Next-to-leading order QCD corrections to Wγ production in association with two jets

Francisco Campanario, Matthias Kerner, Le Duc Ninh, Dieter Zeppenfeld

The QCD-induced W±γ production channels in association with two jets are computed at next-to-leading order QCD accuracy. The W bosons decay leptonically and full off-shell and finite width effects as well as spin correlations are taken into account. These processes are important backgrounds to beyond StandardModel physics searches and also relevant to test the nature of the quartic gauge couplings of the StandardModel. The next-to-leading order corrections reduce the scale uncertainty significantly and show a nontrivial phase space dependence. Our code will be publicly available as part of the parton level Monte Carlo program VBFNLO.
