Speaker: A M Cooper-Sarkar (Oxford University)

Title:  Parton Distribution Functions and the LHC

Abstract:  The uncertainties on Parton Distribution Functions affect our knowledge of Standard Model and Beyond Standard Model cross-sections at the LHC. The present state of our knowledge and the prospects for extending our knowledge using LHC measurements themselves will be reviewed. Uncertainties on the conventional formalism for QCD evolution coming from the low-x kinematic region will also be assessed.
