After the discovery of the Higgs boson with LHC Run-1 data, its production cross sections have been measured at the increasing centre-of-mass energies that were reached in LHC proton-proton collisions. Comparisons with theoretical calculations so far confirm the predictions of the Standard Model. The diphoton decay channel offers a clean final state and relatively high event rate, allowing both the measurement of total cross section in a fiducial phase space defined at particle level with a small dataset, as well as precise differential cross sections with larger datasets. These measurements give the possibility of precise comparisons with Standard Model predictions.
