We compute the suppression of the bottomonia states
states in Large Hadron Collider (LHC)
TeV Pb-Pb collisions. For the background evolution we use 3+1d anisotropic hydrodynamics with conditions extrapolated from
TeV and we self-consistently compute bottomonia decay rates including non-equilibrium corrections to the interaction potential. For our final results, we make predictions for
as function of centrality, rapidity, and
states, including feed down effects. In order to assess the dependence on some of the model assumptions, we vary the shear viscosity-to-entropy density ratio,
, and the initial momentum-space anisotropy parameter,
, while holding the total light hadron multiplicity fixed.
