Description

After carefully explaining how fixed and variable flavour schemes arise in the context of DIS, I will discuss how one can consistently combine the merits of the two. The final matched result includes the full power corrections of the fixed-flavour scheme and resums the potentially large logs. I will then talk about the application of this approach to the case of bbH at the LHC and present a fair and thorough comparison to the other existing predictions in the literature.
