    Abstract

    © 2015 World Scientific Publishing Company. We review the techniques and results of the searches for the Higgs boson performed by the two Tevatron collaborations, CDF and DØ. The Higgs boson predicted by the Standard Model was sought in the mass range 90 GeV < mH < 200 GeV in all main production modes at the Tevatron: gluon{gluon fusion, WH and ZH associated production, vector boson fusion, and tt¯H production, and in five main decay modes: H → bb¯, H → τ+τ-, H → WW(∗), H → ZZ(∗) and H → γγ. An excess of events was seen in the H → bb¯ searches consistent with a Standard Model Higgs boson with a mass in the range 115 GeV < mH < 135 GeV. Assuming a Higgs boson mass of mH = 125 GeV, studies of Higgs boson properties were performed, including measurements of the product of the cross section times the branching ratio in various production and decay modes, constraints on Higgs boson couplings to fermions and vector bosons, and tests of spin and parity. We also summarize the results of searches for supersymmetric Higgs bosons, and Higgs bosons in other extensions of the Standard Model.
