NLO QCD Predictions for W+3 jets

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

In this contribution we present results from the NLO computation of the production of a W boson in association with three jets in hadronic collisions. The results are obtained by combining two programs: BlackHat for the virtual one-loop matrix elements and Sherpa for the real-emission contributions. We present results for the Tevatron and the LHC, and address the issue of the choice of a common factorization and renormalization scale for this process.
