We present a calculation of the fully differential cross section for Higgs-boson production in the gluon fusion channel through next-to-next-to-leading order (NNLO) in perturbative QCD. We apply the method introduced in Phys. Rev. D 69, 076010 (2004)] to compute double real emission corrections. Our calculation permits arbitrary cuts on the final state in the reaction hh-->H+X. It can easily be extended to include decays of the Higgs boson into observable final states. In this Letter, we… Expand
