      McMule -- QED Corrections for Low-Energy Experiments 1h

      In the age of high-precision low-energy experiments such as MUonE or
      MEG, QED corrections start to become more and more important. To match
      the experimental error, we have developed McMule, an easily extendable
      framework for fully differential higher-order QED calculations of
      scattering and decay processes involving leptons.

      I will discuss some of the theoretical underpinning for McMule, notably the
      $FKS^\ell$ IR subtraction scheme and massification, as well as some recent
      phenomenological results we have obtained with McMule.
