We consider electroweak Higgs plus three jets production at NLO QCD beyond strict VBF acceptance cuts. We investigate, for the first time, how accurate the VBF approximation is in these regions and within perturbative uncertainties by a detailed comparison of full and approximate calculations. We find that a rapidity gap between the tagging jets guarantees a good approximation, while an invariant mass cut alone is not sufficient, which needs to be confronted with experimental choices. We also…

Soft QCD effects in VBS/VBF topologies

We consider the impact of multi-parton interactions and colour reconnection on the modeling of vector boson fusion and vector boson scattering (VBS) final states at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC).

Precise predictions for same-sign W-boson scattering at the LHC

This article presents a detailed study of the vector-boson scattering process with two positively-charged leptons and missing transverse momentum in the final state, and carries out a systematic comparison of the various approximations that are usually performed for this kind of process against the complete calculation, at LO and NLO QCD accuracy.

Motivated by searches for so-called leptonic scalars at the LHC and the recent measurement of the W boson’s mass at the Tevatron, we revisit the phenomenology of the Zee-Babu model for neutrino

Vector-Boson Fusion Higgs Production at Three Loops in QCD.

It is found that the corrections to inclusive vector-boson fusion Higgs production at proton colliders in the limit in which there is no color exchange between the hadronic systems associated with the two colliding protons are at the 1‰-2‰ level, well within the scale uncertainty of the next-to-next- to-leading-order calculation.
