The Higgs mechanism accommodates the observed breaking of electroweak
symmetry in the standard model. In addition to generating masses for the
electroweak W and Z bosons, as well as for fermions, the theory predicts a
new scalar Higgs boson with well-determined couplings, but unknown mass.
Confirmation of the existence and properties of the Higgs boson would be a
key step in elucidating the origins of electroweak symmetry breaking.
In this talk I will introduce the DZero detector focusing on the trigger system
and related challenges at high instantaneous luminosities. I will discuss the
search for a high mass standard model Higgs boson in the channel where the Higgs
boson is produced through the fusion of two gluons or two electroweak bosons,
with subsequent decay H->WW->lvqq. I will also present the latest Tevatron Higgs
combination results.
Finally, I will discuss possibilities for Higgs boson searches and measurements
at a future Muon Collider.
