45 f(-p1) + f(-p2) Z(e-(p3) + e+(p4)) + f(p5) + f(p6) + f(p7)

45.1 Z + 3 jets production, processes 45, 47

These processes represent the production of a Z boson and 3 jets, including also the effect of a virtual photon when the Z decays to electrons (nproc=45), but not when it decays to neutrinos. The Z∕γ* decays to an e+e- pair (nproc=45) or into three species of neutrino (nproc=47). The calculation may be performed at LO only.

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

45.2 Plotter

nplotter_Zjets.f is the default plotting routine.
