Abe et al., Phys.Rev. D56 (1997) 3811 Expectations at LHC:  eff ~ 20 mb (T. Sjostrand, private communication) Longitudinal correlations in double-parton PDF can have sizable effect (Snigirev, Korotkikh hep-ph/ , Treleani et al. hep-ph/ )

3 How I estimate bkg. from double parton interactions All study is done at particle (PYTHIA) level so far –DY and di-jets were generated separately with EU switched off, MSTP(81)=0 –Di-jet events passed VBF selections at particle level at least two jets p T > 20 GeV,  < 5.0  j1j2 > 4.2,  j1  j2 < 0 M j1j2 > 1 TeV –Z+jets from one pp interaction were generated with ALPGEN+PYTHIA using MLM prescription for parton- jet matching. Soft VBF pre-selections was done at ALPGEN level. UE is ON, MSTP(81)=4, DWT setting. To be repeated with T.

4 T. Sjostrand option “generate DY with full UE generate the di-jet with MSTP(81)=0 (UE is OFF). Here at first remove all low pT particles, say below 1 GeV. Then add a few of them back in, chosen to ensure that the retained event balances pT to good enough precision. (This is easy to do iteratively, each time adding the particle that reduces the length of the pTmiss vector most.) Graft event 2 into event 1” Best, Torbjorn

8 Conclusions and plans Z+jets background from multiple parton and proton interactions is not negligible in qqH->  analysis. ~ 20 % of dominant background Z+jets after VBF selections.Z+jets background from multiple parton and proton interactions is not negligible in qqH->  analysis. ~ 20 % of dominant background Z+jets after VBF selections. We should think how to measure it and how to reduce it. Some ideas how to reduce itWe should think how to measure it and how to reduce it. Some ideas how to reduce it –remove events with back-to-back  –require at least one jet within the tracker acceptance and check if jet and lepton have the same vertex consider Z+j + j-j bkg. from DPS (thanks to D. Zeppenfeld for pointing it out). In qqH, H->  study (D.Z., D. Rainwater, hep-ph/ ) the DPS from  j + j-j was found to be importantconsider Z+j + j-j bkg. from DPS (thanks to D. Zeppenfeld for pointing it out). In qqH, H->  study (D.Z., D. Rainwater, hep-ph/ ) the DPS from  j + j-j was found to be important –here the Sjostrand option to produce DPS with PYTHIA6.3 is realy needed
