Transverse momentum (or QT) resummation is a powerful method to predict differential distributions of elementary particles in quantum chromodynamics. Its main features and differences from Monte-Carlo showering methods are discussed in the brief overview of resummation theory. Our group is actively involved in the development of  transverse momentum resummation methods in essential collider processes. This page collects various resources for computation of resummed cross  sections, including publicly distributed computer codesreferences to journal papers published by our group, and relevant bibliography.


Computer programs

A quick plot of the resummed QT distribution for a given invariant mass and rapidity can be made with the help of the online plotter of resummed cross sections, which provides an intuitive user interface and produces figures in Postscript and GIF formats. For more detailed studies of resummed cross sections, a ResBos family of Fortran programs is publicly available.
  • ResBos -- calculation of resummed initial-state contributions  in unpolarized Drell-Yan-like processes at hadron-hadron colliders. At present, two branches of the ResBos code are supported. They are mostly compatible with one another, but optimized for different tasks:
  • ResBos-A -- a program spawned by ResBos that includes final-state NLO electromagnetic contributions in W boson production, supported by C.-P. Yuan. The inputs for this program are not compatible with ResBos inputs and can be downloaded here. More grid files are available below.
  • RhicBos -- ResBos optimized for polarized hadron-hadron collisions at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider; supported by Pavel Nadolsky.
  • ResBos-DIS -- a program for computation of resummed hadronic distributions in semi-inclusive deep inelastic scattering at lepton-hadron colliders; supported by Pavel Nadolsky.
You can also contact  C.-P. Yuan  and our coauthors regarding the resummation calculations and computer programs.

Usage and citation policy

You may freely download and use the ResBos software as long as you agree with each of the following conditions:
  • the ResBos software is provided AS IS; the authors of ResBos programs cannot be held responsible for errors, damages, or other unwanted consequences resulting from misunderstanding or misuse of our programs (even though we do our best to prevent such complications from ever happening);
  • the authors do not provide support for the ResBos software beyond very brief consultations, and only when their other duties permit;
  • your publications that use ResBos results must include references to our relevant papers, including each of the following:
    •  articles with calculations for the considered process listed  in  the table below, hopefully all of them, but at the very least those printed in the bold font;
    • references [1, 20] describing the program Legacy which computes the resummed input grids;
    • references to the parametrization of the nonperturbative Sudakov function  and parton distribution function specified in the description of each resummed grid.

Observables

ResBos programs compute the fully differential cross section d(sigma)/(dQdydQTd(Omega)) for processes h1 h2 -> (V)-> l1 l2 X, where  h1 and h2 are hadrons (pion or nucleons), V is an intermediate virtual particle or state (e.g., a virtual electroweak boson), and l1 and l2 are observed electroweak particles (leptons, prompt photons, or Z bosons).  Q, QT, and y are the invariant mass, transverse momentum, and rapidity of the intermediate state V in the laboratory frame (center-of-mass frame of the initial hadrons). Omega is the solid angle of the 3-momentum of l1  in the Collins-Soper rest frame of V. The production and decay of V are evaluated using exact matrix elements. Electroweak corrections to the width of V and spin correlations between the initial- and final-state particles are included when applicable.

Particle processes

The table summarizes implemented particle processes and computer codes needed for computation of resummed cross sections.
