Description

This talk is an overview of infrared divergences required in precision QCD calculations. The cancellation of these divergences is necessary by KLN theorem and must be verified when predicting observables. Improvements on methods in this type of work is necessary to extend predictions to $\text{N}^3\text{LO}$ in $\alpha_\text{s}$, to make comparisons with future precise collider experiments. Antenna subtraction is discussed, in addition to new analysis identifying structure in antenna functions.
