Dear Roberta, Elena and Torsten, apologies that I come so late with my comments - I had read the text earlier, but did not find time to write down the comments, unfortunately. In general your chapter is nice, I found the text here and there improvable, see below a few suggestions I have. regards, anton

- in the introduction, you tend to use generic - and much worn - language like "have been considered", "so-called QGP", "is thought to be"... I would try to minimize such expressions.

"additional" (charmonium production mechanism) is not optimal

Actually some of the general-character paragraphe in your introduction would find their way in the general introduction of the review, I think. This includes the R_AA paragraph, I think.

- l.53: "which can counteract" is not optimal, at least I don't see this as counteraction

- l.60: "Y are" -> The Y mesons

- in Fig. 1 left, for the range 6-10 GeV/c there seems to be no CMS, it is a bit unfair to CMS

- in Tables 2,3 the yield dN/dpT is what is measured too, both at RHIC and at the LHC, isn't it? Table 2 contains a lot of repetitions, but we have to live with this I guess

- l.81: "initial" not needed

- l.82: "its" -> their

- l.93: discussion of the psi(2S) production ? - Table 4: I would not call the quarkonia resonances, simply "mesons"?

- l.114: "on the lattice we concentrate" is too colloquial

- l.128: "To briefly summarize ..." this whole sentence makes not much sense to me. Also the next sentences sound too colloquial, I would try a bit more stiff

- l.137: "difficult, ill-defined" ... I would say or-or, you cannot have both. And if ill-defined let's not discuss it even.

- l.149: "one encounters 'feed-down'" sounds funny

- l.152: "so that the medium affects the excited state" ?

- l.156: "disappear" ?

- l.158: "An observation..." this sentence reads like 20 years ago, I would propose to try a variation

- in Fig.8 psi lowercase

- sect. 2.4 in the title is "behaviour" the most appropriate word? it doesn't sound to me ..."production" is better, I think

- about Fig.24, the small R_AA values at high pT: I think we should not shy saying that this is the outcome of charm energy loss in deconfined matter (this of course does not explain quantitatively why the D and J/psi values are so coincident, but it is a generic expectation and we shall mention it).
