Elliptic flow of inclusive electrons at √SNN = 2.76 TeV Pb-Pb collisions with the ALICE detector

One of the main components in the study of the elliptic flow of heavy flavour decay electrons is the elliptic flow of inclusive electrons. There are several methods that can be applied to get the inclusive electron elliptic flow at √SNN = 2.76 TeV with the ALICE detector. However these methods are effected by contamination in the electron sample. This thesis demonstrates a method to remove contamination in the electron sample at the yield level and compares with the results of other methods. We find that the elliptic flow determined with this method is comparable within the error bars to all studied methods. This means that effect of the contamination of the electron sample on the elliptic flow is not visible in the other methods.
