The Z boson a_T distribution at hadron colliders
We provide a theoretical study of a novel variable introduced in Ref. [1] to study the transverse momentum of the Z boson at hadron colliders. The variable we consider has experimental advantages

The Z boson transverse momentum, p Z T , can be decomposed into two components, aT and aL, that are transverse and parallel, respectively, to the di-lepton thrust axis. Using the aT distribution of Z
The aT distribution of the Z boson at hadron colliders.
We provide the first theoretical study of a novel variable, aT, proposed in ref. (1) as a more accurate probe of the region of low transverse momentum pT, for the Z boson pT distribution at hadron
Z boson transverse momentum spectrum from the lepton angular distributions
In view of recent discussions concerning the possibly limiting energy resolution systematics on the measurement of the Z boson transverse momentum distribution at hadron colliders, we propose a novel
Infrared QCD resummations at hadron colliders
In this thesis we study two different processes at hadron colliders: Z-boson production and dijet production with a jet veto. Our calculations focus on the resummation of logarithmically enhanced
Probing the low transverse momentum domain of Z production with novel variables
A bstractThe measurement of the low transverse momentum region of vector boson production in Drell-Yan processes has long been invaluable to testing our knowledge of QCD dynamics both beyond
Optimisation of variables for studying dilepton transverse momentum distributions at hadron colliders
In future measurements of the dilepton (Z/γ∗) transverse momentum, QT, at both the Tevatron and LHC, the achievable bin widths and the ultimate precision of the measurements will be limited by
Accurate QCD predictions for new variables to study dilepton transverse momentum
We report on the computation of the angle-between-leptons distribution in Drell-Yan processes. More precisely we study the recently introduced variable phi*, which provides us with a more accurate
The qT and ∆ϕ spectra in W and Z production at the LHC at N3LL′+N2LO
Abstract The production of weak gauge bosons, W± and Z, are at the core of the LHC precision measurement program. Their transverse momentum spectra as well as their pairwise ratios are key
Phenomenology of Electroweak Bosons at Hadron Colliders with Novel Variables
We review the phenomenology of electroweak bosons produced in hadron–hadron collisions. In particular, we discuss the transverse momentum distribution of lepton pairs with invariant mass close to the
