Abstract A FORTRAN package containing parametrizations of parton distribution functions (PDFs) in the proton is described. It allows an easy access to PDFs provided by several recent parametrizations and to some parameters characterizing particular parametrization. Some comments about the use of various parametrizations are also included. Title of program: PAKPDF 1.1 Catalogue Id: ACGU_v1_0 Nature of problem In the framework of the QCD Improved Parton Model parton distribution functions play a basic role enabling to relate theoretically calculated hardpartonic cross section with experimentally measured one. Their specific features determine the behaviour of hadronic cross sections at high energies. The accurate knowlegde of PDFS is important especially in precision studies of the Standard Model, in estimating possible sources of background in search for New Physics and in predictions for forthcoming ...
