The production of jets in association with a W or Z boson in proton­proton collisions at 7 TeV represent an important process to study QCD in a multi­scale environment. The cross sections, differential in several kinematics variables, have been measured up to high jet multiplicities and compared to new higher­order QCD calculations. The ratio of (Z + a single jet)/(W + a single jet) can provide a very precise test of QCD and has also been measured. Overall, the cross sections demonstrate the need for the inclusion of higher­multiplicity matrix elements in the calculations, even in cases where a parton shower simulation is present.
