Heavy flavour production in the semi-muonic channel at forward rapidity in p-p collisions at sqrt(s)= 7 TeV and Pb-Pb collisions at sqrt{s_NN) = 2.76 TeV with ALICE

Abstract : Heavy quark production is measured in the single-muon decay channel with the ALICE muon spectrometer. We present the differential production cross section of muons from heavy flavour decay at forward rapidity (2.5 < y < 4) in pp collisions at √s = 7 TeV and comparisons to perturbative QCD predictions. The analysis of the inclusive muon production in Pb-Pb collisions at √sNN = 2.76 TeV is described as well, and special attention is given to preliminary results on the nuclear modification factor
