Matching 5F and 4F scheme computations of bottom-initiated Higgs production

Stefano Forte, Davide Napoletano, Maria Ubiali

This is the development page for the bbHFONLL project. bbHFONLL is a C++ code for the computation of the total cross-section for Higgs boson production in quark-bottom fusion using the so-called FONLL method. The latter allows one to perform a consistent matching of the five-flavor scheme (5FS), in which the b-quark is treated as a massless parton, to the four-flavor scheme (4FS), in which the b-quark is treated as massless final state. The cross section is computed up to next-to-next-to-leading-log accuracy in the 5FS combined with next-to-leading-order (as3) 4FS accuracy. The code is based on the following papers:
