High-Energy Physics & RIKEN Theory Seminar

"Electroweak precision physics with W and Z bosons"

Presented by Doreen Wackeroth, SUNY at Buffalo

Wednesday, March 11, 2009, 2:00 pm — Small Seminar Room, Bldg. 510

The production of W and Z bosons is one of the best understood and most precisely studied processes. However, in view of the increased experimental precision at the Tevatron and the LHC, the available calculations and tools that provide predictions for W and Z boson observables may not be sufficient. I will give an overview of the theory status and recent developments with special emphasis on the treatment of higher-order corrections.
