We present GKG18-DPDFs, a next-to-leading order (NLO) QCD analysis of diffractive parton distribution functions (diffractive PDFs) and their uncertainties. This is the first global set of diffractive PDFs determined within the xFitter framework. This analysis is motivated by all available and most up-to-date data on inclusive diffractive deep inelastic scattering (diffractive DIS). Heavy quark contributions are considered within the framework of the Thorne–Roberts (TR) general mass variable flavor number scheme (GM-VFNS). We form a mutually consistent set of diffractive PDFs due to the inclusion of high-precision data from H1/ZEUS combined inclusive diffractive cross sections measurements. We study the impact of the H1/ZEUS combined data by producing a variety of determinations based on reduced data sets. We find that these data sets have a significant impact on the diffractive PDFs with some substantial reductions in uncertainties. The predictions based on the extracted diffractive PDFs are compared to the analyzed diffractive DIS data and with other determinations of the diffractive PDFs. ...

Uncertainties on the determination of the strong coupling αs from the energy evolution of jet fragmentation functions at low z d'Enterria, David; Perez-Ramos, Redamy (Elsevier BV, 2016)The QCD coupling αs is determined at NLO*+NMLLA accuracy from the comparison of experimental jet data to theoretical predictions of the energy-evolution of the parton-to-hadron fragmentation function moments (multiplicity, peak, ...
Lappi, Tuomas; Mäntysaari, Heikki; Penttala, Jani (American Physical Society (APS), 2020)We compute a light front wave function for heavy vector mesons based on long-distance matrix elements constrained by decay width analyses in the nonrelativistic QCD framework.

Applicability of pion–nucleus Drell–Yan data in global analysis of nuclear parton distribution functions Paakkinen, Petja; Eskola, Kari; Paukkunen, Hannu (Elsevier B.V., 2017)Despite the success of modern nuclear parton distribution functions (nPDFs) in describing nuclear hard-process data, they still suffer from large uncertainties. One of the poorly constrained features is the possible asymmetry ...
Li, Meijian; Lappi, Tuomas; Zhao, Xingbo (American Physical Society (APS), 2021)We develop a numerical method to nonperturbatively study scattering and gluon emission of a quark from a colored target using a light-front Hamiltonian approach. The target is described as a classical color field, as in ...
