Abstract (data abstract)
The dynamics of isolated-photon production in association with a jet in proton-proton collisions at a centre-of-mass energy of 13 TeV are studied with the ATLAS detector at the LHC using a dataset with an integrated luminosity of $3.2$~fb$^{−1}$. Photons are required to have transverse energies above 125 GeV. Jets are identified using the anti-$k_t$ algorithm with radius parameter $R=0.4$ and required to have transverse momenta above 100 GeV. Measurements of isolated-photon plus jet cross sections are presented as functions of the leading-photon transverse energy, the leading-jet transverse momentum, the azimuthal angular separation between the photon and the jet, the photon-jet invariant mass and the scattering angle in the photon-jet centre-of-mass system. Tree-level plus parton-shower predictions from SHERPA and PYTHIA as well as next-to-leading-order QCD predictions from JETPHOX and SHERPA are compared to the measurements. Information about bin-to-bin correlation of the systematic uncertainties: The following uncertaintes are not correlated bin-to-bin: sysPhotonRES, sysPhotonID, sysEtisoGap, sysPhotonInvertVar, sysEtisoUpperLimit, sysEtisoMC and sysMCStat. The different components of the sysPhotonES and sysJetES uncertainties (only the total uncertainty is given here) are fully correlated bin-to-bin.
