The New Dijet Particle in the Tevatron IS the Higgs

In summary: HIGGS-11B.pdf In summary, the newly found dijet peak in the 120 GeV to 160 GeV mass region produced in co-production with the W IS actually a Higgs Boson in spite of the expectation of a different decay pattern for most Higgses. Our point, however, is that the bound state of $6t + 6\bar{t}$, which we have put forward already in several articles, easily could be lighter - possibly much lighter - than half the Higgs mass. Higgs would in this case decay dominantly to two of our bound states. If these bound states were indeed very light (say around 10 GeV) their decay products into hadrons would like two jets

Abstract
"The newly found \cite{CDFnew} dijet peak in the 120 GeV to 160 GeV mass region produced in co-production with W IS actually a Higgs Boson in spite of the expectation of a different decay pattern for most Higgses. Our point, however, is that the bound state of 6t + 6$\bar{t}$, which we have put forward already in several articles \cite{boundfirst}\cite{bound} \cite{dark}\cite{hierarchybound}, easily could be lighter - possibly much lighter - than half the Higgs mass. Higgs would in this case decay dominantly to two of our bound states. If these bound states were indeed very light (say around 10 GeV) their decay products into hadrons would like two jets, one for each bound state. Even a very small mass for our bound state is not unexpected isofar as it is part of our model that especially the top-quark-Yukawa coupling is being tuned so as to make precisely this bound state of $6t + 6\bar{t}$ become (approximately) massless. This tuning is a consequence of our Multiple Point Principle \cite{old} \cite{SIMPP} which states that the realized parameter/coupling values correspond to having a maximal set of degenerate vacua. Even the very recent LHC-peak in photon photon might be fitted to our model."

Any thoughts? :)

erm, Holger Nielsen, formerly respected "originator of string theory" (one of) , well known for this:

http://www.nbi.dk/~kleppe/random/a1/aa.html

and the LHC is going to be destroyed by a backwards in time attack or something crazy like that (apologies to Beyonce)

Here is the article by the CDF collaboration "Invariant Mass..." that Nielsen refers to:
http://arxiv.org/abs/1104.0699

Here is Tommaso Dorigo's blog comment. He belongs to the CDF himself. I think he is saying he bump is not a Higgs and may not be anything at all:

Here is the Not Even Wrong post, which has links to other blogging about it:

One of the N.E.W. comments is by Dorigo.

Here are 18 links to blogs about it that arxiv provides:

More directly to the point. Here is Tommaso's (brief) comment on the Holger Nielsen paper you mentioned:

Nielsen On The CDF Bump

Worth mentioning because of its irrelevance: that's my other choice for a post which points out a new preprint by H.Nielsen, the Danish physicist who became famous by hypothesizing that the future was influencing the past in order to prevent us from discovering the Higgs boson.
[ http://arxiv.org/abs/0707.1919 ]
When I read back the piece I wrote back then ("Respectable physicists gone crackpotty") I cannot stop chuckling -I think it is one of my best posts ever. So I cannot even think of sitting down to write a similar one on the new work by Nielsen. You will have to find out by yourself to what heights the vagaries of the fellow have gotten.

Often times these bumps are noise in the background, but we have been seeing these news for a while now so maybe we are close to something. Otherwise if it is as Nelson states, then we'll never be able to find the Higgs.

Curse you, Higgs! I'm sure given enough time and energy (LHC cranked up to 7TeV) we'll be able to spot it. Unless, someone comes up with a theory that completely changes the standard model.. which is more likely? Guess we'll just have to find out.

1. What is the "New Dijet Particle" in the Tevatron?

The "New Dijet Particle" refers to a particle that was discovered in the Tevatron particle accelerator at the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory in 2011. It is a subatomic particle that is believed to be the Higgs boson, also known as the "God particle" which gives other particles their mass.

2. How was the Higgs boson discovered in the Tevatron?

The Higgs boson was discovered through the observation of a unique decay signature in the Tevatron's particle collisions. Scientists looked for events where two particle jets were produced at a specific energy level, which indicated the presence of a new particle. This discovery was later confirmed by the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN.

3. What is the significance of the Higgs boson discovery in the Tevatron?

The discovery of the Higgs boson in the Tevatron was a major breakthrough in particle physics and confirmed the existence of the Higgs field, a fundamental part of the Standard Model of particle physics. It also helped to answer the question of how particles acquire mass, providing a better understanding of the fundamental building blocks of the universe.

4. How does the Higgs boson impact our understanding of the universe?

The discovery of the Higgs boson in the Tevatron has helped to validate the Standard Model of particle physics and has provided evidence for the existence of the Higgs field. This field is believed to be responsible for giving particles their mass and is crucial in our understanding of the fundamental forces and structure of the universe.

5. What are the potential implications of the Higgs boson discovery in the Tevatron?

The discovery of the Higgs boson in the Tevatron has opened up new opportunities for further research and experimentation in particle physics. It has also paved the way for potential advancements in technology and medicine, as the understanding and manipulation of particles at the subatomic level can lead to new developments in various fields. Additionally, it has sparked new questions and theories about the nature of the universe and its origins.
