Tutorials & Drivers: The NNPDF Mathematica Interface

A package for using NNPDF Sets through the Mathematica software is provided. This package reads the NNPDF grids and allows the user to access PDF ensembles for evaluating PDF central values and errors, plotting PDFs istantaneously and computing physical observables.

The user should have separately downloaded the relevant NNPDF grids.

The user will find in the package some sample notebooks containing a demonstration of the interface as well as a variety of examples, for both unpolarized and polarized PDF sets.

Should you use the NNPDF Mathematica interface, please cite the following reference
