CMS public results for Higgs boson

  1. Oct 7, 2014 #1
    Hi all,

    I read one of the CMS results for new charged Higgs on :

    I can't understand this sentence at the main results:
    What does it mean? is that constrains the theoretical calculations of sigma(pp -> H+- tb) to be 0.41-0.030 pb,
    what about the last sentence which mentions "0.38-0.026 pb" ?

    The ranges correspond to the mass ranges, different masses have different exclusion limits.
