Title: Charm production at RHIC

Abstract

The latest results for open charm and J/{psi} production in p-p, d-Au and Au-Au from the PHENIX and STAR experiments at {radical}s{sub NN} = 200 GeV at RHIC are presented. The preliminary data show open charm production follows binary scaling in d-Au and Au-Au collisions at RHIC. In d-Au collisions, a suppression in J/{psi} production has been observed at the forward rapidity (d direction), at the backward rapidity (Au direction), J/{psi} production seems strongly dependent on collisions centrality. The implications of heavy flavor production in cold (d-Au) and hot (Au-Au) nuclear media at RHIC are discussed.
