Description

Measurements are presented of electroweak boson production in the forward region using data from pp collisions. The evolution of the W and Z boson cross-sections with centre-of-mass energy and differential distributions are also studied. Measurements of the forward backward charge asymmetry of Z at LHC experiments are presented. These results provide precision tests on the electroweak theory, high order predictions and the information can be used to constraint parton distribution functions.
