The top-quark mass can be determined with very high precision from a scan of the total $e^+e^-\to b\bar{b}W^+W^-X$ cross section near the top-pair production threshold. We present the full calculation of electroweak and non-resonant corrections to this process at NNLO. We discuss the size of the new contributions and estimate the theory uncertainty on the top-quark mass in the PS mass scheme.

Full top quark mass dependence in Higgs boson pair production at NLO

A bstractWe study the effects of the exact top quark mass-dependent two-loop corrections to Higgs boson pair production by gluon fusion at the LHC and at a 100 TeV hadron collider. We perform a

Reconstruction of top-quark mass effects in Higgs pair production and other gluon-fusion processes

A bstractWe propose a novel method for the treatment of top-quark mass effects in the production of H(∗), HH, HZ and ZZ final states in gluon fusion. We show that it is possible to reconstruct the

Next-to-Next-to-Next-to-Leading Order QCD Prediction for the Top Antitop S-Wave Pair Production Cross Section Near Threshold in e(+)e(-) Annihilation.

We present the third-order QCD prediction for the production of top antitop quark pairs in electron-positron collisions close to the threshold in the dominant S-wave state. We observe a significant

NNLO non-resonant corrections to threshold top-pair production from e+ e-: endpoint-singular terms

We analyse the subleading non-resonant contributions to the e+ e- -> W+ W- b bbar cross section at energies near the top-antitop threshold. These correspond to next-to-next-to-leading-order (NNLO)

Third-order correction to top-quark pair production near threshold I. Effective theory set-up and matching coefficients

This is the first in a series of papers, in which we compute the third-order QCD corrections to top-antitop production near threshold in e+ e- collisions. The present paper provides a detailed

Foundation and generalization of the expansion by regions

A bstractThe “expansion by regions” is a method of asymptotic expansion developed by Beneke and Smirnov in 1997. It expands the integrand according to the scaling prescriptions of a set of regions
