Charmonium suppression in p-A collisions at RHIC
Francois Arleo1, Pol-Bernard Gossiaux1, Jörg Aichelin1

We discuss charmonium production in proton-nucleus collisions at RHIC energies under the assumption of xF and x2 scaling. We find that all the ambiguities due to energy loss are gone at this energy and therefore data will reveal the scaling law, if any. These p-A data will also be crucial to interpret nucleus-nucleus data with respect to a possible formation of a quark gluon plasma because the extrapolations for charmonium production from the present p-A data to RHIC energies, based on the two scaling laws, differ by a factor of four.
