Description

Current predictions for the total top-quark pair production cross section are based on NNLO QCD corrections with NNLL soft-gluon resummation. I will discuss the perspectives to go beyond this approximation by using known ingredients for N3LL soft-gluon resummation and Coulomb corrections.
