# Higgs Boson Production at Hadron Colliders: Differential Cross Section Through Next-to-Next-to-Leading Order

## Abstract

The authors present a calculation of the fully differential cross section for Higgs boson production in the gluon fusion channel through next-to-next-to-leading order in perturbative QCD. They apply the method introduced in [1] to compute double real emission corrections. The calculation permits arbitrary cuts on the final state in the reaction hh {yields} H + X. it can be easily extended to include decays of the Higgs boson into observable final states. In this Letter, they discuss the most important features of the calculation, and present some examples of physical applications that illustrate the range of observables that can be studied using the result. They compute the NNLO rapidity distribution of the Higgs boson, and also calculate the NNLO rapidity distribution with a veto on jet activity.
