### QCD: from the Tevatron to the LHC

James Stirling

IPPP, University of Durham

- Overview
- Perturbative QCD – precision physics
- ‘Forward’ (non-perturbative) processes
- Summary

Model, Fit, Extrapolate & Pray!

Scattering processes at high energy hadron colliders can be classified as either HARD or SOFT

Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD) is the underlying theory for all such processes, but the approach (and the level of understanding) is very different for the two cases

For HARD processes, e.g. W or high-ET jet production, the rates and event properties can be predicted with some precision using perturbation theory

For SOFT processes, e.g. the total cross section or diffractive processes, the rates and properties are dominated by non-perturbative QCD effects, which are much less well understood

where X=W, Z, H, high-ET jets, SUSY sparticles, black hole, …, and Q is the ‘hard scale’ (e.g. = MX), usuallyF = R = Q, and is known …

- to some fixed order in pQCD and EWpt, e.g.
- or in some leading logarithm approximation
- (LL, NLL, …) to all orders via resummation

what limits the precision of the predictions?- the order of the perturbative expansion
- the uncertainty in the input parton distribution functions
- example: σ(Z) @ LHC

σpdf ±3%, σpt ± 2%

whereas for gg→H :

NNLO: the perturbative frontier

- The NNLO coefficient C is not yet known, the curves show guesses C=0 (solid), C=±B2/A (dashed) → the scale dependence and hence σthis significantly reduced
- Other advantages of NNLO:
- better matching of partons hadrons
- reduced power corrections
- better description of final state kinematics (e.g. transverse momentum)

jets at NNLO

- 2 loop, 2 parton final state
- | 1 loop |2, 2 parton final state
- 1 loop, 3 parton final states
- or 2 +1 final state
- tree, 4 parton final states
- or 3 + 1 parton final states
- or 2 + 2 parton final state

rapid progress in last two years [many authors]

- many 2→2 scattering processes with up to one off-shell leg now calculated at two loops
- … to be combined with the tree-level 2→4, the one-loop 2→3 and the self-interference of the one-loop 2→2 to yield physical NNLO cross sections
- this is still some way away but lots of ideas so expect progress soon!

summary of NNLO calculations

- p + p → jet + X *; in progress, see previous
- p + p → γ + X; in principle, subset of the jet calculation but issues regarding photon fragmentation, isolation etc
- p + p → QQbar + X; requires extension of above to non-zero fermion masses
- p + p → (γ*, W, Z) + X *; van Neerven et al, Harlander and Kilgore corrected (2002)
- p + p → (γ*, W, Z) + X differential rapidity distribution *; Anastasiou, Dixon, Melnikov (2003)
- p + p → H + X; Harlander and Kilgore, Anastasiou and Melnikov(2002-3)

Note: knowledge of processes * needed for a full NNLO global parton distribution fit

HO corrections to Higgs cross section- the HO pQCD corrections to (gg→H) are large (more diagrams, more colour)
- can improve NNLO precision slightly by resumming additional soft/collinear higher-order logarithms
- example: σ(MH=120 GeV) @ LHC

the differences between pdf sets needs to be better understood!

Djouadi & Ferrag, hep-ph/0310209

Forum04

why do ‘best fit’ pdfs and errors differ?

- different data sets in fit
- different subselection of data
- different treatment of exp. sys. errors
- different choice of
- tolerance to define fi(CTEQ: Δχ2=100, Alekhin: Δχ2=1)
- factorisation/renormalisation scheme/scale
- Q02
- parametric form Axa(1-x)b[..] etc
- αS
- treatment of heavy flavours
- theoretical assumptions about x→0,1 behaviour
- theoretical assumptions about sea flavour symmetry
- evolution and cross section codes (removable differences!)

Work continues to refine the predictions for ‘Sudakov’ processes, e.g. for the Higgs or Z transverse momentum distribution, where resummation of large logarithms of the form

n,m αSn log(M2/qT2)m

is necessary at small qT, to be matched with fixed-order QCD at large qT

Production of jet pairs with equal and opposite large rapidity (‘Mueller-Navelet’ jets) as a test of QCD BFKL physics

- cf. F2 ~ x as x →0 at HERA
- many tests:
- y dependence, azimuthal angle decorrelation, accompanying minjets etc
- replace forward jets by forward W, b-quarks etc

forward physics

- ‘classical’ forward physics – σtot ,σel ,σSD,σDD, etc– a challenge for non-perturbative QCD models. Vast amount of low-energy data (ISR, Tevatron, …) to test and refine such models
- output → deeper understanding of QCD, precision luminosity measurement (from optical theorem L ~ Ntot2/Nel)
- ‘new’ forward physics – a potentially important tool for precision QCD and New Physics Studies at Tevatron and LHC

p + p → p X p orp + p → M X M

where = rapidity gap = hadron-free zone, and X = χc, H, tt, SUSY particles, etc etc

advantages? good MX resolution from Mmiss (~ 1 GeV?) (CMS-TOTEM)

disadvantages? low event rate – the price to pay for gaps to survive the ‘hostile QCD environment’

summary

‘QCD at hadron colliders’ means …

- performing precision calculations (LO→NLO→NNLO ) for signals and backgrounds, cross sections and distributions – still much work to do! (cf. EWPT @ LEP)
- refining event simulation tools (e.g. PS+NLO)
- extending the calculational frontiers, e.g. to hard + diffractive/forward processes, multiple scattering, particle distributions and correlations etc. etc.
- particularly important and interesting is p + p → p X p – challenge for experiment and theory

tensions within the global fit?

- with dataset A in fit, Δχ2=1 ; with A and B in fit, Δχ2=?
- ‘tensions’ between data sets arise, for example,
- between DIS data sets (e.g. H and N data)
- when jet and Drell-Yan data are combined with DIS data

Forum04

as small x data are systematically removed from the MRST global fit, the quality of the fit improves until stability is reached at around x ~0.005 (MRST hep-ph/0308087)

Q. Is fixed–order DGLAP insufficient for small-x DIS data?!

Δ = improvement in χ2 to remaining data / # of data points removed

Forum04

the stability of the small-x fit can be recovered by adding to the fit empirical contributions of the form

... with coefficients A, B found to be O(1) (and different for the NLO, NNLO fits);

the starting gluon is still very negative at small x however
