Precise QCD predictions for the production of a photon pair in association with two jets


Gehrmann, T; Greiner, N; Heinrich, G (2013). Precise QCD predictions for the production of a photon pair in association with two jets. Physical Review Letters, 111(22):online.

Abstract

We compute the cross section for the production of a high-mass photon pair in association with two hadronic jets to next-to-leading order in quantum chromodynamics. Our results allow us for the first time to reliably predict the absolute normalization of this process and demonstrate that the shape of important kinematical distributions is modified by higher-order effects. The perturbative corrections will be an important ingredient in precision studies of Higgs boson properties from its production in association with two jets.
