We report on EPPS16 - the first analysis of NLO nuclear PDFs where LHC p-Pb data (Z, W, dijets) have been directly used as a constraint. In comparison to our previous fit EPS09, also data from neutrino-nucleus deeply-inelastic scattering and pion-nucleus Drell-Yan process are now included. Much of the theory framework has also been updated from EPS09, including a consistent treatment of heavy quarks in deeply-inelastic scattering. However, the most notable change is that we no longer assume flavour-blind nuclear modifications for valence and sea quarks. This significantly reduces the theoretical bias. All the analysed data are well reproduced and the analysis thereby supports the validity of collinear factorization in high-energy collisions involving heavy nuclei. However, flavour by flavour, the uncertainties are still rather large.

Examination of the influence of transfer channels on the barrier height distribution: Scattering of 20Ne on 58Ni, 60Ni, and 61Ni at near-barrier energies Trzcińska, A.; Piasecki, E.; Amar, A.; Czarnacki, W.; Keeley, N.; Kisieliński, M.; Kliczewski, S.; Kowalczyk, M.; Lommel, B.; Mutterer, M.; Siudak, R.; Stolarz, A.; Strojek, I.; Tyurin, Grigory; Trzaska, Wladyslaw (American Physical Society, 2016)Background: It was suggested that the shape of the barrier height distribution can be determined not only by strong reaction channels (collective excitations) but also by weak channels such as transfers and/or ...
