Theoretical predictions for charm and bottom production at the LHC
A bstractWe present predictions for a variety of single-inclusive observables that stem from the production of charm and bottom quark pairs at the 7 TeV LHC. They are obtained within the FONLLExpand

A Positive-weight next-to-leading-order Monte Carlo for heavy flavour hadroproduction
We present a next-to-leading order calculation of heavy flavour production in hadronic collisions that can be interfaced to shower Monte Carlo programs. The calculation is performed in the context ofExpand

Heavy-quark correlations in hadron collisions at next-to-leading order
Abstract We present a calculation of the fully exclusive parton cross sections for heavy-quark production at order O(αS3) in QCD. Our result includes the Born cross section for producing a Q Q pair,Expand

A first unbiased global determination of polarized PDFs and their uncertainties
We present a first global determination of spin-dependent parton distribution functions (PDFs) and their uncertainties using the NNPDF methodology: NNPDFpol1.1. Longitudinally polarized deepinelasticExpand

The t-tbar cross-section at 1.8 and 1.96 TeV : a study of the systematics due to parton densities and scale dependence
We update the theoretical predictions for the t t production cross-section at the Tevatron, taking into account the most recent determinations of systematic uncertainties in the extraction of theExpand

On the metastability of the standard model vacuum
If the Higgs mass mH is as low as suggested by present experimental information, the Standard Model ground state might not be absolutely stable. We present a detailed analysis of the lower bounds onExpand

Updated predictions for the total production cross sections of top and of heavier quark pairs at the Tevatron and at the LHC
We present updated predictions for the total production cross section of top-quark pairs at the Tevatron and at the LHC, and, at the LHC, of heavy-quark pairs with mass in the range 0.5 - 2 TeV. ForExpand

b-initiated processes at the LHC: a reappraisal
A bstractSeveral key processes at the LHC in the standard model and beyond that involve b quarks, such as single-top, Higgs, and weak vector boson associated production, can be described in QCDExpand

Jet photoproduction at HERA
Abstract We compute various kinematical distributions for one jet and two jet inclusive photoproduction at HERA. Our results are accurate to next-to-leading order in QCD. We use the subtractionExpand
