Top-Quark Production And Qcd, Nikolaos Kidonakis, Ben D. Pecjak Jul 2012

Top-Quark Production And Qcd, Nikolaos Kidonakis, Ben D. Pecjak

Faculty Publications

We review theoretical calculations for top-quark production that include complete next-to-leading-order QCD corrections as well as higher-order soft-gluon corrections from threshold resummation. We discuss in detail the differences between various approaches that have appeared in the literature and review results for top-quark total cross sections and differential distributions at the Tevatron and the LHC.
