Description

Experiments at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) aim to address fundamental questions in particle physics such as the origin of mass for elementary particles, the matter/anti-matter asymmetry in the universe, the nature of Dark Matter, the state of matter in the early universe, etc. The ATLAS detector is one of the four major detectors being exploited at the LHC to shed some light on the questions. The Higgs boson is a hypothesized particle responsible for the elementary particle masses. In this talk, we will discuss the search strategies of the Higgs boson with the ATLAS detector at the LHC. In particular, we will present results based on the ATLAS data collected in 2010.
