    Abstract

    We study the temperature dependence of bottomonium for temperatures in the range 0.4Tc < T < 2.1Tc, using non-relativistic dynamics for the bottom quark and full relativistic lattice QCD simulations for Nf = 2 light flavors. We consider the behaviour of the correlators in Euclidean space, we analyze the associated spectral functions and we study the dependence on the momentum. Our results are amenable to a successful comparison with effective field theories. They help build a coherent picture of the behaviour of bottomonium in the plasma, consistent which the current LHC results.
