The integrated elliptic flow of charged particles produced in Pb+Pb collisions at √ s NN = 2.76 TeV has been measured with the ATLAS detector using data collected at the Large Hadron Collider. The anisotropy parameter, v 2 , was measured in the pseudorapidity range |η| ≤ 2.5 with the event-plane method. In order to include tracks with very low transverse momentum p T , thus reducing the uncertainty in v 2 integrated over p T , a 1 μb −1 data sample recorded without a magnetic field in the tracking detectors is used. The centrality dependence of the integrated v 2 is compared to other measurements obtained with higher p T thresholds. The integrated elliptic flow is weakly decreasing with |η|. The integrated v 2 transformed to the rest frame of one of the colliding nuclei is compared to the lower-energy RHIC data.
