Geometric IR subtraction for final state real radiation

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract / Description of output

A scheme is proposed for the subtraction of soft and collinear divergences present in massless final state real emission phase space integrals. The scheme is based on a local slicing procedure which utilises the soft and collinear factorisation properties of amplitudes to produce universal counter-terms whose analytic integration is relatively simple. As a first application the scheme is applied to establish a general pole formula for final state real radiation at NLO and NNLO in Yang Mills theory for arbitrary multiplicities. All required counter-terms are evaluated to all orders in the dimensional regulator in terms of Γ — and pFq hypergeometric — functions. As a proof of principle the poles in the dimensional regulator of the Hgggg double real emission contribution to the Hgg decay rate are reproduced.
