The Future synergy between Lattice QCD and Global Analyses of HEP data
Owing to the growing availability of computational resources as well as steady theoretical advances in lattice gauge theory and perturbative QCD analyses, the dual technologies of Lattice QCD and QCD Global Analyses have proceeded apace in recent years. In this context, it is increasingly suggested that the output of Lattice QCD calculations could serve as important input to Global Analyses of PDFs (and related quantities). In this talk I will discuss this exciting possibility, specifically demonstrating the important role Global Analyses will play in benchmarking improving Lattice QCD output. I will stress that, going forward, the relationship between the QCD Lattice and Global Analyses of high energy data will provide a powerful synergistic basis to improve our knowledge of the hadron tomography in the EIC era.
