Broggio, Alessandro and Ferroglia, Andrea and Ossola, Giovanni and Pecjak, Ben D. and Sameshima, Ray D. (2017) 'Associated production of a top pair and a Z boson at the LHC to NNLL accuracy.', Journal of high energy physics., 2017 (04). p. 105.
We study the resummation of soft gluon emission corrections to the production of a top-antitop pair in association with a Z boson at the Large Hadron Collider to next-to-next-to-leading logarithmic accuracy. By means of an in-house parton level Monte Carlo code we evaluate the resummation formula for the total cross section and several differential distributions at a center-of-mass energy of 13 TeV, and we match these calculations to next-to-leading order results.
