Title: Precision Physics at 
the LHC

: The path to the exploration of 
the Higgs sector

Abstract: I will discuss the main mechanism for Higgs production at hadron colliders,
gluon fusion. Very precise predictions are currently available, up to N^3LO
in perturbative QCD, but the theory error is still around 5%. I will analyse the
components of this error, and show the steps that we are undertaking to
further reduce it in view of the very accurate measures that are expected in
some of the Higgs channels.
