Abstract
This note provides an interim summary of the current recommendations of thePDF4LHC working group for the use of parton distribution functions (PDFs)and of PDF uncertainties at the LHC, for cross section and cross section uncer-tainty calculations. It also contains a succinct user guideto the computation ofPDFs, uncertainties and correlations using available PDF sets.A companion note (the PDF4LHC Working Group Interim Report)summa-rizes predictions for benchmark cross sections at the LHC atNLO using mod-ern PDFs currently available from 6 PDF fitting groups
