Next-to-leading order QCD corrections to pp→b¯bb¯b + X at the LHC: The quark induced case


Binoth, T; Greiner, N; Guffanti, A; Reuter, J; Guillet, J P; Reiter, T (2010). Next-to-leading order QCD corrections to pp→b¯bb¯b + X at the LHC: The quark induced case. Physics Letters B, 685(4-5):293-296.

Abstract

The production of two b¯b pairs is a prominent background for Higgs and New Physics searches in various
extensions of the Standard Model. We present here the next-to-leading order QCD corrections to the
quark induced subprocess using the GOLEM approach for the virtual corrections. We show that our result
considerably improves the prediction and conclude that the inclusion of next-to-leading order effects is
indispensable for reliable studies of b¯bb¯b observables in hadronic collisions.

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.
