Abstract

Abstract The end of LEP and SLC is a good moment to review the way to summarize search results in order to exploit at best, in future analyses and speculations, the pieces of information coming from all experiments. Some known problems with the usual way of reporting results in terms “CL limits” are shortly recalled, and a plea is formulated to publish just parametrized likelihoods, possibly rescaled to the asymptotic insensitivity limit level.
