We study the transverse momentum resummation effects for the Z boson plus jet associated production at the LHC within the transverse momentum dependent (TMD) factorization formalism. The large logarithm ln (Q2/q⊥2) with Q ≫ q⊥ has been resumed to Next-to-Leading Logarithm (NLL) accuracy. We compare our numerical results to the CMS data by reweighting method. It shows that our prediction agree with the data very well.
