Submission + - Higgs signal gains strength (nature.com)

ananyo writes: Today the two main experiments at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), the world’s most powerful particle accelerator, submitted the results of their latest analyses. The new papers (here https://cdsweb.cern.ch/collection/CMS%20Papers?ln=en and here https://cdsweb.cern.ch/collection/ATLAS%20Papers?ln=en) boost the case for December’s announcement of a possible Higgs signal. Physicists working on the In the case of the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) experiment, have been able to look at another possible kind of Higgs decay, and that allows them to boost their Higgs signal from 2.5 to 3.1. Taken together with data from the other detector, ATLAS, Higgs overall signal now unofficially stands at about 4.3.
