Description

WW production in the Standard Model is an important channel on its own and also a critical background to Higgs studies at the LHC. In all public LHC measurements thus far this channel and has had excesses compared to the SM prediction. We explore transverse momentum resummation effects on the the shape of the pp->W+W-> dileptonic differential cross section, which translates into changes in fiducial cross section. We find that there are non-negligible resummation effects on the existing theory prediction.
