Description

We report on studies of W and Z boson production in the LHCb experiment. Strategies for triggering, boson selection and background reduction are described. Prospects for differential cross-section measurement are given, with estimates of statistical and systematic errors. The sensitivity of the differential cross sections to parton density functions is discussed.
