Resummation of Drell-Yan rapidity distributions

  • Paolo Bolzoni
Conference paper


The threshold resummation of Drell-Yan rapidity distributions was first considered in 1992 [1]. At that time, it was suggested a resummation formula for the case of zero rapidity. Very recently, thanks to the analysis of the full NLO calculation of the Drell-Yan rapidity distribution, it has been shown [2], that the result given in [1] is valid at NLL for all rapidities.
