Description

REF 2021 is the 8th edition in the series of workshops on Resummation, Evolution, Factorization. The workshop focuses on transverse momentum dependent (TMD) parton densities and their connection with Monte Carlo event generators, as well as on the experimental measurements aimed at extracting information on TMD densities at the LHC, HERA and future colliders. The interplay between the necessary factorization theorems, resummation of large logarithms and the corresponding evolution equations are crucial towards higher precision calculations, necessary not only for the understanding of the data recorded by facilities like the LHC but especially for future experiments like the EIC. The workshop is sponsored by European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No. 824093 (STRONG 2020).

The workshop takes place online only.

        Determining Transverse Momentum Dependent Parton Distribution Functions with Monte Carlo generators 20m

        Transverse Momentum Dependent (TMD) parton distribution is a very powerful concept for the description of low and high transverse momentum effects in high energy collisions. The Parton Branching (PB) method provides TMD distributions that can be used in parton shower simulations, as already implemented in CASCADE Monte Carlo event generator.
        We develop a method, PS2TMD, that allows determining effective TMDs from the standard Monte Carlo parton showers. This method is validated and implemented to successfully reconstruct the PB-TMDs with different configuration settings. We also discuss kinematic shifts in longitudinal momentum distributions from initial state showering and point out the sizable influence of different reconstruction definitions on both collinear and transverse momentum PDFs.

        Intrinsic kt and DY production at different masses and energies 20m

        We present a study of intrinsic kt effects in DY production from very low DY masses up to the Z-boson mass, covering a large range of center-of-mass energies from \sqrt{s} = 40 GeV up to LHC energies.
        The description of measurements from different experiments is studied with MCatNLO supplemented with Pythia8 as well as with Parton Branching TMDs.
        An energy dependent intrinsic kt width is needed to described the measurements when Pythia8 is used, while a fixed intrinsic kt width works with PB TMDs.

        Rapidity correlations in multiperipheral models and high energy QCD 20m

        Particle-particle correlations, especially rapidity-rapidity correlations was already an important tool for hadron collider physics since the early 70s. Recently, we studied one-particle rapidity distributions and two-particle rapidity-rapidity correlations at hadron colliders revisiting one of the old models, the Chew-Pigniotti multiperipheral model and we were surprised to realize that the predictions were very much in line with the predictions one gets for the minijet radiation by using perturbative high energy QCD. Here, we report on further results we obtain from studying rapidity-rapidity correlations by using the Monte Carlo code BFKLex.

        A Monte-Carlo Simulation of Double Parton Scattering 20m

        Double parton scattering (DPS) is the process in which one has two separate hard scatterings in an individual proton-proton collision. In recent years much progress has been made towards the proper description of this phenomenon in QCD, including a consistent description of perturbative splittings that yield the parton pair in one or both protons, and a coherent framework for combining both double and single scattering without double counting. However, phenomenological predictions for DPS are often made using Monte Carlo codes or the "pocket formula", which are based on a simple picture of two uncorrelated scatters. I describe the development of a new Monte Carlo simulation for DPS, dShower, that is based on the modern theoretical picture. The structure of the DPS shower will be discussed, as well as the procedure to combine this shower with an SPS shower such that one can simulate both processes without double counting.

        Sum rules for triple parton distribution functions 20m

        Recent measurements of the triple J/psi production performed by the CMS collaboration suggest non-negligible contribution from a triple parton scattering (TPS). The CMS results can be seen as a first experimental observation of a TPS process. Unfortunately, due to the absence of experimental fits, triple parton distribution functions (tPDFs), needed for the theoretical computation of TPS cross sections, remain unknown. Therefore, in phenomenological studies of the TPS phenomenon one still has to rely on certain model-dependent assumptions about the shape of tPDFs and their relation to standard single parton distribution functions.

        In this talk I will discuss how one can extend the sum rules, previously proposed by Gaunt and Stirling for the double parton distribution functions, to the case of tPDFs and how one can use PYTHIA8 code to construct tPDFs which will approximately obey such sum rules. Additionally, I will demonstrate how one can proof the sum rules for ''bare'' tPDFs using the light-cone formalism.

        DPDs in colour space: perturbative splitting and positivity 20m

        Double parton scattering (DPS) - the situation where two individual hard interactions happen during a single hadron-hadron collision - is sensitive to all sorts of correlations between two partons inside a hadron, e.g.~spin, colour, or spatial separation. Therefore DPS gives access to information about hadron structure not accessible in single parton scattering (SPS). This information is encoded in double parton distributions (DPDs) which are the DPS counterpart of PDFs in SPS.
        At small inter-parton distances the leading contribution to DPDs is due to a perturbative splitting mechanism, which makes it possible to calculate DPDs in perturbation theory in this regime. We compute the unpolarized perturbative splitting DPDs at next-to-leading order (NLO) for all possible colour correlations and study their numerical importance compared to the leading order (LO) splitting DPDs.
        With these NLO splitting DPDs we can show that positivity bounds for colour space DPDs can be violated. We furthermore find that even at LO positivity can be violated by evolution from lower to higher scales, in contrast to the situation for ordinary PDFs.

        Measurements of the Z boson production at ATLAS 20m

        Precision measurements of the Drell-Yan process at LHC provide most precise tests of perturbative QCD and information about the parton distribution functions for quarks within the proton. We present the measurement of the transverse momentum and phistart_eta distributions of Drell-Yan lepton pairs at 13 TeV. The measurement is corrected for detector inefficiency and resolution and compared with state-of-the-art theoretical calculations. A summary of similar measurements at 7 and 8 TeV is also presented.

        Measurement of the Drell-Yan transverse momentum dependence over a wide mass range with CMS 20m

        The double differential cross sections of the Drell-Yan lepton pair
        (electron or muon) production, as a function of its invariant mass m_ll,
        transverse momentum pT, and $\phi*$ are measured. Drell-Yan masses between
        50 GeV and 1 TeV are investigated. Additionally, a measurement is
        performed requiring at least one jet in the final state. The collected
        data correspond to an integrated luminosity of 36.3 fb-1 of proton-proton
        collisions recorded with the CMS detector at the LHC at the center-of-mass
        energy of 13 TeV in 2016. Measurements are compared to state-of-the-art
        predictions based on perturbative quantum chromodynamics including soft
        gluon resummation. Theses results correspond to the CMS preliminary
        results SMP-20-003.

        Transverse momentum distributions in low-mass Drell-Yan lepton pair production at NNLO QCD 20m

        The production of lepton pairs at low invariant mass and finite transverse momentum resolves QCD dynamics at the boundary between the perturbative and non-perturbative domains. We investigate the impact of NNLO QCD corrections for the lepton pair transverse momentum distributions at energies corresponding to the BNL RHIC collider and to fixed-target experiments. Satisfactory perturbative convergence is observed in both cases. Only the collider data are found to be well-described by perturbative QCD.

        Disentangling Long and Short Distances in Momentum-Space TMDs 20m

        The extraction of nonperturbative TMD physics is made challenging by prescriptions that shield the Landau pole, which entangle long- and short-distance contributions in momentum space. The use of different prescriptions then makes the comparison of fit results for underlying nonperturbative contributions meaningless on their own. We propose a model-independent method to restrict momentum-space observables to the perturbative domain. This method is based on a set of integral functionals that act linearly on terms in the conventional position-space operator product expansion (OPE). Artifacts from the truncation of the integral can be systematically pushed to higher powers in $\Lambda_{\rm QCD}/k_T$. We demonstrate that this method can be used to compute the cumulative integral of TMDPDFs over $k_T$ in terms of collinear PDFs, accounting for both radiative corrections and evolution effects. This gives a systematic way of correcting the naive picture where the TMDPDF integrates to a collinear PDF, and we find that for the unpolarized distribution the corrections are a percent-level effect. We also show that, when supplemented with experimental data and improved perturbative inputs, these functionals will enable model-independent limits to be put on the nonperturbative OPE contributions in the Collins-Soper kernel and intrinsic TMD distributions.

        Factorization for the Transverse Momentum Distributions in SIDIS at Subleading Power 20m

        Fully differential measurements of the Semi-Inclusive DIS process with polarized beams provide important information on the three-dimensional structure of hadrons. In particular, azimuthal asymmetries of the fragmenting hadron probe interesting new correlations between partons in the hadronic system through novel hadronic distribution functions. In the framework of factorization for transverse momentum distributions (TMDs) some key asymmetries start at subleading order in the power expansion, where the formalism needed to fully relate observables and distributions is not yet under control, being primarily at tree level in the parton model. In this talk I utilize the soft collinear effective theory formalism to answer a few open questions, including providing generalized definitions of the distribution functions that are valid beyond tree level, giving a proof of completeness of the basis of functions, and providing a description of soft dynamical effects. These results enable a QCD description of SIDIS azimuthal asymmetries beyond tree level, and hence provide a framework for systematically improvable relations to the underlying distributions.

        The Collins-Soper kernel from lattice QCD via quasi TMDPDFs 20m

        I will describe recent lattice QCD determinations of the nonperturbative Collins-Soper kernel, which describes the rapidity evolution of quark transverse-momentum-dependent parton distribution functions. It is found that different approaches to extract the Collins-Soper kernel from the same underlying lattice QCD matrix elements yield significantly different results and uncertainty estimates, revealing that power corrections, such as those associated with higher-twist effects, and perturbative matching between quasi and light-cone beam functions, cannot be neglected. I will discuss the implications of these observations for future controlled calculations of this quantity, and what will be required to achieve them.

        Determination of the Collins-Soper Kernel from Lattice QCD via moments of quasi-TMDs 20m

        We present lattice results for the non-perturbative Collins-Soper (CS) kernel, which describes the energy-dependence of transverse momentum-dependent parton distributions (TMDs). The CS kernel is extracted from the ratios of first Mellin moments of quasi-TMDs evaluated at different nucleon momenta.
        The analysis is done with dynamical $N_f=2+1$ clover fermions for the CLS ensemble H101 ($a=0.0854\,\mathrm{fm}$, $m_{\pi}=m_K=422\,\mathrm{MeV}$). The computed CS kernel is in good agreement with experimental extractions and previous lattice studies.

        Curing high-energy instability of the NLO heavy-quarkonium hadroproduction cross section with High-Energy Factorization 20m

        The energy dependence of the total hadroproduction cross section for pseudoscalar quarkonia is computed via matching of the NLO Collinear-Factorisation (CF) results with Leading-Logarithmic resummation of higher-order corrections $\propto\alpha_s^{n}\ln^{n-1}(1/z)$ to the CF hard-scattering coefficient, where $z=M^2/\hat{s}$ with $\hat{s}$ being partonic center-of-mass energy squared. The resummation is performed using High-Energy Factorization(HEF). The resummation cures the collinear over-subtraction problem of the Next-to-Leading Order(NLO) CF calculation, stabilizing the high-energy behaviour of the cross section. Predictions of the NNLO $\alpha_s^2\ln(1/z)$ term of the CF hard-scattering coefficient are made. The matching is performed directly in $z$-space for the first time using the Inverse-Error Weighting (InEW) matching.

        Evidence for the maximally entangled low x proton in Deep Inelastic Scattering from H1 data 20m

        Motivated by the Kharzeev-Levin entropy formula which postulates a maximally entangled proton wave function in Deep Inelastic Scattering at low x, we investigate the proposed relation between parton number and final state hadron multiplicity. Contrary to the original formulation we propose to determine partonic entropy from the sum of gluon and quark distribution functions at low x, which we obtain from an unintegrated gluon distribution subject to next-to-leading Balitsky-Fadin-Kuraev-Lipatov evolution. We find that our framework provides a very good description of recently measured H1 data on the final state hadron multiplicity, which provides experimental evidence for the proposed entropy formula. We furthermore provide a comparison based on CTEQ next-to-leading order parton distribution functions, which slightly overshoots the data, but provide in general an acceptable description.

        Isolated photon production in the Parton Reggeization Approach with real NLO corrections 20m

        We study isolated photon production in the Parton Reggeization Approach with NLO corrections originated from subprocesses of additional parton emissions. Two matching schemes are tested. The first one is based on Kt-ordering of emitted partons during Kt-depended evolution, the second one applies rapidity-ordering for factorization of real parton emissions. We compare our predictions for transverse momentum spectra of isolated photons measured at the LHC.

        Finite-𝑁𝑐 corrections to Wilson line correlators 20m

        In high-energy heavy-ion collisions, a quark-gluon plasma is produced. One way to study this exotic type of matter is to analyze the effect it has on high-energy partons traversing it. This leads to a rich phenomenology that commonly is referred to as jet quenching. High-energy partons propagating in the hot and dense medium mainly experience transverse momentum broadening which leads to additional radiative energy loss. The theoretical description of the main mechanisms behind these phenomena has been well known for some time.
        One effect the medium has on partons propagating through it, is that their color continuously rotates, an effect that is encapsulated in a Wilson line along their trajectory. When calculating observables, one typically has to deal with traces of two or more medium-averaged Wilson lines. These are usually dealt with in the literature by invoking the large-$𝑁_𝑐$ limit, but exact calculations have been lacking in many cases. In our work [1], we show how correlators of multiple Wilson lines appear, and develop a method to calculate them to all orders in $𝑁_𝑐$. Specifically, we will focus on the trace of four Wilson lines, which we develop a differential equation for. We will then generalize this calculation to a product of an arbitrary number of Wilson lines, and show how to do the exact calculation numerically, and even analytically in the large-$𝑁_𝑐$ limit.
        Even though these results are derived in the context of high-$𝑝_𝑇$ jet processes, they are quite general and can be used in other situations where Wilson line correlators appear.

        Factorization for quark and gluon lattice TMDs 20m

        Recent years have seen prominent progress in the first-principles calculation of transverse-momentum-dependent parton distributions (TMDs) from the so-called lattice TMDs, which are equal time correlators that include quasi-TMDs and those from the Lorentz-invariant approach. In this talk, I will show that the lattice TMDs and TMDs are related by a factorization formula which can be rigorously derived in QCD. As a corollary, there is no mixing between quark and gluon sectors, or quark of different flavors, in the matching for lattice TMDs, which implies that their lattice calculations can be much simpler than the collinear parton distributions. We also verify these results at one-loop in perturbation theory.

        Power corrections in TMD factorization 20m

        I present the recent studies of power corrections for the transverse momentum dependent (TMD) factorization. A particular emphasis is made on the novel method of TMD operator expansion that yields the TMD factorization theorem on the operator level. This method grants a systematic description of power corrections to TMD factorization, in particular, it naturally introduces the concept of TMD-twist and allows a certain separation of kinematic and genuine power corrections. Also, I present factorized expression at the next-to-leading power (NLP) (at NLO perturbative accuracy), and discuss the evolution properties for TMD distribution of higher TMD-twists.

        T-odd transverse-momentum-dependent gluon distributions in a spectator model 20m

        We perform explorative analyses of the 3D gluon content of the proton via a study of polarized T-odd gluon TMDs at leading twist, calculated in a spectator model for the parent nucleon. Our approach encodes a flexible parametrization for the spectator-mass density, suited to describe both moderate and small-x effects. All these prospective developments are relevant in the investigation of the gluon dynamics inside nucleons and nuclei, which constitutes one of the major goals of new-generation colliding machines, as the Electron-Ion Collider, the High-Luminosity LHC, NICA-SPD, and the Forward Physics Facility.

        Dynamical resolution scale fits for TMDs at Next-to-Leading-Order (NLO) 20m

        The parton-branching solutions of QCD evolution equations have been recently
        studied. From this approach, a method to construct both collinear and transverse
        momentum dependent (TMD) parton densities has been formulated. In this
        formalism, soft-gluon color coherence effects are taken into account by
        introducing the soft-gluon resolution scale. Both analytical studies and
        numerical solutions of PB evolution equations in the presence of dynamical
        resolution scales at Leading-Order (LO) in the strong coupling have been
        presented. In this talk, we show preliminary results of fits to the high-precision
        deep inelastic scattering (DIS) structure-function measurements regarding the
        implications of dynamical resolution scales at Next-to-Leading-Order (NLO)
        accuracy in the strong coupling. We also illustrate the difference between LO
        and NLO distributions fits.

I illustrate their role in the resummation of QCD observables at N3LL', such as $q_T$ distributions and Energy Energy Correlators. The matching kernels onto standard PDFs or FFs of these collinear gauge invariant objects can be obtained from the collinear expansion of differential partonic cross sections at the LHC, which we have calculate at N$^3$LO for both Drell-Yan and Higgs production in gluon fusion. I conclude by presenting the results for the N3LO EEC Jet Function and the resummation at N3LL' of the EEC in the back-to-back limit.

        Transverse-momentum resummation for boson plus jet production at hadron colliders 20m

        In this talk I discuss the associated production of a vector or Higgs boson with a jet in hadronic collisions. When the transverse momentum of the boson-jet system is much smaller than its invariant mass, the QCD perturbative expansion is affected by large logarithmic terms that must be resummed to all orders. I discuss the all-order resummation structure of the logarithmically enhanced contributions up to next-to-leading logarithmic accuracy. The presented resummation formalism is fully differential in the kinematic variables of the boson-jet system. Soft-parton radiation produces azimuthal correlations that are fully accounted for in this framework. I present explicit analytical results up to next-to-leading order and next-to-leading logarithmic accuracy, that include the exact dependence on the jet radius. I also elaborate on the presence of non-global logarithms for this observable as well as the absence of clustering logarithms when one uses anti-kt jet-clustering.

        Investigation of the proton structure with associated Z + heavy jet production at the LHC 20m

        We consider the production of $Z$ bosons associated with a heavy (charm and beauty) jet at the LHC energies using two scenarios based on the transverse momentum dependent (TMD) parton densities in the proton. First of them employs the Catani-Ciafaloni-Fiorani-Marchesini gluon evolution and is implemented into the Monte-Carlo event generator PEGASUS. The second scheme is based on the Parton Branching approach implemented into the Monte-Carlo event generator CASCADE. We compare the predictions obtained within these two TMD-based approaches with each other, investigate their sensitivity to the TMD gluon densities in the proton and estimate the effects coming from parton showers, double parton scattering mechanism and possible intrinsic charm. Additionally, we compare our predictions with the results of traditional (collinear) pQCD calculations performed with the NLO accuracy. It is shown that the TMD-based results do not contradict LHC experimental data.

        Hunting stabilization effects of the high-energy resummation via heavy flavor production at the LHC 20m

        With the aim of targeting for clear signals of the stabilization of the high-energy resummation under higher-order corrections and energy-scale variation, we investigate the inclusive semi-hard production of two bottom-flavored hadrons, as well as a single bottom-flavored hadron accompanied by a light jet. Working within the hybrid high-energy and collinear factorization formalism, which encodes the BFKL resummation of energy logarithms up to NLL accuracy, we present predictions for cross sections differential in rapidity and transverse momentum, and for azimuthal-angle correlations. The fair stability the emergers from the analysis of our distributions motivates our interest toward future studies in wider kinematic ranges, as the ones reachable at new-generation colliding facilities (HL-LHC, the FPF, the EIC, and NICA). Here, our hybrid factorization could serve as an additional tool to improve the standard fixed-order description of heavy-flavored emissions and to possibly gauge the feasibility of precision studies of these channels in the high-energy regime.

        Gauge-invariant TMD factorization for Drell-Yan hadronic tensor at small $x$ 20m

        The Drell-Yan process is studied in the framework of TMD factorization in the Sudakov region $s\gg Q^2\gg q_\perp^2$ corresponding to recent LHC experiments with $Q^2$ of order of mass of Z-boson and transverse momentum of DY pair $\sim$ few tens GeV. The Drell-Yan hadronic tensors are calculated with ${1\over Q^2}$ accuracy, first at the tree level and then with the double-log accuracy. It is demonstrated that in the leading order in $N_c$ the higher-twist quark-quark-gluon TMDs reduce to leading-twist TMDs due to QCD equation of motion. The resulting tensor for unpolarized hadrons is EM gauge-invariant and depends on two leading-twist TMDs: $f_1$ responsible for total DY cross section, and Boer-Mulders function $h_1^\perp$. The corresponding qualitative and semi-quantitative predictions for angular coefficients of Z-boson production seem to agree with LHC data at ​corresponding kinematics.

        Helicity Evolution at Small x: the Single-Logarithmic Contribution 20m

        We calculate single-logarithmic corrections to the small-$x$ flavor-singlet helicity evolution equations derived previously at the double-logarithmic approximation. The new single-logarithmic part of the evolution kernel sums up powers of $\alpha_s\ln(1/x)$, which are an important correction to the dominant powers of $\alpha_s\ln^2(1/x)$ summed up previously by the double-logarithmic kernel at small values of Bjorken $x$ and with $\alpha_s$ the strong coupling constant. The single-logarithmic terms arise separately from either the longitudinal or transverse momentum integrals. Consequently, the evolution equations we derive not only include the small-$x$ evolution kernel, but they also coincide in assumptions with the leading-order polarized DGLAP splitting functions. We further enhance the equations by calculating the running coupling corrections to the kernel.

        Transverse Momentum Dependent Gluon Distribution within High Energy Factorization at Next-to-Leading Order 20m

        We discuss Transverse Momentum Dependent (TMD) gluon distributions within high energy factorization at next-to-leading order in the strong coupling within the framework of Lipatov's high energy effective action. Unlike previous results obtained within high energy factorization, our framework allows to recover the complete anomalous dimension associated with Collins-Soper-Sterman (CSS) evolution of the TMD distribution, including also single-logarithmic terms in the CSS evolution. Another interesting feature concerns the relation between unpolarized and linearly polarized gluon TMD in the BFKL limit. While our calculation confirms that both distributions agree in the BFKL limit at leading order, we find that they differ, once next-to-leading order corrections are being included. We furthermore establish a link between the QCD operator definition of the TMD gluon distribution and a previously derived off-shell TMD gluon-to-gluon splitting function, which is within the present framework obtained as the real 1-loop correction.

        HERAPDF2.0Jets and prospects for parton-branching PDFs with HERA jets data. 20m

        HERA inclusive and jet data has been used in collinear HERAPDF2.0Jets fits at NLO and NNLO. The addition of the jet data allows a simultaneous fit of parton distribution functions of the proton and determination of the strong coupling alpha_s(M2_Z). In the parton branching (PB) approach, Collinear and TMD parton densities have been determined by fits to inclusive deep inelastic scattering HERA data. This method allows one to simultaneously take into account soft-gluon emission and the transverse momentum recoils in the parton branchings along the QCD cascade. The latter leads to a natural determination of the TMD PDFs in a proton. A crucial development will be to include data from other measurements in a wider kinematic range in order to constrain the TMD PDFs and gain sensitivity to intrinsic transverse momentum contributions. We present very preliminary results for PB TMD fits using the same HERA inclusive and jet data at NLO. The results are compared to the HERAPDF2.0Jets predictions and a prospect of including LHC data sets is discussed.

        Transverse momentum dependent distributions in dijet and heavy hadron pair production at EIC 20m

        We discuss the measurement of gluon transverse momentum distribution (TMD) in dijet and heavy hadron pair (HHP) production in semi-inclusive deep inelastic scattering. The factorization of these processes in impact parameter space shows the appearance of a specific new soft factor matrix element on top of angular a complex valued anomalous dimensions. We show in detail how these features can be treated consistently and we discuss a scale prescription for the evolution kernel of the dijet soft function. As a result, we obtain phenomenological predictions for unpolarized and angular modulated cross sections for the electron-ion collider (EIC) using current available information on unpolarized TMD.

        Probing gluon number density with electron-dijet correlations at EIC 20m

        We propose a novel way of studying the gluon number density (the so-called Weizsäcker-Williams gluon distribution) using the planned Electron Ion Collider. Namely, with the help of the azimuthal correlations between the total transverse momentum of the dijet system and the scattered electron, we examine an interplay between the effect of the soft gluon emissions (the Sudakov form factor) and the gluon saturation effects. The kinematic cuts are chosen such that the dijet system is produced in the forward direction in the laboratory frame, which provides an upper bound on the probed longitudinal fractions of the hadron momentum carried by scattered gluons. Further cuts enable us to use the factorization formalism that directly involves the unpolarized Weizsäcker-Williams gluon distribution. We find this observable to be very sensitive to the soft gluon emission and moderately sensitive to the gluon saturation.

        Forward dijet production at the EIC: beyond the TMD factorization 20m

        Measurements of azimuthal correlations in the production of forward dijets in deep inelastic scattering provide the opportunity to probe the Weizsäcker-Williams gluon transverse momentum dependent (TMD) parton distribution, and the possibility for the discovery of gluon saturation at the future Electron-Ion Collider (EIC). While the TMD factorization is expected to hold near back-to-back production, there are important kinematic (perturbative power) and genuine saturation contributions that must be resummed for more controlled phenomenological predictions.
        In this talk, I will compare the results of the TMD and the improved TMD factorization framework to those in the Color Glass Condensate (CGC), and report on the expected size of kinematic and genuine saturation corrections at different kinematics accessible at the EIC [1]. I will discuss recent progress towards the computation of dijet production at the next-to-leading order in the CGC [2], and the possibility of extending the TMD-CGC correspondence to higher orders in perturbation theory.

        Jet-based TMD measurements with H1 data and machine-learning unfolding 20m

        Recently, jet measurements in deep-inelastic scattering (DIS) events close to Born kinematics have been proposed as a new probe to study transverse-momentum-dependent (TMD) PDFs, TMD fragmentation functions, and TMD evolution. In this talk, I will report measurements of lepton-jet momentum imbalance in high-Q2 DIS events collected with the H1 detector at HERA.  These data bridge DIS measurements from fixed target experiments and Drell-Yan measurements at colliders, thus providing a stringent test of TMD factorization, evolution and universality. This measurement also represents the first example of unfolding assisted with machine learning. These results serve as a pathfinder for the Electron-Ion Collider jet-based 3D imaging program, which I will describe briefly.

The LO sets of DSS library for the input FFs is used. The numerical results are compared with the experimental data in the different energies which are reported by the different collaborations, such as TASSO, AMY, MARK II, CELLO and Belle with the other QCD+fragmentation models. The behaviors of the normalized differential cross sections and the multiplicity versus the "transverse momentum" ($p_\bot$) are discussed. The final results demonstrate that the KMR and MRW UFFs give a good description of data and there is not much significant difference between the above three schemes. On the other hand, our results become closer to the data for the lower values of $p_\bot$ and the higher values of center of mass energies.

        Precision measurements using soft drop jet mass 20m

        Soft drop jet mass is an attractive candidate for precision measurements such as the top mass $m_t$ and the strong coupling constant $\alpha_s$, as it can be perturbatively calculable to high accuracy besides being more robust against nonperturbative and underlying event corrections. In this talk I will describe the prospects for the top mass and $\alpha_s$-determination at the LHC using soft drop jet mass by combining state-of-the-art resummed predictions with a field theoretic treatment of nonperturbative power corrections. I will show that the observable is promising for $m_t$ measurement in a definite top mass scheme with ${\cal O}(1)$ GeV uncertainty. On the other hand, the dominant uncertainty in the $\alpha_s$-determination is limited by nonperturbative corrections, and for measurements on $p_T \geq 1$ TeV, is saturated to about 2%.

        Next-to SV resummed Drell-Yan cross section beyond leading-logarithm 20m

We restrict ourselves to resummed contributions only from quark anti-quark ($q \bar q$) initiated channels. The resummation is performed in Mellin-$N$ space. We derive the $N$-dependent coefficients and the $N$-independent constants to desired accuracy for our study. The resummed results are matched through the minimal prescription procedure with the fixed order results. We find that the resummation, taking into account the NSV terms, appreciably increases the cross section while decreasing the sensitivity to renormalisation scale. We observe that, at 13 TeV LHC energies, the SV+NSV resummation at $\rm \overline{ NLL} (\rm \overline{NNLL})$ gives about 8\% (2\%) corrections respectively to the NLO (NNLO) results for the considered $Q$ range: 150-3500 GeV. In addition, the absence of quark gluon initiated contributions to NSV part in the resummed terms leaves large factorisation scale dependence indicating their importance at NSV level. We also study the numerical impact of $N$-independent constants and explore the ambiguity involved in exponentiating them.Finally we present our predictions for the neutral Drell-Yan process at various center of mass of energies.

        Twist decomposition of the proton structure from BK equation 20m

        We perform a twist decomposition of the Balitsky-Kovchegov (BK) amplitude for the proton structure functions in the leading logarithmic limit. Assuming a single iteration of the triple pomeron vertex and using the Mellin space technique we discuss the BK corrections for the leading and subleading twist contributions.

        Universality of quantum corrections to transverse momentum broadening 20m

        We show that the resummation of double logarithmic corrections to transverse momentum broadening of fast partons in large QCD media in the vicinity of the saturation boundary yields a universal distribution and exhibits anomalous scaling akin to super diffusive processes such as Lévy random walks. This asymptotic, all order result may have implications in the phenomenology of dijet production in pA and AA collisions and provides a new initial condition for small-x evolution that accounts for gluon fluctuations that live within the target.

        Renormalization of the radiative jet function and its zero-bin subtraction 20m

        We show how to compute directly the renormalization/evolution of the
        radiative jet function that appears in the factorization theorems for
        $B\to \gamma\ell\nu$ and $H\to \gamma\gamma$ through a $b$-quark
        loop. We point out that, in order to avoid double counting of soft
        contributions, one should use in the factorization theorems a
        subtracted radiative jet function, from which soft contributions
        have been removed. The soft-contribution subtractions are zero-bin
        subtractions in the terminology of soft-collinear effective theory. We
        show that they can be factored from the radiative jet function and that
        the resulting soft-subtraction function gives rise to a nonlocal
        renormalization of the subtracted radiative jet function. This is a
        novel instance in which zero-bin subtractions lead to a nonlocality in
        the renormalization of a subtracted quantity that is not present in
        the renormalization of the unsubtracted quantity. We demonstrate the
        use of our formalism by computing the order-$\alpha_s$ evolution kernel
        for the subtracted radiative jet function.

        T-odd effects in QCD and beyond 20m

        In this talk we will describe a parallel between phenomenological and symmetry-based descriptions of the process dependence of the Time-reversal-odd phenomena in QCD, such as the Sivers effect, with the goal of defining the essential elements that lead to such process dependence in QCD. With the necessary elements clarified across these two complementary descriptions, this will then serve as a starting point to explore possible generalizations in a different gauge theory.
