Description

Vacuum radiation of high-pT heavy quarks ceases at a short time scale, as is confirmed by LEP measurements of the fragmentation functions of heavy flavors. Production of a heavy flavored hadron is considerably delayed in a dense medium , what causes a strong suppression of the heavy quark yield in AA collisions in good accord with data.
