Description

Higgs production via vector boson fusion is expected to be a very important process at the LHC, both as a discovery channel and as a method of examining the trilinear coupling between weak bosons and a Higgs. Complete one-loop virtual corrections to the production of all neutral Higgs bosons have been combined with two-loop Higgs propagator corrections and contributions due to real emission in both the Standard Model and the (complex) MSSM. Additionally, specifically SUSY decays of the Higgs boson are considered. These have been implemented into the Monte Carlo program VBFNLO.
