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

Jens Erler, (Penn)


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.
