CDF’s full dataset consists of information from 10 inverse femtobarns. In 2003, Higgs boson searches at the Tevatron were merely sparks in the eyes of physicists at CDF and DZero. After two years of slow running, the Tevatron had delivered a dataset only half as large as the previous Tevatron run in the 1990s. The earlier dataset yielded the discovery of the top quark. While the data collected by 2003 produced one million W bosons, if the Higgs boson really…
