Description

Measurements of W/Z-boson production in association with jets provide important test of perturbative QCD prediction and also yield information about the parton distribution functions of the proton. In this talk, differential cross-sections for vector-boson production in association with jets using proton-proton collisions collected by the ATLAS experiment are presented. The data are corrected for detector inefficiency and resolution and compared to state-of-the-art theoretical predictions. The impact of the choice of parton distribution function is also presented.
