The MMHT view of the Proton

Particle Physics Theory seminar

The MMHT view of the Proton

Event details

The determination of the quark and gluon structure of the proton is a central component
of the precision phenomenology program at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC).
This internal structure is quantified by the Parton Distribution Functions (PDFs), which encode
the information related to the momentum distribution of quarks and gluons within the proton.
In this talk I will discuss recent developments from the MMHT perspective, focussing on PDF
projections, the treatment of theoretical uncertainties, and some of the opportunities and challenges
presented by the high level of precision being aimed for (and achieved) at the LHC.

About Particle Physics Theory seminars

The Particle Physics Theory seminar is a weekly series of talks reflecting the diverse interests of the group. Topics include analytic and numerical calculations based on the Standard Model of elementary particle physics, theories exploring new physics, as well as more formal developments in gauge theories and gravity..
