The Higgs mechanism accommodates the observed breaking of electroweak symmetry in the standard model (SM). 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. This paper summarizes the status of the search for a high mass (mH > 135GeV) SM Higgs boson at Fermilab’s Tevatron p¯p accelerator. In the absence of a Higgs signal the Tevatron excludes at the 95% C.L. the production of a SM Higgs boson in the mass range of 158–175 GeV.
