The search for the Higgs boson, a key component in the Standard Model description of electroweak symmetry breaking, is a major goal of the physics program at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN. Both ATLAS and CMS, experimental collaborations at LHC, have done extensive simulation and performance studies to optimize their strategies for this search. Some of these studies are discussed, as well as the resulting discovery potential (as a function of the Higgs boson mass), for the main experimental signatures that will be addressed by the two collaborations. © 2007 Elsevier B.V.
