Soft colour interactions and diffractive Higgs production
2004 (English)In: European Physical Journal C, ISSN 1434-6044, E-ISSN 1434-6052, Vol. 33, no Suppl. 1, 542-544 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
The topical subject of Higgs production in diffractive hard scattering events at the Tevatron and LHC is discussed. This has been proposed as a Higgs discovery channel with appealing experimental features. Predictions are obtained from the Soft Colour Interaction model, where rapidity gaps are created by a new soft interaction added to the normal hard scattering processes, implemented in the Monte Carlo event generator PYTHIA. A brief review of the successful application of the model to describe all CDF and DØ data on diffractive hard scattering, such as production of W/Z, dijets, beauty and $J/\psi$ is also given.
