LHC Lead Data and Nuclear PDFs


Kusina, A; Lyonnet, F; Clark, D B; Godat, E; Ježo, T; Kovařík, K; Olness, F I; Schienbein, I; Yu, J Y (2017). LHC Lead Data and Nuclear PDFs. Acta Physica Polonica B, 48(6):1035-1047.

Abstract

We compare predictions of nCTEQ15 nuclear parton distribution functions with proton–lead vector boson production data from the LHC. We select data sets that are most sensitive to nuclear PDFs and have potential to constrain them. We identify the kinematic regions and flavors where these data can bring new information and will have largest impact on the nuclear PDFs. Finally, we estimate the effect of including these data in a global analysis using a reweighting method.
