Dependence of LHC observables on parton distribution functions

On this webpage, we present typical LHC cross sections computed using computed with 2015 PDF4LHC [hep-ph/1510.03865v1], ABM 2012, CT14, HERA2.0, MMTH14 and NNPDF3.0 parton distributions. Hard scattering cross sections are calculated at (N)LO using MCFM or APPLgrid interface to aMCFast.
