 The $\pT$-differential production yields of muons (left panel) and electrons (right panel) from heavy-flavour hadron decays at forward and midrapidity, respectively, in Xe--Xe collisions at $\sqrt{s_{\rm NN}}$ = 5.44 TeV for various centrality intervals. Statistical uncertainties (vertical bars) and systematic uncertainties (open boxes) are shown.
