Drell-Yan lepton pair production at NNLO QCD with parton showers

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

We present a simple approach to combine NNLO QCD calculations and parton showers, based on the unlops technique. We apply the method to the computation of Drell-Yan lepton-pair production at the Large Hadron Collider. We comment on possible improvements and intrinsic uncertainties.
