Abstract
A new QCD analysis of deep inelastic scattering (DIS) data is presented. All available neutrino and antineutrino cross sections are reanalyzed and included in the fit, along with charged-lepton DIS and Drell-Yan data. A massive factorization scheme is used to describe the charm component of the structure functions. Next-to-leading-order parton distribution functions are provided. In particular, the strange-sea density is determined with a higher accuracy with respect to other global fits.
