A bstractWe have recently derived a factorization formula for the Higgs-boson production cross section in the presence of a jet veto, which allows for a systematic resummation of large Sudakov logarithms of the form $ \alpha_s^n{\ln^m}\left( {{{{p_T^{\mathrm{veto}}}} \left/ {{{m_{\mathrm{H}}}}} \right.}} \right) $, along with the large virtual corrections known to affect also the total cross section. Here we determine the ingredients entering this formula at two-loop accuracy. Specifically, we… Expand
