Abstract (data abstract)
The production of W and Z bosons in association with jets is studied in the forward region of proton-proton collisions collected at a centre-of-mass energy of 8 TeV by the LHCb experiment, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of $1.98 \pm 0.02$ fb$^{−1}$. The W boson is identified using its decay to a muon and a neutrino, while the Z boson is identified through its decay to a muon pair. Total cross-sections are measured and combined into charge ratios, asymmetries, and ratios of W$^{\pm}$+jet and Z$^0$+jet production cross-sections. Differential measurements are also performed as a function of both boson and jet kinematic variables. All results are in agreement with Standard Model predictions.

Version 2 modifications: Partially solve YODA export issues when used in RIVET analysis module. Re-encode the correlation matrices in format easier to process by code.
