Electroweak boson detection in the ALICE muon spectrometer: W and Z studies in hadron–hadron collisions at LHC

Abstract : The ALICE capabilities for W and Z detection at LHC are discussed. The contributions to single muon transverse momentum distribution are evaluated. The expected performance of the muon spectrometer for detecting W and Z bosons via their muonic decay is presented. Possible application for the study of in-medium effects in ultrarelativistic heavy ion collisions is discussed.
