QCD Resummation for Collider Observables

Pier Monni (Oxford University)


I will discuss the features of Sudakov resummation for jet observables used in collider phenomenology, and I will describe a general method to compute predictions to next-to-next-to-leading-logarithmic order. This approach does not require any observable-dependent factorisation theorem and therefore it can be applied to a wide class of jet observables. I will discuss some applications as well as comment on work in progress and future developments.
