Nuclear Physics & RIKEN Theory Seminar

"Transverse momentum distributions from effective field theory"

Presented by Prof. Frank Petriello, Northwestern University & Argonne National Laboratory

Friday, May 6, 2011, 2:00 pm — Small Seminar Room, Bldg. 510

We present an approach to the resummation of low transverse-momentum logarithms using Soft-collinear Effective Theory. This method naturally avoids several problems that affect the standard approach. After motivating the importance of this phase-space region for experimental analyses, we explain the approach. Numerical results and a discussion of the open issues are presented.
