Description

A combination of the results of searches for the standard model Higgs boson is presented. The searches use up to 10 fb-1 of Tevatron collider Run II data. We present upper bounds at the 95% CL on the production rate of a SM-like Higgs boson in the mass range 90-200 GeV. We further present measurements of the cross section times branching ratio for Higgs bosons decaying to bbbar, tau pairs, W pairs, and photon pairs. We evaluate the significance of observed excesses over the standard model background predictions.
