Large-x PDFs and the Drell-Yan process

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

Dimuon production has been studied in a series of fixed-target experiments at Fermilab during the last two decades. Highlights from these experiments, together with recent results from the Fermilab E866 experiment, are presented. Future prospects for studying the parton distributions in the nucleons and nuclei using dimuon production are also discussed.
