Factorization and resummation at next-to-leading power for amplitudes and cross sections

by Eric Laenen (Nikhef)

In recent years we have learned a lot about the structure of QCD amplitudes and cross sections once one goes beyond the eikonal approximation. In this talk I will review this progress, addressing in particular the issue of predictive power, factorization and resummation of NLP effects. I will also show the impact of such effects on Higgs and Drell-Yan cross sections.
