Nevertheless, as a central message, it can be concluded that the indirect determination of the Higgs mass range has shown that the Higgs is light, with its mass well below the non-perturbative regime.
Standard Model Theory
Direct and indirect determinations of the top mass are compatible, and a light Higgs boson is clearly favoured by the analysis of precision data in the standard model context, which is far below the mass range where the standard Higgs sector becomes non-perturbative.
