A subtraction scheme for massive QED


Engel, T; Signer, A; Ulrich, Y (2019). A subtraction scheme for massive QED. arXiv.org 1909.10244, University of Zurich.

Abstract

We present an extension of the FKS subtraction scheme beyond next-to-leading order to deal with soft singularities in fully differential calculations within QED with massive fermions. After a detailed discussion of the next-to-next-to-leading order case, we show how to extend the scheme to even higher orders in perturbation theory. As an application we discuss the computation of the next-to-next-to-leading order QED corrections to the muon decay and present differential results with full electron mass dependence
