Transverse momentum dependent gluon density from DIS precision data

  title={Transverse momentum dependent gluon density from DIS precision data},
  author={Francesco Hautmann and H. T. Jung},
  journal={Nuclear Physics},
Abstract The combined measurements of proton's structure functions in deeply inelastic scattering at the HERA collider provide high-precision data capable of constraining parton density functions over a wide range of the kinematic variables. We perform fits to these data using transverse momentum dependent QCD factorization and CCFM evolution. The results of the fits to precision measurements are used to make a determination of the nonperturbative transverse momentum dependent gluon density… Expand
