The search for the Higgs Boson in the four-jet channel at LEP

Abstract

The four-jet channel played an important role in the search for the Higgs boson at LEP during its second phase at centre-of-mass energies above the WW threshold, from 1996 until 2000. In an outstanding last year of running, LEP delivered a substantial integrated luminosity above 206 GeV, and first hints of a Higgs boson with mass 115 GeV/c2 might have been observed. Unfortunately this search could not reach a definite conclusion. A review of the salient features of the analysis in the four-jet channel and the robustness of the exciting results in this topology in 2000 is given.
