Energetic heavy quarks passing through the hot and dense medium of a quark-gluon plasma (QGP), represented by the resulting mesons, are viewed as a suitable probe for the interactions inside of the QGP, in particular the mecha- nisms of energy loss, as they are less likely to thermalize within the medium and are mostly created at early stages of the medium evolution. However, models of both,...

In this talk, I elaborate on the way in which gluon transverse momentum dependent PDFs (TMDs) arise from the Color Glass Condensate (CGC). The latter is the effective theory that allows to calculate the nonlinear rapidity evolution of the gluon distribution at low-x in the presence of saturation. In particular, we use the CGC to compute the cross section for forward dijet or heavy-quark pair...

The total and differential cross sections for the production of a Z boson decaying to two charged leptons in association with $N$ jets in proton-proton collisions at a center-of-mass energy of 13 TeV are measured for different jet multiplicities. The differential cross sections are obtained as functions of the transverse momentum of the Z boson, of the jet multiplicity, of the jet kinematic...

The gluon content of the proton, in the high-energy regime, is embodied by the unintegrated gluon distribution (UGD), which describes the probability that a gluon can be emitted by a colliding proton, with a given longitudinal momentum fraction and transverse momentum. The UGD, which is formulated within the kt-factorization approach, has universal validity and several models for it have been...

We present a thorough analysis of unpolarized Drell-Yan (DY) pair production in pion-nucleus scattering. On the nucleus side, we use nuclear parton distributions along with parametrisations of the nucleon partonic transverse distribution available in the literature. Partonic longitudinal and transverse distributions of the pion are those obtained in a recent calculation in a Nambu-Jona Lasinio...

We have studied production of open charm mesons in association with one or two jets at the LHC. The theoretical cross sections are calculated in the leading-order collinear approximation as well as in the kT-factorization approach, where a part of higher order corrections is effectively included. Both processes under consideration here give possibilities of detailed testing of pQCD dynamics...

I review the recent theory developments in the QCD Wigner distribution or its Fourier transform, the generalized TMD distribution (GTMD). I also discuss how it can be measured in experiments.

We perform calculations of Z+jet cross-section taking into account the transverse momenta of the initial partons. Transverse Momentum Dependent (TMD) parton densities obtained with the Parton Branching method are used and higher order corrections are included via TMD parton showers in the initial state. The predictions are compared to measurements of forward Z+jet production of the LHCb...

The measurements of associated production of a vector boson with a top-antitop quark pair provide an important test for the Standard Model at the LHC.These are not only key processes to measure the top quark properties but also are very relevant in searches for new physics, both as being directly sensitive to it and as providing an important background. While NNLO calculations for this...
