Description

Ultra-relativistic heavy ion collisions produce strongly interacting matter at high temperature and energy density. Under such extreme conditions a deconfined partonic phase called Quark-Gluon Plasma (QGP) is formed. The measurement of quarkonia (charmonia and bottomonia) is expected to provide essential information on the QGP properties. In pp collisions high precision data serve as crucial test for several competing models of quarkonium hadroproduction and provide the essential baseline for the measurements in AA collisions. Within the ALICE Muon Spectrometer, quarkonia production can be measured down to zero transverse momentum at forward rapidity (2.5
