  1. Abulencia, A. and others, Search for Higgs bosons decaying to b anti-b produced in association with W bosons in $p\barp$ collisions at $\sqrt s =$ 1.96-TeV, Phys. Rev. Lett., vol. 96 (2006), pp. 081803 [e081803] .

    We present a search for the standard model Higgs boson decaying into bb-bar and produced in association with W bosons in p anti-p collisions at s**(1/2) = 1.96 TeV. This search uses 320 pb-1 of the dataset accumulated by the upgraded Collider Detector at Fermilab. Events are selected that have a high-transverse momentum electron or muon, missing transverse energy, and two jets, at least one of which is consistent with the hadronization of a b quark. Both the number of events and the dijet mass distribution are consistent with standard model background expectations, and we set 95\% confidence level upper limits on the production cross section times branching ratio for the Higgs boson or any new particle with similar decay kinematics. These upper limits range from 10 pb for m_H = 110 GeV/c2 to 3 pb for m_H = 150 GeV/c2.
