This chapter concentrates on those areas of hard scattering in hadron-hadron interactions which are important for the determination of PDFs, or which complement lepton-induced DIS. Because of the very large momentum transfers involved, high ET jet production in pp or p-pbar interactions probe hadronic structure to very small distance scales. The chapter starts with the basic idea and essential assumptions. The crucial result is factorization, as this enables hard processes to be calculated using QCD matrix elements and PDFs determined from other processes. Much of the initial discussion of detail is focused on Drell–Yan lepton-pair production. This then leads naturally to W and Z production at p-pbar colliders. The core of the chapter concerns high ET jet production in hadron-hadron collisions - a pure QCD process. High ET isolated photon production is treated briefly and the chapter ends with a discussion of the importance of hadron-induced DIS for LHC physics.

Keywords:   PDFs, jet production, factorization, hadron-hadron interactions
