|Abstract: ||I discuss our current understanding of parton distributions. I begin with the underlying theoretical framework, and
the way in which different data sets constrain different partons, highlighting recent developments. The methods of
examining the uncertainties on the distributions and those physical quantities dependent on them is analysed. Finally
I look at the evidence that additional theoretical corrections beyond NLO perturbative QCD may be necessary, what
type of corrections are indicated and the impact these may have on the uncertainties.|
