Four-lepton production at hadron colliders: aMC@NLO predictions with theoretical uncertainties


Frederix, Rikkert; Frixione, Stefano; Hirschi, Valentin; Maltoni, Fabio; Pittau, Roberto; Torrielli, Paolo (2012). Four-lepton production at hadron colliders: aMC@NLO predictions with theoretical uncertainties. Journal of High Energy Physics, 2012(2).

Abstract

We use aMC@NLO to study the production of four charged leptons at the LHC, performing parton showers with both HERWIG and P ythia6. Our underlying matrix element calculation features the full next-to-leading order mathcal{O}left( {{α_s}} right) result and the mathcal{O}left( {α_s^2} right) contribution of the gg channel, and it includes all off-shell, spin-correlation, virtual-photon-exchange, and interference effects. We present several key distributions together with the corresponding theoretical uncertainties. These are obtained through a process-independent technique that allows aMC@NLO to compute scale and PDF uncertainties in a fully automated way and at no extra CPU-time cost.

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.
