High Energy Physics Seminar

Speaker: Terrance Figy, Wichita State University

Title:  “Stress-testing the VBF Approximation with Higgs Boson Plus Three Jet Production”

Refreshments available at 1:30 pm.

Date: Tue, 26 Sep 2017, 1:45 pm – 2:45 pm

Type: Seminar

Location: 1400 BPS Bldg.

I will discuss the implementation of the next-to-leading order corrections in perturbative QCD for electroweak Higgs boson plus three jet production (EW H+3 jets) into Herwig 7. I will present a comparison VBFNLO implementation of EW H+3 jets (t-channel approximation) to the Herwig 7 implementation (full calculation) using VBF acceptance cuts.
