Description

Diboson measurements at the LHC require precision that can be reached only by state-of-the-art perturbative computations. In this talk, I will review the most important higher-order corrections to diboson processes and their consistent combination. This involves NNLO QCD corrections, NLO EW corrections and NLO QCD corrections to the loop-induced gg contribution, all of which are necessary to reach the percent-level precision goal set by the LHC experiments. Also the combination of NNLO QCD with all order results is discussed for diboson production.
