dc.description.abstractWe consider electroweak Higgs plus three jets production at NLO QCD beyond strict VBF acceptance cuts. We investigate, for the first time, how accurate the VBF approximation is in these regions and within perturbative uncertainties by a detailed comparison of full and approximate calculations. We find that a rapidity gap between the tagging jets guarantees a good approximation, while an invariant mass cut alone is not sufficient, which needs to be confronted with experimental choices. We also find that a significant part of the QCD corrections can be attributed to Higgs-Strahlungs-type topologies.en_US

M. R. would like to acknowledge the contribution of the COST Action CA16108. S. P. acknowledges partial support by the COSTAction CA16201 PARTICLEFACE. This work used the Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE), which is supported by National Science Foundation Grant No. ACI-1548562 [58]. This work utilized computing resources provided at IPPP, Durham. This work also utilized both the Open Science Grid and Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) Stampede 2 to perform event generation runs through allocations TG-TRA150015 and TG-PHY160001. T. F. would like to thank Mats Rynge for assistance with setting up event generation runs on the Open Science Grid, which was made possible through the XSEDE Extended Collaborative Service (ECSS) program. T. F. would like to thank Juan Cruz-Martinez, Jonas Lindert, and Nigel Glover for valuable discussions. M. R. would like to thank Amon Engemann for helpful code comparisons. M. S. was supported by the Swedish Research Council (Contract Nos. 2012-02744 and 2016-05996), and in part by the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme (Grant agreement No. 668679).en_US
