Title: Large-x Resummations in QCD

Abstract

We give a brief introduction to the resummation of a class of large logarithmic perturbative corrections to partonic hard-scattering cross sections. These corrections occur in deeply-inelastic structure functions at high Bjorken-x, and near partonic threshold in cross sections for large produced invariant mass or transverse momentum, such as the Drell-Yan process or hadronic prompt-photon production. They are associated with soft and/or collinear gluon emission.
