The production of jets, photons and gauge bosons in association with jets at hadron colliders provides a stringent test of perturbative QCD and can be used to probe the gluon density function of the proton. In this letter we present recent measurements of the inclusive jet cross section in data collected at center-of-mass energies of 8 TeV and 13 TeV. The measurements have been performed differentially in various kinematic and angular observables and are compared with state-of-the-art predictions at NLO in pQCD. ATLAS has performed precise measurements of the inclusive production of isolated prompt photons in data collected at center-of-mass energies of 8 and 13 TeV, differential in both rapidity and the photon transverse momentum. The measurements are compared with NLO pQCD calculations and with several MC generators. The cross section of photons, W and Z bosons in association with one or more jets have been measured differentially in various observables at center-of-mass energies of 8 and 13 TeV and compared with state-of-the-art pQCD calculations up to NNLO QCD and NLO EWK as well as LO and NLO ME+PS generators. Dedicated phase spaces sensitive to emission of massive bosons collinear with jets or the electroweak production of vector bosons are tested.
