Description

Drell-Yan production of Z and W bosons is a very important process for physics studies at hadron colliders. At the moment, the theoretical prediction includes the NNLO calculation in QCD, together with the resummation of logarithmic terms coming from soft gluon emission up to the next-to-next-to-leading logarithmic accuracy. In the talk, I will present the analytic calculation of the mixed alpha alpha_S two-loop virtual corrections.
