This is the webpage of ``PDF4BSM: Parton Distributions in the Higgs Boson Era'', a research project funded by an Starting Grant from the European Research Council. The project was hosted at the University of Oxford in the period between June 2014 and September 2016, while since October 2016 the host institution is the VU Amsterdam, with Oxford as partner organisation.
The main goal of this project is to produce improved set of Parton Distribution Functions (PDFs), an essential ingredient of the phenomenology of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). For an introduction to Parton Distributions, see this Scholarpedia article, for a more advanced recent review please check this reference. More details about some of the research topics can be found here.
The team of the PDF4BSM project can be found here.
Ongoing and past events organized with the support of PDF4BSM are presented here.
The most important publications that have been produced in the framework in this project are summarized in the results section.
One of the main activities of PDF4BSM is to establish a strong visitor program in Oxford to develop synergies between researchers of different LHC communities with a common interest in parton distribution functions. A list of Oxford visitors supported by PDF4BSM can be found here.
