    Physics at Large Rapidities in γ∗γ∗→\gamma^*\gamma^* \to Hadrons at LEP2

    Full text link
    We compute the order-\as corrections to the total cross section and to jet rates in γ∗γ∗→\gamma^* \gamma^* \to hadrons for the process \epem\to\epem + hadrons. We use a NLO order general-purpose partonic Monte Carlo event generator that allows the computation of a rate differential in the produced leptons and hadrons. We compare our results with the experimental data for \epem\to\epem + hadrons at LEP2.Comment: 5 pages, 1 figure, presented at the LEPTRE meeting, Roma 200

    Sphincteroplasty of the Sphincter of Oddi in the Treatment of Benign Distal Obstructions of the Bile Duct

    Get PDF
    Seventy patients in whom sphincteroplasty was performed by an original technique are presented. In 65 cases the indication was stenosis of the sphincter of oddi, associated or not with cholelithiasis or hepatic hydatid disease. There were relative indications in another 5 patients. Sphincteroplasty was achieved with the aid of an original probe, and average length of the incision of the ampullary area was 28 mm

    Kinematical Limits on Higgs Boson Production via Gluon Fusion in Association with Jets

    Get PDF
    In this paper, we analyze the high-energy limits for Higgs boson plus two jet production. We consider two high-energy limits, corresponding to two different kinematic regions: a) the Higgs boson is centrally located in rapidity between the two jets, and very far from either jet; b) the Higgs boson is close to one jet in rapidity, and both of these are very far from the other jet. In both cases the amplitudes factorize into impact factors or coefficient functions connected by gluons exchanged in the t channel. Accordingly, we compute the coefficient function for the production of a Higgs boson from two off-shell gluons, and the impact factors for the production of a Higgs boson in association with a gluon or a quark jet. We include the full top quark mass dependence and compare this with the result obtained in the large top-mass limit.Comment: 35 pages, 6 figure

    Dijet Production at Hadron--Hadron Colliders in the BFKL Approach

    Full text link
    The production in high-energy hadron collisions of a pair of jets with large rapidity separation is studied in an improved BFKL formalism. By recasting the analytic solution of the BFKL equation as an explicit order-by-order sum over emitted gluons, the effects of phase space constraints and the running coupling are studied. Particular attention is paid to the azimuthal angle decorrelation of the jet pair. The inclusion of sub-leading effects significantly improves the agreement between the theoretical predictions and recent preliminary measurements from the Dzero collaboration.Comment: 19 pages LaTeX; one figure corrected; conclusions unchange

    NLO Higgs boson production plus one and two jets using the POWHEG BOX, MadGraph4 and MCFM

    Get PDF
    We present a next-to-leading order calculation of Higgs boson production plus one and two jets via gluon fusion interfaced to shower Monte Carlo programs, implemented according to the POWHEG method. For this implementation we have used a new interface of the POWHEG BOX with MadGraph4, that generates the codes for generic Born and real processes automatically. The virtual corrections have been taken from the MCFM code. We carry out a simple phenomenological study of our generators, comparing them among each other and with fixed next-to-leading order results.Comment: 27 pages, 21 figure

    Hopf algebras, coproducts and symbols: an application to Higgs boson amplitudes

    Full text link
    We show how the Hopf algebra structure of multiple polylogarithms can be used to simplify complicated expressions for multi-loop amplitudes in perturbative quantum field theory and we argue that, unlike the recently popularized symbol-based approach, the coproduct incorporates information about the zeta values. We illustrate our approach by rewriting the two-loop helicity amplitudes for a Higgs boson plus three gluons in a simplified and compact form involving only classical polylogarithms.Comment: 46 page

    Forward jets and forward WW-boson production at hadron colliders

    Get PDF
    In this talk we give a short review of forward jets and forward WW-boson production at hadron colliders, in view of the extraction of footprints of BFKL physics. We argue that at Tevatron energies, dijet production at large rapidity intervals is still subasymptotic with respect to the BFKL regime, thus the cross section is strongly dependent on the various cuts applied in the experimental setup. In addition, the choice of equal transverse momentum cuts on the tagging jets makes the cross section dependent on large logarithms of non-BFKL origin, and thus may spoil the BFKL analysis. For vector boson production in association with two jets, we argue that the configurations that are kinematically favoured tend to have the vector boson forward in rapidity. Thus W+2W + 2 jet production lends itself naturally to extensions to the high-energy limit.Comment: LaTeX, JHEP style, 10 pages, 3 figures. Based on a talk at EPS2001, Budapest, Hungar
