Title: Prospects for Higgs searches at the Tevatron and LHC in the MSSM with explicit CP violation.

We analyze the Tevatron and Large Hadron Collider (LHC) reach for the Higgs sector of the minimal supersymmetric standard model (MSSM) in the presence of explicit CP violation. Using the most recent studies from the Tevatron and LHC collaborations, we examine the CPX benchmark scenario for a range of CP-violating phases in the soft trilinear and gluino mass terms and compute the exclusion/discovery potentials for each collider on the (MH+,tan{beta}) plane. Projected results from standard model (SM)-like, nonstandard, and charged Higgs searches are combined to maximize the statistical significance. We exhibit complementarity between the SM-like Higgs searches at the LHC with low luminosity and the Tevatron, and estimate the combined reach of the two colliders in the early phase of LHC running.
