  • Abstract Parton Distribution Functions (PDFs) are essential non-perturbative inputs for calculation of any observable with hadronic initial states. These PDFs are released by individual groups as discrete grids as a function of the Bjorken- x and energy scale Q . The LHAPDF project maintains a repository of PDFs from various groups in a new standardized LHAPDF6  format, additionally older formats such as the CTEQ PDS grid format are still in use. ManeParse  is a package that provides access to… CONTINUE READING
