Hi, I've been looking at ways to create Higgs bosons in lepton colliders, mostly muon colliders. I have a question on how one would be certain that it is actually the Higgs that has been found. The main channel that is going to be used seems to be the so-called s-channel, where [tex]\mu^+ + \mu^- \rightarrow H \rightarrow b + anti~b [/tex] Is the following reasoning correct? The H will essentially be at rest at the collision point. When it decays, the b-quarks will create two jets. Some tracks in the tracking chamber will have kinks, indicating the decay of a b-hadron, which would "mark" the event as interresting. But what about other processes giving similair events? Could someone give a few examples? The quantities of information gathered in particle physics give so many degrees of freedom that I can't really get rid of the feeling that just about any theory could be confirmed, based on the data. Now I don't believe that's the case, I believe I need to fill in the gaps in my understanding. Some help from you people would be very nice!
