N3LO QCD cross sections supercede those of NNLO+NNLL QCD

N3LO

  • Cross sections are calculated by Zürich group at N3LO QCD and NLO EW accuracies [Anastasiou:2016cez].
  • QCD scales: μ=μFR=MH/2 varied in the range of [MH/4,MH].
  • Theory uncertainty:
    • "±Theory" uncertainty is interpreted as a flat 100% confidence level.
    • "TH Gaussian" uncertainty is interpreted as a one-sigma range. It is estimated by max{+TH,-TH}/sqrt{3} as discussed in CERN Report 4 ggF section.
    • "TH Gaussian" uncertainty should be used for the construction of the workspace in the current LHC-HCG prescription.
  • PDF set: PDF4LHC15_nnlo_100

NNLO+NNLL

  • Cross sections are calculated with dFG program at NNLO+NNLL QCD and NLO EW accuracies.
  • Calculations are the same as CERN Report 3 (i.e. top, bottom and charm quark effects are taken into account), except it is in NWA (CPS in CERN Report 3).
  • Program: dFG
  • QCD scales: μ=μFR=MH, uncertainty estimated in the range 1/2 < μ/MH < 2 with 1/2 < μFR < 2 constraint.
    • No additional THU nor PU uncertainties assigned.
  • PDF set: PDF4LHC15_nnlo_30

WH Process

  • Cross sections are calculated at NNLO QCD and NLO EW accuracies.
    • Calculations are the same as CERN Report 3, except photon-induced contribution (see below).
    • Total cross section is calculated from WH→lνH cross section by subtracting photon-induced cross section, and then scaled via BR(W→lν)=0.108535 in NLO EW accuracy.
  • Program: NNLO QCD (VH@NNLO) and NLO EW (HAWK).
  • QCD scales: μ=μFR=MVH=(pV+pH)2 for QCD part and μ=μFR=MVH+MH for EW part. Uncertainty is estimated in the range 1/3 < μ/MVH < 3 (μF and μR are varied independently).
    • No additional THU nor PU uncertainties assigned.
  • PDF set: PDF4LHC15_nnlo_mc (QCD part) and NNPDF2.3QED (EW part).
  • Photon-induced contribution of O(5%)
    • NOT included for total cross section (agrees with CERN Report 3 numbers within 1%).
    • Included in cross sections for dedicated WH→lνH (l=e,μ or τ) process (we strongly recommend to use these numbers for dedicated analyses).

ZH Process

  • Cross sections are calculated at NNLO QCD and NLO EW accuracies.
    • Calculations are the same as CERN Report 3, except photon-induced contribution (see below).
    • Total cross section is calculated from ZH→llH,ννH cross sections by subtracting photon-induced cross section, and then scaled via BR(Z→ll)=0.0335962 and BR(Z→νν)=0.201030 in NLO EW accuracy.
    • gg→ZH (box-diagram) occurs as a part of NNLO QCD correction and included in the total cross section.
    • ZH cross section went up by +1~2%, due to +22~16% for √s = 7-14 TeV, due to increase in gg→ZH for NLO+NLL QCD corrections (NLO in CERN Report 3).
  • Program: NNLO QCD (VH@NNLO) and NLO EW (HAWK).
  • QCD scales: μ=μFR=MVH=(pV+pH)2 for QCD part and μ=μFR=MVH+MH for EW part. Uncertainty is estimated in the range 1/3 < μ/MVH < 3 (μF and μR are varied independently).
    • No additional THU nor PU uncertainties assigned.
  • PDF set: PDF4LHC15_nnlo_mc (QCD part) and NNPDF2.3QED (EW part).
  • Photon-induced contribution of O(1%) or below
    • NOT included for total cross section (agrees with CERN Report 3 numbers).
    • Included in cross sections for dedicated ZH→llH,ννH (l=e,μ or τ) processes (we strongly recommend to use these numbers for dedicated analyses).

gg→ZH Cross Section

  • ZH production has two distinct sources of gg→ZH:
    1. a genuine NNLO contribution to what called “Drell-Yan-like”, where ZH is accompanied by two-parton radiation, gg→HZ+qqbar.
    2. top- and bottom-loop induced contribution without any additional partons in the final state.
  • What is usually meant by gg→HZ below is 2) above.
  • The statement that “all but gg→HZ” is the same as “qq- and qg-initiated” is correct only through NLO QCD.
  • For separate cross sections and associated QCD scale uncertainties in qq/qg→ZH(+gg→HZ+qqbar) and gg→ZH for NLO/LO MC normalization, use
    • σ(all but gg→ZH) = σ(pp→ZH)@(NNLO QCD + NLO EW, NLO+NLL QCD gg→ZH) - σ(gg→ZH)@(NLO+NLL QCD),
    • Separate QCD scale uncertainties are σ(all but gg→ZH) or on σ(gg→ZH) are calculated with VH@NNLO program.
  • For MH=125.0 GeV and at √s=8 TeV,

bbH Process

  • The cross sections are the Santander matched numbers with 5FS (NNLO) and 4FS (NLO). No EW corrections.
  • Program: SusHi for 5FS and dedicated version of MadGraph5_aMC@NLO for 4FS.
  • QCD scales:
    • 5FS: μF=MH/4, μR=MH,
    • 4FS: μFR=(MH+2Mb)/4,
    • scale with 7-point variation by a factor of 2 in both cases.
  • Uncertainties
    • 5FS: Linearly added scale + (PDF⊕αs) + Mb + μb (PDF and αs uncertainties are added in quadrature).
    • 4FS: Only scale uncertainties (as they are the dominant ones) and no PDF uncertainties are included.
  • PDF set
    • 5FS: Dedicated sets produced with APFEL are used which are generated from the PDF4LHC15_nnlo_100 sets taken below the Mb-threshold and evolved upwards, while generating a b-PDF set at high scale.
    • 4FS: PDF4LHC15_nlo_nf4_100

W-associated (gb→tHW)

  • Cross sections are calculated at NLO QCD accuracy (no NLO EW correction) in 5FS
    • With DR2 (Diagram Removal plus interference) described in [Demartin:2016axk]
    • σ(tHW-) = σ(tbarHW+) = (σ(tHW-)+σ(tbarHW+))/2
  • Program: MadGraph5_aMC@NLO
  • QCD scales: μ=μFR=(Mtop+MH+MW)/2, uncertainty estimated in the range 1/2 < μ/{(Mtop+MH+MW)/2} < 2 (with 1/2 < μFR < 2 constraint).
  • PDF set:
    • PDF4LHC15_nlo_30_pdfas (5FS)
