We study quantitatively the formation and evolution of B_c bound states in a space-time domain of deconfined quarks and gluons (quark-gluon plasma, QGP). At the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) one expects for the first time that typical central collisions will result in multiple pairs of heavy (in this case charmed) quarks. This provides a new mechanism for the formation of heavy quarkonia which depends on the properties of the deconfined region. We find typical enhancements of about 500…

This paper discusses the elementary introduction to the physics of quark-gluon plasma. When two Heavy-ions are collided at RHIC and LHC, an extreme interplay between the quarks is seen when the
Particle Production in Matter at Extreme Conditions
We study particle production and its density evolution and equilibration in hot dense medium. One type of hot dense medium, which we study, is hadronic gas produced at quark gluon plasma
Observation of the B$_\mathrm{c}^+$ meson in PbPb and pp collisions at $\sqrt{s_{\mathrm{NN}}}$ = 5.02 TeV
The B+ c meson is observed for the first time in heavy ion collisions. Data from the CMS detector are used to measure the production of the B+ c meson in lead-lead (PbPb) and proton-proton (pp)
Melting hadrons, boiling quarks
Abstract.In the context of the Hagedorn temperature half-centenary I describe our understanding of the hot phases of hadronic matter both below and above the Hagedorn temperature. The first part of
Statistical hadronization phenomenology in heavy ion collisions at SPS and RHIC energies
This dissertation examines the phenomenology of statistical hadronization at ultrarelativistic energies. We start with an overview of current experimental and theoretical issues in Relativistic heavy
Possibility of bottom-catalyzed matter genesis near to primordial QGP hadronization
We study bottom flavor abundance in the early Universe near to a temperature $T_\mathrm{H}\simeq150\,\mathrm{MeV}$, the condition for hadronization of deconfined quark-gluon plasma (QGP). We show
Heavy flavor hadrons in statistical hadronization of strangeness-rich QGP
We study b and c quark hadronization from QGP. We obtain the yields of charm and bottom flavored hadrons within the statistical hadronization model. The important novel feature of this study is that

We summarize the theoretical description of charmonium and bottonium production in hadronic collisions and compare it. to the available data from hadron-nucleon interactions. With the parameters of
Charmonium production from secondary collisions at LHC energy
Abstract. We consider the charmonium production in the thermalized hadronic medium created in ultrarelativistic heavy ion collisions at LHC energy. The calculations for secondary $J/\psi$ and
