Title: Quarkonium production in coherent hadron-hadron interactions at the CERN LHC

Abstract

The photoproduction of quarkonium in coherent hadron-hadron (pp/pA/AA) interactions for LHC energies is an important tool to investigate the QCD dynamics at high energies. In this paper we estimate the integrated cross section and rapidity distribution for J/{psi} and {upsilon} production using the color glass condensate (CGC) formalism. We predict large rates, implying that the experimental identification could be feasible at the LHC.
