Quarkonium Production in Heavy Ion Collisions: From Open Quantum System to Transport Equation

Journal Article

Using the open quantum system formalism and effective field theory of QCD, we derive the Boltzmann transport equation of quarkonium inside the quark-gluon plasma. Our derivation illuminates that the success of transport equations in quarkonium phenomenology is closely related to the separation of scales in the problem.
