Precise QCD predictions for the production of a Z boson in association with a hadronic jet.

Gehrmann-De Ridder, A. and Gehrmann, T. and Glover, E.W.N. and Huss, A. and Morgan, T.A. (2016) 'Precise QCD predictions for the production of a Z boson in association with a hadronic jet.', Physical review letters., 117 (2). 022001.

Abstract

We compute the cross section and differential distributions for the production of a Z boson in association with a hadronic jet to next-to-next-to-leading order (NNLO) in perturbative QCD, including the leptonic decay of the Z boson. We present numerical results for the transverse momentum and rapidity distributions of both the Z boson and the associated jet at the LHC. We find that the NNLO corrections increase the NLO predictions by approximately 1% and significantly reduce the scale variation uncertainty.
