aMC@NLO predictions for Wjj production at the Tevatron


Frederix, Rikkert; Frixione, Stefano; Hirschi, Valentin; Maltoni, Fabio; Pittau, Roberto; Torrielli, Paolo (2012). aMC@NLO predictions for Wjj production at the Tevatron. Journal of High Energy Physics, 2012(2):1-14.

Abstract

We use aMC@NLO to predict the ℓν + 2-jet cross section at the NLO accuracy in QCD matched to parton shower simulations. We find that the perturbative expansion is well behaved for all the observables we study, and in particular for those relevant to the experimental analyses. We therefore conclude that NLO corrections to this process cannot be responsible for the excess of events in the dijet invariant mass observed by the CDF collaboration.
