Rapidity distributions in exclusive Z+jet and γ+jet events in pp collisions at s√=7  TeV


CMS Collaboration; Chatrchyan, S; Khachatryan, V; Sirunyan, A M; et al; Chiochia, V; Kilminster, B; Robmann, P (2013). Rapidity distributions in exclusive Z+jet and γ+jet events in pp collisions at s√=7 TeV. Physical Review D (Particles, Fields, Gravitation and Cosmology), 88(11):112009.

Abstract

Rapidity distributions are presented for events containing either a Z boson or a photon with a single jet in proton-proton collisions produced at the CERN LHC. The data, collected with the CMS detector at s√=7  TeV, correspond to an integrated luminosity of 5.0  fb−1. The individual rapidity distributions of the boson and the jet are consistent within 5% with expectations from perturbative QCD. However, QCD predictions for the sum and the difference in rapidities of the two final-state objects show discrepancies with CMS data. In particular, next-to-leading-order QCD calculations, and two common Monte Carlo event generators using different methods to match matrix-element partons with parton showers, appear inconsistent with the data as well as with each other.
