  • We present the first direct determination of the running top-quark mass based on the total cross section of top-quark pair production as measured at the Tevatron. Our theory prediction for the cross section includes various next-to-next-to-leading order QCD contributions, in particular, all logarithmically enhanced terms near threshold, the Coulomb corrections at two loops and all explicitly scale-dependent terms at next-to-next-to-leading order accuracy. The result allows for an exact and… CONTINUE READING
