The production cross section of highly boosted vector bosons (V = W, Z or gamma) recoiling against jets is studied, with CMS data, differentially as function of the transverse momentum and angular correlations of the final state particles. The measurements are confronted with different state-of-the-art theory predictions that include next-to-leading order calculations and matrix-element plus parton shower event simulations.
