Next-to-leading-order electroweak corrections to the production of four charged leptons at the LHC

We present a state-of-the-art calculation of the next-to-leading-order electroweak corrections to ZZ production, including the leptonic decays of the Z bosons into μ + μ −e+e− or μ + μ − μ + μ − final states. We use complete leading-order and next-to-leading-order matrix elements for four-lepton production, including contributions of virtual photons and all off-shell effects of Z ...

Non-factorizable photonic corrections to resonant production and decay of many unstable particles

Electroweak radiative corrections to the production of high-multiplicity final states with several intermediate resonances in most cases can be sufficiently well described by the leading contribution of an expansion about the resonance poles. In this approach, also known as pole approximation, corrections are classified into separately gauge-invariant factorizable and ...

Techniques for the treatment of IR divergences in decay processes at NLO and application to the top-quark decay

We present the extension of two general algorithms for the treatment of infrared singularities arising in electroweak corrections to decay processes at next-to-leading order: the dipole subtraction formalism and the one-cutoff slicing method. The former is extended to the case of decay kinematics which has not been considered in the literature so far. The latter is generalised to ...

NLO QCD and electroweak corrections to Z + γ production with leptonic Z-boson decays

The next-to-leading-order electroweak corrections to \( \mathrm{pp}\to {l}^{+}{l}^{-}/\overline{\nu}\nu +\upgamma +X \) production, including all off-shell effects of intermediate Z bosons in the complex-mass scheme, are calculated for LHC energies, revealing the typically expected large corrections of tens of percent in the TeV range. Contributions from quark-photon and ...

NLO QCD and electroweak corrections to W + γ production with leptonic W-boson decays

We present a calculation of the next-to-leading-order electroweak corrections to W+γ production, including the leptonic decay of the W boson and taking into account all off-shell effects of the W boson, where the finite width of the W boson is implemented using the complex-mass scheme. Corrections induced by incoming photons are fully included and find particular emphasis in the ...

Gluon-induced Higgs-strahlung at next-to-leading order QCD

Gluon-induced contributions to the associated production of a Higgs and a Z boson are calculated with NLO accuracy in QCD. They constitute a significant contribution to the cross section for this process. The perturbative correction factor (K-factor) is calculated in the limit of infinite top-quark and vanishing bottom-quark masses. The qualitative similarity of the results to the ...
