Abstract

Abstract The cross section for Higgs + jet production in bottom quark annihilation is calculated through NLO QCD. The five-flavour scheme is used to derive this contribution to the Higgs + jet production cross section which becomes numerically important in the MSSM for large values of tan β . We present numerical results for a proton collider with 14 TeV center-of-mass energy. The NLO matrix elements for d σ / d p T are then combined with the total inclusive cross section in order to derive the integrated cross section with a maximum cut on p T at next-to-next-to-leading order.
