With the lack of direct evidence for physics beyond the Standard Model at the Large Hadron Collider, precision has become of foremost importance even at a hadron collider. Indirect searches provide an excellent chance to probe New Physics through tiniest deviations from Standard-Model predictions. I will discuss recent developments on the theoretical side, showing the importance of high-precision predictions, in particular, related to vector-boson pair production processes. I will then focus on advancements in theoretical predictions, which are necessary to match the experimental demands. These involve highest-precision QCD and EW corrections, their inclusion in LHC event simulations, and the characterization of New-Physics effects via effective field theory, which highlight my current and future research activities.

Im Rahmen des Vortrages findet eine Lehrprobe zum Thema "Periodic Potentials in Quantum Theory" statt.
