Measurements of heavy-flavor particles encode unique insights into the properties and interactions of QCD matter, enabling systematic investigations as a function of the resolution scale from vanishing to large momenta. This includes the heavy-flavor diffusion coefficient as a low-momentum measure of the medium's coupling strength, the effects of recombination of heavy quarks with thermal...

We study charm production in ultra-relativistic heavy-ion collisions by using the Parton-Hadron-String Dynamics (PHSD) transport approach. The initial charm quarks are produced by the Pythia event generator tuned to fit the transverse momentum spectrum and rapidity distribution of charm quarks from Fixed-Order Next-to-Leading Logarithm (FONLL) calculations taking into account the...

Heavy mesons are like jets one of the few probes which allow for studying the expansion of a plasma of quarks and gluons (QGP) created in ultra-relativistic heavy ion collisions. To do this we have to follow the heavy quarks from their production point through the QGP up to the final rescattering of heavy mesons with hadrons after the hadronization. In our approach the interaction of heavy...
