Search for Charged Higgs bosons: Preliminary Combined Results Using LEP data Collected at Energies up to 209 GeV
In the year 2000 the four LEP experiments have collected 870 pb-1 of data at energies between 200 and 209 GeV, with about 510 pb-1 above 206 GeV. These data have been combined with data sets collected earlier at lower energies. %The following 95% confidence level bounds have been obtained. For charged Higgs bosons predicted by two-doublet extensions of the Standard Model and decaying only into the channels H+->csbar and tau+nutau, a lower mass bound of 78.6 GeV is obtained, at the 95% confidence level.
