Introduction to Soft-Collinear Effective Theory

Introduction to Soft-Collinear Effective Theory (Lecture Notes in Physics) by Thomas Becher and Alessandro Broggio
English | 2015 | ISBN-10: 3319148478 | 208 pages | pdf | 3 mb

Among resummation techniques for perturbative QCD in the context of collider and flavor physics, soft-collinear effective theory (SCET) has emerged as both a powerful and versatile tool, having been applied to a large variety of processes, from B-meson decays to jet production at the LHC.

This book provides a concise, pedagogical introduction to this technique. It discusses the expansion of Feynman diagrams around the high-energy limit, followed by the explicit construction of the effective Lagrangian - first for a scalar theory, then for QCD. The underlying concepts are illustrated with the quark vector form factor at large momentum transfer, and the formalism is applied to compute soft-gluon resummation and to perform transverse-momentum resummation for the Drell-Yan process utilizing renormalization group evolution in SCET. Finally, the infrared structure of n-point gauge-theory amplitudes is analyzed by relating them to effective-theory operators.

This text is suitable for graduate students and non-specialist researchers alike as it requires only basic knowledge of perturbative QCD.
