  2. In the proton tagging mode the dominantHin principlecan be observeddirectly . • certain regions of the MSSM parameter space are especiallyproton tagging friendly (at large tan  and M , S/B ) Myths For the channel LIBs are well known and incorporated in the (DPE )MCs: Exclusive LO - production (mass-suppressed) + gg misident+ soft&hard PP collisions. Reality (very small) The complete background calculations are still in progress (uncomfortably & unusuallylarge high-order QCD and b-quark mass effects). About a dozen various sources : known (DKMOR, Andy, Marek, CMS-Totem note ) &  admixture of |Jz|=2 production. (Not in MCs)  NLO radiative contributions (hard blob and screened gluons) (Not fully in MCs)  NLLO one-loop box diagram (mass- unsuppressed, cut-nonreconstructible)(Not in MCs)  b-quark mass effects in dijet events – (most troublesome theoretically)still incomplete potentially, the largest source of uncertainties!(LO in Exhume) (Andy ?)

  8. A little bit of (theoretical) jargon Helicity amplitudes for the binary bgd processes g( g g helicities of ‘active gluons’ S – Jz=0, LO B- domint. Jz=2 (double) helicities of produced quarks • convenient to considerseparately • q-helicity conserving ampt (HCA) and q-helicity non-conserving ampt(HNCA) • do not interfere, can be treated independently, • allows to avoid double counting (in particular, on the MC stage) Symmetry argumts (BKSO-94) forJz=0 the Born HCAvanishes, (usually, HCA is the dominant helicity configuration.)  for large angles HNCA (Jz=2, HCA)

  9. in terms of the fashionable MHVrules (inspired by the behaviour in the twistor space) only (+ - ; + -) J_z=2, HCA (-+ ; -+ /+-) an advantageous property of the large angle amplitudes • allHNCA (Jz=0, Jz=2, all orders in ) are suppressed by • all HC ampts ((Jz=0, Jz=2, all orders ) are \propto  vanish at (z) rotational invariance around q-direction (Jz=2, PP-case only)  an additional numerical smallness ( 0.1-0.2 ) recall: to suppress t-channel singularities in the bgds LOHCAvanishes in the Jz=0 case (valid only for the Born amplitude) Jz=0 suppressionisremovedbythe presence of an additional (real/ virtual) gluon (BKSO-94)

  11. mass-suppressed Jz=0 contribution  theoreticallymost challenging(uncomfortablylarge higher-ordereffects) • naively Born formula would give0.06  • however, various higher-order effects are essential :  running b-quark mass Single Log effects ( ) the so-called non-SudakovDouble Log effects , corrections of order (studied in FKM-97 for the case of at Jz=0 ) Guidance based on the experience with QCD effects in . •  DLeffects can be reliably summed up(FKM-97 , M. Melles, Stirling, Khoze 99-00 ). •  Complete one-loop result is known (G. Jikia et al. 96-00 ) • complete calculation of SL effects ( drastically affects the result) 3F=

  12. bad news:violently oscillating leading term in the DL non- Sudakov form-factor: • (≈2.5) •  DL contribution exceeds the Born term; strong dependence on the NLLO, scale, • running mass…. effects • No complete SL calculations currently available. Fq= HNC contribution rapidly decreases with increasing M Currently the best bet: : Fq ≈ with c≈1/2. Taken literally factor of two larger than the ‘naïve’ Born term. Cautiously : accuracy, not better than a factor of 4 A lot of further theoretical efforts is needed A.Shuvaev et al., E.W.N. Glover et al.

  14. How hard should be radiation in order to override Jz=0 selection rule ? (classical infrared behaviour) as well known neglecting quark mass (a consequence of Low-Barnett-Kroll theorem, generalized to QCD ) the relative probability of the Mercedes –like qqg configuration for Jz=0 radiative bgd process becomes unusually large  marked contrast to the Higgs-> bb (quasi-two-jet- like) events.  charged multiplicity difference between the H->bb signal and the Mercedes like bbg – bgd: for M120, N ≈7, Nrises with increasing M. hopefully, clearly pronounced 3-jet events can be eliminated by the CD,  can be useful for bgd calibration purposes. Exceptions:radiation in the beam direction;  radiation in the b- directions. DKMOR-02, KMR-07
