Accurate predictions for t-channel single top-quark production


  • Rikkert Frederix

Summary, in English

Single top-quark production through the exchange of a t-channel W-boson is the main electroweak production mode for top quarks at the Large Hadron Collider. I discuss a recent development in the theoretical predictions for this process, in which t-channel single-top with an additional jet is combined, at NLO accuracy, with t-channel single top production, without the introduction of a merging scale.
