Description

Fiducial differential cross sections are reliable observables that the LHC is providing more and more precise measurements. From the theory point of view, event generators could simulate the underlying processes and apply the same experimental selection criterion to reduce the systematical errors when comparing with data. I will introduce some of the implementations and simulations from NNLOJET package with the-state-of-the-art theory precisions at NNLO QCD and above then illustrate their future applications when comparing with LHC data.
