WZ 18.2pb pythia(Z2)  
ZZ 5.9pb pythia(Z2)  
ZZ->4l 100.84fb pythia σ from MCFMv5.8 is 95fb, plus another 5.8fb from gg2ZZ.
Does not include single-resonant diagrams
ZZ->4l 143 fb powheg not yet used ; includes signle resonant but not gg->ZZ;
(σ from MCFMv6 includes also gg->ZZ, we subtracted it to get the 143 fb)
gg2ZZ -> 2l2l' 9.29 fb gg2ZZ not yet used
gg2ZZ -> 4l 6.63 fb gg2ZZ not yet used
