Title: Taming the Higgs Boson at the Tevatron


The ATLAS and CMS experiments have caught what appears to be the elusive Higgs boson. But is it really the final piece to the puzzle or a doorway to something new? In the standard model, the Higgs mechanism* has the amazing feature of explaining not only how electroweak symmetry is broken, but also how fermions acquire mass. Once the mass of the Higgs boson is known, which is now the case, the standard model makes very precise predictions of the properties of the Higgs boson. I will present the most recent Higgs result from the Fermilab Tevatron collider. The focus will be on the Tevatron's strength in the important H->bb channel, which is currently the only evidence for direct Higgs-fermion coupling, as well as new preliminary measurements. The hunt is over, but now it must be tamed. *More accurately, the Brout-Englert-Higgs-Guralnik-Hagen-Kibble mechanism.
