Transverse energy-energy correlations in NLO in alpha_s at the LHC

Session: Morning Session - VII
We compute the transverse energy-energy correlation (TEEC) and its asymmetry (AEEC) in NLO in pp collisions at the LHC for a centre of mass energy of 7 TeV.. We show that the TEEC and AEEC are insensitive to the QCD factorization and renormalization scales, PDF's, as well as to underlying event and hadronization effects. Thus they show great potential for a determination of the strong coupling constant at the LHC.
