I give an overview of recent progress in the simulation of final states involving top-quarks and vector bosons pair. First I’ll discuss the recently found solutions needed to simulate fully differential top pair production (pp → b bbar + 4 leptons) at NLO+PS accuracy, retaining off-shellness and interference effects exactly. In the second part, I’ll review the MiNLO (Multi-scale Improved NLO) method, and then show a recent application, namely the simultaneous NLO+PS description of WW and WW + 1 jet production.

Metadata are provided both in "article" format (very similar to INSPIRE) as this helps creating
very compact bibliographies which can be beneficial to authors and
readers, and in "proceeding" format
which is more detailed and complete.
