The Higgs boson plays an essential role in explaining why particles have mass, and a precise knowledge of the mass of the Higgs boson is required to test the validity of the Standard Model of particle physics. The aim of Antonio Castelli’s thesis is to present a new strategy to measure the mass of the Higgs boson using the dataset collected during the ATLAS experiment over the years 2011 and 2012.
