Description

I will present an update of the theoretical predictions for the production cross sections of the Standard Model Higgs boson at the Tevatron collider. The two main search channels will be discussed, the gluon-gluon fusion mechanism gg → H and the Higgs-strahlung process q qbar → VH with V=W/Z, including all relevant higher order QCD and electroweak corrections in perturbation theory. A thorough analysis of the various uncertainties affecting these predictions will then follow.
