Kirill Melnikov: Higgs boson production in weak boson fusion: non-factorizable QCD corrections

Monday, February 3, 2020 from to (Europe/Berlin)
at Bldg 2A ( SR2 )
Description
I will review theoretical predictions for Higgs boson production in weak boson fusion.  I will also 
discuss the so-called non-factorizable corrections that arise at next-to-next-to-leading  order in perturbative QCD. 
These corrections can be computed in the so-called eikonal approximation, 
retaining all the terms that are not suppressed by the ratio of the transverse momenta of the tagging jets 
to the total center-of-mass energy. In certain kinematic distributions the non-factorizable corrections can be 
quite comparable to their factorizable counter-parts.
