NLO QCD corrections to polarised di-boson production in semi-leptonic final states

  title={NLO QCD corrections to polarised di-boson production in semi-leptonic final states},
  author={Ansgar Denner and Christoph Haitz and Giovanni Pelliccioli},
: Understanding the polarisation structure and providing precise predictions for multi-boson processes at the LHC is becoming urgent in the light of the upcoming run-3 and high-luminosity data. The CMS and ATLAS collaborations have already started using polarised predictions to perform template fits of the data, getting access to the polarisation of W and Z bosons. So far, only fully-leptonic decay channels have been considered in this perspective. The natural step forward is the investigation…

Enhancing the doubly-longitudinal polarization in WZ production at the LHC

We present new results for the theoretical prediction of doubly-polarized cross sections of $WZ$ events at the LHC using leptonic decays. Compared to the previous studies, two new kinematic cuts are

Polarized electroweak bosons in W+W− production at the LHC including NLO QCD effects

The measurement of polarization fractions of massive gauge bosons at the LHC provides an important check of the Standard Model and in particular of the Electroweak Symmetry Breaking mechanism. Owing

NLO EW and QCD corrections to polarized ZZ production in the four-charged-lepton channel at the LHC

Measuring the polarization of electroweak bosons at the LHC allows for important tests of the electroweak-symmetry-breaking mechanism that is realized in nature. Therefore, precise Standard Model

NNLO QCD + NLO EW with Matrix+OpenLoops: precise predictions for vector-boson pair production

We present the first combination of NNLO QCD and NLO EW corrections for vector-boson pair production at the LHC. We consider all final states with two, three and four charged leptons, including

Next-to-leading-order electroweak corrections to pp → W+W− → 4 leptons at the LHC

A bstractWe present results of the first calculation of next-to-leading-order electroweak corrections to W-boson pair production at the LHC that fully takes into account leptonic W-boson decays and

Next-to-leading-order electroweak corrections to the production of four charged leptons at the LHC

A bstractWe present a state-of-the-art calculation of the next-to-leading-order electroweak corrections to ZZ production, including the leptonic decays of the Z bosons into μ+μ−e+e− or μ+μ−μ+μ− final

W±Z production at the LHC: fiducial cross sections and distributions in NNLO QCD

A bstractWe report on the first fully differential calculation for W±Z production in hadron collisions up to next-to-next-to-leading order (NNLO) in QCD perturbation theory. Leptonic decays of the W

Fiducial polarization observables in hadronic WZ production: a next-to-leading order QCD+EW study

A bstractWe present a study at next-to-leading-order (NLO) of the process pp → W±Z → ℓνlℓ′+ℓ′−, where ℓ, ℓ′ = e, μ, at the Large Hadron Collider. We include the full NLO QCD corrections and the NLO

Massive gauge boson pair production at the LHC: A next-to-leading order story

Electroweak gauge boson pair production is one of the most important Standard Model processes at the LHC, not only because it is a benchmark process but also by its ability to probe the electroweak

Polarized vector boson scattering in the fully leptonic WZ and ZZ channels at the LHC

Isolating the scattering of longitudinal weak bosons at the LHC is an important tool to probe the ElectroWeak Symmetry Breaking mechanism. Separating polarizations of W and Z bosons is complicated,

Sensitivity to longitudinal vector boson scattering in semileptonic final states at the HL-LHC

Longitudinal vector boson scattering provides an important probe of electroweak symmetry breaking, bringing sensitivity to physics beyond the Standard Model as well as constraining properties of the
