Description

We report on studies of low invariant mass Drell-Yan production in the LHCb experiment. Measurements of the Drell-Yan differential cross- section can probe values of x down to 10^-5. Strategies for triggering, selection, and background reduction are discussed. Estimated statistical and systematic errors are given as a function of Drell-Yan invariant mass. The sensitivity to uncertainties in parton density functions is discussed.
