@article{Biedermann2016NexttoleadingorderEC, title={Next-to-leading-order electroweak corrections to pp → W+W− → 4 leptons at the LHC}, author={Benedikt Biedermann and Marina Billoni and Ansgar Denner and Stefan Dittmaier and Lars Hofer and Barbara J{\"a}ger and Lukas Salfelder}, journal={Journal of High Energy Physics}, year={2016}, volume={2016}, pages={1-32} }

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 off-shell effects. Employing realistic event selections, we discuss the corrections in situations that are typical for the study of W-boson pairs as a signal process or of Higgs-boson decays H → WW∗, to which W-boson pair production represents an irreducible background. In particular, we compare the…
