In this talk the application of the recently introduced methods to merge NLO calculations of successive jet multiplicities to the production of top pairs in association with jets will be discussed. Emphasis will be put on the achieved theoretical accuracy and the associated perturbative and non-perturbative error estimates. The production of a vector boson in association, constituting a main background, will be discussed on the same footing.
