Simulation of Higgs Boson Production

Streamer chamber photo of a pion-muon-electron (pi-mu-e) decay chain resulting from an antiproton annihilation. The antiproton enters from the bottom of the picture & annihilates with a proton in neon gas filling the chamber; their energy materialises as 3 nuclear fragments (thick tracks) & several pions (less dense tracks). One positive pion curls tightly to the right in the chamber’s magnetic field before decaying to a muon; the muon forms the spiral at top before decaying to a positron…
