Resummed transverse momentum distributions for Drell-Yan, W, Z and Higgs production

Thomas Becher, Thomas Luebbert, Matthias Neubert and Daniel Wilhelm

CuTe is a C++ program to calculate the differential cross-section for electro-weak gauge boson and Higgs boson production at small transverse momentum q_T. The code implements NNNLL resummation as well as matching to NNLO fixed-order results and uses the LHAPDF interface to provide different PDF sets.

It is based on resummed expressions using soft-collinear effective theory from the following publications:

  • Higgs-Boson Production at Small Transverse Momentum

For usage and installation, please see the manual.
