Combined CDF and DØ Upper Limits on Standard Model Higgs Boson Production in the W+W- Decay Mode
January 25, 2010
L=4.8 fb-1 (CDF) and 5.4 fb-1 (DØ)
This result is a combination of CDF's H→W+W- search, which is documented in
arXiv:1001.4468 [hep-ex], and DØ's H→ll+MET Search,
which is documented in arXiv:1001.4481 [hep-ex].
(95% C.L. exclusion for SM Higgs with mass mH between 162 and 166 GeV/c2)
All three papers, the CDF, DØ, and Tevatron combination papers, have been published in the
