Abstract

We study the temperature dependence of bottomonium for temperatures in the range 0:4Tc <T <2:1Tc, using nonrelativistic dynamics for the bottom quark and full relativistic lattice QCD simulations for Nf = 2 light flavors on a highly anisotropic lattice. We find that the У is insensitive to the temperature in this range, while the Xb propagators show a crossover from the exponential decay characterizing the hadronic phase to a power-law behavior consistent with nearly free dynamics at T ≈ 2Tc.
