Title: Heavy-Flavor Production at RHIC with STAR

Abstract

Heavy-flavor particles have been suggested as an excellent probe to study properties of the Quark-Gluon Plasma, a new state of matter discovered in high-energy heavy-ion collisions. In these proceedings, we report a few highlighted results on heavy-flavor production from the STAR experiment, including the first physics results obtained with the newly installed Heavy Flavor Tracker for open heavy flavor and the Muon Telescope Detector for quarkonium studies. These results are compared to results from other experiments and theoretical calculations, and the physics implications are also discussed.
