The determination of the structure of the proton is achieved through the comparison of experimental measurements and theoretical predictions.

We study the parton substructure of hadrons by casting it as a peculiar form of pattern recognition problem in which the pattern is a parton distribution function (PDFs), and we present the way this problem has been tackled and solved.

The main topics covered by this research project are:

  • A reliable determination of PDFs and its uncertainties
  • The phenomenological impact of PDFs on particle physics measurements/observables
  • Techniques for the determination and manipulation of PDFs.
