Electron-ion physics with the LHeC

Helenius, Ilkka LU ; Paukkunen, Hannu and Armesto, Néstor (2015) In Proceedings of Science
Abstract

The Large Hadron Electron Collider (LHeC) project is the proposal to use the existing LHC proton/ion beams and construct a new electron beam line to perform high-energy electron-proton/ion collisions. In this talk, we consider some of the physics topics that could be studied in the electronion mode. In particular, we estimate how much the current nuclear parton distribution fits could be improved with the deeply inelastic scattering measurements at the LHeC by including pseudodata into a global analysis. In addition, we discuss briefly other topics that would help to better understand some aspects of heavy-ion collisions, namely small-x physics and hadron production with a nuclear target.
