Description

The study of proton-nucleus collision at LHC energies represents an important step in Quark-Gluon Plasma related studies, allowing a quantitative evaluation of cold nuclear matter effects on various observables. The ALICE Collaboration is carrying out a comprehensive study on charmonium production in p-Pb collisions at $\sqrt{s_{\rm NN}} = 5.02$ TeV in the dimuon decay channel. The analysis of the centrality dependence of the J/$\psi$ production is now in progress. Various centrality-related observables are being investigated, and their use in the charmonium analysis is being evaluated. In this poster, we will discuss the present status of the study of the centrality dependence of the J/$\psi$ production in p-Pb collisions, including an estimate of the $\langle p_{\rm} \rangle$ evolution with centrality.
