1303.2858 (J. P. Lansberg)

Psi(2S) production in proton-proton collisions at RHIC, Tevatron and LHC

J. P. Lansberg
We briefly review the existing psi(2S) data taken at RHIC, the Tevatron and the LHC. We systematically compare them with colour-singlet-model predictions as a function of the center-of-mass energy, of the quarkonium rapidity and of the quarkonium transverse momentum. The overall agreement is good except for large transverse momenta. This points at the existence of large NNLO corrections or points at colour-octet dominance.
