We propose a method to help control cutoff effects in the short-distance
contribution to integrated correlation functions, such as the hadronic vacuum
polarization (HVP), using the corresponding screening correlators computed at finite
The strategy is investigated with Wilson fermions at leading order, which
reveals a logarithmically-enhanced lattice artifact in the short-distance
contribution, whose coefficient is determined at this order.
We then perform a numerical study with $N_\mathrm{f}=2$ O($a$)-improved Wilson
fermions and a temperature $T\approx250$~MeV, with lattice spacings down to
$a\approx0.03$~fm, which suggests good control can be achieved on the short-distance
contribution to the HVP and the Adler function at
large virtuality.
Finally, we put forward a scheme to compute the complete HVP
function at arbitrarily large virtualities using a step-scaling
in the temperature.
