##
The probability density of the mass of the Standard Model Higgs boson

## Abstract

The LEP Collaborations have reported a small excess of events
in their combined Higgs boson analysis at center of mass energies
up to 208 GeV. I present the result of a calculation
of the probability distribution function of the Higgs boson mass
which can be rigorously obtained if the validity of the Standard Model
is assumed. It arises from the combination of the most recent set
of precision electroweak data and the current results
of the Higgs searches at LEP 2.
