Quark and gluon jet functions at three loops in QCD

We present the first result on the three-loop parton (quark/gluon) jet function in perturbative quantum chromodynamics using already known three-loop coefficient functions for deep-inelastic scattering via the exchange of a virtual photon that couples to quarks or a scalar that couples to gluons. While the gluon jet function is a brand new result emerging from this article, the result for the quark jet function provides an independent check to a more recent calculation. These jet functions being universal ingredients in the Soft-collinear effective theory framework, will play an important role in the phenomenological studies at the Large Hadron Collider, such as resummation of jet observables and also in N-jettiness subtraction method.

Metadata are provided both in "article" format (very similar to INSPIRE) as this helps creating
very compact bibliographies which can be beneficial to authors and
readers, and in "proceeding" format
which is more detailed and complete.
