Description

Run 1 of the LHC has reported routine excesses in WW measurements both at 7 and 8 TeV. I shall demonstrate that accounting for higher order QCD effects through pT resummation can account for some of the differences between theory and experiment. A closely related approach; jet veto resummation has also had success explaining this excess. I will also talk about where these methods agree and disagree and how experimentally these effects could be tested.
