Low Mass Higgs @ LHC Why low mass? Production characteristics Decay characteristics Overview of search strategies or who does what and how does it hang together. Arguments for a “low mass” Higgs. 114 < m h < 200 @95%CL in SM LEP saw enhancement at 115 GeV. SUSY favors m h <135GeV.

M. Spira et al.
IVB fusionSM Higgs at LHC: ~10-40pb
=> Always gives WW
…SM Higgs Decays
WW favored over ZZ by a factor 4-50 !!!
=> Only di-photon, WW, and ZZ decays matter
