A bstractResummation of hadron collision cross sections, when the measurement imposes a hierarchy of scales, relies on factorization. Cancellation of Glauber/Coulomb gluons is a necessary condition for factorization. For Drell-Yan-like processes, the known proofs of cancellation of Glauber gluons are not applicable when jet vetoes are introduced, via jet algorithms or event shape variables such as the beam thrust. A priori, this does not rule out the possibility that an unknown new cancellation… 

Factorization and resummation for massive quark effects in exclusive Drell-Yan

A bstractExclusive differential spectra in color-singlet processes at hadron colliders are benchmark observables that have been studied to high precision in theory and experiment. We present an

Factorization and resummation for generic hierarchies between Jets

A bstractJets are an important probe to identify the hard interaction of interest at the LHC. They are routinely used in Standard Model precision measurements as well as in searches for new heavy

Factorization violation and scale invariance

Factorization violating effects in hadron scattering are due mainly to spectator-spectator interactions. While it is known that these interactions cancel in inclusive cross sections, like for the

A comprehensive framework for studying W′ and Z′ bosons at hadron colliders with automated jet veto resummation

A bstractThe production of high-mass, color-singlet particles in hadron collisions is universally accompanied by initial state QCD radiation that is predominantly soft with respect to the hard

An effective field theory for forward scattering and factorization violation

A bstractStarting with QCD, we derive an effective field theory description for forward scattering and factorization violation as part of the soft-collinear effective field theory (SCET) for high

Two-loop beam and soft functions for rapidity-dependent jet vetoes

A bstractJet vetoes play an important role in many analyses at the LHC. Traditionally, jet vetoes have been imposed using a restriction on the transverse momentum pTj of jets. Alternatively, one can

Probing transverse-momentum dependent evolution with groomed jets

A bstractWe propose an observable which involves measuring the properties (transverse momentum ph⊥ and energy fraction zh) of an identified hadron inside a groomed jet. The jet is identified with an

Soft functions for generic jet algorithms and observables at hadron colliders

A bstractWe introduce a method to compute one-loop soft functions for exclusive N - jet processes at hadron colliders, allowing for different definitions of the algorithm that determines the jet

Precision QCD Event Shapes at Hadron Colliders: The Transverse Energy-Energy Correlator in the Back-to-Back Limit.

It is anticipated that the theoretical simplicity of the TEEC observable will make it indispensable for precision studies of QCD at the LHC, and as a playground for theoretical studies of factorization and its violation.



Factorization and NNLL Resummation for Higgs production with a jet veto

A bstractUsing methods of effective field theory, we derive the first all-order factorization theorem for the Higgs-boson production cross section with a jet veto, imposed by means of a standard

Extra spin asymmetries from the breakdown of transverse-momentum-dependent factorization in hadron-hadron collisions

We demonstrate that partonic correlations that would traditionally be identified as subleading on the basis of a generalized TMD-factorization conjecture can become leading-power because of

We develop, through detailed one- and two-loop examples, a procedure for expressing the leading-twist Drell-Yan cross section in terms of the factored form proposed by Collins, Soper, and Sterman. We

A bstractWe show that for hadronic transverse energy ET in hadron-hadron collisions, the classic Collins-Soper-Sterman (CSS) argument for the cancellation of Glauber gluons breaks down at the level

Rapidity-Dependent Jet Vetoes

Jet vetoes are a prominent part of the signal selection in various analyses at the LHC. We discuss jet vetoes for which the transverse momentum of a jet is weighted by a smooth function of the jet
