Top-quark double-differential distributions at approximate N3LO
I present results for top-quark double-differential distributions in transverse momentum and rapidity. Second- and third-order soft-gluon corrections derived from next-to-next-to-leading-logarithm resumma- tion are added to the complete next-to-leading-order result, and the combination is denoted as approximate N3LO. The corrections are large and they reduce theoretical uncertainties. The theoretical results are in good agreement with recent data from the LHC.
