# The $q_T$ subtraction method for top quark production at hadron colliders

Bonciani, Roberto; Catani, Stefano; Grazzini, Massimiliano; Sargsyan, Hayk; Torre, Alessandro (2015). The $q_T$ subtraction method for top quark production at hadron colliders. European Physical Journal C - Particles and Fields, 75:581.

## Abstract

We consider QCD radiative corrections to top-quark pair production at hadron colliders. We use the $q_T$ subtraction formalism to perform a fully-differential computation for this process. Our calculation is accurate up to the next-to-leading order in QCD perturbation theory and it includes all the flavour off-diagonal partonic channels at the next-to-next-to-leading order. We present a comparison of our numerical results with those obtained with the publicly available numerical programs MCFM and Top++.
