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.


Theoretical Status Of The Top Quark Cross Section, Nikolaos Kidonakis, Ramona Vogt Jun 2005

Theoretical Status Of The Top Quark Cross Section, Nikolaos Kidonakis, Ramona Vogt

Faculty Publications

We discuss the most recent calculations of the top quark total cross section and transverse momentum distributions at the Tevatron and the LHC. These calculations include the soft-gluon corrections at next-to-next-to-leading order (NNLO). The soft NNLO corrections stabilize the scale dependence of the cross section.
