We study the resummation of large logarithmic perturbative corrections to the partonic cross sections relevant for the process pp{yields}hX at high transverse momentum of the hadron h. These corrections arise near the threshold for the partonic reaction and are associated with soft-gluon emission. We perform the resummation to next-to-leading logarithmic accuracy. We present numerical results for the fixed-target regime and find enhancements over the next-to-leading order cross section, which…

We present results relevant for the extension of threshold resummation beyond the next-to-leading logarithmic (NLL) order for QCD hard-scattering processes. As an example, we consider di-hadron

We develop threshold resummation for single-particle inclusive cross sections in hadron-hadron collisions to the level of next-to-next-to-leading logarithm, up to full matching with two-loop hard
Soft-Collinear Effects in Threshold and Joint Resummation
Large perturbative corrections, which appear in perturbative expressions for many QCD observables, either at small $$Q_T$$QT or at partonic threshold, can be organized by way of all order
