6 f(-p1) + f(-p2) W-(e-(p3) + ν(p4))

6.1 W-boson production, processes 1,6

These processes represent the production of a W boson which subsequently decays leptonically. This process can be calculated at LO, NLO, and NNLO. NLO calculations can be performed by dipole subtraction, zero-jettiness slicing and qT-slicing. NNLO calculations can be performed by zero-jettiness slicing and qT-slicing.

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