Description

I will discuss recent progress in the all-order resummation of logarithmically enhanced terms in the perturbative expansion of LHC cross sections. At leading logarithmic accuracy, this resummation can be achieved using parton showers. In my talk, I will discuss higher-log resummations performed with effective field theory or diagrammatic methods. The focus will be on recent results for transverse momentum spectra of electroweak bosons (gamma, Z, W and Higgs bosons), and on new precision predictions for the Higgs cross section in the presence of a jet veto.
