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.
