    UCT Physics colloquium 10 November, Jan Uphoff

    Next Wednesday, Jan Uphoff, University of Frankfurt, Germany, will give a presentation

    Heavy quarks and charmonium at RHIC and LHC within a partonic transport model
    Production and space-time evolution of heavy quarks and charmonium in central and non-central nucleus-nucleus collisions at RHIC and LHC are studied with the partonic transport model BAMPS. In a comprehensive study with different masses, K factors, and initial conditions, the production and evolution of heavy quarks in the QGP are examined within a fully dynamic, 3+1 dimensional BAMPS simulation of heavy-ion collisions at RHIC and LHC. In that framework we study energy loss and elliptic flow of heavy quarks induced by elastic scatterings with the medium. For these scatterings an improved Debye screening and the running coupling are employed. Cold nuclear matter effects are taken into account to estimate the initially produced J/psi which can dissociate in the QGP. In addition, we study the impact of J/psi regeneration from charm-anti-charm pairs within BAMPS.
