Next-to-next-to-leading order event generation for $VH$ production with $H\to b\bar{b}$ decay

  title={Next-to-next-to-leading order event generation for \$VH\$ production with \$H\to b\bar\{b\}\$ decay},
  author={Silvia Maria Zanoli and Mauro Chiesa and Emanuele Re and Marius Wiesemann and Giulia Zanderighi},
We consider the Higgsstrahlung process in hadronic collisions and present the computation of next-to-next-to-leading order predictions matched to parton showers for both production and H → bb̄ decay employing the MiNNLOPS method. We present predictions for ZH and W±H production including spin correlations and off-shell effects by calculating the full processes pp → `+`−H → `+`−bb̄, pp → ν`ν̄`H → ν`ν̄`bb̄ and pp → `ν`H → `ν`bb̄ in the narrow-width approximation for the Higgs boson. For the W±H…

NNLOPS description of the H → bb̄ decay with MiNLO
We present an event generator that describes the Higgs boson decay into bquarks at next-to-next-to-leading-order (NNLO) in QCD and allows for a consistent matching to parton shower. For this purpose,
H → bbj at Next-to-Next-to-Leading Order Accuracy
We present the calculation of the decay H → bbj at next-to-next-to-leading order (NNLO) accuracy. We consider contributions in which the Higgs boson couples directly to bottom quarks, i.e. our

The total cross section for Higgs boson production in bottom-quark annihilation is evaluated at next-to-next-to-leading order in QCD. This is the first time that all terms at order
