Introduction

This page contains no new results, merely four plots comparing our results shown at Moriond, EPS and LP11

The plots are here

caption Figure
Indicated by solid lines, are combined upper limits on the SM Higgs boson production cross section divided by the Standard Model expectation as a function of mH. The dotted lines show the median expected limit in the absence of a signal and the green and yellow bands indicate the corresponding 68% and 95% expected regions. These are 95% CL limit using the CLs method. The black lines correspond to the update of the combination of Higgs boson searches in 1.0 to 2.3 fb-1 of pp collision data taken at sqrt(s)=7 TeV. The red lines correspond to the combination of Higgs boson searches with 35 pb-1 of pp collision data taken at sqrt(s)=7 TeV in 2010. fig_01.png eps png

The consistency with the background-only hypothesis is estimated by the p0 probability that a background-only experiment is more signal-like than the observed one. The probability p0 is bounded to be equal to 50% for downward fluctuations of the background and smaller than 50% when an excess of events is observed. This probability is displayed for the combination of Higgs boson searches in 1.0 to 2.3 fb-1 of pp collision data taken at sqrt(s)=7 TeV (black line) and for the combination of Higgs boson searches in 1.0 to 2.3 fb-1 of pp collision data taken at sqrt(s)=7 TeV (red line). The dashed lines show the median expected significance in the hypothesis of a Standard Model Higgs boson production signal for the corresponding integrated luminosities of the aforementionned samples. The four horizontal dashed lines indicate the p-values corresponding to significances of 2sigma, 3sigma, 4sigma and 5sigma. fig_04.png eps png
