Description

The associated production of vector bosons and jets originating from heavy-flavour (c or b) quarks is a large background source in measurements of other standard model processes, Higgs boson studies, and many searches for physics beyond the standard model. The study of events with a vector boson accompanied by heavy-flavour jets is crucial to refine the theoretical calculations in perturbative QCD, as well as to validate associated Monte Carlo predictions. Differential cross sections are measured as a function of several kinematic observables with the CMS detector.
