Next-to-next-to leading order QCD predictions for single jet inclusive production at the LHC.

Currie, J. and Glover, E. W. N. and Pires, J. (2017) 'Next-to-next-to leading order QCD predictions for single jet inclusive production at the LHC.', Physical review letters., 118 (7). 072002.


We report the first calculation of fully differential jet production at leading color in all partonic channels at next-to-next-to leading order in perturbative QCD and compare to the available ATLAS 7 TeV data. We discuss the size and shape of the perturbative corrections along with their associated scale variation across a wide range in jet transverse momentum, p T , and rapidity, y . We find significant effects, especially at low p T , and discuss the possible implications for parton distribution function fits.
