Transverse momentum resummation for color sextet and antitriplet scalar
production at the LHC

Ze Long Liu, Chong Sheng Li, Yan Wang, Yong Chuan Zhan, Hai Tao Li
We study the factorization and resummation of the transverse momentum spectrum of the color sextet and antitriplet scalars produced at the LHC based on soft-collinear effective theory. Compared to Z boson and Higgs production, a soft function is required to account for the soft gluon emission from the final-state colored scalar. The soft function is calculated at the next-to-leading order, and the resummation is performed at the approximate next-to-next-to-leading logarithmic accuracy. The non-perturbative effects and PDF uncertainties are also discussed.
