The most accurate prediction for Higgs production at the LHC

Claude Duhr and collaborators have provided predictions for the QCD production cross section of a Higgs boson at the LHC at an unprecedented accuracy. This result is the most difficult (N3LO) computation for such an observable ever made. The theoretical uncertainty on the production cross section has reduced by a factor of two, an important step towards a precise determination of the properties of the newly discovered scalar boson.

The Physics Department at UCLouvain has been involved for a number of decades in high energy particle physics research, equally strongly on the experimental and instrumental fronts as on the theoretical one. In spite of being located in physically distinct places, all these activities are now brought together within a common organisational structure, the Centre for Cosmology, Particle Physics and Phenomenology (CP3). This structure reinforces the collaboration of these varied components and competences in the physics of the fundamental interactions and the elementary particles.
