    131 The file libintf_15.f contains the LO interferences between the VBF-like diagrams (eg. ud->udh, uu->uuh) as well as the interferences between VBF and S-channel (udbar->udbarh). It as been checked with Madgraph point by point in the phase space and at the integrated level.

    143143   * top quark effects:
    144       * In particular we neglect diagrams including a top box coupled to two gluons, a Z and the higgs, and their interference with diagrams included in our calculation. Those diagrams are suppressed in the mt->infty limit. However, this contribution can be substantial at the LHC. (See for example [http://arxiv.org/abs/hep-ph/0307206 Brein, Djouadi, Harlander]), and have been computed in this work by [http://dx.doi.org/10.1103/PhysRevD.42.2253 Kniehl] (see also attachment kniehl.pdf)

    146    * b quark initiated charged current processes (i.e. no b->c, b->u mixing). Since b->u << b->c, we just need to check the effect of the latter. Being totally inclusive, we already take into account CKM mixing for the other flavours

    147147   * interferences beyond LO (ok if interferences are already small)
    148    * Non DY-like diagrams in the s-channel (related to top quark effects, ex. gg-&gt;VH via top box or triangle, (see above)
    149    * ||s-ch||^2 -&gt; branching ratio into hadrons: we should understand if take the experimental value, or the fixed order QCD computation
