The suppression of heavy quarkonium states such as J/psi, psi(2S) and Upsilon(nS) in heavy-ion collisions, with respect to proton-proton collisions, plays an important role in studying the hot and dense medium formed in the larger collision systems. A full assessment of this suppression requires understanding of nuclear effects which may affect the production of quarkonium states even in the...

Suppression of quarkonia in heavy-ion collisions due to the Debye screening of the potential between the heavy quarks was one of the first hypothesized signatures of the Quark Gluon Plasma (QGP). However, other effects besides Debye screening, such as the statistical recombination of heavy quark anti-quark pairs, or co-mover absorption, can also affect quarkonium production in heavy-ion...
