room
