Search for a Standard Model Higgs Boson in WH→ℓvbb̅ in pp̅ Collisions at sqrt[s] =1.96 TeV

Journal Article (Academic article)

We present a search for a standard model Higgs boson produced in association with a W boson using 2.7  fb-1 of integrated luminosity of pp̅ collision data taken at sqrt[s]=1.96  TeV. Limits on the Higgs boson production rate are obtained for masses between 100 and 150  GeV/c2. Through the use of multivariate techniques, the analysis achieves an observed (expected) 95% confidence level upper limit of 5.6 (4.8) times the theoretically expected production cross section for a standard model Higgs boson with a mass of 115  GeV/c2.
