Title: Electroweak probes of small and large systems with the ATLAS detector

Abstract

Measurements of isolated prompt photon and massive electroweak (W and Z) boson production in different collision systems are of great interest to understand the partonic structure of heavy nuclei, and serve as a constraint on the initial state in larger collision systems. Furthermore these channels are sensitive to a variety of effects such as the modification of the parton densities in nuclei in certain kinematic regions, and the energy loss of partons as they undergo multiple interactions in the nucleus before the hard parton-parton scattering.

The data are compared to the expectations based on Jetphox using the CT14 PDF with and without the EPPS16 nuclear PDF set. The yellow bands and verticalmore » bars correspond to total systematic and statistical uncertainties on the data, respectively. [3]« less
