Abstract

Measurements are presented of single W and Z boson production in a vector-boson-fusion topology using ATLAS data collected at the LHC. The measurements include the fiducial cross sections in √s = 7 and 8 TeV pp collisions of W and Z production with jets produced via the electroweak interaction, of which vector-boson fusion is a component, and with jets produced via the strong process. Differential cross section measurements are also shown.
