Description

In this talk, I will review how quarkonia and their associated production -despite the debates regarding their production mechanisms- can provide us with useful information on double parton scatterings, on gluon TMDs (both in polarised and unpolarised protons) and on the (nuclear) gluon PDFs.

For that, I will report on recent studies of the production of quarkonium pairs, quarkonium + vector bosons and quarkonium+ heavy-flavour at LHC, Tevatron and AFTER@LHC. I will also discuss a new tool which we developed to account for the effect of the nuclear PDFs is a simple manner.
