Title: Fully differential Higgs boson pair production in association with a Z boson at next-to-next-to-leading order in QCD

Abstract

Here, we present a fully differential next-to-next-to-leading order QCD calculation of the Higgs pair production in association with a Z boson at hadron colliders, which is important for probing the trilinear Higgs self-coupling. The next-to-next-to-leading-order corrections enhance the next-to-leading order total cross sections by a factor of 1.2–1.5, depending on the collider energy, and change the shape of next-to-leading order kinematic distributions. We discuss how to determine the trilinear Higgs self-coupling using our results.
