Title: Comparison of the Z$$/\gamma^{*}$$ + jets to $$\gamma$$ + jets cross sections in pp collisions at $$\sqrt{s}$$ = 8 TeV

In this study, a comparison of the differential cross sections for the processes Z/γ * + jets and photon (γ)+jets is presented. The measurements are based on data collected with the CMS detector at √s = 8 TeV corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 19.7 fb –1. The differential cross sections and their ratios are presented as functions of p T. The measurements are also shown as functions of the jet multiplicity. Differential cross sections are obtained as functions of the ratio of the Z/γ* p T to the sum of all jet transverse momenta and of the ratio of the Z/γ* p T to the leading jet transverse momentum. The data are corrected for detector effects and are compared to simulations based on several QCD calculations.
