Description

We discuss updates to the MMHT2014 and 2016 PDFs ahead of a new release of PDF sets. These updates include the addition of further data, largely from the LHC, as well as a consequent extension of our PDF parametrisation. We also summarise the results of our inclusion of QED effects in parton distributions.
