Abstract/Description: We demonstrate that theoretical predictions using current resummation techniques for the lepton pair production (LPP) rapidity and x(F) distributions can be inconsistent with data in high rapidity and x(F) kinematic regions by observing their effect in global fits of parton distribution functions (PDFs). We present an enhanced resummation technique for the LPP rapidity and x(F) distributions that agrees with LPP data. The enhanced resummation method is used in conjunction with threshold resummation in deep inelastic scattering to perform two global fits of PDFs using the minimal and Borel prescriptions. The results are analyzed to determine the effect of threshold resummation on global fits of PDFs.
