The goal of this project is to study the nature of the Higgs boson, that is, to verify whether the Higgs boson belongs to a SU(2)_L, as in the standard model, or whether it is a singlet under this symmetry, as predicted by dynamical symmetry breaking models. Using the available experimental data, we analyze the Higgs couplings to gauge bosons as well as, triple gauge boson couplings in order to test the nature of the Higgs. (AU)
