    Higgs Production at LHC

    Full text link
    We review Higgs production at hadron colliders via vector-boson fusion and via gluon fusion, fully inclusively and in association with one and two jets. Then we address the issue of the measurement of the coupling of the Higgs to the vector bosons at LHC.Comment: 6 pages, 7 Postscript figures, uses wqcd03.cls Talk at the International Workshop on QCD: QCD@Work 2003 - Conversano (Italy) 14-18 June 2003 (eConf C030614

    QCD Amplitudes in the High-Energy Limit

    Get PDF
    Dijet production with a rapidity gap between the jets is considered as a test ground for the production of a heavy Higgs boson via weak-boson fusion at hadron supercolliders. It is argued that in order to perform a detailed analysis of dijet production with a rapidity gap we need an {\cal O}(\al_s^4) calculation including the relevant collinear enhancements which give structure to the jets. Such a calculation needs not be exact, but must include the full leading power in s^/t^\hat{s}/\hat{t} of the rate of dijet production in the high-energy limit. The QCD amplitudes must be determined to the corresponding accuracy. Accordingly, the scattering amplitudes necessary to compute the full leading power in s^/t^\hat{s}/\hat{t} of dijet production to {\cal O}(\al_s^3) are analysed.Comment: LaTeX, 18 pages.

    Theory of Double Hard Diffraction

    Full text link
    In this review talk I consider the physics of rapidity gaps between two jets at hadron colliders, as a preliminary investigation toward understanding the production of a Higgs boson via weak boson fusion at the LHC.Comment: LaTeX, 11 pages (including 2 figures).

    Parton-Parton Elastic Scattering and Rapidity Gaps at SSC and LHC Energies

    Full text link
    The theory of the perturbative pomeron, due to Lipatov and collaborators, is used to compute the probability of observing parton-parton elastic scattering and rapidity gaps between jets in hadron collisions at SSC and LHC energies.Comment: 7 page

    Next-to-Leading Corrections to the BFKL Equation

    Get PDF
    Using the helicity formalism in the high-energy limit, we compute the amplitudes which generate the real next-to-leading-logarithmic corrections to the BFKL equation. Accordingly, we provide a list of all the off-shell vertices necessary to build such amplitudes.Comment: LaTeX, 16 pages (including 4 figures).

    Large Rapidity Gaps between Jets at HERA and at the Tevatron

    In this talk I consider the formation of a rapidity gap in hadron production between two jets.Comment: LaTeX, 5 pages. To appear in the Proceedings of the International Workshop on Deep Inelastic Scattering and Related Phenomena, Roma, Italy, April 199

    QCD challenges at the LHC

    Get PDF
    In this talk I review some challenges which await perturbative QCD at the Large Hadron Collider. In particular, I consider the underlying event, Monte Carlo methods and next-to-leading order (NLO) calculations.Comment: 4 pages.

    QCD at hadron colliders

    Full text link
    QCD is an extensively developed and tested gauge theory, which models the strong interactions in the high-energy regime. In this talk, I shall review the considerable progress which has been achieved in the last few years in the most actively studied QCD topics: Monte Carlo models, higher-order corrections, and parton distribution functions. Thanks to that, QCD in the high-energy regime is becoming more and more an essential precision toolkit to analyse Higgs and New Physics scenarios at the LHC.Comment: 12 pages, 1 figure.

    BFKL in forward jet production

    Get PDF
    In this talk I consider dijet production at large rapidity intervals in hadron collisions and forward-jet production in DIS as candidate signatures of a BFKL evolution. The state of the art on the measurements, and on the BFKL-motivated phenomenological analyses with emphasis on the different approximations involved, is reviewed.Comment: LaTeX, 16 pages To appear in the Proceedings of the XIIth Hadron Collider Physics Workshop, Stony Brook, NY, June 199

    Quark-antiquark contribution to the multigluon amplitudes in the helicity formalism

    Get PDF
    Using the helicity formalism, we compute the contribution of a quark-antiquark pair to the tree-level multigluon amplitudes in the high-energy limit. The qˉ q\bar{q}\, q-pair production is absent in the leading-log formalism, but contributes to the next-to-leading corrections to it, and is therefore relevant for the computation of parton-parton scattering in the high-energy limit and of the gluon anomalous dimension at small xbjx_{bj}, at next-to-leading accuracy.Comment: LaTeX, 24 pages (including 5 compressed uuencoded figures
