Searching for Higgs bosons of minimal supersymmetry
After a brief introduction, we study the constraints on MSSM the Higgs sector parameters from the non-observation of any Higgs boson signals in experiments at LEP. We also review the range of Higgs boson masses that can be searched for at LEP 200. For the most part, we focus on the prospects for the detection of MSSM Higgs bosons in experiments at hadron supercolliders, assuming that these are too heavy to be discovered at LEP 200. We then show that supersymmetric decays of Higgs bosons can significantly reduce the rates for event topologies usually used for Higgs searches. Finally, we discuss some promising new channels for MSSM Higgs boson detection that become possible if these SUSY decays are allowed.
