42 f(-p1) + f(-p2) Z(3 * (ν(p3) + ν(p4))) + f(p5)

42.1 Z+ jet production, processes 41–43

These processes represent the production of a Z boson and a single jet, where the Z subsequently decays either into electrons (nproc=41), neutrinos (nproc=42) or bottom quarks (nproc=43). Where appropriate, the effect of a virtual photon is also included. The calculation may be performed at LO and NLO and NNLO[1] although the NLO, (NNLO) calculation of process 43 does not include radiation from the bottom quarks. The one-loop virtual amplitudes are taken from the appendix IV of ref. [2].

When removebr is true in process 41, the Z boson does not decay.
