A combination is presented of all inclusive deep inelastic cross sections measured by the H1 and ZEUS collaborations in neutral and charged current unpolarised ep scattering at HERA. The data correspond to a luminosity of about 1 fb-1 and span six orders of magnitude in negative four-momentum-transfer squared, Q², and Bjorken x. They include data taken at proton beam energies of 920, 820, 575...

I will present NNPDF3.0, the first set of parton distributions determined with a methodology validated by a closure test. NNPDF3.0 uses a global dataset including HERA-II deep-inelastic inclusive cross-sections, the combined HERA charm data, jet production from ATLAS and CMS, vector boson rapidity and transverse momentum distributions from ATLAS, CMS and LHCb, W + c data from CMS and top quark...

We present preliminary results of a new global QCD analysis of PDFs
from the CTEQ-Jefferson Lab Collaboration (dubbed "CJ15"), which
includes several new data sets and recent theoretical developments.
In particular, we study the constraints from new D0 data on *W* boson
asymmetries on the *d/u* PDF ratio at large *x*, and, indirectly, on
the models of nuclear corrections in the deuteron. ...

The new combined inclusive HERA cross sections were input to QCD
analyses at NNLO, NLO and LO providing a new set of parton
distribution functions, HERAPDF2.0. Besides the small experimental
uncertainties, model and parameterisation uncertainties were also
considered. The consistency of data and the QCD fit was tested for
variants of the fit such as the treatment of heavy flavour...

The uncertainties of protons parton distribution functions (PDFs) play a dominant role for the precision tests of the Standard Model (SM) and they also impact substantially the theory predictions of Beyond SM high mass production. We present the HERAFitter project which provides a unique open-source software framework for the determination of the proton's PDFs and for the interpretation of...

A method to facilitate the inclusion of collider data in the PDF fits, APPLGRID, has been extended to the NNLO accuracy. The method stores the matrix elements of the NNLO calculations to the look-up tables. This allows the a posteriori inclusion of the PDF sets and the strong coupling to the cross-section calculations.

The current nuclear PDF analyses are mainly constrained by fixed-target
DY and DIS data which provide direct constraints primarily for quarks at
$x > 0.001$. Some constraints for gluons are provided by the inclusive
pion production data in d+Au collisions at RHIC but due to the limited
kinematic reach of the data the small-$x$ nuclear gluon PDFs remain
practically unconstrained in the...

Hard exclusive processes on the nucleon have been the subject of intense studies for the past 15 years. In the regime where the scattering amplitude is factorized into a hard and a soft part, such reactions provide access to Generalized Parton Distributions (GPDs). These quantities contain informations about the longitudinal momentum and the transverse spatial distributions of quarks and...

Since the discovery of the EMC effect over 30 years ago, it’s been of great theoretical interest and studied in several experimental measurements. No unified picture arose to explain the underlying cause of per nucleon structure function modification in nuclei.

Through proton-proton collisions, STAR is well equipped to measure the e$^{\pm}$ leptonic decays of $W^{\pm}$ bosons in the mid-rapidity region (-1.1 $\le \eta \le $ 1.1) at $\sqrt{s}$ = 500/510 GeV. The $W$ cross section ratio ($W^+/W^-$) is sensitive to unpolarized $u$,...

At the same time it enables us to extrapolate to...
