Next-to-leading order QCD corrections for W+W- pair production in association with two jets at hadron colliders
Physical Review D - Particles, Fields, Gravitation and Cosmology 83 (2011)
We compute the NLO QCD corrections to the pair production of W-bosons in association with two jets at the Tevatron and the LHC. This process is an important background to heavy Higgs-boson production in association with two jets, either in gluon or weak boson fusion. We consider leptonic decays of W-bosons and include all the spin correlations exactly. For natural choices of the renormalization scale, the NLO QCD corrections to pp(p̄)→W +W-jj are moderate but different for various values of the center-of-mass collision energy at the LHC and the Tevatron, emphasizing the need to compute them explicitly. © 2011 American Physical Society.
