Measurement of Z-boson production in p-Pb collisions at $\sqrt{s_{\mathrm{NN}}}=8.16$ TeV and Pb-Pb collisions at $\sqrt{s_{\mathrm{NN}}}=5.02$ TeV is reported. It is performed in the dimuon decay channel, through the detection of muons with pseudorapidity $-4<\eta_{\mu}<-2.5$ and transverse momentum $p_{\rm T}^{\mu}>20$ GeV/$c$ in the laboratory frame. The invariant yield and nuclear modification factor are measured for opposite-sign dimuons with invariant mass $60<m^{\mu\mu}<120$ GeV$c^2$ and… Expand

EPPS16: nuclear parton distributions with LHC data
A global analysis of collinearly factorized nuclear parton distribution functions (PDFs) including, for the first time, data constraints from LHC proton–lead collisions is introduced including a new set of next-to-leading order nuclear PDFs called EPPS16. Expand

A bstractWe determine the spatial (impact parameter) dependence of nuclear parton distribution functions (nPDFs) using the A-dependence of the spatially independent (averaged) global fits EPS09 andExpand
Constraints for the nuclear parton distributions from Z and W± production at the LHC
The LHC is foreseen to finally bring also the nuclear collisions to the TeV scale thereby providing new possibilities for physics studies, in particular related to the electro-weak sector of theExpand
Parton distributions and the LHC: W and Z production
Abstract.W and Z bosons will be produced copiously at the LHC proton-proton collider. We study the parton distribution dependence of the total production cross sections and rapidity distributions,Expand
