Abstract
We report on the measurements of production of various charmed hadrons in Au+Au collisions at $\sqrt{s_{\rm{NN}}}$ = 200 GeV (including $D^{0}(\overline{D^{0}})$ and $\Lambda_{c}^{\pm}$) obtained via topological reconstruction, utilizing the Heavy Flavor Tracker at STAR. Precise results on the $D^{0}$ yields from the 2014 data are reported for a wide transverse momentum range down to 0 GeV/$c$ in various centrality bins. With the high-statistics data collected in 2014 and 2016, and the usage of a supervised machine learning algorithm for signal-to-background separation, the first measurement of the centrality and transverse momentum dependences of $\Lambda_{c}^{\pm}$ production is shown. Finally, the total charm quark cross section extracted from these measurements in Au+Au collisions at $\sqrt{s_{\rm{NN}}}$ = 200 GeV is presented.
