Description

The production of vector bosons (V = W, Z or γ) in association with jets is a stringent test of perturbative QCD and is a background process in searches for new physics. Total and differential cross-section measurements of vector bosons produced in association with jets and heavy flavour quarks in proton-proton collisions at the LHC are presented. The measurements are compared to next-to leading order calculations and event simulations that devise matrix element calculations interfaced with parton showers.
