The weak boson fusion contribution to Higgs boson production is enhanced significantly by requiring a large invariant mass and rapidity separation between the associated jets. This induces large logarithmic corrections in the prediction for the gluon-fusion background, which are incorporated to all orders within the High Energy Jets (HEJ) formalism. We present HEJ predictions for the gluon-fusion production of a Higgs boson in association with at least two jets, matched to fixed-order predictions at leading and next-to-leading order and including corrections due to finite top and bottom quark masses.
