Abstract
We introduce a new version of the FONLL code, now capable of calculating differential distributions for top quark production with next-to-leading-log resummation of $\log(p_t/m)$ terms. Numerical results for LHC and FCC kinematics are presented. In the transverse momentum region presently explored by ATLAS and CMS, no significant difference with respect to available fixed order predictions is predicted by FONLL. The large transverse momentum resummation of FONLL may instead become relevant if top is ever measured at
transverse momentum scales of several TeV.
