Calculation of the transverse parton distribution functions at next-to-next-to-leading order


Gehrmann, Thomas; Lübbert, Thomas; Yang, Li Lin (2014). Calculation of the transverse parton distribution functions at next-to-next-to-leading order. Journal of High Energy Physics, 2014(6):1-34.

Abstract

We describe the perturbative calculation of the transverse parton distribution functions in all partonic channels up to next-to-next-to-leading order based on a gauge invariant operator definition. We demonstrate the cancellation of light-cone divergences and show that universal process-independent transverse parton distribution functions can be obtained through a refactorization. Our results serve as the first explicit higher-order calculation of these functions starting from first principles, and can be used to perform next-to-next-to-next-to-leading logarithmic q T resummation for a large class of processes at hadron colliders.
