HiggsBounds and HiggsSignals
HiggsBounds(P. Bechtle, O. Brein, S. Heinemeyer, O. Stål, T. Stefaniak, G. Weiglein and K. Williams)
HiggsBounds takes a selection of Higgs sector predictions for any particular model as input and then uses the experimental topological cross section limits from Higgs searches at LEP, the Tevatron and the LHC to determine if this parameter point has been excluded at 95% C.L..
Further information can be found in the following references:
In particular, consult the latest version of the HiggsBounds 4.x.x manual.
The HiggsBounds source files can be obtained from our download page.
You can also quickly run HiggsBounds via our online version (see below).
HiggsSignals performs a statistical test of the Higgs sector predictions of arbitrary models (using the HiggsBounds input routines) with the measurements of Higgs boson signal rates and masses from the Tevatron and the LHC.
The program is documented in:
The latest version of the user manual can be found here: HiggsSignals 1.x.x manual. Further information on the program and related issues can be found in
The HiggsSignals source files can be obtained from our download page.
