The thrust distribution in electron-positron annihilation is a classical precision QCD observable. Using renormalization group (RG) evolution in Laplace space, we perform the resummation of logarithmically enhanced corrections in the dijet limit, T → 1 to next-to-next-to-leading logarithmic (NNLL) accuracy. We independently derive the two-loop soft function for the thrust distribution and extract an analytical expression for the NNLL resummation coefficient g 3. Our findings confirm earlier NNLL resummation results for the thrust distribution in soft-collinear effective theory. To combine the resummed expressions with the fixed-order results, we derive the log( R)-matching and R-matching of the NNLL approximation to the fixed-order NNLO distribution.
