Description

I present new results for W-boson production at large transverse momentum at the LHC and the Tevatron. The contribution of soft-gluon corrections is derived from NNLL resummation and added to the exact NLO result. Numerical results for the approximate NNLO W-boson transverse momentum distributions are derived. The scale and PDF uncertainties are discussed.
