Title: The Drell-Yan Process

The Drell-Yan process, proposed over 45 years ago by Sid Drell and Tung-Mow Yan to describe high-mass lepton-pair production in hadron-hadron collision, has played an important role in validating QCD as the correct theory for strong interaction. This process has also become a powerful tool for probing the partonic structures of hadrons. The Drell-Yan mechanism has led to the discovery of new particles, and will continue to be an important tool to search for new physics. In this study, we review some highlights and future prospects of the Drell-Yan process.
