This thesis presents a first measurement of the nuclear modification in Cu+Cu collisions at √sNN = 200 GeV for production of open heavy flavor at forward rapidity. The nuclear modification factor,RAA, for production of single muons from heavy flavor decay at〈y〉=±1.65 has been measured in three different Cu+Cu centrality classes (0-20%, 20-40%, 40-94%). We also present the first measurement of transverse momentum spectra of invariant yields of production of heavy flavor in symmetric heavy ion collisions at forward rapidity.
