Weak gauge boson radiation in parton showers

Christiansen, Jesper Roy LU and Sjöstrand, Torbjörn LU (2014) In Journal of High Energy Physics 04, 115(4). p.37-115
Abstract
The emission of W and Z gauge bosons off quarks is included in a traditional QCD + QED shower. The unitarity of the shower algorithm links the real radiation of the weak gauge bosons to the negative weak virtual corrections. The shower evolution process leads to a competition between QCD, QED and weak radiation, and allows for W and Z boson production inside jets. Various effects on LHC physics are studied, both at low and high transverse momenta, and effects at higher-energy hadron colliders are outlined.
