The plot on the left (eps format) shows the projected exclusion limits for a search for H→WW→2l2v. The expected exclusion mass range is 150<m_{H}<185 GeV. Projection is derived using results published in PAS HIG-08/006 (a pair of isolated leptons, MET, jet veto in the central region; event counting above a cut on the MVA output variable). |
The plot on the left (eps format) shows significance of a projected excess of events in a search for H→WW→2l2v, should the SM Higgs have a mass corresponding to the points in the plot. The discovery level sensitivity (~5σ) is expected for the mass range is 160<m_{H}<170 GeV. Projection is derived using results published in PAS HIG-08/006 (a pair of isolated leptons, MET, jet veto in the central region; event counting above a cut on either the MVA output variable or after applying a small set of sequential cuts). |
The plots on the left (eps format left and right) shows the projected exclusion limits for a search for H→ZZ→4l. The SM Higgs boson cannot be excluded anywhere in the entire mass range. However, the Higgs boson with a mass m_{H}<400 GeV would be excluded, should a fourth generation of quarks exist (an extra doublet of quarks would make the gg→H production rate 9 times larger, regardless of how massive the the two extra quarks might be). Projection is derived using results published in PAS HIG-08/003 and NOTEs 2006/115, 2006/122, 2006/136 (four isolated leptons, no significant impact parameter for any of them; event counting in a sliding 4l-mass window). |
The plot on the left (eps format) shows the projected exclusion limits for a search for H→γγ. The SM Higgs boson cannot be excluded anywhere in the entire mass range. The limit on the anomalous production is expected to be about 4 times σ(pp→H_{SM})xBR(H_{SM}→γγ). Hence, a fermio-phobic Higgs boson with a mass m_{h}<110 GeV would be excluded, since the yield σ(pp→h_{fph})xBR(h_{fph}→γγ) for the fermio-phobic Higgs boson at 7 TeV is >4 for m_{h}<110 GeV. Projection is derived using results published in NOTE-2006/122 (two isolated photons, no photon reconstruction categorization is used; event counting in a sliding γγ-mass window). |
The plot on the left (eps format) shows the projected exclusion limits for a SM Higgs by combining results of the H→WW→2l2v, H→ZZ→4l, and H→γγ. The expected exclusion mass range is 145<m_{H}<190 GeV. Projection is obtained by combing results shown above. |
2xCMS : The plots on the left (eps format left and right) shows the projected exclusion limits for a SM Higgs by combining results of the H→WW→2l2v, H→ZZ→4l, and H→γγ, assuming twice amount of data. This plot is intended to indicate what ATLAS + CMS combined sensitivity might be at 1fb^{-1}. The expected exclusion mass range for the SM Higgs is 140<m_{H}<200 GeV. The Higgs boson with a mass m_{H}<500 GeV would be excluded, should a fourth generation of heavy quarks exist. |
The plot on the left (eps format) shows the projected discovery and exclusion contours in the MSSM (m_{A},tanβ)-plane for a search for a neutral MSSM Higgs bosons in the pp→bbΦ→bbττ channel. At low m_{A}~90 GeV, the discovery can be possible for tanβ>20 and the exclusion limit is expected to reach down to tanβ~15. Projection is derived using results published in NOTEs 2006/075, 2006/101, 2006/105 (one b-tagged jet, 2 τ-candidates (τ_{had}τ_{μ}, τ_{had}τ_{e}, τ_{μ}τ_{e}), MET, extra-jet veto; event counting in a sliding ττ-mass window). |
