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.
