* WZ MC status * Reviewed results * Suggestion for excluding top diagrams * Asked tail at high mass in Z mass distribution * Suggested comparison after Z mass cut and normalization

2017 01 13

  • Disc on DYphi* unfolding model uncertainty
  • Crossover point in madgraph vs powheg unfolding uncerainty for normalized unfolded distribution lead to artificial low point in uncerintaity
