Title: Higgs boson gluon-fusion production beyond threshold in N 3LO QCD

Abstract

In this study, we compute the gluon fusion Higgs boson cross-section at N 3LO through the second term in the threshold expansion. This calculation constitutes a major milestone towards the full N 3LO cross section. Our result has the best formal accuracy in the threshold expansion currently available, and includes contributions from collinear regions besides subleading corrections from soft and hard regions, as well as certain logarithmically enhanced contributions for general kinematics. We use our results to perform a critical appraisal of the validity of the threshold approximation at N 3LO in perturbative QCD.
