**I) Topic: Precision EW physics at hadron colliders **

**Speaker:** *Alessandro Vicini (Universita' degli Studi di Milano)*

Formulation of an event generator that matches a Parton Shower description of radiation to all orders with fixed order exact matrix elements.

**Lectures:**

1. Precision tests of the Standard Model. Accurate prediction of the W boson mass.

2. NLO results. Renormalization. Soft and collinear divergences.

3. Radiation in the soft/collinear limit. All orders results. The Sudakov form factor.

4. Matching fixed-order and all-order results. The POWHEG approach. Comments on other formulations.

5. Simultaneous matching of QCD and EW results. Prospects towards NNLO accuracy (comments on the already available QCD generators)

**Tutorials:**

1. To introduce the technique of differential equations to evaluate loop integrals

2. To apply it to the evaluation of simple 1-loop integrals already well known in the literature

3. To consider the possibility of 1-loop integrals expanded at higher orders in D-4, in presence of masses, as the interesting mathematical quantity necessary to perform 2-loop QCDxEW calculations

**II) Topic:NNLO QCD calculations in hadronic collisions: the q _{T} subtraction formalism **

**Speaker:*** **Giancarlo Ferrera (Universita' degli Studi di Milano)*

**Lectures:**

1. Introduction, the perturbative approach in QCD. Next-to-leading order (NLO) QCD calculations:soft and collinear infrared singularities, factorization theorem of collinear singularities. Jet cross sections: infrared-safe, collinear-safe and collinear-factorizable observables.

2. Factorization of QCD amplitudes in the soft limit (eikonal approximation) and in the collinear limit (Altarelli-Parisi splitting functions). The dipole formalism.

3. Transverse-momentum (q_{T} ) distribution for colourless high-mass systems. Origin of double logarithmic terms in the small q_{T} region. All order Sudakov resummation, dynamics and kinematics factorization, exponentiation. Universality in qT resummation, the Sudakov form factor and the hard-collinear coefficients.

4. The qT subtraction formalism at next-to-next-to-leading order (NNLO): production of colourless high-mass systems. The q_{T} subtraction for coloured final state: the case of top quark anti top pair production.

5. Other approaches and future developments for NNLO QCD calculations (and beyond). Phenomeno-logical comparison of NLO and NNLO QCD predictions with LHC results.

**Tutorials:**

1. Algorithm for NLO calculations: slicing methods and subtraction methods.

2. NLO calculation of a generic (infrared and collinear safe) observable with no hadrons in the initial state within the dipole formalism.

3. Transverse-momentum resummation for Higgs and Drell-Yan pair production.

4. Numerical implementation of the q_{T} subtraction formalism. The HNNLO and DYNNLO parton level Monte Carlo generators.
