Abstract

Electroweak radiative corrections are computed for Higgs production through vector boson fusion, qq→qqH, which is one of the most promising channels for detecting and studying the Higgs boson at the LHC. Using soft-collinear effective theory, we obtain numerical results for the resummed logarithmic contributions to the hadronic cross section at next-to-leading logarithmic order. We compare our results to HAWK and find good agreement below 2 TeV where the logarithms do not dominate. The soft-collinear effective theory method is at its best in the high LHC energy domain where the corrections are found to be slightly larger than predicted by HAWK and by other one-loop fixed order approximations. This is one of the first tests of this formalism at the level of a hadronic cross section, and demonstrates the viability of obtaining electroweak corrections for generic processes without the need for difficult electroweak loop calculations.
