The Importance of Silicon Detectors for the Higgs Boson Discovery and the Study of its Properties


Recent studies are presented demonstrating the important role played by silicon detectors in the the discovery of the Higgs boson. CMS is planning to replace its in an extended technical stop of the LHC in the winter of 2016 . We present results showing that this replacement will significant increase the sample of Higgs bosons that will be reconstructed enabling precision studies of this particle.Comment: on behalf of the CMS Collaboratio
