An actual Higgs limit
August 3, 2008
News from ICHEP: Matt Herndon presented a new Tevatron combined limit for Higgs production. Thanks to a lot of hard work, good luminosity, and a bit of luck on D0’s part, CDF+D0 now exclude a Standard Model Higgs at 170 GeV at exactly 95% confidence level. (Note: not at 165 or 175. It’s a very small exclusion window.) The talk will be available later in the evening.
UPDATE: as promised, available here (Sun 15:30).
