NNLO QCD Corrections to W+jet Production in NNLO JET


Walker, Duncan; Glover, Nigel; Huss, Alexander Yohei; Gehrmann, Thomas; Gehrmann-De Ridder, Aude (2018). NNLO QCD Corrections to W+jet Production in NNLO JET. In: Loops and Legs conference 2018, St. Goar, Germany, 29 April 2018 - 4 May 2018.

Abstract

We give an overview of our calculation of the next-to-next-to-leading order (NNLO) QCD corrections to W + jet production in hadronic collisions. Phenomenological results for multiple differential distributions are compared to CMS data for 8 TeV proton–proton collisions. We further discuss the application of the calculation to the transverse momentum spectrum of inclusive W boson production, again accompanied by a comparison to 8 TeV CMS data. In both cases, the inclusion of NNLO QCD effects give an improved agreement between theory and data with considerably reduced scale uncertainties with respect to the next-to-leading order (NLO) results.
