Abstract

We study the single jet inclusive cross section up to next-to-next-to
leading order in perturbative QCD, implemented in the parton-level event
generator NNLOJET. Our results are fully differential in the jet transverse
momentum and rapidity, and we apply fiducial cuts for comparison with
the available ATLAS 7 TeV 4.5 fb−1 data for jet radius R = 0.4. For
the theoretical calculation, we employ the antenna subtraction method to
reliably cancel all infrared divergences present at intermediate stages of
the calculation. We present all results using the individual jet transverse
momentum µR = µF ∼ pT as the renormalization and factorization scale for
each jet’s contribution to the single jet inclusive cross section. Finally, we
consider the differences between our predictions using this scale choice to
those for the leading jet transverse momentum scale choice, with reference
to the ATLAS data.
