  author={Julien Baglio and Abdelhak Djouadi},
  journal={Journal of High Energy Physics},
We update the theoretical predictions for the production cross sections of the Standard Model Higgs boson at the Fermilab Tevatron collider, focusing on the two main search channels, the gluon-gluon fusion mechanism gg → H and the Higgs-strahlung processes $ q\bar{q} \to VH $ with V = W/Z, including all relevant higher order QCD and electroweak corrections in perturbation theory. We then estimate the various uncertainties affecting these predictions: the scale uncertainties which are viewed as… 

Higgs production at the lHC

We analyze the production of Higgs particles at the early stage of the CERN large Hadron Collider with a 7 TeV center of mass energy (lHC). We first consider the case of the Standard Model Higgs

High precision determination of the gluon fusion Higgs boson cross-section at the LHC

A bstractWe present the most precise value for the Higgs boson cross-section in the gluon-fusion production mode at the LHC. Our result is based on a perturbative expansion through N3LO in QCD, in an

The measurement of the Higgs self-coupling at the LHC: theoretical status

A bstractNow that the Higgs boson has been observed by the ATLAS and CMS experiments at the LHC, the next important step would be to measure accurately its properties to establish the details of the

Phenomenology of the Higgs at the hadron colliders : from the Standard Model to Supersymmetry

This thesis has been conducted in the context of one of the utmost important searches at current hadron colliders, that is the search for the Higgs boson, the remnant of the electroweak symmetry

PDF dependence of Higgs cross sections at the Tevatron and LHC: response to recent criticism

We respond to some criticism questioning the validity of the current Standard Model Higgs exclusion limits at the Tevatron, due to the significant dependence of the dominant production cross section

Massive gauge boson pair production at the LHC: A next-to-leading order story

Electroweak gauge boson pair production is one of the most important Standard Model processes at the LHC, not only because it is a benchmark process but also by its ability to probe the electroweak

Review of Physics Results from the Tevatron: Higgs Boson Physics

We review the techniques and results of the searches for the Higgs boson performed by the two Tevatron collaborations, CDF and DO. The Higgs boson predicted by the Standard Model was sought in the

Prospects for Higgs physics at energies up to 100 TeV

The prospects for Higgs boson physics at future proton-proton colliders with centre of mass (c.m.) energies up to 100 TeV are summarized and the sensitivity of a 100 Tev proton machine to probe the new Higgs states is discussed and compared to that of the LHC with a c.m. energy of 14 TeV.

Higgs Physics Beyond the Standard Model

On the 4th of July 2012, the discovery of a new scalar particle with a mass of order 125 GeV was announced by the ATLAS and CMS collaborations. An important era is now opening: the precise



NLO QCD corrections to t t H production in hadron collisions

The Higgs boson H of the Standard Model can be searched for in the channels pp̄/pp→ tt̄H + X at the Tevatron and the LHC. The cross sections for these processes and the final-state distributions of

Renormalization-group improved prediction for Higgs production at hadron colliders

We use renormalization-group methods in effective field theory to improve the theoretical prediction for the cross section for Higgs-boson production at hadron colliders. In addition to soft-gluon

Electroweak and QCD corrections to Higgs production via vector-boson fusion at the CERN LHC

The radiative corrections of the strong and electroweak interactions are calculated at next-to-leading order for Higgs-boson production in the weak-boson-fusion channel at hadron colliders.

Electroweak radiative corrections to associated WH and ZH production at hadron colliders

Higgs-boson production in association with W or Z bosons, p pbar -> WH/ZH + X, is the most promising discovery channel for a light Standard Model Higgs particle at the Fermilab Tevatron. We present

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. For
