Electroweak logarithms in inclusive cross sections

Wouter Waalewijn, University of Amsterdam

Electroweak corrections are important for BSM searches, as they can modify the tails of distributions. I will present a framework to resum electroweak logarithms in inclusive processes, that enables resummation beyond leading logarithmic accuracy. Interestingly, this is not simply achieved by the electroweak evolution of PDFs and fragmentation functions, but also involves soft functions. This introduces a dependence on angles and leads to mixing. I will also discuss a few extensions, including jets, and discuss the electroweak gauge boson PDFs.
