Using the gauge-gravity duality we have obtained the potential between a heavy quark and an antiquark pair, which is moving perpendicular to the direction of orientation, in a strongly-coupled supersymmetric hot plasma. For the purpose we work on a metric in the gravity side, {\em viz.} OKS-BH geometry, whose dual in the gauge theory side runs with the energy and hence proves to be a better background for thermal QCD. The potential obtained has confining term both in vacuum and in medium, in…

Heavy quark potential in a static and strong homogeneous magnetic field
We have investigated the properties of quarkonia in a thermal QCD medium in the background of strong magnetic field. For that purpose, we employ the Schwinger proper-time quark propagator in the
Dissociation of heavy quarkonia in a weak magnetic field
We examined the effects of the weak magnetic field on the properties of heavy quarkonia immersed in a thermal medium of quarks and gluons and studied how the magnetic field affects the quasifree
Bottomonia suppression in heavy-ion collisions from anti–de Sitter space/conformal field theory
We compute for the first time the suppression of bottomonia in a strongly coupled quark-gluon plasma (QGP) and compare the results to those from a weakly coupled QGP. Using imaginary time techniques
Heavy quarkonia in a potential model: binding energy, decay width, and survival probability
Recently a lot of progress has been made in deriving the heavy quark potential within a QCD medium. In this article we have considered heavy quarkonium in a hot quark gluon plasma phase. The
Heavy quark complex potential in a strongly magnetized hot QGP medium
We study the effect of strong constant magnetic field, generated in relativistic heavy ion collisions, on the heavy quark complex potential. We work in the strong magnetic field limit with lowest
Heavy quarkonia in a bulk viscous medium
We study the properties of heavy quarkonia in a quark gluon plasma in the presence of bulk viscous effects. Within the hard thermal loop approximation at one-loop, the dielectric permittivity of a
Spectral functions of heavy quarkonia in a bulk-viscous quark gluon plasma
We study the properties of quarkonia inside a bulk-viscous quark gluon plasma. The non-equilibrium nature of the medium is encoded in the deformed distribution functions of thermal quarks and gluons,
Renormalization group flow, stability, and bulk viscosity in a large N thermal QCD model
The ultraviolet completion of a large N QCD model requires introducing new degrees of freedom at certain scale so that the UV behavior may become asymptotically conformal with no Landau poles and no
