Cascioli, F; Gehrmann, T; Grazzini, M; Kallweit, S; Maierhöfer, P; von Manteuffel, A; Pozzorini, S; Rathlev, D; Tancredi, L; Weihs, E (2014). ZZ production at hadron colliders in NNLO QCD. Physics Letters B, 735:311-313.

Abstract

We report on the first calculation of next-to-next-to-leading order (NNLO) QCD corrections to the inclusive production of Z-boson pairs at hadron colliders. Numerical results are presented for pp collisions with centre-of-mass energy (√{ s}) ranging from 7 to 14 TeV. The NNLO corrections increase the NLO result by an amount varying from 11% to 17% as √{ s} goes from 7 to 14 TeV. The loop-induced gluon fusion contribution provides about 60% of the total NNLO effect. When going from NLO to NNLO the scale uncertainties do not decrease and remain at the ± 3% level.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
