**Searching for the Higgs Boson**

by D. Rainwater

**Publisher**: arXiv 2007**Number of pages**: 81

**Description**:

I first review the Standard Model searches: what LEP did, prospects for Tevatron searches, the program planned for LHC, and some of the possibilities at a future ILC. I then cover in-depth what comes after a candidate discovery at LHC: the various measurements one has to make to determine exactly what the Higgs sector is. Finally, I discuss the MSSM extension to the Higgs sector.
