In the Standard Model, the Higgs coupling to gluons is almost entirely induced by top quark loops. We derive the logarithmic structure of Higgs production in association with two jets. Just like in the one-jet case, the transverse momentum distributions exhibit logarithms of the top quark mass and can be used to test the nature of the loop–induced Higgs coupling to gluons. Using Higgs decays to W bosons and to tau leptons, we show how the corresponding analyses hugely benefit from the second jet in the relevant signal rate as well as in the background rejection.
