We compute the suppression of the bottomonia states Υ ( 1 S ) , Υ ( 2 S ) , Υ ( 3 S ) , χ b ( 1 P ) , χ b ( 2 P ) , and χ b ( 3 P ) states in Large Hadron Collider (LHC) s N N = 5.023 TeV Pb-Pb collisions. For the background evolution we use 3+1d anisotropic hydrodynamics with conditions extrapolated from s N N = 2.76 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 R A A as function of centrality, rapidity, and p T for the Υ ( 1 S ) and Υ ( 2 S ) 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, 4 π η / s { 1 , 2 , 3 } , and the initial momentum-space anisotropy parameter, ξ 0 { 0 , 10 , 50 } , while holding the total light hadron multiplicity fixed.
