A review of state-of-the-art QCD predictions for the transverse momentum of the Z boson and the Phi* distribution in neutral current DY production at the LHC and a critical discussion of the residual theoretical uncertainties.
A discussion on how high-energy Drell-Yan processes at LHC have the potential to improve some of the LEP electroweak precision tests, what is the validity of this approach, and future prospects.
The results of a comprehensive analysis of electroweak, QED and mixed QCD-electroweak corrections underlying the precise measurement of the W-boson mass at hadron colliders will be presented, and an up-to-date estimate of the main theoretical uncertainties of perturbative nature will be provided. These results can serve as a guideline for the assessment of the theoretical systematics at the...
We review the status of the global electroweak fit in the Standard Model (SM), including the latest theoretical and experimental updates, and compute limits on general new physics scenarios. These are compared and combined with the bounds obtained using Higgs boson observables measured at the LHC. We also present the projection of the fit with the improvements expected at future e+ e-...
A review of state-of-the-art QCD predictions for the transverse momentum distribution of the Z and W bosons in single EW gauge boson production at the LHC, which include NNLO QCD corrections matched to an all-order resummation. A critical discussion of the residual theoretical uncertainties will be provided.
A review of state-of-the-art QCD and EW predictions for multi-boson production and a discussion of the remaining open issues in prociding precision SM predictions for multi-boson processes at the LHC.
A discussion of the conditions for an effective field theory (EFT) to give an adequate low-energy description of an underlying physics beyond the Standard Model and how experimental results for multi-boson production could be reported, so that they admit a maximally broad range of theoretical interpretations in a wide range of energy scales. The talk should also include a discussion on global...
