DESY Theory Seminar

All-oder calculations for PDFs determination

by Simone Marzani (U of Edinburgh)

Monday, January 15, 2018 from to (Europe/Berlin)
at DESY Hamburg ( seminar room 2, building 2A )
Description
I discuss the inclusion of the resummation in the context of the determination of parton distribution functions (PDFs). In particular, I present PDFs fits that are obtained including the resummation of threshold logarithms and high-energy logarithms, leading to a more reliable description of the large- and small-x regions of phase space. Specifically, I show how the PDF fit with small-x resummation provide strong evidence of BFKL dynamics in inclusive HERA data.
