We construct an event generator for pp→W + X→e + νX including complete O(α s ) corrections, and interface with initial- and final-state parton showers. Problems with negative weights and with double counting higher-order patron radiation are averted. We present results for W+n-jet production, and compare with results from complete tree-level calculations, and shower calculations off of the lowest-order 2→2 subprocess. Our approach gives the correct total cross section through O(α s ) and proper… CONTINUE READING
