ABSTRACT: I review recent theoretical developments in perturbative QCD, with particular attention fixed order calculations of collider processes, and to shower Monte Carlo event simulation.Journal of Physics Conference Series 05/2008; 110(1):2004.  [Show abstract] [Hide abstract]
ABSTRACT: We discuss results for diboson plus two jets production processes at the LHC at NLO QCD. Issues related to the scale choice are reviewed. We focus on the distributions of the invariant mass and rapidity separation of the two hardest jets and show, for $W^\pm \gamma jj$ and $Z\gamma jj$ production, how the contribution from the radiative decays of the massive gauge bosons can be significantly reduced.10/2014;  [Show abstract] [Hide abstract]
ABSTRACT: The most likely spin assignments of the recently discovered 126 GeV resonance are spin 0 or 2. In order to distinguish between the two, we construct an effective Lagrangian model that comprises interactions of a spin2 electroweak singlet or triplet state with the Standard Model gauge bosons. Within this model, cross sections and differential distributions are calculated and implemented within the Monte Carlo program Vbfnlo, which simulates vectorbosonfusion processes at hadron colliders at nexttoleading order QCD accuracy. We study the phenomenology of spin2 resonances produced in vectorbosonfusion processes at the LHC. Specifically, we consider light Higgslike spin2 resonances decaying into two photons and show how angular distributions allow us to distinguish between a Standard Model Higgs and a spin2 resonance. We also investigate the characteristics of heavy spin2 resonances that decay into two weak gauge bosons, leading to a fourlepton final state.Physical review D: Particles and fields 03/2013; 87(5).
