Abstract: The talk will explore possible methods of computing an effective Higgs-nucleon coupling. While the interaction of the Higgs with fundamental particles in the Standard Model of particle physics is well understood, how it couples to composite particles like the nucleon is less well understood. The physics of the Higgs boson itself will be reviewed, and then previous attempts at finding such a coupling will be discussed. Finally, several potential new methods will be given brief descriptions.
