The suppression of Y-mesons in the hot quark-gluon plasma (QGP) versus reduced feed-
down is investigated in heavy-ion collisions at energies reached at the Large Hadron Collider
(LHC). Our model encompasses screening, collisional damping and gluodissociation in the
QGP. It provides p_T- and centrality-dependent results for the six states involved.
Most of the Y(1S)-suppression is found to be due to reduced feed-down, whereas the
Y(2S)-suppression is mainly caused by hot-medium effects in the collectively expanding QGP.
The previously predicted Y(1S)-suppression in PbPb collisions at sqrt(s_NN) = 5.02 TeV agrees
with recent CMS data, whereas the data for Y(2S) are more strongly suppressed compared to
calculated results in peripheral collisions. Predictions for fixed-target experiments with a
2.76 TeV Pb-beam are shown.

Metadata are provided both in "article" format (very similar to INSPIRE) as this helps creating
very compact bibliographies which can be beneficial to authors and

which is more detailed and complete.
