Title: Next-to-leading-order QCD corrections to W{sup +}Z and W{sup -}Z production via vector-boson fusion

Abstract

We present the calculation of the next-to-leading-order QCD corrections to electroweak pp{yields}e{sup +}{nu}{sub e}{mu}{sup +}{mu}{sup -}jj and pp{yields}e{sup -}{nu}{sub e}{mu}{sup +}{mu}{sup -}jj production at the CERN LHC in the form of a fully flexible parton-level Monte Carlo program. The QCD corrections to the total cross sections are modest, changing the leading-order results by less than 10%. At the Born level, the shape of kinematic distributions can depend significantly on the choice of factorization scale. This theoretical uncertainty is strongly reduced by the inclusion of the next-to-leading-order QCD corrections.
