QCD and Hadron Structure

Next generation nuclear PDFs and their relevance to hadron structure



Primary authors


In this talk, I will give a short overview of the present status in global analyses of nuclear parton distribution functions (PDFs) with an emphasis on their extraction from the CERN-LHC proton-lead data. I will discuss the relevance of treating systematically the free-proton PDF uncertainties and their correlations with the nuclear modifications. I will also briefly discuss how the nuclear PDFs and their uncertainties can in turn impact the studies of proton and meson structure.
