Searches for neutral Higgs bosons in e+ e- collisions from √s = 191.6 to 201.7 GeV
Published online: 8 March 2002
Neutral Higgs bosons of the Standard Model (SM) and the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (MSSM) were searched for in the data collected in 1999 by the DELPHI experiment at centre-of-mass energies between 191.6 and 201.7 GeV with a total integrated luminosity of 228 pb-1. These analyses, in combination with our results at lower energies, set 95% confidence level lower mass bounds on the Standard Model Higgs boson (107.3 GeV/c2) and on the lightest neutral scalar (85.9 GeV/c2) and neutral pseudoscalar (86.5 GeV/c2) Higgs bosons in representative scans of the MSSM parameter space. An extended scan of the MSSM parameter space was also performed to test the robustness of these limits.
