I am trying to do some plots for determining the range of higgs mass. Can somebody tell me how to plot higgs mass 'm_h' versus tan β ? or 'm_h' versus spectral index 'n_s' ?

Dear kurros, thanks for taking interest. The authors of the following paper
http://arxiv.org/abs/1108.0070 claim that from this model, they have plotted higgs mass 'm_h' versus tan β and 'm_h' versus spectral index 'n_s' . But I am unable to find any equations/formulas through which I can reproduce them.

plots for determining the range of higgs mas
The authors explain what they are doing in their paper  see Eqn. 25.

thanks vanadium but the problem is that they determine the higgs mass in the following paper of theirs
arxiv.org/abs/1108.3762 but I am not able to understand how to plot the graphs in Fig 1 of this paper.

They say they calculate it along the lines of reference 14.
The references are there for a reason  you need to follow them like a trail of breadcrumbs to get the answer.
