Bottomonia physics at RHIC and LHC
September 19, 2019
The physics of Y-mesons in the hot quark-gluon plasma (QGP) is investigated in heavy-ion collisions at energies reached at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) and the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). Our model for Y suppression 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 at LHC energies 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. At RHIC energies, comparisons with 200 GeV AuAu data from STAR are shown. In the asymmetric pPb system at sqrt(s_NN) = 8.16 TeV, both cold-matter and and hot-medium effects contribute substantially. Model comparisons with LHCb, and preliminary ALICE data are discussed.

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
readers, and in "proceeding" format
which is more detailed and complete.
