Next-to-Leading Order W 5-Jet Production at the LHC
Bern, Zvi.
We present next-to-leading order QCD predictions for the total cross section and for a comprehensive set of transverse-momentum distributions in W + 5-jet production at the Large Hadron Collider. We also present ratios of total cross sections, and use them to obtain an extrapolation formula to an even larger number of jets. We include the decay of the W boson into leptons. This is the first such computation with six final-state vector bosons or jets. We use BlackHat together with Sherpa to carry... Show Full Abstract
We present next-to-leading order QCD predictions for the total cross section and for a comprehensive set of transverse-momentum distributions in W + 5-jet production at the Large Hadron Collider.

This is the first such computation with six final-state vector bosons or jets. We use BlackHat together with Sherpa to carry out the computation. Show Partial Abstract
