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.

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.
