This afternoon there will be a couple of talks corresponding to Higgs searches at CDF and DZero (The two main experiments at the Tevatron). From the slides these are the two cheese and lettuce plots:
On Monday a final talk will combine these two plots and the result should be some exclusion around the 160 to 170 GeV mass range.
The DZero plot has some hint of a signal for lower mass, but not enough to count. The CDF has even less signal. Combining these plots properly is a complex process but it is difficult to see how a signal at 3 sigmas could be reached. I am guessing that Monday’s talk will therefore go no further than an exclusion that is a little bit better than previous limits.
Hopefully someone who is able to see these two talks this afternoon will be able to report if there is anything that sounds more optimistic.
