Precise QCD description of the Higgs boson transverse momentum spectrum.

Chen, Xuan and Gehrmann, Thomas and Glover, E.W. Nigel and Huss, Alexander and Li, Ye and Neill, Duff and Schulze, Markus and Stewart, Iain W. and Zhu, Hua Xing (2019) 'Precise QCD description of the Higgs boson transverse momentum spectrum.', Physics letters B., 788 . pp. 425-430.


The transverse momentum () distribution of Higgs bosons at hadron colliders enables a detailed probe of its production dynamics and is a key ingredient to precision studies of Higgs boson properties, but receives very large QCD corrections. We obtain a precision prediction for the spectrum by matching second-order (NNLO) QCD corrections at large with resummation of third-order logarithmic (N3LL) corrections at small . We achieve significantly improved results for with perturbative uncertainties , and thus a convergent perturbative series for all values of pT.
