Pseudorapidity dependence of the anisotropic flow with ALICE at the LHC

The anisotropic flow at forward rapidity provides information on the longitudinal expansion of the system produced in a heavy-ion collision. We report on the pseudo-rapidity dependence of the charged particle anisotropic flow in Pb-Pb collisions at 2.76 TeV. The measurement is done over a wide range of pseudo-rapidity, |\eta|<5.1 using the forward detectors of ALICE at the LHC. Results are obtained from two- and multi-particle correlation techniques with the latter being less sensitive to non-flow effects. The longitudinal scaling of the anisotropic flow at the LHC and the comparison with RHIC measurements and hydrodynamical model calculations at forward rapidity will be discussed.
