Indirect Mass Limits for ${{\boldsymbol H}^{0}}$ from Electroweak Analysis INSPIRE search

The mass limits shown below apply to a Higgs boson ${{\mathit H}^{0}}$ with Standard Model couplings whose mass is a priori unknown.

For limits obtained before the direct measurement of the top quark mass, see the 1996 (Physical Review D54 1 (1996)) Edition of this Review. Other studies based on data available prior to 1996 can be found in the 1998 Edition (The European Physical Journal C3 1 (1998)) of this Review.

1  BAAK 2012A make Standard Model fits to ${{\mathit Z}}$ and neutral current parameters, ${\mathit m}_{{{\mathit t}}}$, ${\mathit m}_{{{\mathit W}}}$, and ${\Gamma}_{{\mathit W}}$ measurements available in 2012 (using also preliminary data). The quoted result is obtained from a fit that does not include the measured mass value of the signal observed at the LHC and also no limits from direct Higgs searches.
2  BAAK 2012 make Standard Model fits to ${{\mathit Z}}$ and neutral current parameters, ${\mathit m}_{{{\mathit t}}}$, ${\mathit m}_{{{\mathit W}}}$, and ${\Gamma}_{{\mathit W}}$ measurements available in 2010 (using also preliminary data). The quoted result is obtained from a fit that does not include the limit from the direct Higgs searches. The result including direct search data from LEP2, the Tevatron and the LHC is $120$ ${}^{+12}_{-5}$ GeV.
3  ERLER 2010A makes Standard Model fits to ${{\mathit Z}}$ and neutral current parameters, ${\mathit m}_{{{\mathit t}}}$, ${\mathit m}_{{{\mathit W}}}$ measurements available in 2009 (using also preliminary data). The quoted result is obtained from a fit that does not include the limits from the direct Higgs searches. With direct search data from LEP2 and Tevatron added to the fit, the 90$\%$ CL (99$\%$ CL) interval is $115 - 148$ ($114 - 197$) GeV.
4  LEP-SLC 2006 make Standard Model fits to ${{\mathit Z}}$ parameters from LEP/SLC and ${\mathit m}_{{{\mathit t}}}$, ${\mathit m}_{{{\mathit W}}}$, and $\Gamma _{W}$ measurements available in 2005 with $\Delta \alpha {}^{(5)}_{{\mathrm {had}}}({\mathit m}_{{{\mathit Z}}}$) = $0.02758$ $\pm0.00035$. The 95$\%$ CL limit is 285 GeV.
