"Gluon-fusion Higgs production: the final frontier"

Presented by Elisabetta Furlan, ETH, Zurich

Thursday, November 12, 2015, 12:30 pm — Building 510 Room 2-160

The gluon-fusion Higgs production cross section has been recently computed through the next-to-next-to-next to leading order (N^3LO) in QCD. This unprecedented level of accuracy is crucial to exploit fully the LHC data in the validation of the Standard Model and in the search for potential (small) deviations due to new physics. I will give an overview of the tools that we employed to achieve this result, from the framework of heavy-quark effective theories to the analytical and mathematical machinery that we developed. I will conclude with some results and future prospects.
