Description

Techniques and results concerning soft gluon resummation at the level of total and differential cross sections in top-quark pair production at hadron colliders are presented. In particular, the theoretical framework underlying resummation at NLO+NNLL level for differential cross sections is briefly review, and the consequences for observables such as the total inclusive pair-production cross section, the invariant mass and transverse momentum distributions, and the forward-backward asymmetry are discussed.
