Center for Theoretical and Computational Physics
A new document reviews the status of the determination of parton distribution functions (PDFs) in the light of the precision requirements for the LHC in Run 2 and other future hadron colliders. A review of all currently available PDF sets is presented, and cross sections for a number of benchmark processes given. The document also illustrates how data from lower-energy experiments, such as at Jefferson Lab, can impact the determination of some LHC measurements, in particular those sensitive to PDFs at large parton moments fractions, x.
Facilities Management and Logistics
Effective April 4: Jefferson Lab Entrance at Lawrence Dr. Reopens; Lawrence Access to ARC Closes
During this time, all traffic will enter and exit Jefferson Lab via the Jefferson Avenue entrance at Lawrence to Kelvin Drive, or down Hogan Drive and then to Hofstadter Road or Rattley Road. Follow the posted detour signs. A map showing the excavation/work area and detour routes may be viewed here. The hash-marked area over Lawrence Drive indicates where the road will be closed for this phase.
All construction is scheduled to be completed by early July. This includes repaving Lawrence Drive, Pauli Drive and Rattley Road. If you have any questions about this work, contact Facilities Management and Logistics Manager, Rusty Sprouse, at x7589.
