Abstract [en]

We present a search for pair production of doubly charged Higgs bosons in the processes q (q) over bar -> H(++)H(--) decaying through H(+/-+/-) ->tau(+/-)tau(+/-), mu(+/-)tau(+/-), mu(+/-)mu(+/-). The search is performed in p (p) over bar collisions at a center-of-mass energy of root s = 1:96 TeV using an integrated luminosity of up to 7:0 fb(-1) collected by the D0 experiment at the Fermilab Tevatron Collider. The results are used to set 95% C. L. limits on the pair production cross section of doubly charged Higgs bosons and on their mass for different H(+/-+/-) branching fractions. Models predicting different H(+/-+/-) decays are investigated. Assuming B(H(+/-+/-) -> tau(+/-)tau(+/-)) = 1 yields an observed (expected) lower limit on the mass of a left- handed H(L)(+/-+/-) boson of 128 (116) GeV and assuming B(H(+/-+/-) -> mu(+/-)tau(+/-)) = 1 the corresponding limits are 144 (149) GeV. In a model with B(H(+/-+/-) -> tau +/-tau(+/-) B(H(+/-+/-) -> mu(+/-)tau(+/-)) = B(H(+/-+/-) -> mu(+/-)mu(+/-) ) 1/3, we obtain M(H(L)(+/-+/-)) > 130 (138) GeV.
