We study the kinematic distributions of top–antitop quark (tt̄) pairs produced at the Tevatron, including the effects of initial state and final state multiple soft gluon emission, using the Collins–Soper–Sterman resummation formalism. The resummed results are compared with those predicted by the showering event generator PYTHIA for various distributions involving the tt̄ pair and the individual t or t̄. The comparison between the experimental and predicted distributions will be a strong test… CONTINUE READING
