A comparison of new MC-adapted parton densities

Kasemets, T. and Sjöstrand, Torbjörn LU (2010) In European Physical Journal C. Particles and Fields 69(1-2). p.19-29
Abstract
A selection of the latest and most frequently used parton distribution functions (PDFs) is incorporated in Pythia8, including the Monte Carlo-adapted PDFs from the MSTW and CTEQ collaborations. This article examines the differences in PDFs as well as the effect they have on results of simulations and compare with data collected by the CDF experiment. Monte Carlo-adapted PDFs do a better job than leading- and next-to-leading order PDFs for many observables, but there is room for further improvements.
