Working group Kulesza

Research interests

Hadron collider phenomenology:

  • production of coloured SUSY particles

    NNLL-fast: the code to calculate NNLL + approximated NNLO squark and gluino production cross section, and its predecessor, NLL-fast

  • associated top quark production with an EW boson
  • Higgs production
  • precision calculations, in particular:
    • QCD resummation,
    • electroweak corrections,
  • multiple parton scattering
