Discovery potential for doubly charged Higgs bosons in e+e- collisions at LEP
We study the discovery limits for doubly charged Higgs bosons, Δ--, obtainable at the LEP e+e- collider. We expect that the LEP2 collaborations can rule out the existence of a doubly charged Higgs boson of mass below about 190 GeV for Yukawa couplings greater than 0.1. However, even for larger values of MΔ, evidence for the Δ can be seen due to contributions from virtual intermediate Δ's provided they have relatively large values of the Yukawa couplings.
