Description

We present continuing work on the the MMHT PDFs. We discuss the changes in the PDFs and predictions due to variation in heavy quark masses. We present in detail the impact of the final combined HERA cross section data, and examine the fit quality. We also highlight plans for the future, in particular the potential impact of data sets not included in the current fit, and of new theoretical calculations.
