Precise predictions for V+ jets dark matter backgrounds

Abstract:

High-energy jets recoiling against missing transverse energy (MET) are powerful probes of dark matter at the LHC. Searches based on large MET signatures require a precise control of the Z(νν)¯ +jet background in the signal region. This can be achieved by taking accurate data in control regions dominated by Z(+−)+jet, W(ν)+jet and γ +jet production, and extrapolating to the Z(νν)¯ +jet background by means of precise theoretical predictions. In this context, recent advances in perturbative calc...
