Higgs boson production in peripheral heavy-ion collisions. Coherent double-pomeron exchange


Journal Article

Higgs boson production by coherent double-pomeron exchange in peripheral nuclear collisions at energies of several TeV per nucleon is calculated. It is shown that a trigger on quasi-elastic nuclear collisions strongly suppresses the cross section. The analogous two-photon process is predicted to dominate for collisions of heavy nuclei. © 1991.
