A Multiphoton QED Generator

  • Giovanni Bonvicini
Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSB, volume 233)


A method to calculate higher order radiative corrections with an explicit representation of the photon variables is presented here. The method can correctly exponentiate 2-particle QED processes up to next-to-leading factorization. Possible future improvements are discussed.
