The search for the Standard Model Higgs boson in proton-antiproton collisions
at 1.96 TeV performed by CDF and D0 collaborations at the Tevatron collider is
reported in this paper. The Higgs candidate events are reconstructed using
different final states in order to optimize the sensitivity in the full range
of the Higgs mass. The presented results use different statistical samples
collected by the Tevatron up to 5.9 1/fb. Combining the most updated limits
provided by the two experiments for all the final states analysed, the Standard
Model Higgs boson is excluded at 95% C.L. in the mass range 158 - 175 GeV/c^2,
in good agreement with the prediction for the analysed data sample.

    ABSTRACT: In this article two-loop QED corrections to the muon decay and corrections of order αs2 to the semileptonic decay of the bottom quark are considered. We compute the imaginary part of the four-loop diagrams contributing to the corresponding fermion propagator in the limit of small external momentum. The on-shell condition is obtained with the help of a conformal mapping and Padé approximation. Via this method we confirm the existing results by an independent calculation.

    ABSTRACT: We re-examine the lower bound on the mass of the Higgs boson, Mh, from Standard Model vaccum stability including next-to-leading-log radiative corrections. This amounts to work with the full one-loop effective potential, V(θ), improved by two-loop RGE, and allows to keep control of the scale invariance of V in a wide range of the θ-field. Our results show that the bound is (10 GeV) less stringent than in previous estimates. In addition we perform a detailed comparison between the SM lower bounds on Mh and the supersymmetric upper bounds on it. It turns out that depending on the actual value of the top mass, Mt, the eventually measured Higgs mass can discard the pure SM, the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model or both.
