Description

I review the current status of knowledge of the parton distributions (PDF) of the nucleon, with particular emphasis on recent progress on the determination of PDF uncertainties and on theoretical and phenomneological issues which limit the current PDF accuracy. I then discuss the implications of PDF uncertainties on LHC processes, with specific references to standard candles and Higgs production.
