AbstractThe principle of maximum conformality (PMC) provides a systematic and process-independent method to derive renormalization scheme- and scale-independent fixed-order pQCD predictions. By Brodsky and Wu [Phys. Rev. D 85, 114040 (2012)1, we studied the top-quark charge asymmetry at the Tevatron. By applying the PMC, we have shown that the large discrepancies for the top-quark charge asymmetry between the Standard Model estimate and the CDF and DO data are greatly reduced. In the present paper, with the help of the Bernreuther-Si program, we present a detailed PMC analysis on the top-quark pair production up to next-to-next-to-leading-order level at the LHC. After applying PMC scale setting, the pQCD prediction for the top-quark charge asymmetry at the LHC has very small scale uncertainty; e.g. A(C broken vertical bar 7) (TeV;PMC) = (1.15(-0.03)(+0.01))%, A(C broken vertical bar 8) (TeV;PMC) = (1.03(+0.00)(+0.01))% and A(C broken vertical bar 14) (TeV;PMC) = (0.62(-0.02)(+0.00))%. The corresponding predictions using conventional scale setting are: A(C broken vertical bar 7) (TeV;PMC) = (1.23(-0.14)(+0.14))% A(C broken vertical bar 8) (TeV;Conv) = (1.11(-0.13)(+0.17))% and A(C broken vertical bar 14) (TeV;Conv) = (0.67(-0.05)(+0.05))%. In these predictions, the scale errors, are predicted by varying the initial renormalization and factorization scales in the ranges mu(init)(r) is an element of [m(t) /2,2m(t)] and mu(f) [m(t) / 2,2m(t)]. The PMC predictions are also in better agreement with the available ATLAS and CMS data. In addition, we have calculated the top-quark charge asymmetry assuming several typical cuts on the top-pair invariant mass M-t (t) over bar. For example, assuming M-t (t) over bar > 0.5 TeV and mu(f) = mu(init)(r) = m(t), we obtain A(C broken vertical bar 7) (TeV;PMC) = 2.67%, A(C broken vertical bar 8) (TeV;PMC) = 2.39%, and A(C broken vertical bar 14) (TeV;PMC) = 1.28%.
