Precision QCD for associated top production


The production of a top quark pair in association with a heavy boson is a class of processes of high importance at LHC, both for precision Standard Model studies and new physics searches: top-pair production in association with a Higgs boson allows for a direct measurement of the top-quark Yukawa coupling, while the cross section of top-pair production in association with a W boson has been observed consistently higher than the Standard Model value by different experimental collaborations.

In this talk we present our recent computation of the NNLO QCD corrections to both these processes, with an emphasis on its most challenging steps and on its phenomenological applications.
