# Accurate single- and double-differential resummation of colour-singlet processes with MATRIX+RADISH: W+W− production at the LHC

@article{Kallweit2020AccurateSA, title={Accurate single- and double-differential resummation of colour-singlet processes with MATRIX+RADISH: W+W− production at the LHC}, author={Stefan Kallweit and Emanuele Re and Luca Rottoli and Marius Wiesemann}, journal={arXiv: High Energy Physics - Phenomenology}, year={2020} }

We present the combination of fully differential cross sections for colour-singlet production processes at next-to-next-to-leading order (NNLO) QCD obtained with MATRIX and all-order resummation through RadISH. This interface allows us to achieve unprecedented accuracy for various transverse observables in $2 \rightarrow 2$ production processes. As an important application we consider $W^+ W^-$ production at the LHC, more precisely the full leptonic process $pp\to \ell^+\ell^{\prime\, -}\nu_…
