Title: Momentum-space threshold resummation in $tW$ production at the LHC

Abstract

We calculate the soft-gluon corrections for $tW$ production to all orders. The soft limit is defined in the pair invariant mass or one particle inclusive kinematic schemes. We find that at NLO the contribution of the soft-gluon effect dominates in the total cross section or the differential distributions. After resumming the soft-gluon effect to all orders using the renormalization group equation, we find that the NLO+NNLL results increase the NLO cross sections by 12% ~ 17% depending on the scheme and the collider energy. Our results are in agreement with the measurements at the 8 and 13 TeV LHC. We also provide predictions for the total cross section at the 14 TeV LHC.
