Effective Theory for Jet Processes



Since its early days Soft-Collinear Effective Theory (SCET) has been advertised as an effective theory for jet processes, but the observables that have been resummed using this framework are so far mostly hadronically inclusive cross sections. As an example, I’ll discuss transverse momentum resummation and present precise results for the spectra of both single and multiple electroweak bosons. I’ll then turn to jet cross sections and explain why their resummation is much more involved. As an example of a resummed jet observable, I’ll present results for top production with a central jet veto.
