Description

We present the results of CDF searches for diboson production in final states with jets identified as originating from heavy flavor quark decays. In particular, searches for WZ/ZZ production where the first W or Z boson decays leptonically and the second Z decays into a pair of bottom or charm quarks mimic primary Tevatron searches for a low mass Higgs with subsequent decay into a pair of bottom quarks produced in association with a W or Z boson. CDF's ability to observe diboson production in these final states provides a critical validation of the tools, techniques, and background modeling used in our H->bb searches.
