Introduction Successes of the phenomenological recombination model suggest the possibility that heavy and light quarkonia may be bound in quark-gluon plasma Two new surprising results from lattice gauge calculations Lattice spectral function analyses in quenched QCD show that J/ψ is stable up to 1.6Tc Lattice static Q-Q “potential” appears to be very strong between 1 and 2 Tc Shuryak, Zahed, Brown, Lee, and Rho suggested that even light quarkonia may be bound in quark- gluon plasma
We need to confirm these lattice gauge results to study effects of dynamical quarks on J/ψ stability to assess the strength of the Q-Q potential to examine the stability of heavy and light quarkonia in quark-gluon plasma to provide useful support to the recombination model and the thermal model of chemical yields
Lattice gauge spectral analyses in the quenched approximation show that the width of J/ψ remains narrow up to T ≤ 1.6 T C M. Asakawa, T. Hatsuda, and Y. Nakahara, Nucl. Phys. A715, 863 (03) S. Datta, F. Karsch, P. Petreczky, and I. Wetzorke, Phys. Rev. D69,094507(04) The drastic change of the spectral function between Tc suggests the occurrence of spontaneous dissociation at Tc x48x x x24
Questions: 1What does the potential model say about the J/ψ spontaneous dissociation temperature? 2What are the effects of dynamical quarks on the spontaneous dissociation temperature? 3 What is the strength of interaction between a static quark and antiquark? Can it be so strong as to bind light quark-antiquark pairs?
Kaczmarek et al. calculated the color-singlet F 1 and U 1 in the quenched approximation [hep-lat/ ] F 1 (r,T) was calculated in the Coulomb gauge U 1 is much deeper and broader than F 1 and can hold many more bound states
What is the Q-Q potential? 1. The free energy F 1 (r,T) as the Q-Q potential (Digal et.al `01,Wong `02) 2. The internal energy U 1 (r,T)=F 1 (r,T)+TS 1 (r,T) as the Q-Q potential (Kaczmarek et al.`02,Shuryak et al `04)
How to get the Schrödinger equation for a Q-Qbar pair? 1.Consider a static color-singlet Q and Qbar separated by a distance r in a gluon medium at temperature T in quenched QCD. Get F 1, U 1, and TS 1 = U 1 - F 1
2. Study a dynamical Q-Qbar in motion in the gluon medium. For a fixed temperature and volume, the equilibrium of the Q-Qbar and gluons is reached when the grand potential A is a minimum.
How to subtract U g from U 1 ?

Quenched QCD & Full QCD Quenched QCD is inadequate as it neglects the effects of dynamical quarks We need to study full QCD with dynamical quarks Kaczmarek et al. (PRD 71, ΄05) have obtained F 1 and U 1 in full QCD (with 2 flavors) Karsch et al. (PLB 478, 447) obtained the equation of state in full QCD (with 2 flavors) from which we get a(T)=3p/ε. We can use the potential model to study the stability of quarkonium in full QCD

Quarkonia in quark-gluon plasma The Q-Qbar potential extracted from lattice calculations can be used to examine the stability of light and heavy quarkonia. We can treat the quark mass as a variable and obtain the spontaneous dissociation temperature as a function of the reduced mass.
The quark drip line The quark drip line is the line in the (μ,T) space above which a Q-Qbar is unbound. It can be characterized by the nature of the Q-Qbar state: 1s drip line, 1p drip line,.. Given the Q-Qbar potential, the drip line can be determined by locating the spontaneous dissociation temperature as a function of the reduced mass.
Quark drip lines in quark-gluon plasma in quenched QCD
Stability of quarkonia in quark-gluon plasma in full QCD Dynamical quarks modifies the 1s drip line but only slightly the 1p drip line. potential
Use quark drip lines to study light quarkonia Because of the strong coupling, light quarks become quasiparticles and acquire masses The quasiparticle masses of quarks in quark-gluon plasma can be estimated by looking at the equation of state (Levai et al. `98, Szabo et al.`02, Iavanov et al.`05). They found that the quasi- particle masses of u, d, and s quarks are m q ~ GeV for Tc
Light quark quarkonia Szabo et al. JHEP 0306, 008 (`03) Results from Levai et al `98 and Ivanov et al `05 are similar. For light quarks with a mass of MeV, the quark drip lines show that quarkonia with light quarks can be stable up to 1.06Tc.
Quark quasiparticle mass from lattice gauge calculations Lattice gauge theory calculations give the quasiparticle mass of light quark (Petreczky et al. `02) With such a heavy quark mass, quarkonia with (u,d,s) quarks can be bound up to 1.31 Tc. In either case, the region of possible quarkonia with light quarks is limited to temperatures close to Tc.
The potential model is consistent with the lattice gauge spectral function analysis, if the Q-Qbar potential is a linear combination of F 1 and U 1,with coefficients that depend on the equation of state. The effects of the dynamical quarks modify only slightly the stability of J/ψ. J/ψ dissociates spontaneously at about 1.62 Tc in quenched QCD and at 1.42 Tc in 2-flavor QCD. The interaction between a static quark and antiquark is such that the quark drip lines limit possible quarkonium states with light quarks to temperatures close to Tc. Conclusions
