I will discuss the NLO QCD corrections to top quark pair production in association with a jet in the di-lepton channel. The calculation includes all non-resonant diagrams, interferences and off-shell effects of the top quark, as well as non-resonant and off-shell effects due to the finite W gauge boson width. This constitutes the first fully realistic NLO computation for top quark pair production with a final state jet in hadronic collisions. I will also present numerical results for total cross sections and differential distributions for the LHC at 8 and 13 TeV.
The Particle Physics Theory seminar is a weekly series of talks reflecting the diverse interests of the group. Topics include analytic and numerical calculations based on the Standard Model of elementary particle physics, theories exploring new physics, as well as more formal developments in gauge theories and gravity..
