Description

We present a study of jets produced in association with vector bosons production in pp collisions at center-of-mass energy of 7 TeV using the full CMS 2010 data set, corresponding to 36 pb−1. The transverse energy distribution of the reconstructed leading jets is measured and compared to theoretical expectations. The jet multiplicity distributions are efficiency corrected and unfolded . The ratios of multiplicities, sigma(V+n+1)/sigma(V+n) and sigma(W +n)/sigma(Z +n) where n stands for n jets, are also presented.
