200. Measurement of forward direct photon production in p–A at LHC with ALICE – a probe for nuclear PDFs and saturation
Prof. Thomas Peitzmann (Utrecht University)

Direct photon production at forward rapidity is a promising probe for the gluon content of protons and nuclei at small x. In particular, the measurement of the nuclear modification factor for direct photons in p–A collisions at the LHC should provide a crucial test for gluon saturation. We discuss the unique role of such a photon measurement in the context of other measurements at the LHC and...

An update is presented on the possibilities for precision QCD studies at the LHeC and the FCC-he. Specifically, we will show recent results on the determination of nucleon PDFs with complete flavour decomposition and of the value of the strong coupling constant with per mille accuracy. The implications of such measurements on Higgs physics and on high mass BSM searches at the HL-LHC will be discussed.

We discuss the role of QCD and precision SM calculations for the physics program of a 100 TeV hadron collider. In particular, we discuss the role of parton distributions, jet and top quark production, electroweak and photon-induced corrections and global event properties at 100 TeV. This talk summarizes the Standard Model chapter of the FCC-hh Conceptual Design Report.

In this talk we will present a review on the possibilities for nuclear studies at the LHeC and the FCC-he. We will show an update on the possibilities for a precise determination of nuclear PDFs, and their complete unfolding, in a kinematic region never explored before in DIS. We will also discuss diffractive and exclusive observables and the possibilities which these offer for constraining...
