Nuclear parton distributions from the nCTEQ group

Abstract : We present the nCTEQ15 global analysis of nuclear parton distribution functions (nPDFs). The main addition to the previous nCTEQ PDFs is the introduction of PDF uncertainties based on the Hessian method. Another important improvement is the inclusion of pion production data from RHIC giving us a handle to constrain gluon PDF. In this presentation we briefly discuss the framework of our analysis and concentrate on the comparison of our results with those of other groups. Additionally we show a first estimate of the impact of the LHC pPb W=Z boson production data on the presented nCTEQ15 PDFs.
