Parton distributions for the LHC
AbstractWe present updated leading-order, next-to-leading order and next-to-next-to-leading order parton distribution functions (“MSTW 2008”) determined from global analysis of hard-scattering dataExpand
Parton distributions for the LHC
We present a preliminary set of updated NLO parton distributions. For the first time we have a quantitative extraction of the strange quark and antiquark distributions and their uncertaintiesExpand
Uncertainties on αS in global PDF analyses and implications for predicted hadronic cross sections
AbstractWe determine the uncertainty on the strong coupling αS due to the experimental errors on the data fitted in global analysis of hard-scattering data, within the standard framework ofExpand

Parton distributions incorporating QED contributions
Abstract.We perform a global parton analysis of deep inelastic and related hard-scattering data, including ${{\mathcal{O}}}(\alpha_{\rm QED})$ corrections to the parton evolution. Although theExpand
Hard interactions of quarks and gluons: a primer for LHC physics
In this paper, we will develop the perturbative framework for the calculation of hard-scattering processes. We will undertake to provide both a reasonably rigorous development of the formalism ofExpand
Heavy-quark mass dependence in global PDF analyses and 3- and 4-flavour parton distributions
We study the sensitivity of our recent MSTW 2008 NLO and NNLO PDF analyses to the values of the charm- and bottom-quark masses, and we provide additional public PDF sets for a wide range of theseExpand
Handbook of LHC Higgs Cross Sections: 2. Differential Distributions
This Report summarises the results of the second year's activities of the LHC Higgs Cross Section Working Group. The main goal of the working group was to present the state of the art of HiggsExpand
Physics interplay of the LHC and the ILC
Physics at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) and the International e(+)e(-) Linear Collider (ILC) will be complementary in many respects, as has been demonstrated at previous generations of hadron andExpand
