Productionof Drell – Yanpairs in High Energynucleon – Nucleon Collisions

We compute cross sections for the Drell-Yan process in N–N collisions at next-to-leading order in α s. The mass, rapidity, transverse momentum , and angular dependence of these cross sections are presented. An estimate of higher order corrections is obtained from next-to-next-to-leading order calculation of the mass distribution. We compare the results with… CONTINUE READING
