Description

We present measurements of inclusive W/Z + n jet cross sections (n=1-4), presented as total inclusive cross sections and differentially in the $n^{th}$ jet transverse momentum and rapidity, as well as the heavy flavor content in these jets up to n=2. The measurements are made using 4.2 to 6 fb$^{-1}$ of data collected by the D0 detector at the Fermilab Tevatron Collider. The measurements are compared to next-to-leading order (NLO) perturbative QCD calculations.
