Description

We study WZ production with anomalous couplings (AC) at approximate NNLO
QCD using the LoopSim method in combination with the Monte Carlo
program VBFNLO. Higher order corrections to WZ production are
dominated by additional hard jet radiation. Those contributions are
insensitive to AC and should thus be suppressed in analyses. We do
this using a dynamical jet veto based on the transverse energy of the
QCD and EW final state particles. This removes jet dominated events
without introducing problematic logs like a fixed $p_\text{T}$ jet veto.
