Description

Charmonium production is among the promising signatures for quark-gluon plasma
formation in relativistic heavy-ion collisions. Here we investigate hot-medium effects on the suppression of the $J/\Psi$ yields in Pb$+$Pb and p$+$Pb at $\sqrt{s_{NN}} = 5.02$ TeV in a model that encompasses screening of the real part of the potential, damping of the $c\bar{c}$ binding through the imaginary part, and gluon-induced dissociation.
Recombination plays an essential role for Pb$+$Pb, but is less important for p$+$Pb. We investigate the relative importance of cold nuclear matter and hot medium effects in p$+$Pb. Model results for both systems are compared to recent centrality, rapidity and transverse momentum dependent data from ALICE and CMS.
