Though they have probably found a new unknown and unpredicted particle, the decay modes indicate clearly that it is not the SM Higgs. No Tau decay, the WW decay level is almost at the noise level, the photons decay is too high significantly and the ZZ decay is not at the predicted level (at least not yet). (with all the corrections, everything will be lowered by 0.5 to 1 sigma).
In fact, the detectors catch only non-virtual particles but the SM model is based on W and Z bosons which have only theoretical properties because they are virtual particles. There mass-energy is supposed to come from the vacuum and their excess energy go back unnoticed to the vacuum so energy is conserved. It is a circular argument needing a higgs field and a higgs boson. So they are stuck using a wrong model to analyse the data.
In a few months, we will learn that it is not the SM Higgs but by tweaking parameters it is another version of the Higgs. But it is a dead end... The way toward unification is not by adding fields and parameters but by eliminate some of them. A simple example is the magnetic and electric field unification by using relativity.http://www.quantumdiaries.org/tag/linear-collider/
Photons have transverse mass... Look how QM explains photon's spin and circular vs linear polarization (transverse components only, the longitudinal components are totally contracted by relativity: this is my explanation).
Spacetime is an effect and not a cause, the proof of that is instantaneous entanglement. Photons having a transverse mass is the best solution. ;)
