Flavor Dependence of Meson Melting Temperature in Relativistic Potential

Shuzhe Shi, Xingyu Guo, Pengfei Zhuang
We study the melting temperature of heavy mesons in the hot medium of light quarks. By solving the covariant Schr\"odinger equations at finite temperature for mesons $D$, $\phi$ and $J/\psi$, we obtained the temperature dependence of their masses, binding energies and averaged sizes and found the flavor dependence of the melting temperature: $T_D < T_\phi < T_{J/\psi}$. The sequential melting temperature can explain the difference in meson elliptic flow in heavy ion collisions.
