ILL - ( TH ) - 05 - 04 February 2 , 2008 Production of a Z Boson and Two Jets with One Heavy - Quark Tag

Abstract

We present a next-to-leading-order calculation of the production of a Z boson with two jets, one or more of which contains a heavy quark (Q = c, b). We show that the cross section with only one heavy-quark jet is larger than that with two heavyquark jets at both the Fermilab Tevatron and the CERN LHC. These processes are the dominant irreducible backgrounds… (More)
