Abstract/Description: We calculate the process pp -> W+W- -> e(+)nu(e)mu(-)(nu) over bar (mu) at NLO QCD, including also effective field theory (EFT) operators mediating the ggW(+)W(-) interaction, which first occur at dimension eight. We further combine the NLO and EFT matrix elements produced by GOSAM with the HERWIG7/MATCHBOX framework, which offers the possibility to study the impact of a parton shower. We assess the effects of the anomalous couplings by comparing them to top-mass effects as well as uncertainties related to variations of the renormalisation, factorisation and hard shower scales.
