HATHOR HAdronic Top and Heavy quarks crOss section calculatoR

HATHOR is a fast performance tool with different options to choos (like order of calculation, PDF used, collider type etc) to calculate hadronic pair production cross sections of heavy quarks (top, b', t') up to NNLO in proton-proton (pp) or proton-antiproton (ppbar) collisions. All the necessary information about Hathor can be found from the following links:

1) S.Moch's talk in the Top20120 conference.

2) The tool is available also under links:

http://www-zeuthen.desy.de/~moch/hathor

http://www.physik.hu-berlin.de/pep/tools/

3) You may also directly contact P.Uwer or S.Moch to get the package.

How it works

Functionality of HATHOR is based on the use of the expression:

\[ \sigma_{pp\rightarrow q\bar{q}}(\sqrt{s},m_q)=\sum_{i,j=q,\bar{q},g} \int dx_idx_jf^A_i(x_i,\mu_f^2) f^B_j(x_j,\mu_f^2) \sigma_{ij\rightarrow q\bar{q}}(\rho,m^2_q,x_i,x_j,\alpha_s,\mu_r,\mu_f). \]

where $\sigma_{ij\rightarrow q\bar{q}}$ is a quark-antiquark pair production cross sections induced by i-th and j-th partons interaction, $f_i^A(x_i,\mu_f^2)$ and $f_j^B(x_j,\mu_f^2)$ are $i$-th and $j$-th partons distribution functions (PDF) in the A-th and B-th incoming nucleons correspondingly, $\mu_f$ and $\mu_r$ are factorization and renormalization scales, and $x_i$ and $x_j$ momentum fraction of each interacting parton in incoming nucleons A and B.

In order to calculate the central value factorization $\mu_f$ and renormalization $\mu_r$ scale parameters are set to a heavy quark mass, i.e. $\mu_f=\mu_r=m_q$. Along with central value the tool calculates also errors. There are two kind of errors: 1) errors coming from factorization $\mu_f$ and renormalization $\mu_r$ scales and 2) PDFs errors.

1) Scale errors are calculated by setting $\mu_f=\mu_r=m_q/2$ and $\mu_f=\mu_r=2m_q$ in order to get upper and lower deviations from the central value respectively.

2) PDF errors can be calculated in two ways: a) in a simplified way, where upper and lower deviations from the central value are calculated as averaged, according to the formula $\Delta = \frac{1}{2}\sqrt{\sum_{i=1}^N[max(\sigma_i^+-\sigma_i^-)]^2}$ and thus errors are symmetric; b) in a more general way, where deviations from the central value are calculated according to the formula $\Delta \sigma_{max}^+=\sqrt{\sum^N_{i=1}[max(\sigma_i^+-\sigma_0,\sigma_i^--\sigma_0,0)]^2}$, for the upper deviation, and formula $\Delta \sigma_{max}^-=\sqrt{\sum^N_{i=1}[max(\sigma_0-\sigma_i^+,\sigma_0-\sigma_i^-,0)]^2}$, for the lower deviation, so that the errors are asymmetric.

Validation

Validation of the tool is done comparing heavy quarks pair production cross sections calculated using this tool with ones obtained from other open official sources, first of all from different articles.

Below Top quark pair production cross sections in proton-proton (pp) and proton-antiproton (ppb) collisions calculated by this tool (in red) are compared with ones obtained from arXiv/hep-ph/0804.2800 (in blue). PDF errors are calculated in the asymmetric way. Cross sections are given in picobarns (pb).
