Precise predictions for dijet production at the LHC.

Currie, J. and Gehrmann-DeRidder, A. and Gehrmann, T. and Glover, E.W.N. and Huss, A. and Pires, J. (2017) 'Precise predictions for dijet production at the LHC.', Physical review letters., 119 (15). p. 152001.


We present the calculation of dijet production, doubly differential in dijet mass m j j and rapidity difference | y ∗ | , at leading color in all partonic channels at next-to-next-to-leading order (NNLO) in perturbative QCD. We consider the long-standing problems associated with scale choice for dijet production at next-to-leading order (NLO) and investigate the impact of including the NNLO contribution. We find that the NNLO theory provides reliable predictions, even when using scale choices that display pathological behavior at NLO. We choose the dijet invariant mass as the theoretical scale on the grounds of perturbative convergence and residual scale variation and compare the predictions to the ATLAS 7 TeV 4.5     fb − 1 data.
