We present the analysis and comparison of predictions of the main codes for electroweak radiative corrections for the Drell–Yan process in the high lepton pair invariant mass region.



We would like to thank the organizers of the International Session-Conference of the Section of Nuclear Physics of the Physical Sciences Department of the Russian Academy of Sciences “Physics of fundamental interactions” for the possibility of presenting this study to the leading scientists in the field of the particle physics. We also thank A.B. Arbuzov, S.G. Bondarenko, and L.V. Kalinovskaya for assistance in comparison with the code SANC.
