Description

I will discuss the inclusion in PDF fits of two resummations in QCD: threshold (large x) and high-energy (small x). I will present published results for threshold resummation on a global NNPDF, and implication for phenomenology (as well as future plans). I will then show preliminary results on the effect of resumming small-x logarithms in PDF fits, again in the context of the NNPDF methodology.
