ICHEP / Probing Parton Distribution Functions at LHCb

With detector instrumented in the forward region, the collected Z boson events in the LHCb acceptance can be used to probe the proton structure in a phase space region not accessible by other LHC experiments. In this talk, the latest Z boson production measurements will be presented, as well as the measurement of Z+ c jet events for probing intrinsic charm. The potential contributions of the LHCb data to the global Parton Distribution Functions fits will be demonstrated via these analyses, including the sea quark in the larger x region, the transverse momentum dependent Parton Distribution Functions, and the intrinsic charm in the proton.
