Type: invited talk Session: Nuclear PDFs
While tremendous effort has been made to determine the parton distribution functions (PDFs) of a free proton, less is known about their modification in nuclei. Such information is vital for our understanding of parton dynamics, since it can provide valuable insight into nuclear effects that are not well understood. In this talk, I present nNNPDF1.0, the first analysis of nuclear PDFs from the NNPD ... More

Type: invited talk Session: Nuclear PDFs
In addition to its role in high-energy astrophysics, the IceCube Neutrino Observatory is a laboratory to study neutrino-nucleon deep inelastic scattering at multi-TeV energies far beyond the reach of accelerators. A recent analysis of contained neutrino interactions in IceCube will be presented where the inelasticity of charged-current $\nu_{\mu}$ interactions (the fraction of neutrino energy tra ... More

Type: invited talk Session: Nuclear PDFs
One of the most interesting aspects of neutrino-nucleus DIS measurements is the apparent absence of antishadowing of the nuclear parton distributions, in direct contradiction to electron-nucleus and muon-nucleus measurements. This has several implications: (1) anti-shadowing may be flavor specific. This can be tested in semi-inclusive deep inelastic lepton scattering. (2) antishadowing cann ... More

Type: invited talk Session: Nuclear PDFs
Recent nuclear scattering data from the LHC contain a wealth of information providing important constraints on our knowledge of both nuclear and proton parton distribution functions (PDFs). In this talk, I present the nCTEQ nPDFs (which are now based upon a substantially upgraded code, nCTEQ++) to illustrate this point with a special focus on the ability of $W^\pm/Z$ boson production to help dise ...
