dc.description.abstractA study is presented on the production of vector boson (W and Z0) events in association with recoiling hadronic activity in the form of hadronic jets, using proton-proton collisions at the LHC. The dataset was taken by the ATLAS detector during the 2011 data-taking run, at a centre of mass energy p s = 7 TeV, and corresponds to an integrated luminosity of 4.6 fb􀀀1. A measurement of the cross-section ratio of W+jets Z+jets events is de ned, reducing the large systematic uncertainties inherent in the experimental measurement of such events. Inclusive and di erential cross-sections are presented for W+jets Z+jets , as a function of a range of kinematic variables, and are compared to state-of- the-art theoretical predictions.en_US
