Description

We study both the single and double parton scattering contributions to 4 jet production in kt-factorization using off-shell matrix elements and KMR PDFs. We compare them to the collinear case and find that the expected relevance of the Double Parton Scattering contribution is tamed in the kt-factorization framework: in particular, kinematic cuts should be chosen carefully as we thoroughly discuss.
