ncteq is hosted by Hepforge, IPPP Durham

nCTEQ project is an extension of the CTEQ collaborative effort to determine parton distribution functions inside of a free proton. It generalizes the free-proton PDF framework to determine densities of partons in bound protons (hence nCTEQ which stands for nuclear CTEQ).

The effects of the nuclear environement on the parton densities can be shown as modified parton densities or nuclear correction factors (for example for lead as shown below)
