Title: Mass dependence of Higgs production at large transverse momentum

Abstract

The transverse momentum distribution of the Higgs at large PT is complicated by its dependence on three important energy scales: PT, the top quark mass mt, and the Higgs mass mH. A strategy for simplifying the calculation of the cross section at large PT is to calculate only the leading terms in its expansion in m t 2 / P T 2 and/or m H 2 / P T 2 . The expansion of the cross section in inverse powers of PT is complicated by logarithms of PT and by mass singularities. In this paper, we consider the top-quark loop contribution to the subprocess qq¯¯ → H + g at leading order in αs. We show that the leading power of 1/ P T 2 can be expressed in the form of a factorization formula that separates the large scale PT from the scale of the masses. All the dependence on mt and mH can be factorized into a distribution amplitude for tt¯ in the Higgs, a distribution amplitude for tt¯ in a real gluon, and an endpoint contribution. The factorization formula can be used to simplify calculations of the PT distribution at large PT to next-to-leading order in αmore » s. Here, the results are readily applied to the qg process via a straightforward analytical continuation.« less
