We will report on the recent calculation of the NLO QCD corrections to vector boson pair production in gluon fusion, focussing in particular on its interference with the Higgs signal. In particular, as it was shown by Caola and Melnikov, assessing the impact of the interference on the signal and background cross sections in the high energy tail (i.e. for an off-shell Higgs) is crucial to put...

We present a non-perturbative study of a five-dimensional Gauge-Higgs Unification model on the lattice using Monte Carlo simulations.
We find a region in the Higgs phase where the ratio of the Higgs to the gauge boson mass is like in the Standard Model. In the same region we observe localization to four dimensions. Despite the non existence of a second order phase transition, cut-off effects...

We investigate nonperturbative renormalization group flows of various Higgs-Yukawa models mimicking the Higgs sector of the standard model. We reanalyze the conventional arguments that relate a lower bound for the Higgs mass with vacuum stability in the framework of the functional renormalization group as well as in the light of exact results for the regularized fermion determinant. In both...

Particle Phenomenology

The discovery of a Higgs-like particle at the LHC has triggered considerable ongoing effort to reveal its nature and properties. The mass of the particle is one of its basic properties; due to the high-precision mass measurement, higher-order calculations are necessary to make competitive predictions. Although with current experimental results the particle could be identified as the Standard...

Particle Phenomenology

I discuss the combined resummation of soft and Coulomb-gluon effects for the production of heavy coloured particles at NNLL accuracy, which includes contributions from spin-dependent non-relativistic potentials and so-called annihilation corrections.
I present results for squark and gluino pair production
at the LHC.
