Next-to-leading orderγγ+2−jetproduction at the LHC.

Bern, Z. and Dixon, L. J. and Febres Cordero, F. and Höche, S. and Ita, H. and Kosower, D. A. and Lo Presti, N. A. and Maître, D. (2014) 'Next-to-leading orderγγ+2−jetproduction at the LHC.', Physical review D., 90 (5). 054004.


We present next-to-leading-order QCD predictions for cross sections and for a comprehensive set of distributions in γγ þ 2-jet production at the Large Hadron Collider. We consider the contributions from loop amplitudes for two photons and four gluons, but we neglect top quarks. We use BLACKHAT together with SHERPA to carry out the computation. We use a Frixione cone isolation for the photons. We study standard sets of cuts on the jets and the photons and also sets of cuts appropriate for studying backgrounds to Higgs-boson production via vector-boson fusion.
