Parton Shower Corrections to Vector-Boson Fusion Processes at the Large Hadron Collider in Next-to-Leading Order QCD Precision

Schissler, Franziska

A rather clean environment for property measurements at the LHC is provided by vector-boson fusion (VBF) processes. To give reliable predictions for distributions, several VBF processes have been matched to parton showers at NLO accuracy. In addition, the program REPOLO is discussed, which has been developed to reweight SM VBF Higgs events to account for BSM physics and signal-background interference effects.
