Diffractive exclusive production of heavy quark pairs at high energy proton-proton collisions
Summary, in English
We discuss exclusive double diffractive (EDD) production of heavy quark - heavy antiquark pairs at high energies. Differential distributions for cc̄ at √s = 1.96 GeV and for bb̄ at √s = 14 TeV are shown and discussed. Irreducible leading-order bb̄ background to Higgs production is calculated in several kinematical variables. The signal-to-background ratio is shown and several improvements are suggested.
