SM Higgs production cross sections at various centre-of-mass energies (update in CERN Report4 2016)


  • Cross sections reported in CERN Report 4. See here and here here for previous numbers in CERN Report 3.

  • You can find figures at our main page or at gallery.

gluon-gluon Fusion Process

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.

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
