ManeParse: A Mathematica Interface to the PDFs

ManeParse is a modular Mathematica package that provides access to PDFs for hadronic calculations. It allows for parsing of .pds and LHAPDF6 files and estimates PDF errors for Hessian and MC releases.

  • Known issues:
  • Note: leading blank spaces in the info file can cause errors. Remove by hand. (This will be fixed shortly in an update.)
  • In certain instances, the alpha-S routines may break and return an infinite loop. This can be fixed by calling a pdfReset[] before loading the PDF sets.
