Single jet inclusive production for the individual jet pT scale choice at the LHC.

Currie, J. and Glover, E.W.N. and Gehrmann, T. and Gehrmann-de Ridder, A. and Huss, A. and Pires, J. (2017) 'Single jet inclusive production for the individual jet pT scale choice at the LHC.', Acta physica Polonica B., 48 (6). pp. 955-967.


We study the single jet inclusive cross section up to next-to-next-to leading order in perturbative QCD, implemented in the parton-level event generator NNLOJET. Our results are fully differential in the jet transverse momentum and rapidity, and we apply fiducial cuts for comparison with the available ATLAS 7 TeV 4.5 fb−1 data for jet radius R = 0.4. For the theoretical calculation, we employ the antenna subtraction method to reliably cancel all infrared divergences present at intermediate stages of the calculation. We present all results using the individual jet transverse momentum µR = µF ∼ pT as the renormalization and factorization scale for each jet’s contribution to the single jet inclusive cross section. Finally, we consider the differences between our predictions using this scale choice to those for the leading jet transverse momentum scale choice, with reference to the ATLAS data.
