Description

I will present a state-of-the-art prediction for the prompt atmospheric neutrino flux in the framework of perturbative QCD. The calculation was performed using a gluon PDF constrained at small-x by the inclusion of charm production measurements from the LHCb experiment at 7 TeV, and recently validated with the corresponding 13 TeV data [arXiv:1511.06346, arXiv:1506.08025]
