ICHEP / LHCb measurements of Quarkonia Production in Ultraperipheral PbPb collisions and Z production in $p$Pb collisions

Measurements of quarkonia production in peripheral and ultra-peripheral heavy-ion collisions are sensitive to photon-photon and photon-nucleus interactions, the partonic structure of nuclei, and to the mechanisms of vector-meson production. LHCb has studied both coherent and incoherent production of $J/\psi$ mesons in peripheral and ultra-peripheral collisions using PbPb data at forward rapidity with the highest precision currently accessible. In addition, measurements of $Z$ production in $p$Pb collisions provide new constraints on the partonic structure of nucleons bound inside nuclei. Here we will present these measurements of quarkonia and Z production, along with comparisons with the latest theoretical models.
