Triple differential dijet cross section at the LHC.

Ridder, A. Gehrmann-De and Gehrmann, T. and Glover, E. W. N. and Huss, A. and Pires, J. (2019) 'Triple differential dijet cross section at the LHC.', Physical review letters., 123 (10). p. 102001.


The measurement of the triple-differential dijet production cross section as a function of the average transverse momentum pT;avg, half the rapidity separation y, and the boost yb of the two leading jets in the event enables a kinematical scan of the underlying parton momentum distributions. We compute for the first time the second-order perturbative QCD corrections to this triple-differential dijet cross section, at leading color in all partonic channels, thereby enabling precision studies with LHC dijet data. A detailed comparison with experimental CMS 8 TeV data is performed, demonstrating how the shape of this differential cross section probes the parton densities in different kinematical ranges.
