200.1 H+ jet production, mt = finite, process 200

This process represents the production of a Higgs boson in association with a single jet based on refs. [123456]. Decay modes are currently unsupported/untested. The top-quark mass is taken into account exactly for the Born and real-emission parts, as well as for the singular part of the virtual corrections. The real emission calculation is based on the one-loop, Higgs boson + 4 parton calculations with full quark masss effects of ref.[56].

The finite part of the two-loop virtual corrections can be computed in different ways by setting the input file parameter mtex.

This process is therefore calculable at leading LO and at next-to-leading order NLO (using an approximation for the two loop matrix element). Full NLO calculations (with the exact two-loop matrix element) have been performed in refs. [??7].
