Updated Combination of CDF and DØ's Searches for Standard Model Higgs Boson Production with up to 10.0 fb-1 of Data
95% C.L. exclusion for SM Higgs with mass mH between 147 and 180 GeV/c2, and
between 100 and 103 GeV/c2.
An excess with a significance of 2.5σ is seen that might
be interpreted as coming from a Higgs boson with a mass in the region of 115 to 135 GeV. An excess with a significance
of 2.9σ is seen in the combination of CDF and DØ's H→bb channels.
The results of combinations of searches
for H→bb, H→W+W-, and
H→γγ are shown as well.
The same note is available as CDF Note 10884 and DØ Note 6348, and FERMILAB-CONF-12-318-E
