Johnson, Mark and Maître, Daniel (2018) 'Strong coupling constant extraction from high-multiplicity Z + jets observables.', Physical review D., 97 (5). 054013.
We present a strong coupling constant extraction at next-to-leading order QCD accuracy using ATLAS Z + 2 ,3,4 jets data. This is the first extraction using processes with a dependency on high powers of the coupling constant. We obtain values of the strong coupling constant at the Z mass compatible with the world average and with uncertainties commensurate with other next-to-leading order extractions at hadron colliders. Our most conservative result for the strong coupling constant is α S ( M Z ) = 0.117 8 + 0.0051 − 0.0043 .
