Transverse-momentum Resummation from Effective Field Theory


We present a new approach to the resummation of low transverse-momentum logarithms using Soft-collinear Effective Theory.  This method avoids several pitfalls that plague the standard approach.  After motivating the importance of this phase-space region for Tevatron and LHC analyses, we explain the approach.  Numerical results for production of the W, Z and Higgs bosons at hadron colliders are presented.
