The three regions of background are present here: top-like events on the far left, Z+ jet-like events in the middle and Higgs-like events on the far right. Higgs boson events are expected to be extremely rare at the Tevatron, so seeing evidence for the Higgs production requires keeping and analyzing every promising event. A team at CDF has worked to implement new tools aimed to do just that. The CDF physicists searched for Higgs bosons produced along with Z bosons,…
