Monte Carlo developments and data comparison

Summary, in English

During the last years, the improvement in predictions for LHC processes has been enormous. In this talk the following two topics are covered. First, using the FxFx merging prescription, the prediction and data comparison for a vector boson in association with multiple jets are considered at NLO accuracy. Second, we show some results for the newly developed extension of the MINLO method that allows, by way of imposing numerical unitarity, the elimination of a merging scale for arbitrary process. This talk is based on Refs. [1, 2].
