Description

We present recent developments in the theoretical description of
processes leading to the production of heavy flavours, which, together
with the most recent experimental data, are of interest for further
constraining present fits of Parton Distribution Functions. We compare
different approaches, and, for selected cases, we show the impact of
using the MSbar scheme as an alternative to the on-shell scheme for
renormalizing the heavy-quark masses.
