Abstract
After a brief introduction to the state of the art of theoretical predictions for electroweak vector-boson production with both top and bottom quarks at the LHC, we review the case of Z-boson production with b jets, and discuss the impact of NLO QCD+EW corrections and finite b-mass effects on the theoretical prediction for Z+b jet production.
