Multi-TeV top-quark pair production at the LHC — •David Heymes — University of Cambridge, Cavendish Laboratory (HEP), Cambridge, United Kingdom
Measurements including the top quark have evolved from its discovery at Tevatron to precision physics at the LHC. Especially, top-quark pair production is measured to high accuracy inclusively and differentially.
Precision predictions for top-quark pair production at the LHC are therefore indispensable in order to understand top-quark properties to the accuracy reached at experiments. I will summarize recent developments in next-to-next-to-leading order computations for top-quark pair production and show differential results in a wide kinematic regime.
