Charged hadron fragmentation functions from collider data: NNPDF Collaboration.

We present NNFF1.1h, a new determination of unidentified charged-hadron fragmentation functions (FFs) and their uncertainties. Experimental measurements of transverse-momentum distributions for charged-hadron production in proton-(anti)proton collisions at the Tevatron and at the LHC are used to constrain a set of FFs originally determined from electron-positron annihilation data. Our analysis is performed at next-to-leading order in perturbative quantum chromodynamics. We find that the hadron-collider data is consistent with the electron-positron data and that it significantly constrains the gluon FF. We verify the reliability of our results upon our choice of the kinematic cut in the hadron transverse momentum applied to the hadron-collider data and their consistency with NNFF1.0, our previous determination of the FFs of charged pions, kaons, and protons/antiprotons.


Towards small-x resummed parton distribution functions

Proceedings of Science 2017-April (2017)

© 2017 Copyright owned by the author(s) under the terms of the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivatives 4.0 International License (CC BY-NC-ND 4.0). We present preliminary results for fits of parton distribution functions (PDFs) which include the resummation of small-x logarithms at NLLx accuracy, performed in the NNPDF framework. We observe an improvement in the description of DIS data at small values of Bjorken x when resummation effects are included. The improvement is more marked when comparing NNLO+NLLx fits to NNLO ones, and is particularly noticeable for small-x and small-Q 2 HERA inclusive structure functions. The main effect of the resummation is an enhancement of the gluon and singlet PDFs at small-x, which persists at high scales.


Maximal Entanglement in High Energy Physics

<jats:p>We analyze how maximal entanglement is generated at the fundamental level in QED by studying correlations between helicity states in tree-level scattering processes at high energy. We demonstrate that two mechanisms for the generation of maximal entanglement are at work: <jats:italic>i)</jats:italic><jats:inline-formula><jats:alternatives><jats:tex-math>s</jats:tex-math><mml:math xmlns:mml="http://www.w3.org/1998/Math/MathML" display="inline"><mml:mi>s</mml:mi></mml:math></jats:alternatives></jats:inline-formula>-channel processes where the virtual photon carries equal overlaps of the helicities of the final state particles, and <jats:italic>ii)</jats:italic> the indistinguishable superposition between <jats:inline-formula><jats:alternatives><jats:tex-math>t</jats:tex-math><mml:math xmlns:mml="http://www.w3.org/1998/Math/MathML" display="inline"><mml:mi>t</mml:mi></mml:math></jats:alternatives></jats:inline-formula>- and <jats:inline-formula><jats:alternatives><jats:tex-math>u</jats:tex-math><mml:math xmlns:mml="http://www.w3.org/1998/Math/MathML" display="inline"><mml:mi>u</mml:mi></mml:math></jats:alternatives></jats:inline-formula>-channels. We then study whether <jats:italic>requiring</jats:italic> maximal entanglement constrains the coupling structure of QED and the weak interactions. In the case of photon-electron interactions unconstrained by gauge symmetry, we show how this requirement allows to reproduce QED. For <jats:inline-formula><jats:alternatives><jats:tex-math>Z</jats:tex-math><mml:math xmlns:mml="http://www.w3.org/1998/Math/MathML" display="inline"><mml:mi>Z</mml:mi></mml:math></jats:alternatives></jats:inline-formula>-mediated weak scattering, the maximal entanglement principle leads to non-trivial predictions for the value of the weak mixing angle <jats:inline-formula><jats:alternatives><jats:tex-math>\theta_W</jats:tex-math><mml:math xmlns:mml="http://www.w3.org/1998/Math/MathML" display="inline"><mml:msub><mml:mi>θ</mml:mi><mml:mi>W</mml:mi></mml:msub></mml:math></jats:alternatives></jats:inline-formula>.

Fitting EMC structure functions with intrinsic charm

Proceedings of Science 11-15-April-2016 (2016)

L Rottoli

A detailed study of the impact of the data collected by the European Muon Collaboration (EMC) on the parton distribution function (PDF) of the charm quark is presented. The analysis is performed in the NNPDF framework, and the charm PDF is freely parametrized on equal footing as light quark and gluon distributions. We find that variations in the treatment of EMC data do not modify the charm PDF and do not affect our previous conclusion on the presence of an intrinsic component in the charm PDF.
