Research output: Contribution to journalConference article


We discuss the problems that arise when one wishes to extend the existing general methods of computing radiative corrections to QCD jet cross sections to beyond next-to-leading order. Then we present a subtraction scheme that can be defined at any order in perturbation theory. We give a status report of the implementation of the method to computing jet cross sections in electronpositron annihilation at the next-to-next-to-leading order accuracy.
