Omnipresent biasTheoretical bias: Bias introduced by researches in the form of theprecise structure of the model they use, invariably constrains theform of the solutionsSystematical bias: Bias introduced by algorithms, such asoptimization algorithms, which may favor some results in wayswhich are not justified by their objective functions, but ratherdepend on the internal operation of the algorithm
PDFs always present in hadronic processes involving highvirtualities
