  • Bottomonium suppression at RHIC and LHC 

    Krouppa, Brandon; Rothkopf, Alexander Karl; Strickland, Michael (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019-02)
    The strong suppression of heavy quarkonia is a good indicator that one has generated a quark-gluon plasma (QGP) in an ultrarelativistic heavy ion collision. Recent advancements in first principles calculations of the heavy ...
