Precise QCD predictions for the production of a $Z$ boson in association with a hadronic jet


Gehrmann-De Ridder, A; Gehrmann, T; Glover, E W N; Huss, A; Morgan, T A (2016). Precise QCD predictions for the production of a $Z$ boson in association with a hadronic jet. Physical Review Letters, 117(2):022001.

Abstract

We compute the cross section and differential distributions for the production of a $Z$ boson in association with a hadronic jet to next-to-next-to-leading order (NNLO) in perturbative QCD, including the leptonic decay of the $Z$ boson. We present numerical results for the transverse momentum and rapidity distributions of both the $Z$ boson and the associated jet at the LHC. We find that the NNLO corrections increase the NLO predictions by approximately 1% and significantly reduce the scale variation uncertainty.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
