  • We investigate the production of heavy, neutral Higgs boson resonances and their decays to top-quark top-antiquark (t t ) pairs at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at next-to-leading order (NLO) in the strong coupling of quantum chromodynamics (QCD). The NLO corrections to heavy Higgs boson production and the Higgs-QCD interference are calculated in the large mt limit with an effective K-factor rescaling. The nonresonant t t background is taken into account at NLO QCD including weak-interaction… CONTINUE READING
