Thee + e –-collider facilities at LEP II, with the CM energy S in the range 100–170 GeV, may be able to detect light Higgs bosons, assuming a high luminosity. The production cross sections of a light Higgs bosonH 0 in association with the neutral gauge bosonZ 0 are calculated for varying ranges of the CM energy expected to be available to LEP II and VLEEP (Novosibirsk) and for various values of the light Higgs mass. It is found that production cross sections are sizable in comparison with those for the very massive Higgs bosons in proton-anti(proton) supercolliders, Tevatron, SppS, and SSC, respectively. The implication of this feature is pointed out. Further, prospects for light Higgs production in association with the charged gauge bosonW – in ultraenergetic neutrino beams are examined.
