Abstract
The production of jets in association with vector bosons is an important process to study QCD in a multi-scale environment. The ATLAS collaboration has performed measurements of vector boson+jets cross sections, differential in several kinematic variables, in proton-proton collision data taken at center-of-mass energies of 8 TeV and 13 TeV. The measurements are compared to state-of-the art theory predictions and can be used to constrain the gluon PDF.
In data collected at 8 TeV, the collaboration has measured the production of W boson+jets with a large transverse momentum of the leading jet, which enriches the collinear production of the gauge boson and a jet. The measurements are compared to state-of-the-art QCD calculations and Monte Carlo simulations.
