"The Race for the Higgs Boson
(A Tevatron Perspective)"

R. Craig Group , Fermilab
[Host: Craig Dukes]
I will begin by motivating the Higgs boson as an important piece of the Standard Model of particle physics that has yet to be experimentally verified. I will then give a short review of high energy colliders and particle detectors and will describe the challenges of discovering a Higgs boson with these machines. I will summarize the status at the Tevatron Collider at Fermilab and the Large Hadron Collider at CERN and portray the excitement at these two labs as the race to discover the Higgs boson tightens up.
