Main Question or Discussion Point


Cern's Accelerator and Brookhaven's Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider labs are now capable of generating and detecting the Higgs Boson resonance.

The nuclear reaction is as follows:
Pu244(39 Tev) + Au197 -> CMS(39 Tev) -> H115.6 GeV(1 Tev) + E

Ecms = (160 GeV/nucleon)* 244 nucleons = 39 Tev

Higgs Decays:
H115.6 Gev(1 Tev) -> Z93 Gev + Z93 Gev

H115.6 Gev(1 Tev) -> W+82 Gev + W-82 Gev

The energy available for producing new matter, is about 3.5 Tev.

A 40 Tev cms (center-of-mass) energy is available at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider undergoing final preparations at Brookhaven.

Evidence for the transition from a hadron phase (baryons and mesons) into a QGP phase was expected to consist of:

(1) an enhanced production of strange mesons

(2) a decrease in the production of heavy psi mesons (each consisting of a charm and anti-charm quarks)

(3) an increase in the creation of energetic photons and lepton-anti-lepton pairs.

(indirect) evidence (at least of types 1 and 2) has now turned up in the CERN data.

Interesting... if true (which I seriously doubt).

1) The tevatron is not at CERN but at Fermilab.
2) The large CERN accelerator is down pending installment of LHC.
3) No mention of H is made on the BNL site.
4) No mention of H is made on physicsweb.

Can you provide a clear link to the results? preprint / experimental results-page will do...

It is clear he refers to the preliminary Aleph results, three years old by now. They are in the first quoted URL.
