The session is dedicated to nonperturbative aspects of multi-loop perturbative QCD calculations for colliders. Theoretical modeling of nonperturbative effects is essential for parton showering simulations, determination of the QCD coupling and parton distributions, and ultimately for a variety of theoretical predictions in perturbative QCD for the high-luminosity Large Hadron Collider and other experiments. We review studies of nonperturbative QCD aspects of high-precision QCD applications in the EF05 and 06 topical groups.
We introduce Letters of Interest submitted to the EF05 and EF06 topical groups and dedicated to the treatment of nonperturbative effects in high-precision QCD computations and parton showering programs.
