NNLO QCD subtraction for top-antitop production in the $q\bar{q}$ channel


Abelof, Gabriel; Gehrmann-De Ridder, Aude; Maierhoefer, Philipp; Pozzorini, Stefano (2014). NNLO QCD subtraction for top-antitop production in the $q\bar{q}$ channel. Journal of High Energy Physics, 1408:035.

Abstract

We present the computation of the double real and real-virtual contributions to top-antitop pair production in the quark-antiquark channel at leading colour. The TeX → TeX amplitudes contributing to the real-virtual part are computed with OpenLoops, and their numerical stability in the soft and collinear regions is found to be sufficiently high to perform a realistic NNLO calculation in double precision. The subtraction terms required at real-real and real-virtual levels are constructed within the antenna subtraction formalism extended to deal with the presence of coloured massive final state particles. We show that those subtraction terms approximate the real-real and real-virtual matrix elements in all their singular limits.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
