Task 2.3 - Computation of matrix elements for in medium quarkonium evolution


    Coordinator: Antonio Vairo



    General description:


    This subtask deals with quarkonium propagation and suppression in the medium formed in heavy-ion collisions. The quarkonium low-energy out of equilibrium dynamics is governed by in-medium correlators, which we aim to compute in lattice QCD.



    Progress [1-18 months]:


    The heavy quark diffusion coefficient has been computed in quenched QCD over a wide range of temperatures (from 1.1 to 10000 times the critical temperature) in [Br20h]. It has been found that within errors the lattice results are remarkably compatible with the next-to-leading order perturbative result.


    Temperature dependence of the heavy quark momentum diffusion coefficient k from [Br20h] ("Our result") compared to the NLO result. The shaded bands include the errors coming from varying the scale by a factor 2. The blue band also includes the statistical error.
