Description

We consider the cross section for the photoproduction reaction gamma + p -> h+ X in fixed-target scattering at COMPASS, where the hadron is produced at large transverse momentum. We investigate the role played by higher-order corrections to the cross section. In particular we adress large logarithmic ``threshold'' corrections to the partonic cross sections, which we resum to all orders.
