  • We briefly summarise the “MSTW 2008” determination of parton distribution functions (PDFs), and subsequent follow-up studies, before reviewing some topical issues concerning the PDF dependence of cross sections at the Tevatron and LHC. We update a recently published study of benchmark Standard Model total cross sections ( W , Z , gg → H and t t ¯ production) at the 7 TeV LHC, where we account for all publicly available PDF sets and we compare to LHC data for W, Z, and t t ¯ production. We show… CONTINUE READING
