Fiducial distributions in Higgs and Drell-Yan production at N3LL+NNLO


Bizoń, Wojciech; Chen, Xuan; Gehrmann-De Ridder, Aude; Gehrmann, Thomas; Glover, Nigel; Huss, Alexander; Monni, Pier Francesco; Re, Emanuele; Rottoli, Luca; Torrielli, Paolo (2018). Fiducial distributions in Higgs and Drell-Yan production at N3LL+NNLO. Journal of High Energy Physics, 2018(12):132.

Abstract

The perturbative description of certain differential distributions across a wide kinematic range requires the matching of fixed-order perturbation theory with resummation of large logarithmic corrections to all orders. We present precise matched predictions for transverse-momentum distributions in Higgs boson (H) and Drell-Yan pair (DY) production as well as for the closely related ϕ η * distribution at the LHC. The calculation is exclusive in the Born kinematics, and allows for arbitrary fiducial selection cuts on the decay products of the colour singlets, which is of primary relevance for experimental analyses. Our predictions feature very small residual scale uncertainties and display a good convergence of the perturbative series. A comparison of the predictions for DY observables to experimental data at 8 TeV shows a very good agreement within the quoted errors.
