    • Angular correlations of lepton pairs from vector boson and top quark decays in Monte Carlo simulations. 

      Frixione, Stefano; Laenen, Eric; Motylinski, Patrick; Webber, Bryan R. (High Energy Physics, Cavendish Laboratory, University of Cambridge, 2007-02)
      We explain how angular correlations in leptonic decays of vector bosons and top quarks can be included in Monte Carlo parton showers, in particular those matched to NLO QCD computations. We consider the production of n ...
    • Joint resummation for heavy quark production. 

      Banfi, Andrea; Laenen, Eric (HEP, Cavendish Laboratory, University of Cambridge, 2004-11)
      We present joint threshold and recoil resummed transverse momentum distributions for heavy quark hadroproduction, at next-to-leading logarithmic accuracy. We study the dependence of these distributions on the production ...
    • Joint resummation for heavy quark production. 

      Banfi, Andrea; Laenen, Eric (High Energy Physics, Cavendish Laboratory, University of Cambridge, 2005-10)
      We present the joint threshold and recoil resummed transverse momentum distributions for heavy quark hadroproduction, at next-to-leading logarithmic accuracy. We exhibit their dependence on the production channel and the ...
    • Single-top hadroproduction in association with a W boson. 

      Frixione, Stefano; Laenen, Eric; Motylinski, Patrick; Webber, Bryan R.; White, C. D. (High Energy Physics, Cavendish Laboratory, University of Cambridge, 2008-05)
      We present the calculation of the Wt single-top production channel to next-to-leading order in QCD, interfaced with parton showers within the MC@NLO formalism. This channel provides a complementary way of investigating ...
    • Single-top production in MC@NLO. 

      Frixione, Stefano; Laenen, Eric; Motylinski, Patrick; Webber, Bryan R. (High Energy Physics, Cavendish Laboratory, University of Cambridge, 2005-12)
      We match next-to-leading order QCD results for single-top hadroproduction with parton shower Monte Carlo simulations, according to the prescription of the MC@NLO formalism. In this way, we achieve the first practical ...
    • Threshold effects in charm hadroproduction. 

      Kidonakis, Nikolaos; Laenen, Eric; Moch, Sven; Vogt, Ramona (HEP, Cavendish Laboratory, University of Cambridge, 2002-12)
      We describe calculations of cc production to next-to-next-to-leading order (NNLO) and next-to-next-to-leading logarithm (NNLL) near threshold in pp and −p interactions. We study the relevance of these calculations for ...
