This chapter outlines the extensions to the formalism to allow for W and Z exchange at high Q2 in NC and CC processes, and to allow for polarization of the electron or positron beams. The extensions for the unpolarized case are treated first, paying particular attention to the relationships of the structure functions to the PDFs via the electroweak couplings. High-Q2 HERA data are then discussed and the importance of their contribution to determining PDFs outlined. The next section extends the formalism to NC and CC processes with polarized electrons or positrons. This is followed by an outline of contribution of HERA data to the precision measurement of electroweak parameters. An appendix gives more detail on the formalism for high-Q2 NC DIS.

Keywords:   polarized electrons, PDFs, electroweak parameters, HERA data
