Description

This meeting is dedicated to physics modeling issues in the Mw measurement at the LHC, and follows up on an initial meeting held in Firenze:

https://indico.cern.ch/event/340393/

We intend to discuss the following items:

  • generator developments (higher-order corrections; polarization; reweighting...)
  • developments in perturbative QCD and resummation
  • PDF fits and uncertainties
  • reports and questions from the experiments
