Description

Results are presented of W and Z boson production in pp collisions at $\sqrt(s)=7$ TeV by the LHCb experiment. These studies are of particular interest due to LHCb's unique forward acceptance in pseudo-rapidity ($\eta$) of 2 $< \eta <$ 5. The results may either be interpreted as a test of Standard Model predictions, or may be used to constrain better parton density functions in this kinematical regime.
