Heavy flavour at RHIC

Abstract : Open and hidden charm and beauty are of outstanding importance for the study of the strongly interacting Quark-Gluon Plasma (sQGP) discovered at RHIC, for example for the understanding of the mass dependence of jet quenching and the measure of the density of the partonic medium, and for the measurement of its temperature through the quarkonia dissociation hierarchy. We review selected highlights on charm and beauty production at RHIC from p+p, d+Au and A+A collisions at sNN−−−−√=200 GeV, and compare them to model calculations. We focus on two particular issues, jet quenching and quarkonia.
