3 Global analysis of PDFs = DGLAP-evolved PDFs + constraints from hard pQCD process data + constraints from sum rules (momentum, charge, baryon#) Procedure : iterate until best fit, best set of initial parameters {a i } found { f i (x,{a j }) } at Q 0, model inpendent DGLAP Comparison with data at various x & Q noVary {a j } { f i (x) } at Q>Q 0 Min(chi 2 ) ? Impose sum rules

4 Free proton PDFs: CTEQ, MRST, GRV,… Nuclear PDFs: 1.EKS98 (Eskola, Kolhinen, Ruuskanen, Salgado) [ hep-ph/9802350,hep-ph/9807297] - 1st global analysis for nPDFs - very good fits to nuclear DIS & DY data obtained with sum rules imposed – it works! 2. HKN, HKM (Hirai, Kumano, Nagai, Miyama) [hep-ph/0103208,hep-ph/0404093] - automated chi 2 minimization - uncertainty estimates 3. nDS (de Florian, Sassot) [hep-ph/0311227] - first NLO global analysis for nPDFs Global analyses for…

5 Goals of our reanalysis, hep-ph/0703104 Improve the old EKS98 global analysis by - Automating chi2 minimization (in EKS98 fits done by eye only) - Improve chi2 over EKS98 (difficult...)? - Obtain uncertainty estimates on the EKS98-type nuclear modifications of PDFs Study whether DIS&DY data support stronger gluon shadowing -- BRAHMS data would seem to suggest stronger shadowing than in EKS98, HKN, nDS

6 Define the PDFs of bound protons w.r.t. the known free proton PDFs: PDFs of the bound neutrons from isospin symmetry As in EKS98, parametrize initial distributions at Q 0 =1.3 GeV in terms of three different initial modifications R i (x,Q 0 ) for valence, sea & gluons piecewise construction; functional forms simpler than in EKS98 Sum rules imposed baryon # conservation constrain valence momentum conservation constrain gluons The framework = EKS98

8 No constraints for large-x sea&gluons modifications fix their modifications to that of valence Lots of manual labour to figure out which parameters are important! Minimize chi2 for 16 free fit parameters

13 Constraints for gluons from the first 3 panels of F2(Sn)/F2(C): Small-x Q 2 -dependence nicely reproduced if R G A (x,Q 0 ) ~1 at x~0.03-0.04. If gluon shadowing at x ~ 0.01 is clearly stronger than sea quark shadowing, then log Q-slope of F2(Sn)/F2(C) becomes small or even negative… Based on the chi 2 s obtained in global analysis, we do not find support for strong gluon shadowing from DIS&DY data. However… stronger gluon shadowing does not lead to much worse overall chi2 – the gluon constraint from current DIS & DY data is not very stringent…

16
16 Estimated uncertainties on initial modifications (Hessian method, from Minuit): analyzed small-x and large-x errors separately EKS98 works very well new parametrization not needed! gluon and sea quark shadowings function-form dependent, the uncertainties shown are lower limits stronger gluon shadowing at x<0.03 ?? ( since still Chi 2 /N<1)

17 Support for stronger gluon shadowing from BRAHMS d+Au data? Next steps for us - include these data in global analysis - NLO analysis
