Abstract

We present next-to-leading-order QCD predictions for cross sections and for a comprehensive set of
distributions in γγ þ 2-jet production at the Large Hadron Collider. We consider the contributions from
loop amplitudes for two photons and four gluons, but we neglect top quarks. We use BLACKHAT together
with SHERPA to carry out the computation. We use a Frixione cone isolation for the photons. We study
standard sets of cuts on the jets and the photons and also sets of cuts appropriate for studying backgrounds
to Higgs-boson production via vector-boson fusion.
