The possibility of setting constraints on the couplings of a scalar (pseudoscalar) Higgs boson to the tau lepton and the b quark in the reactions \(e^ + e^ - \to \nu \bar \nu \tau ^ + \tau ^ - \) and \(e^ + e^ - \to \nu \bar \nu b\bar b\) at a future linear electron-positron collider of total energy \(\sqrt s = 500 GeV\) is studied. The admixture of a new hypothetical pseudoscalar state of the Higgs boson in the H ff vertex is parametrized in the form (m f /ν)(a+5b). On the basis of an analysis of differential distributions for the processes under study, it is shown that data from the future linear collider TESLA will make it possible to constrain the parameters a and b as −0.32≤Δa≤0.24 and −0.73≤b≤0.73 in the case of the reaction \(e^ + e^ - \to \nu \bar \nu \tau ^ + \tau ^ - \) and as −0.026≤Δa≤0.027 and −0.23≤b≤0.23 in the case of the reaction \(e^ + e^ - \to \nu \bar \nu b\bar b\). It is emphasized that the contribution of the fusion subprocess WWH in the channel involving an electron neutrino is of particular importance, since this contribution enhances the sensitivity of data to the parameters being analyzed.
